“Couldn't have asked for more!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2014

We chose to stay at Trump Waikiki based on the positive reviews on TripAdvisor. We were a group of 8 so we had to find somewhere to satisfy everyone's requirements. We certainly found it with Trump! We arrived early in the morning after a long flight and were hoping we could leave our bags at he hotel whilst we had a quick look around and a bite to eat. We were then met by the Manager who advised us that he had arranged a room to leave our bags and freshen up while they finished preparing our room. He also advised that we had been upgraded to a 3 bedroom suite on the 35th floor. Our room was ready within hours and our suite was just amazing, with unobstructed ocean views, full kitchen, huge marble bath and very handy laundry with washer and dryer. The little extras like the truffles and Hawaiian cookies were also appreciated. Wherever we went in the resort the staff were amazing and went out of their way to help us. One staff member in particular in the restaurant I think her name was Tracy was amazing, giving us some tips on lovely beaches and even giving us a map and directions. We would not hesitate in recommending Trump to family and friends, thank you so much for making our stay so enjoyable.

We stayed at the Trump for 2 nights prior to our Hawaiian Cruise on Pride of America NCL. It was beyond spectacular. Upon arrival we were informed they upgraded us to a Suite with a Den . We opened the door to our room and we were in awe....we had a gorgeous living room , a seperate den area with sofa bed, the kitchen had built in oven and convection oven, stovetop stove, wine cooler fridge and everything that you could imagine in a fully equipped kitchen. We had 2 balconies with lounge furniture on them so we could watch the fireworks on the Friday night from our balcony over the ocean from Hilton . Our bathroom had 2 showers, whirlpool, lighted makeup mirror, beautiful spa amenities and ribbon wrapped around our Toilet paper. It was our anniversary so a nice card and some Hawaiian shortbread cookies were waiting for us to enjoy! The service was spectacular and the staff were so kind and full of Aloha greetings and smiles. We did not get to enjoy the pool as we were a bit tired coming on 2 time changes from the East on Ontario but it looked beautiful. It was about a 5 minute walk across the street and at the Concierge they give you a beach bag(insulated) fruit, water, and a beach towel to take with you to enjoy the beach along the grounds of Hilton Hawaiian Village. I know this is a bit pricier than most hotels but after this experience we will NEVER stay anywhere else when we return to Hawaii... It was worth every penny and more.We did a pearl Harbor and they booked it for us with E NOA tours and had our tickets waiting upon arrival. Mahalo to Trump for making our vacation spectacular!

Room Tip: Ask for a room that you can see the hilton fireworks.

As good as, and in some cases better than, most Four Seasons Hotels.

I stay here all the time on layovers between Maui and trips to Asia. Everyone is genuinely nice and they now know me by name. They all go out of their way to make one feel welcome. They truly embody the spirit of Aloha!

Room Tip: Unless it's your first time in Waikiki or you have the money to spend, choose a city view room...

Having stayed at the Halekulani and Moana Surfrider we chose the Trump for our babymoon. Slight hiccup at check-in but recovery was supreme. Cant speak highly enough of the driveway attendants and the concierge in the downstairs foyer.

Deluxe partial ocean view studio was perfect for the two of us. We normally book a suite but we didn't need it in this case, the room was huge. Tastefully modern, awesome bathroom and the kitchenette provides perfectly for breakfast and snacks- we would rather go out for other meals. The room was very clean and showed no signs of wear and tear.

The buffet was ok but with the kitchenette we preferred to eat in our room. The bar was terrific at night with live music and hands down the best mocktail I have ever had by the pool with basil and strawberries!

I was surprised by the pool. Big enough, always has 2 beds together and after reading reviews I thought this may not be a place for children but I noticed they supplied swim nappies and there were quite a few little ones.

Given the week we had, we will definitely return with baby!

We booked the Trump Waikiki based on reviews written here on TripAdvisor. The Trump Waikiki is a wonderful place when you are travelling with a young baby. Our 4 month old had many necessities available at the hotel if we were to forget anything. They offered diapers, baby shampoo, wash, lotion, bibs, a nice crib. And for beach going they had their beach bags with water, fruits, towel, sunblock, but they also had beach umbrellas for you and a floatie for the baby. The staff was amazing! Treated you like family and were always ready to help you and made sure you were well provisioned for your outings. We spent more time at the pool than the beach because the beach area nearest the Trump was not very swim friendly. The beach near the hotel was too rocky, making it difficult to even swim out to get past the rocks. More swim friendly areas were a short distance away but we didn't want to make the trek with our little one. The pool was nice and heated. The pool attendant, Justin, is so nice! Very helpful and welcoming. I would definitely recommend this hotel for families!!!

This hotel was the best! Yes its expensive but worth every cent! Every other hotel I have stayed in in Waikiki has been disappointing but Trump really knows how to do it well. The hotel was pure luxury, the service was impeccable and the location was great. I wouldn't stay anywhere else now that I have found this hidden gem. The only con is the amount of time it takes for you to get your room. We arrived at 3pm and had to wait till 4pm - we had flown all morning so were so tired & just wanted to shower so it was a little disappointing that we couldn't just get to our room... However in saying all that, the foyer & eateries were fantastic and it wasn't that much trouble to set and enjoy the views/atmosphere (although the bartender was loud!!!). I understand that sometimes rooms aren't ready until 'check in time' but because we were sick & had to leave at 7am the next morning it was disappointing we didn't get to spend more time in our room (overnight stopover).

We stayed at the Trump Waikiki Beach Walk in March 2014 as a get-away for my daughter's Spring Break and could not have been more impressed by this lovely hotel, the facilities, and most of all the staff. From the moment we arrived, we were made to feel at home. Of course, the hotel was luxurious, as one would expect of a Trump-managed property, but it is the service, that makes the hotel and stand out. As one of several examples, the front desk staff went so far as to have chicken soup sent up to our room, unsolicited, when they learned that my wife was feeling under the weather. As if that were not gracious enough, they checked in on her regularly to see how she was feeling! We will stay at this hotel every time we visit Honolulu.
