Some people call the Trump Waikiki home, which explains why the bellmen at this condo hotel greet people by name, and why service and security are top-notch (for hotel guests, a personal attaché is at your service for your entire stay). The prime location, across the street from the beach and just off Waikiki's crowded main strip, adds to one's impression of being a wealthy local here, rather than a tourist. The masculine decor and super-size flat-screen TVs do feel a tad corporate, but on the plus side, even the smallest of the 462 units (a studio) is 600 square feet, and all have closets the size of a New York City apartment, as well as washer/dryers and full kitchens. (If you're not into cooking, room service is available from the BLT restaurant downstairs, and there are private chefs for hire.) Rooms on the upper floors of the 38-story hotel literally tower over Honolulu: The views from the floor-to-ceiling windows are incredible, and even better from your balcony. A modest infinity-edge pool on the sixth floor has ocean views, but nothing beats sunset drinks at the lobby-level Waiolu Lounge. On Friday nights, its balcony is the best spot for viewing the fireworks put on by the nearby Hilton Hawaiian Village.—Cathay Che
