“honeymoon in Waikiki”
Reviewed November 25, 2012

What an excellent hotel! We arrived in Waikiki on our honeymoon. We were greeted warmly and with a Lei and taken to our room on the 21st floor - a 1 br suite. The bathroom was amazing - a wetroom type shower and a deep soaking tub, king size bed that was SO comfortable with an amazing doona and sumptious pillows. We had a partial ocean view, looking towards diamond head. The staff are very focused on how YOU are. We were disappointed that as a honeymoon couple, we were not recognised as such - our travel agent did put this in the booking and suggested we take our wedding certificate as proof for upgrade options and welcome champagne - neither of which we got. However, having been here for a week we realised that it did not matter. We did get Honolulu cookie company biscuits that are yummy, you get a great beach bag daily with 2 pcs fruit, 2 drinks, sunscreen and towels and it is a short walk to the beach. The pool was small and there were lots of people, but as we are so close to the beach, it did not matter. The beach nearby is rocky, going closer to Diamond head you dont get the rocks. We shopped at ABC and ate brekkie at Outrigger (which offers a discount when you go back). Dinner at the hotel (not BLT) was expensive and the meal yummy but small. We hired a car and took advantage of the great Valet service. The valet staff and concierge staff are fantastic. we would definitely stay again! Oh and the room service was twice daily for us, with bottled water!

Room Tip: The higher you go, the better - we faced Diamond Head, but if you can face the side the 6th floor lo...

This is what every hotel should aspire to! The staff remember your name, there are all very friendly and the location is excellent for exploring Waikiki. We've been to Oahu many times before and this time decided to stay in a top end resort, we chose the Trump due to the many top reviews the hotel gets and believe me they deserve it.

Our room was a small studio overlooking Beachwalk, we had room number 916. If you get chance to book this room go for it, you can see the water from the balcony and the room is gorgeous, plenty of room and comes equipped with a kitchen so you can cook your own meals if you desire.

Within walking distance are numerous restaurants, so you'll be spoilt for choice.

The pool is not the biggest you've ever seen, but the staff bring around fruit and little nibbles for you as you sit around the pool, all free, they also layout your towels for you and make sure the area is clean and spotless, all done with a smile.

Check in was easy as is check out, we arrived on an early morning Jet Star flight from Sydney, arriving very tired, but that's another review for later. We got to the Trump well before check in time, like 9am in the morning, but the hotel were kind enough to give us a room so we could freshen up and have a sleep and a cup of coffee until our room was ready, free of charge.

Tell me any other hotel that provides that service for you?

One of the best hotels we've ever had the pleasure of staying at. Highly recommended.

We stayed at Trump Waikiki from 11/19/12 to 11/22/12. The hotel was beautiful,we were greeted with a nice lei upon arrival. The staff were very cheerful,welcoming and efficient. The lobby area provided a great first impression.We checked out the pool area right away, it was small but really beautiful,very adult. The room was nice,we had a balcony that has a partial ocean view,and a nice view of the embassy suites pool area across the way which was always hustling and bustling. The beach access was just across the street.The concierge provided us with a beach bag loaded with fruit,water,towels and sunscreen. Each time we left our room we came back to a clean room,evem when we used the full kitchen. We will definitely use the Trump brand of hotels for future vacations

We normally don't stay in high end properties, but Trump had a special that included the fourth night "free" when you stay for three nights. This hotel was a treat. The location was excellent and the staff was very friendly. Our room had a fridge and microwave, which was very handy for snacks from the local 7-eleven and ABC stores. The bar and pool area restaurant wait-staff were very attentive and cordial. The pool size didn't bother us as the ocean is just a short walk away. Our room was very clean and wifi worked well. The only complaint is the small size of our closet (I don't think we have ever had a closet that small in a hotel). A very minor complaint, though. We will stay here again on our next trip to Oahu, probably even if they don't have a room special!

As soon as you walk in it feels expensive and sumptuous. The room was small and we were tripping over each other and our luggage. Bathroom was in comparison much more spacious. Kitchen was just un-necessary for us and very small, wouldn't have wanted to try and cook there. No laundry facilities in our room. If you are staying long enough to need a kitchen then you are doing hawaii all wrong. You need to island hop and explore, each island is different and you will be missing out. We did 4 islands in 2 weeks.
Restaurant in lobby was good. Beach is one block walk away. Starbucks is on that block. Great mall a 5 min drive away.

We cannot rate this hotel high enough. You get what you pay for and we were not disappointed.
We (4 adults and one child) spent 8 nights in a 2 br + den ocean view appartment. We were upgraded from a 2 bedroom (without asking, nice surprise) and it made such a difference as the apartments are not huge. We were on the 18th floor and had sensational views.
We travelled with a young child and we were worried about taking him to Trump, but they made such a fuss of him with toys, books, videos, chocolates - he was spoilt rotten.
The service is impecable, so very attentive. Tipping is appreciated but they don't hang around waiting for it. Twice daily room service (including turndown), dishes are done, towels and sheets changed (were done daily for us but they say every second day), fridge stocked with bottled water, like walking into a new room every day.
The pool is on the small side, but perfect for lounging and getting lost in the view. Also perfect to watch the Friday night fireworks from the pool deck.
It's no problem walking 2 minutes to the beach, I'd suggest turning right and walk up towards the Hilton, there is a jetty and a sort of cove / inlet there, the sand is free of rocks and much nicer underfoot.
Take advantage of the beach bags - sunscreen, water, towels and fruit, compimentary and very convenient.
We didn't eat at the restaurant as it didn't really look family firendly - more intimate and sophisticated than we were up for!
My only criticisms (if you can call them that) is that there is absolutely no where to hang a towel in the bathrooms and they take a "small" $200ish per day charge on your credit card to cover incidentals - in addition to the total room amount up front. This can be a bit of a surprise if you're not expecting it (adds up over 8 nights). It does drop of day by day if not used but still worth knowing about.

If it's within budget I would highly recommend.

Room Tip: Ocean view rooms are a bit pricier but the view is good, especially for Friday night fireworks.

We had an amazing time at the Trump! The staff made us feel like royalty the moment we stepped off the shuttle. We were escorted to our room by the attaché, who made sure that we were comfortable and had all our needs. Our room was even upgraded to a two-bedroom suite with a full den and a spectacular ocean view! My disabled mother felt like a queen, and I couldn't be happier with the memories we took away with us. Thank you to the hotel and entire staff for an exquisite time. If we ever return to the islands, we will definitely stay at The Trump again!
