The Trump hotel, much like it’s larger-than-life owner, knows how to make a statement, its gleaming glass and steel exterior proudly asserting itself among Chicago’s architectural landmarks. The design is at once modern and classic, its clean lines and muted palette keeping the focus on the million-dollars views outside the floor-to-ceiling windows. The luxury comes in the rich textures—buttery leathers, gleaming chrome, thick velvets—and in the unparalleled service in the form of round-the-clock staff concierges, doormen and Trump Attachés (butlers) who do everything from prestocking your room with groceries to scoring impossible restaurant reservations.
Bed and Bath
Starting at 604 square feet, the rooms feel like an executive’s pied a terre with kitted-out kitchens complete with Subzero fridges, killer tech perks (42-inch HDTVs, Bose Sound Wave systems, bedside control panels for lighting) and indulgent Italian linens. The spa-like limestone bathrooms have deepsoak tubs, rainfall showers and custom botanical products. Stay plugged into the stock market while you get ready via in-mirror TVs.
Downstairs at award-winning Sixteen restaurant, chef Thomas Lents creates seasonal dishes from local products—think poached langoustines with heirloom tomato gazpacho, and foie gras and eel with pickled plums. Local finance types seal deals over post-work cocktails at the tony Rebar. But the true gem is the Terrace at Trump, which loftily presides over the river. The 23,000 square-foot spa and health club offers Kate Somerville facials and indulgent massages. Take a dip afterwards in the 75-foot heated indoor pool.
In the Area
Ask the concierge to make you reservations at one of the city’s iconic restaurants—Rick Bayless’s Frontera Grill and Topolobampo, and Carrie Nahabedian’s Naha are all nearby. Don’t miss the laughs at the world famous Second City, where such luminaries as Dan Aykroyd, Steve Carell and Tina Fey have performed. The downtown Art Institute houses famous works including American Gothic by Grant Wood and Edward Hopper’s Nighthawks.
How to Get There
Simply the best all around. Location, restaurants, room views, very polite and helpful staff, always at your service, amenities. Located a 1 min walk from house of blues and other great entertainment.
I have stayed at many many hotels throughout the world but nothing compares to this hotel. Top shelf from top to bottom. Staff was genuinely pleasant, kind and helpful. They made me feel like they appreciated me being there. Room was stellar. I got an upgrade to a jr suite, with ceiling to floor windows and long as football field. Food was incredible. Bar on the 2nd floor was stellar and had great views of Chicago water.
This hotel was pricey was so amazing! The rooms are clean and beautiful. They had a real gingerbread house elavator for the Christmas season, and holiday music playing in the lobby. The attention to detail was so nice.
I’d the name bothers you too bad. This is hands down the place to stay. Location, People, Amenities, Food, Great Big Clean Room. From the towel warmers to heavenly bedding. The staff is helpful friendly and professional. Tons of shopping and Food within easy walking distance. Been to six or seven local hotel in the greater Chicago area and none equal the gem in the Windy City.
The hotel room was beautiful and spacious with spectacular views of the city and Chicago river through floor to ceiling windows. The fitness center and locker rooms had all the equipment you could with a beautiful view as well. The pool was also huge with beautiful views. My only criticism was a hotel of this stature, size, and beauty should have a hot tub. The entire staff was first class all the way excellent service!
