The Trump name connotes quality and an elevated experience designed to impress. In this regard, the Waikiki property aligned with the brand. Each employee, from the front desk to the room cleaners presented a professional, warm manner, much like the gracious hosts they were. We remained on the property for seven nights, allowing for a long-term perspective of the workings of the property. Located on busy Waikiki beach, it was an easy walk to great restaurants, shopping, public transportation and the beach itself.
The hotel had several unique features. When guests used the beach, upon entering the beach area, a Trump employee provided a free of charge bag with sunblock, towel, and a bottle of water. This same bag was given each time we left the property for a day trip. The hotel also provides for twice daily room cleaning which given the active lifestyle most guests engage in, was a valued offering. Following the second cleaning, the water bottles were replaced, all linens changed and toiletries added. Finally, each room had some type of kitchen or kitchenette. We were therefore able to stock the refrigerator with groceries and do some cooking with a two burner stove and microwave. The larger suites allow for in room washer and dryer- a gift to travelling families.
Our initial room did not have an ocean view. After contacting the front desk for an available alternative, one was quickly offered that provided the desired view, a larger room and lanai for approximately $100 more per day, a discount off of the $175 standard charge.
The only concern with the property relates to the height of the ceilings- lower than standard on each hallway and room. It did not detract from the quality of the room itself, but presented a somewhat claustrophobic feel in the hallways that were not as well air conditioned as the rooms and therefore contributed to the tight feeling.
While we traveled with multiple people including a family with children, all of whom enjoyed the property, the hotel is more adult friendly than child friendly. For example, the pool was fairly small for the size of the hotel and had a limited number of chaises and chairs surrounding it. The better options would be to use the beach or visit any one of a number of memorable Honolulu sites.
