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
The location is actually better than I first thought, close to most of the things you come to Chicago for, but just off the beaten path. Service is impeccable! The doorman remembers who you are, the check in staff treat you like royalty, and the facility is simply gorgeous
Our stay at the hotel was excellent. The service was top notch, from all of the hotel staff. Everyone was very friendly. The rooms and amenities were exceptional. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place to anybody.
Magnificent hotel, with a fantastic staff! Everyone we dealt with was so friendly and always willing to help. A special shout out to Morgan. Our room was AMAZING!! Great views! Loved everything about it! My grandson said the hotel room was the best part of the trip and he can’t wait to go back. Thanks for taking such good care of my family and me.
as always, the Trump Hotel carried through on all of their top qualities. Cant wait to go back I take my granddaughters to Chicago each August for back to school clothes. They always want to stay at the Trump. Great location Great restaurant. Great rooms. Great staff
We stayed here for one night to celebrate a birthday in a king size room. Aside from all politics, it is by no means a 5 star hotel. And what truly makes a difference for the 5 star is a customer service. Unfortunately, this is not the case. The rooms are spacious, the bed linens were clean and crisp, but for the price we payed i would think they would come quickly when our coffee machine did not work for us. No, not even after 2 calls, not until we aksed a housekeeping personnel outside of our room. Second thing, the spa. I was so looking forward to that spa experience with probably the most expensive facial, and yet it was just good. No special touches, no offering of advise, explaining product lines, offering samples, etc..the spa facility is great, the views, the atmosphere but it is again about people..and the customer service was somewhat disapointing, to be honest, not corresponding to the price paid. The breakfast was great at the Terrace, and the views are beautiful. The location is unbeatable. So for the 4 star it is very good hotel. But if you are hoping for a 5 star experience, you will likely be disappointed.
