Certificate of Excellence

Very warm welcome at the Trump. Only stayed one night; Oct 31st, last year. I arrived in the morning, but they managed to get a room ready for me shortly after noon. I got a nice view on an upper floor that included a view of the ocean. Hotel room has loads of space as well as the bathroom.
Nice pool area.
Because my flight out was late the following evening, they gave me a 4 p.m. checkout, at no extra charge. Very friendly staff.

Trump was AMAZING!!!!! I can totally understand why it is number one. We arrived very early and we had a lovely breakfast while we waited for our room to be ready. They were able to get our room ready much earlier than anticipated and after a long flight it was greatly appriciated.

The room (Ocean view) was wonderful. Kitchen and bathroom were fantastic and the view was amazing. They also have very comfy beds.

It is a very easy walk to the beach and to the shops. We even walked to Ala Moana (Which is a longer walk).

Can't wait to go back :)

Room Tip: Get an Ocean View Room :)

My husband and I have stayed in three different hotels in Waikiki, and this by far, was the best experience. Although the last hotel we stayed at was an oceanfront room at The Outrigger Reef with a beautiful view, and The Trump is not oceanfront (across the street from the beach), the staff, service, experience, and the million "little details" at The Trump, definitely make up for the oceanfront room. Every member of the staff from the bellhop to the conceirage to the cleaning staff are amazing - they anticipate your every need (including pamphlets for running routes, beach bags, and information on everything you could imagine). The turn down service is a real treat, too. All things considered, including that it's not oceanfront hotel and the pool area is a bit small, if you are looking for a quieter hotel but still experience Waikiki, The Trump is the way to go. I will rave about this place for years to come!

hy

i spent there 10 days from 16.3.-26.3.2012.
i already have been there last year from 21.2.-1.3.2011

last year its been great enough to come again this year. but this time we had bad luck with the rooms.
i had reserved a room with 2 queensized beds. (as i had last year)
we got an even room than reserved for the lower price (oceanview instead of partial ocean view, but exactly same kind of room), but with 1 queensized bed and a incredible ridiculous joke of a sleepcouch with a mattress so thin, that you had to lie on the grid.
for a Hotel like the Trump an unbelievable joke.
the queensized beds are ok, but nothing special.

3 days later we got another room in the 10. floor and the other side. the room before was on the 19 floor (city+ocean-sided)
the view in the new room was really great, but the noise from the road was rather loud.
and in the morning(around 5:00 am) we were waked up by the noice of riding backwards trucks.
(in Amerika they do a real loud noice when riding backwards)

yes- you can shut the door. yes - you can use the air condition.
but in the other room and the room last year, it was not necessary. there we could let open the door, enjoying the hawaiian air and didn´t risk to get sick by air condition.

so my advice to everyone:
-try to get a room as high as possible.
(the cheaper ones go up to floor 23.)
-visit hawaii, when its not to overcrowded - the possibility to get a great room is a lot higher, because its not possible to get a fix reservation. you can only get a "strong request" to your rooms/wishes.

well - the rest of the hotel is really impressive and nice and the service is nearly perfect.

Probably the nicest hotel (room plus service) I have stayed at. A bit disappointing that you are not right on the beach, on the other hand the beach isn't much to get excited about. The room was huge, impeccably appointed. The service second to none. Pool was small but wasn't an issue for us. I wouldn't return to Waikiki but if I had to, this is where I would stay.

We stayed at the Trump during the last 4 nights of our 9-day trip to Oahu in July 2011, and I wish we had booked our entire stay here. From the moment we arrived, the service was friendly and top-notch. We were greeted with a kukui nut lei and escorted to the reception desk on the 6th floor. Once check-in was complete, we were given a quick tour of the public/dining areas in the hotel and then shown to the elevator that would take us to our floor.

I had booked an ocean view studio, but they upgraded us to a huge and beautiful 1 bedroom suite with a den, living and dining room, and full kitchen with granite countertops. Our suite had two lanais with incredible panoramic views from the ocean to the mountains. We even had views of the ocean from our extremely comfortable king bed. Our suite was beautifully appointed and very quiet. We loved the marble tiled bathroom with large soaking tub, separate walk-in shower and double vanities.

Each day when the valet would bring our car around, they would always give us bottled water for the drive. When we returned to our room each evening, the lights were dimmed, the bed covers turned down, slippers and robes laid out, and tranquil, Hawaiian music was softly playing.

We had a delicious and relaxing dinner at the Wai’olu Ocean View Lounge our last night, and the service from our waiter was impeccable!

We didn’t use the pool, but I do agree with other comments that it is rather small and more like a lap pool.

The hotel is located at the quieter end of Waikiki, with first class shopping and many excellent restaurants in the area. The heart of Waikiki, as well as the beach and Fort Derussy Park are just a short walk away. If you have a car, another plus of staying here is that you don’t have to fight the horrible traffic on Kalakaua Avenue in order to get in and out of the hotel.

I do quite a bit of traveling and have planned many events at high-end boutique hotels for my company. Without a doubt, the Trump was one of the nicest experiences I’ve had in all of my travels. My partner commented that the Trump Waikiki is now his all-time favorite hotel. We are planning another trip to Honolulu in April 2012 and this time we will spend our entire stay at the Trump!

We ended our first vacation Hawaii at this hotel and, having stayed in a number of highly rated locations over a two week period, we were very pleased to enjoy the impeccable, friendly service and ambience of the Trump International on the final night of the holiday. We were upgraded to a much larger, beautifully appointed suite than we had requested and got to watch the sun go down and the Friday night fireworks from one of our two balconies! Our Saturday night flight did not depart until 8 pm and, on check-in, the staff assured us that there would be no problem nor any cost, to provide us with a hospitality suite. We packed up early, our suitcases were transferred to the suite which really gave us an extra day's vacation because we had a place to store our luggage, change/freshen up for the flight home and enjoy the sights of Waikiki for the entire day.
