Trump International Hotel Waikiki is an ocean-view luxury property located a nine-minute walk from world famous Waikiki Beach. The 350 apartment-style units have bright, earth-toned interiors, high-end kitchens (or kitchenettes), and private balconies (some with ocean views). There are some major downsides. Namely, the outdoor pool is stylish but small, restaurants are expensive, and many of the ocean views are obstructed. Three restaurants get mostly positive reviews and serve seafood, international cuisine, and steaks. Hotel amenities include a 24-hour gym, small spa, valet parking for a fee, and free Wi-Fi that's painfully slow. Families should note that strollers are free to borrow and free beach bags come with fruit, towels, and water. For a sleek oceanfront stay with multiple pools and free kayaks to use, the Four Seasons Resort Oahu at Ko Olina is an excellent luxury alternative -- but rates are higher.
Great hotel, clean rooms, check in, valet staff amazing.
We recently completed a four night stay at the Trump. From the minute we checked in (Jason was excellent) til the time we left we were very pleased with our stay. I hired a car which I probably didn’t need to because Waikiki is walkabout but we did drive to North Shore and hiked Diamond head one day. The first morning my rental had a flat tire which the valet staff went and got filled but was very helpful with trying to help sort problem, the concierge ( forgot his name but he was awesome) even called to try to switch our car out in Waikiki which we couldn’t but they were amazing. Breakfast Buffet was very good and staff very friendly. Rooms were clean and housekeeping staff friendly and extremely attentive. We got upgraded to a studio with kitchenette which was perfect. Very spacious rooms with partial views of ocean and diamond head. Only two negatives are the pools rather small and it’s not on the beach. Generally though if your looking for a hotel that’s modern, clean with helpful staff and not over crowded Trump is perfect.
