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!
