I would start by banging the bottom of the gas tank while you are cranking it over. If this causes it to start, replace the fuel pump. If it still doesn't start, there is a valve on the fuel rail on the top of the engine (you may have to remove plastic cover). Remove the plastic cap on the valve, and while you have someone cycle the ignition to the run position from the off position, depress the center tab on the valve and see if gas comes out. If it doesn't, replace the fuel pump. If it does, let me know and I will help you further. (note: replace fuel filer at same time.)

The first thing that needs to happen is to determine which SYSTEM is causing the problem. Is it the FUEL system or is it the IGNITION system? The symptoms you are describing could be caused by either.
The easiest way to check the ignition system is to pull one of the spark plug wires and check for spark when the engine is refusing to start. If there is no spark, you will probably have to replace your distributor (Very common problem with Hondas).
If you can cycle the key ON, OFF, ON, OFF, ON, CRANK - and it starts right up, then you are most likely losing the pressure off of you injector rails during a hot soak (shutting the engine off when it is hot). This can be caused by a bad fuel pressure regulator or a faulty fuel pump check valve. This can be verified by performing fuel pressure tests.
