Trump International Hotel and Tower
Across from the Fashion Show mall and steps from the Strip, the 64-story Trump International Hotel Las Vegas towers above all nearby buildings with a golden facade reflecting the brand of the Donald J. Trump hotel collection. The vibe: Impeccable style, lifestyles of the well-to-do, service that goes above and beyond What we love: Love him or hate him, you can trust that any resort owned and operated by real estate mogul Donald Trump knows how to deliver the good life. That’s certainly the case at Trump International Hotel Las Vegas. If you want to be treated like a millionaire…or rather a billionaire…then stay here. Unlike most of Sin City’s hotels, Trump International Hotel Las Vegas doesn’t have a casino (something that goes over well with families) and it doesn’t allow smoking (which goes over well with those of us who hate inhaling other people’s cigarette smoke). The staff is awesome. Really they are. And what’s more, the concierge-like Trump Attaché team (doesn’t that name sound like it belongs to some sort of super secret intelligence agency?) can pretty much make whatever Vegas dream you have — within reason, of course — come true. The rooms at Trump International Hotel Las Vegas are incredible. Not only are they spacious (starting at 515 square feet), but the beds are unbelievably comfy and the bathrooms come with jetted spa tubs. Plus, there are kitchen appliances by Wolf, Bosch and Sub-Zero (nicer brands than you have at home). Insider tips: Trump International Hotel Las Vegas doesn’t have a self-parking garage. You have to valet park. That service is free, but a gratuity is expected. Kids and small dogs are more than welcome here. As part of the Trump Kids program, children get kiddie cocktails, coloring books and other surprises during their stays. And the Trump Pets program gives four-legged guests gourmet treats, bowls with bottled water and plush pet beds. In the resort’s gift store, you can also purchase Trump-monogrammed pet accessories including robes, blankets and slippers. The elevated pool deck features ahh-mazing views of the city and a fabulous setting for soaking up the sun. The only thing that can make it better: A drink. We recommend ordering one of the signature cocktails from the poolside café H2(EAU). If pampering yourself is on your vacation must-do checklist, The Spa at Trump has you covered. It offers everything from gemstone treatments and royal body therapies to hangover cures (like the Vegas Recovery Massage and the Morning After Eye Care). Good to know: Trump International Hotel Las Vegas is situated about a block from train tracks. If you’re someone who’s bothered by train noises (because they do occasionally roll through), you may want to request a room on a higher floor. The resort also sits back about a quarter of a mile from the Strip, so you’ll need to do some walking to get to other major properties and shopping. The restaurant choices at Trump International Hotel Las Vegas are pretty much limited to DJT (take a guess at whose initials those are). But the uneven quality of food and service here doesn’t seem to be on par with the high-end presentation of the rest of the property.
