The Trump Waikiki is a refreshing oasis from the frenetic energy of Waikiki. We only stayed one night, but we are already planning a return visit.
The check-in was fast, warm and friendly. Almost as on perfect cue, the sun was setting as we checked in. I can now understand why the lobby is on the 5th floor. The view is spectacular.
The room was great, with everything you could ask for. We booked the most basic studio level, but received an upgrade to a partial ocean view on a high floor. We were impressed with the kitchen set up. Even travel mugs and an ice machine. Bathroom was nice with lots of little extra amenities you don’t seem at most hotels, but had some issues with water leaking from shower, and the cleanliness was not perfect. Tub didn't look sparking enough to take a bath vs. shower, and several large dark long hairs on the white floor. Yuck! This may seem picky, but this now gets me concerned with cleanliness of rest of room. Everything else seemed fine.
The bed was extremely comfortable (although soft) and the linens were superbly soft and inviting! Upon arrival we called down for extra bottled water and it was delivered almost immediately (no charge).
Early the next morning went for a swim in the refreshing lap pool - so memorable. Not sure why people complain about this pool, I thought it was awesome. Great views. Long and thin, but perfect for early morning laps. Watched the morning get brighter, and a rainbow, yes, a rainbow appeared. This doesn't get any better.
On check-out I stopped at the concierge to get some ideas for a colleague that is coming to Waikiki in June. Even though it wasn't for me, and she wasn't staying at the hotel, I left with a handful of brochures, and the offer that she could call for assistance. What an amazing service attitude. Valet guys were great too!
We were in transit to the Big Island so our stay was short. We will definitely return again in December when we travel through Honolulu.
