A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to visit the Trump Waikiki and for the most part the property lives up to its luxurious name. This is the first ultra-modern luxury property built on Oahu in many years. It reaches 38 stories in the air, has 462 beautifully appointed guest rooms and is just a block from Waikiki Beach. The property has all of the amenities you would expect from a Trump including their Attache concierge service which gives guests inpidual attention; providing everything from personal shoppers to specialized activity itineraries. The hotel has some fine dining restaurants and room service 24/7.
The guest rooms are all exquisitely furnished and modern with lots of wood tones & Hawaiian influences. Most of suites that are available at this point are the studios which are nice size, have a large bed, huge marble bathroom with his and her sinks & a soaking tub, as well as a full galley type kitchen. There also two and three-bedroom suites and a spectacular three-bedroom multilevel suite which overlooks the ocean, higher floors.
While there’s no question that this is a property that most anybody will be happy with, there are a few things worth mentioning that you need to be aware of if you’re staying here. First off it’s not really on the beach, but if you do get a oceanview they did a good job architecturally of making sure that you actually see the ocean. Since the property is situated across from Fort Derussy Park, partial and city views are still magnificent. There is a nice infinity pool on the property however, it is quite small and there’s really not much of the views since the pool deck is on the eighth floor which overlooks other buildings.
Currently we’re seeing some good pricing for this property starting at about 285 per night so you may want to check it out if you’re looking for this kind of luxury and want to take your Hawaii vacation to the next level.
