“Elegant High Rise with Excellent Service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

We just returned from our first time visit to Hawaii, where we stayed at Waikiki Beach to see the sights on Oahu. We took a tour through Discover Hawaii Tours-- $99 for an all day tour including Pearl Harbor and the top of the island with large surfing waves, etc. Good guide. The Trump International had amazing staff and service, with fruit infused cold water and cool towels at check-in. They couldn't have been nicer-- every need was fulfilled, and the concierge staff gave us a lot of help with selecting restaurants and booking reservations, finding our way to various spots for shopping and sightseeing. The BLT restaurant had one of the best filets I have ever tasted!
They gave us a beach bag with sunscreen and water to walk one block to the beach, and booked the umbrella and two chairs for us, available at the stand on the beach. We would recommend this hotel to anyone going to Waikiki.

Room Tip: Our room was amazing-- they upgraded us to a suite with marble bath and shower, two vanity sinks, an...

From the moment we arrived until the moment we stepped into the cab to leave for the airport we were treated to outstanding service. Most high end hotels do not welcome families like this one. Both our daughters (9 & 12) were attended to as though they were paying customers as well.

Rooms were impeccably clean, food was amazing, location was perfect and I can't say enough about the service. Valet, bellhop, house keeping, pool staff and guest services get a 10+ from me.

I 100% recommend this hotel to anyone.

Room Tip: Ocean view is worth every penny

Reading some reviews after booking the hotel for our recent trip, I nearly canceled the reservation thinking it wasn't fit for families. So glad we decided to stick with it because Trump Waikiki and staff goes above and beyond to make children feel welcomed. By now you've read that upon arrival, you are greeted with leis and shell necklaces, then on the lobby floor, with water and cold towel. Excellent touch. As everyone else shared, beach bags stocked with water and fruit were also extremely appreciated. What I want to focus this review on is the "little things" they did to pre-empt your asks and make your stay even better!

First, my son loved the seal stuffed animal and activity set upon arrival in the room. The fruit plate was also very much appreciated. He loved having his own robe and slipper (adorable touch!) along with mommy and daddy's. What was most impressive was that they even gave us a stool in the bathroom to help him reach the sink...not even Disney Aulani did that!

The pool is not your typical large, resort pool, but it actually was quite well designed for kids, with plenty of shallow "landing" areas for young ones to soak their bodies. The fact that it wasn't a deep or large pool make it easy for you to stay close to your children, whether you're next to the pool, or in the hot tub. Very few guests were in the pool when we were there (most were tanning) so our son and other kids enjoyed their time in there.

Every time we got inside the car, every door was held open, and everyone offered to help with directions. When it was pouring, we were given very nice umbrellas to carry along, and they also made sure to cover us while we walked to the car. The staff members all stopped to say hi whenever my son wanted to chat with them.

The hotel is just a few steps from Eggs n' Things and several delicious Japanese restaurants (through back alley). And 2 blocks away, you'll find yourself in the heart of Waikiki with tons of shops, restaurants and tourists. The beach immediately in front of the hotel (cross the street) is a bit rocky but make a left turn, walk a bit more, you'll find yourself in much softer sand. For us, that wasn't a big deal at all to walk in the water a bit! Why would it be? The weather is gorgeous!

As a family, we had to stock up on milk, snacks, cereal, juices, etc. The kitchenettes came in SO handy!! We loved having a kitchen in a luxury hotel (versus having to rent an old condo). Balconies were huge too which made it easy for my husband and I to sneak out and enjoy some wine while our kid sleeps. The housekeeping was meticulous-- twice a day, and anything you used in the kitchen, is washed immediately or refilled.

If you need reservations for dining, don't even hesitate to use the Attache service. They truly take care of you! They also installed a Wii in our room since we have a little guy.

Finally, extra thanks to Dean, Dori and Ebi (?) who went out of their way to make us feel welcomed!

Room Tip: Partial ocean view room is only slightly more expensive than garden view...it's worth it. Just...

We are currently staying here at the Trump, it is everything and more than the reviews I have read.
From the moment stepped out of our airport transfer we have been greeted with wonderful hospitality.
Dennis on the concierge desk, so helpful and kind. We had a lovely evening at the Wai olu restaurant which was amazing!
The food was extra special, but in particular Jamie our waitress was just gorgeous, so attentive. Also last night in the Wai olu lounge the musician Johnna made a refreshing change to the usual Hawaiian singers, again amazing and so friendly. Our room is just as other reviewers have mentioned, views special but to the point you don't want to leave! This hotel is the reason many Australians keep coming back to Hawaii. Love it, don't bother thinking about booking any other hotel this is it!
And thank you to all the wonderful staff at the hotel! Mahalo

My wife and I came to the Trump Hotel for our 10th anniversary. It was a fantastic stay! The staff here are remarkably friendly, and very attentive to every need. The hotel itself while not on the beach, is only a couple minute walk to the beach. One of the nice surprises was that the hotel provides a beach bag that has sunblock, towels, water and fruit. My wife and I did rent a car, but in retrospect it probably wasn't needed. Even when we went to the Polynesian cultural Center and North Shore area, we took a a shuttle tour that was available directly through the PCC. I highly recommend that by the way. The valet fee is a little excessive, I actually prefer to park my own car, but it was nice not have to look for parking in the busy Waikiki Beach area.

For anybody looking to stay at the Trump Hotel, I can definitely say you will not be disappointed. It did feel just a bit formal for a beach vacation though. I think next time we may try the Outrigger, or even the Royal Hawaiian. Both of those felt a little bit more Hawaiian, while the trump had a more city feel.

Trump International Hotel is a tranquil oasis where understated elegance meets sheer indulgence .Upon arrival, we received beautiful leis and were promptly checked in. By the time we have reached our room, the bell boy was already there greeting us with a box of Hawaiian cookies. Our spacious room on 20th floor had all the necessary comforts: soft bed, high quality linens, wonderful bathroom amenities, free and fast wi-fi. The small kitchen was well equipped adding to the homey atmosphere. The hotel also provides great beach bags with towels, cold water, fresh fruit, and even sunscreen! I loved it so much, I bought one!

The infinity pool however is very small, waist-deep and very narrow. The pool area is also small and very crowded.

Dinning - Wai'olu lounge has beautiful views but the food is extremely mediocre and overpriced. It is the only area of the hotel where the service is spotty. If you want to give them a try, take advantage of the happy hours specials between 3 and 6. BLT Steak downstairs is open only for dinner. We had dinner there twice and absolutely loved it! Great food, impressive wine selection and wonderful service.
Overall, great hotel, impeccable service. We will be back for sure!

Room Tip: Treat yourself to a dinner at BLT! Sit on the lovely patio and let the staff to treat you like a roy...

This hotel is still as good as the first time we stayed here shortly after it opened. Excellent staff, great service and the personal touch. They even stored some mail from 18 months ago. Highly recommended.
