    We are currently at the Modern Honolulu. This is DRI's latest acquisition. It is a good location. Currently all Hotel Rooms. We have a partial Ocean View. Unfortunately not all the Rooms have balconies. We had a great view of the Friday Night Fireworks at the Hilton next door. They have started the conversion to Condos with partial kitchens. No oven. Will have 2 burner stove top, dish washer, full sized frig, and laundry in room. Similar to KBC. They are basically taking 3 hotel rooms and converting them to 2 Condos. They hope to be done in less than 18 months. We have learned to use the Bus System. For Seniors and Retired Military you can get an all day pass for $2.00. We took the Bus to near Diamond Head. Walked into Diamond Head Park and then hiked up to the Rim. We have walked all over Waikiki. Staff is friendly and helpful. We did the update. Pretty painless and no high pressure. Got $200 in Vouchers which paid all but $39 for our snorkel trip. Saw Mama Whales, Baby Whales, turtles, etc on the snorkel trip. Yesterday the person the sets up the free morning coffee by the Pool did not show or call (hope they are ok). As soon as the Restaurant by the Pool found out they started handing out free coffee. Largest Food Court we have ever seen at the Ala Moana Center. Tomorrow is a day of rest. Monday we do the Polynesian Center. Tuesday we fly home. We plan on coming back after the conversion is done. All in all a good trip.
