Trump International Hotel Waikiki
Ranked #4 of 84 Hotels in Honolulu
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 20 August 2011

We travel to Hawaii about once a year from Australia, and usually stay at the Hilton Hawaiian Village or Westin Moana Surfrider. We decided to give the Trump a try after reading positive reviews. From the moment you enter the Trump to the moment you leave, you are treated like royalty. This hotel is a breath of fresh air amongst many tired, stale resorts in need of desperate renovations. The rooms are fantastic, good value for money and feature stunning contemporary furniture and decor. The one thing that truly separates the Trump from the other Waikiki hotels is the service. Julia from the ground floor is one of the kindest hotel staff members we have ever met anywhere in the world. The pool, while not everyone's cup of tea (it's quite small, with an unusual E shape design) is relaxing and quiet, which is something you don't often find in Honolulu hotels. Everything is absolutely fantastic and I wouldn't recommend any other property to stay.

Room Tip: Because the balconies are diagonal, almost every room has a fantastic view.

We stayed at this hotel for our honeymoon. It was a magnificent vacation! Beginning with our arrival at the hotel we were greeted with leis. Then we were upgraded to a corner one bedroom suite with two balconies. We had a great view of both the ocean and city. The room itself was beautiful. The kitchen is fully stocked with every appliance and tool that you can imagine, including a rice cooker! There is also a washer and dryer, which really came in handy. The first night we were even given a bottle of champagne to celebrate our honeymoon.

All of the staff was extremely friendly and eager to please. The concierge desk was very helpful with booking outings and providing bags for the beach that include towels, water, fruit, and sunscreen.

The restaurant on the lobby level was also very nice. We had lunch and drinks there and the ambiance and view was wonderful. The mai tais are highly recommended.

No, the hotel is not on the beach, but the beach is just a short walk away. It is also well situated to use public transportation. The pool is on the lobby level so you get a very nice city view. The pool has more of an urban hotel feel rather than beach feel, so it may not be as suitable for children.

The only downside to the hotel was housekeeping. They did a less than superb job cleaning. The day we arrived, we discovered broken glass fragments on the kitchen floor. Also, I noticed that dishes that they washed still had remnants of food left on them. Sand on our bathroom floor was not cleaned either. So I think that the hotel could benefit from improvements in housekeeping.
Even with this in mind, I would not hesitate to stay here again as we had such a great vacation! I highly recommend Trump International Waikiki Beach.

This property completely surpassed my expectations. Even during one of the busiest weeks in Waikiki the entire staff was friendly, professional and helpful. Every request was met with a smile and immediate action. Did not eat on the property so can't make any food comments. I will never stay anywhere else. Don't worry about not being right on the beach. As the other reviewers indicate, it really doesn't matter. Too many amenities to mention. It's just great. Thanks for everything Mr. Trump!! You have a first rate hotel and have hired a truly first rate staff.

We rented a deluxe two bedroom with ocean view, which I have to say exceeded our expectation. As usual with these sort of hotels, there is a online concierge questionnaire which enquires about needs etc and if travelling with children. We were, 2 infact (8 and 5yr). On arrival we were nicely greeted and the children were certainly made to feel special. At reception as we were signing in, ice water with melon infusion was brought out with towel to freshen up for all. The staff were always helpful and courteous. Never really felt the pressure to tip for everything... but I have to say the service was indeed very good and any gratuity they received was deserved. The rooms are exactly as portrayed in the photos and the lounge and dining area are spacious and tastefully furnished. The views were indeed ocean view especially so from the living area and master bed. Superb. There was a small balcony which we did not really use. The kitchen was well equipped. Washer/dryer of course important for children. Oh on the first day, children both received a soft toy, drawing and coloring book and also 4 stylish "shots" of juices and milkshake for their arrival in the room when we got there. Very thoughtful to our daily stay. Gourmet cookies as well. Other days of room service, chocolates etc was also left. My only complain was that they tended to have these very horribly tea infusion thing, and left very few plain black teabags. Nevertheless, room service fixed that when called. They have the usual Wii available when asked for (ie we were informed of the available entertainments for children) in a "menu" on arrival. Asked for a Wii and they came and set up the unit for you. Kept the kids happy. The rooms cannot be fault. Free high speed Wifi.

The hotel had a small pool which is not really suitable for children (4 ft deep) and that was really their only weak point. But when you have the ocean, well let's say we were mostly at the beach. The location is good, right in the centre of Waikiki, numerous convenient store nearby, close to the beach. It is literally one block back from the beach. If you walk a bit up the beach it becomes less rough and more suitable for children. They do provide a simple day beach bag... ie towels and sunscreen as well as water, which is great. At the end of your day, just hand it back! Being in the centre, you are surrounded by restaurants, take you pick. Roy's was pretty good.

All in all, a lovely place, superb apartments (they are listed on the market for about 2 to 2.5 million, if you fancy buying one) and we would definitely stay there again. It is however not for those who really must have a big pool or must have a pool for small children during their stay.
