Trump Tower Waikiki is a condo hotel
where each residence is individually owned and short-term vacation renting is allowed, just like a hotel.
If a unit is in the hotel rental program the owner has to pay a fixed, rather significant, hospitality charge, every month, also when the owner may be occupying the unit. The only way to 'get around' the hospitality charge, is by opting not to be in the hotel rental program (a good number of owners are not in the hotel rental program and only use as their second home while a smaller percentage also occupy as their primary residence).
Self-managing short-term rentals is not allowed and there are very few rental agencies approval to manage rentals in Trump Tower Waikiki and in the past it appears they have not been able to outperform the hotel operator - hence the vast majority of owners use the hotel rental program.

The ground floor and 6th floor open air lobby, overlooking Fort Derussy Park
, both have a very warm and inviting feel. The location itself is really superb, with Waikiki Beach
and Halekulani Hotel
just across the street and endless shops around the corner. Where Ritz-Carlton Waikiki
may be newer and have the better amenities, Trump Tower wins the race when it comes to location. The Residences
Uneven numbered units face west and most have great ocean views with Fort DeRussy Park in the front. Even numbered units face east, towards Diamond Head, and depending on the stack and floor level, you get varying degree of city, ocean and Diamond Head views.
