Reviewed 17 August 2014

We stayed there in Oct, 2013 for 10 nights in an ocean view room. The room was beautiful. We had plenty of room as when we arrived we were upgraded to a two bedroom suite, which was such a pleasant surprise. Had a great stay. The room was luxurious, staff were so friendly and helpful. We are already planning our next visit.

We stayed in unit 2010 and booked it with Hawaii 50, our first experience with them. It was flawless. The unit was exactly as described and then some. I didn't expect the kitchen to be so well stocked. The complimentary water bottles seemed to never end, which was great.

Cathy was a great waitress at In-Uo cafe for breakfast buffet! She was very attentive and shared her aloha spirit with us. She made great smoothies too! We were at breakfast twice and she remembered us!

Checking was a breeze and we were spoiled with the great service of all the employees here. They truly go out of their way to make it special. The complimentary beach bags were a fabulous and well thought idea to make our stay even more comfortable.

Waikiki beach is a two minute walk. Friday night fireworks at the beach were nice but short.

Hotel is centrally located with short drives to diamond head, Pearl Harbor, etc.

Would definitely recommend staying here again!

Don't know why I went here. Seemed a good idea at the time but really not for me. Too touristy and artificial for me. Perhaps great if that is your thing but not mine. Sorry. Should have gone somewhere lower key for my vacation. Food pretty blah and not inspiring but a great little restaurant down the road which I will review in a different blog on here.

My husband and I got married in Honolulu last year and stayed at the hotel for 5 nights. Everything about the hotel is beyond amazing. The staffs are super friendly and helpful. On our wedding day, we had our guests waiting at the lobby area for a limo to pick them up to the ceremony site. It was a really hot day and the staffs were asking everybody if they want some iced bottled waters. I mean, that is great customer service! The one bedroom suite that we stayed at is beautiful and very well maintained . Housekeeping did a great job at cleaning and turndown everyday. We also really like the fact that they granted us a late check out because we had a 10pm flight. We just love everything about the hotel so much that I told my husband we need to stay here everytime we come to Honolulu and we are keeping our promise. We are booked for November and are staying at Trump again. Can't wait to come back!

Myself and my husband stayed here for 9 nights on the first leg of our honeymoon. We chose this hotel based on the excellent TripAdvisor reviews and they were spot on. This is a classy hotel full of excellent amenities. You can read about them in detail in the other reviews.
The jewel in the crown of this hotel is the staff. Nothing is too much trouble and their manners are impeccable. We checked in really late and we were so tired! The staff made the experience fast and pleasant, a gift as we saw people queuing to check into other hotels nearby. Our studio was upgraded on arrival and we got an ocean view. As you can imagine, facilities in the hotel are expensive so, if you are on a budget, maybe pick one treat per day from the hotel as we did. The fact that the studio had a kitchen meant that we could stock up and not just rely on the hotel for food. We also discovered a fantastic website called room service in paradise which delivered food to the hotel from over 50 local restaurants. We had quite the culinary adventure without having to leave our room.
We received a welcome gift on arrival - gorgeous cookies. Then, after a few nights, another gift- chocolates! Personal touches like that makes this hotel stand out.
We stayed here as two hurricanes threatened the islands. The staff were absolutely superb! They explained everything to us and kept us up to date on the news as they kept the hotel running like clockwork during what must have been a stressful time. Luckily the hurricanes didn't hit Oahu in the end.
A special thanks to the housekeeping staff who worked around our schedule in cleaning the room and keeping us supplied with anything we needed.
On our final day we were given a late check out time of 7pm to facilitate our late night flight. Nothing was too much trouble.
This hotel has a lot of Japanese guests. It was lovely to learn more about the Japanese culture as we talked to fellow guests and tried the Japanese food served at the hotel. Little tip when ordering dishes in the hotel: ask if the dish is cooked or raw and what size the portion is. The staff are lovely and happy to help.
Overall, I can't praise this hotel enough. It was a special place to stay and got our honeymoon off to the best possible start. It was worth the 30+ hours travel time from Ireland when this hotel is waiting at the other end! While you expect excellent facilities in such a hotel, it really is the staff that makes it special. My only negative feeling was the sadness of leaving after 9 wonderful nights.

I would like to send a special thank you to Maryann in guest services. I lost my prescription glasses in the surf & did not have a written prescription with me. Trump was the first stop on a multicountry vacation. Maryann called to check in, when I apprised her of my situation she immediately called her local contacts at Hi Trend eyewear. Thanks to Jeffrey Yip at Hi Trend who brought in an optician within the hour, I had a new prescription and sunglasses delivered to my room at trump by 3pm the next day. I am very grateful to Maryann for going above & beyond. She really had such a positive impact on my vacation. Hotel itself is one block from the beach and you must purchase your beach space which is less than ideal. Customer service was fabulous!

Simply an outstanding and beautiful property adjacent to a park and about one block off the beach. Everything you could need is anticipated - small and thoughtful touches everywhere. The staff at every turn anticipates your needs and is incredibly responsive. The food in the hotel is so good, you don't even have to go out for dinner, but if you did, the hotel is right in an extensive shopping and dining area. We had a three bedroom suite for our family of six adults and had a great time together. It's not an inexpensive experience but Trump delivers.

Room Tip: I can't imagine this beautiful hotel having a bad room! We stayed in a three bedroom suite on 2...
