Trump International Hotel Waikiki
Ranked #4 of 84 Hotels in Honolulu
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 21, 2013

The room was large for Honolulu and beautifully decorated. The staff was overwhelmingly helpful, courteous and friendly. They made us feel important and appreciated.

The breakfast was great. I didn't have any of the complimentary food in the evening, but my wife did and enjoyed it. Complimentary bottled water day or night was nice, too.

My husband and I could not rate this hotel more highly. All the staff were so friendly and helpful that we almost felt like royality.
We had a very early check in and a very late check out at no extra cost. They also gave us a free upgrade from a one bedroom premium suite to a two bedroom suite. Two bedrooms, three bathrooms, three balconies with wonderful views of both diamond head and the ocean. The suite was very spacious, and equipped with everything to complete a perfect holiday. Having a washing machine and dryer was a nice bonus, especially after been on holiday for a few weeks.
The trump supply so many little extras that there are two many too mention.
I have never experienced such wonderful customer service before, not only from one or two exceptional staff but from all the staff.
There is a good gymn with modern equipment. The pool would be considered small, but has the advantage of length, giving you the rare opportunity to do laps. It has a lovely ambience to it with lovely views.
The location is nice and quiet, yet just around the corner from shops and across the road from the beach. There is also a trolley stop outside the hotel which will take you to the main shopping centre for just $2.00. A taxi will cost around $10.00, tip included.
Well done Trump you have set a very high and impressive standard:-).

Room Tip: We had room 3406 and it was perfect.

We were expecting a lot from this hotel because it's a Trump and because it's not cheap and we certainly were not disappointed. We arrived late at night after a long, long journey but they made us feel unbelievably welcome and were just so nice. They knew it was a special occasion and without asking they had left some treats in the room which was a nice touch. The room itself (Deluxe Studio Ocean View) was exactly as described and was a great room, just the right size with everything you need, if not more. The internet was free....other big hotel chains should take note! The concierge was helpful with directions and advice and generally all of the staff were amazing. The location is perfect, not on the beach but within seconds walk to it plus the hotel will give you a bag to take to the beach with water, towels, sun cream and fruit - again, a nice touch and typical of the little things you expect from this brand,
We loved it and wouldn't hesitate to stay in this or any Trump again. Worth every penny and I'm sure it's not even that much more expensive than other chain hotels in Waikiki.

Room Tip: Our room was on the 22nd floor and was an ocean view room which was fab. If you want this you need t...

This is truly a great 5 star hotel bringing perfect location, service, rooms, value for money too.It is away from the noise of city and yet just a couple of minutes to walk for reaching the action. The beach is just a few steps too. It is not over crowded in the hotel and rooms are large and well equipped.

As i write this I'm so sad we'll be leaving tomorrow. But everything has to end.

Staying here is totally amazing. Shops and restaurants nearby, everybody is genuinely nice. Bottled water everyday on turn down service (we made a mistake of buying 2 liters of water at the ABC store thinking the bottled water is available only on the first night).

You can also ask for super cold bottled water from the concierge before you leave the hotel to wherever you're going.

Concierge and valet welcomes you warmly.

Beach kit is a welcome treat as well.

Sheets and the bedding are the softest. They send you an email asking for your pillow preference before you arrive too.

We arrived in the morning and was elated to have checked in at that time and ecstatic when we found out we got a fantastic upgrade!

Asked if we were celebrating something on this trip. I said no but my son's birthday is this month.

When we returned on the next day there was a very good chocolate cake waiting for us! Along with a box of Honolulu Cookie Company treats and even popcorn for my teens!!!

Will definitely stay here next time and will definitely recommend to friends. I don't think I can even stay anywhere else!

Thank you so much Trump hotel staff!!!!

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.

Wow this hotel is amazing!
Staff are so friendly, attentative and efficient!
Rooms are nice, very clean and cleaned everyday. Everyday, a staff member will ask you if you would like your bed turned and provide you with bottled water.
If you are off to the beach, trump will provide you with a beach bag, fresh fruit, water, towels and sunscreen.
Even sitting by the trump pool is nice (although not big and probably more like a lap pool) staff will continually ask you for drinks, food, clean up after you, make sure the pool area is always tidy and even provide you with free samples of smoothies!
The buffet breakfast was very yummy, lots of great food to cater for everyone!

I really can't fault this place, no wonder is it number 1 on trip advisor in Waikiki, it deserves to be! You get treated like royalty in this place!

Our attaché department's main goal is to reach out to each and every guest to insure that any needs or requests are fulfilled before they begin their vacation (and then again as they are departing!) . In this way, we hope that you feel very special before, during and after your trip!

Additionally, although we also recognize that most guests love the beaches in Hawaii, we know they like to visit the pool. Therefore, when you return, please be sure to check out the enhancements of the area and amenities that will be in place in the next few weeks.

MAHALO again - we look forward to your next visit.
