“The Donald does it again”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

Truly, this is my new favorite hotel.....the service is superb, the people who work at the hotel seem sincere and as though they truly care about their guests. The building is state of the art with all of the modern amenities you can expect at a tip-top hotel!

The only thing I didn't like is that there were babies and children in the bar/lounge...I really don't want to listen to a crying baby when I am drinking my 5'oclock martini...aren't some places sacred????!!!!

We travelled recently with our 4 month old daughter. Pre-reservation requirements of baby cot and other essentials were well honored, and the room, quality of attention and overall feeling was at the highest standard. We got 2-3 calls during our stay to see if all was fine, and even the request for a hand shower in the shower room was met with a technician changing the setting and adapting a hand shower. A first class experience. And the tall lady at the reception on the ground floor was so welcoming and warm. One of our best experiences. We`ll be back in six months

We stayed for 8 nights and had no complaints. Staff is some of the friendliest we've encountered in 20+ years of visiting Hawaii. The valets especially are very helpful and genuinely nice people. My husband and I had some treatments at the spa and found our therapists to be very good.

One weird detail: I could touch the ceiling of our bathroom and I'm 5ft 4in so I'm guessing the ceiling was only 7ft. The ceiling popped up a bit in the bedroom and sitting area, but overall the feeling it gave was still a little bit claustrophobic. Taller people might not be comfortable in this setting.

Even though this is not a beach-front hotel, in the public areas such as the lobby bar the designers did a wonderful job of capitalizing on views over the treetops of the neighboring park. The hotel does give off a big city, Manhattan type of vibe but that's in keeping with the Trump brand. In my opinion the architects did the absolute best they could with this piece of property, to maximize views and minimize the impact of other buildings.

Is this the #1 hotel in all of Honolulu? Personally I would put it at #3 behind the Halekulani and the Kahala, but that is based on my love of those two properties and not anything particularly wrong with the Trump. It is definitely one of the best hotels in Honolulu.

Our family of 5 stayed for 4 nights. We booked a 2 bedroomed suite. The facilities of the suite where excellent, although we didn't used most of them (eg the kitchen). The main bathroom was wonderful and we loved the spa bath. The little extras where nice eg bags for the beach (including apples, water and sun cream) and shoe cleaning, although you are obviously getting what you pay for! The children where well treated. The staff where very accommodating. Location wise, the hotel is well placed and in walking distance to good shops and restaurants. The only thing I was uncomfortable with was the number of people running around after us eg three people came to attend to the suite twice a day. I found this a little intrusive.

We stayed here for 5 days to celebrate a milestone birthday. From the time we arrived until we left, we experienced exemplary service by the staff. Everyone was so very warm and friendly. Concierge was super helpful with every request. As others have experienced, we were also upgraded from a deluxe studio to a 1 bedroom suite. Gorgeous room, my DH did not want to leave. Food in the lounge was wonderful and the mai tai really was the best I had, after sampling many on three islands. We also liked the location, Waikiki is only steps away. You are also very close to Roy's, the Halekulani's restaurants and Duke's.
The only quibble with this magnificent hotel is that housekeeping was not quite up to the rest of the wonderful service at the hotel.
Should note that the charge for overnight valet parking is $30.
The Trump is our first choice whenever we return to Waikiki.

We stayed at the Trump Waikiki for 5 nights in June 2012. It was our first trip to Hawaii so we did not know what exactly to expect. We booked online several months in advance and were in touch with a hotel concierge beforehand who was very helpful in suggesting activities and accommodating our room request. We arrived and were greeted to a nice welcome from a friendly staff. We booked a studio room but were upgraded to a 1 bedroom suite overlooking the beach.

The room was really nice and far exceeded our expectations. The full kitchen was incredible. The bed was very comfortable, the bathroom was beautiful and it also had a washer and dryer which was really nice. The only downside to the room was noise from the street which we could hear fairly easily even up on the 18th floor. This did not bother us at all and it was just average background street noise. The room gets 5 stars from us.

The food all around was great. We ate breakfast at the hotel every day, once getting room service and the other days at the buffet downstairs. Both were outstanding. We also got room service for dinner one night and a late night snack another time. The room service overall was tasty and reasonable priced for what you get. They did confuse our orders with another room on two occasions but otherwise the service was respectable. We also had a few drinks at the bar downstairs where they offer the "world's best mai tai." It is not your average mai tai and I thought it was excellent. The bar overall was nice. The food gets 5 stars from us.

As should be the case with any 5 star hotel, the service is what makes this hotel great. There were small glitches here and there such as with the room service but overall there were no problems at all. Everyone went out of their way to be friendly and helpful. Julia and Dean were the two most helpful and made our stay truly memorable. The next time we are in Honolulu, I don't think there's any question about where we'll stay. This is a great hotel.

I have stayed at many fine hotels, but I think this one tops them all for customer service. At many higher-end establishments, there is a bit of an attitude, bu here, everyine seemed genuinely friendly and eager to help and make us feel welcome. The concierges were top-notch (concierge service starts before you arrive, with a welcoming email/attachments with pages of restaurant and activity recommendations, and prompt and personal answers to any questions you might have). Leis upon arrival, beach bags for loan every am, filled with towels, water, fresh fruit, suntan lotion. Very well appointed rooms and excellent, twice daily housekeeping service (especially nice knowing you can come back sandy after a day at the beach, take a shower before dinner, and come back later that eveving and find the room freshly made up again for you!)
