“Eperience Extraordinaire!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 June 2014

From the nicely appointed rooms, to the friendly, helpful staff, to the ambience, and amenities, this hotel exceeded our expectations. While not directly on the beach, it is literally a stone's throw stroll, and you'll be pampered with your own beach towels (as many as you like), sunscreen, water, and an insulated beach bag. Once there, we were fortunate to make the acquaintance of the Trump Beach Walk's Beach Assistant named Al'li who took an interest in activities we had planned and gave us some great advice. We are 'ocean' people so the fact that the pool was not massive didn't matter to us. It was perfect for a quick dip on a hot day.

Room Tip: Higher floor, west facing for best views.

This is the third time we have stayed at the Trump Hotel, Waikiki and it just feels like coming home each time we visit. We love it! Nothing is too much trouble for the lovely staff and they go out of their way to be attentive to your every need. On this visit, we were upgraded to a one bedroom with a den overlooking Fort DeRussy and the beach, so we could watch the Hilton fireworks from our balcony. The beach view is stunning as are the sunset views. There was even a beautiful "Welcome Back" floral arrangement on the dining table! Rooms at Trump are spacious and well appointed and the bathrooms are stocked with good range of toiletries. I love the thick dressing gowns! One of the reasons that we like this hotel so much is that they have really thought about what people need when they are on holiday. For example, an insulated bag with two towels, two bottles of water, an apple, an orange and sunscreen are provided for you when you go to the beach. Complimentary bottles of water each day are also great when you are going out for a walk. We like the location of this hotel as it is not too far from great restaurants and it is not as crowded as other parts of Waikiki.

Room Tip: Choose a room on the Saratoga Road side so that you have the lovely beach views.

Only 400 feet from the beach where you can rent all sorts of water toys and boards. Numerous diners and grocery stores nearby also, if you want to cook yourself. We rented a delux suite and were upgraded to a one room suite with a full kitchen plus washer and dryer. Get the ocean view room. We loved the pool. Its perfectly placed on the south side of the building on the 6th floor, so its always in the sun and there is always a nice breeze. There are always places to sit in the shade if you like.
The staff is awesome.From the minute you first arrive until you leave they treat you like family. Without a doubt this is the best hotel experience you could hope for.

Room Tip: Choose a kitchen and make some of your own meals. The food prices in Hawaii are expensive.

After reading amazing reviews of the Trump Waikiki I planned a 3 day stay at this property with my wife and two kids as part of a 10 day trip to Hawaii (Oahu and Kauai). As soon as we arrived at the hotel we were taken to the lobby and were offered cold towels and flavored water before check in as well Hawaiian necklaces as part of welcome reception. We had booked a one bedroom studio ocean view and were upgraded to a two bedroom studio ocean view. When we arrived at the room we were speechless with the quality, size and attention to details of the room. Simply amazing!!! The room was gigantic with two full bathrooms, full high end size kitchen, two balconies, two sofa beds, dinning table and laundry. There was a box of local shortbread cookies and many free bottles of water. However, the attention to our kids was amazing. There were two stuffed animals (whales), cake pops, bath robes and slippers, coloring books and crayons as well as an envelop in the name of each of my kids with a welcoming letter and information about free kids movies and video games they could order in the room. Remember, all free. That is where Trump puts itself in a category above other luxury hotels. I say that because we already paid more than $600 per night for the room so Trump does an amazing job in not charging extras for small details that makes your stay very special. Most hotels charge you for everything but I prefer to pay more for my rate but be pampered without having to pay extra for everything. Also, the toiletries products were amazing and they thought about every luxury product we could ever need. In the bathroom there was a little plastic bench so the kids could reach the faucet. Again, small details that amazed us. Next day we went for breakfast which was included for 2 under my Fine Hotels and Resorts package and the quality and selection was amazing. There was an American and a Japanese buffet which you could get anything. Also, they had a menu of other options you could order at no charge. Again, great quality at no extra fees. My kids ordered fresh made pancakes, waffles and fruit smoothies. We got cold milk chocolate and one of the best cappuccinos I had in many years. Then we asked for our car to head to the beaches. By the time we got downstairs the concierge ladies were phenomenal. They packed a beach bag for us with beach towels, sunscreen, cold water and fresh fruits and provided personalized maps and attractions depending on what area of the island we wanted to visit. Once more the attention to details was jaw dropping. In sum, we had an amazing stay at the Trump and we are already planning our next trip back to Honolulu next year or I should probably say our trip back to Trump Waikiki next year. If you are looking for luxurious accommodations and likes to be treated like royalty this is the place to stay. I never stayed at a Trump hotel before but if all the properties that carry the Trump name have the same customer service as the one in Waikiki I will become a loyal customer from now on.

The staff at the hotel were excellent. They really know how to do it right at Trump International and made our stay enjoyable. They have a beach bag with towels and water and fruit for your short walk to the beach. The valet service was a bit pricey, and we really didn't NEED a car, but it came in handy for driving around the island and being on our own schedule. They even came to help with a computer issue over the weekend! Very helpful staff.

Room Tip: Beachfront view was beautiful!

I could not find anything negative to say about this hotel. We have been going to Hawaii every other year for the past decades and have tried many different hotels in Waikiki. We must admit, this is absolutely the best place to stay in Honolulu. When you arrive (by car) you are immediately greeted at the valet area on the ground floor and escorted to the lobby (6th floor) where everything is taken care of. The room we got on the 33rd floor - rm 3301 (2 bd suite) had a fantastic view of Waikiki Beach, the lagoon area of Hilton, and Kalakuau area. In my opinion, the best view possible. A little bonus, on Friday evening (and I think Tuesday also), just pull up a chair at the balcony and get the best view of the fireworks display at Hilton without being there. The location at Trump is a couple of blocks away from the hustle and bustle of Kalakaua Rd itself, so you get a little peace and quiet. Plus there is a park across the street which gives you a nice contrast to the concrete building littering Waikiki.

The room was spacious and comfortable. There is a fully stocked kitchen (Wolf appliance!!), washer-dryer which was helpful as we just came in from Lanai, 2 full luxuriously decorated bathroom, DVD player and a Wii for the kids (to keep them occupied at night as we are winding down). Twice a day housekeeping service with telepathy (they seem to know when we were leaving, clean up the rooms, and completed by the time we return from breakfast or dinner). The room was spotless, credit to the housekeeping team.

We did not enjoy any of the restaurants in the hotel since we made plans at our regular hang out places, but next time, we will make it a point to try it. Room service for breakfast was very good. Plenty of fully ripened tropical fruits and good pastries. (We found a local fruit store just downstairs on Beachwalk Blvd that sold pre-cut fresh fruits for a fraction of the price....I think its called Henry's Place...).

Any negatives at all? Well, the pool is a little on the small side on the 6th floor (we skipped it). The master bedroom shower had no doors (minor irritation), the valet area can get congested during checkout/dinner time (but wait time was no more than 5 minutes or so - enough time for them to unload luggages mainly from airport shuttles and buses), and phone system that had to be reset twice (second time, we just unplugged the phone and replugged it after 30 seconds - no big deal). All these inconveniences and very minor.

Therefore, without hesitation, the absolute best place I've stayed in Hawaii. Fantastic guest services. The price can be a little expensive, but there is always some good deals so check on the Trump website. We were able to change our reservation 2X as better packages and deals became available. We finally got the room at a price that was quite reasonable. It does cost a little more than the surrounding condo/hotels (ie 2 bedrooms, full kitchen full service), but nothing in its price range (or any price range) can beat the combination of service, location, convenience, and comfort (including The Halekulani). In the end, if its a memorable stay, then its worth it.

Room Tip: The higher the floor, the better the view. Get one facing the Hilton Hawaiian Village lagoon so you...
