Though the Trump name might be best known for showy excess, this non-gaming luxury hotel just off the Strip is a surprising break from the chaos of the casinos. Sure, the exterior is wrapped in gold, the floors are marble, and the columns drip in crystals, but the understated palette, refined service, and lack of casino din add up to a serene and sophisticated stay. The condo-style rooms feel more urban penthouse than Vegas party pad, with marble entrances, upholstered leather headboards, and European-style kitchens kitted out by Wolf, Bosch, and Subzero while floor-to-ceiling windows offer sweeping views of the city and the surrounding mountains. Bathrooms come with an oversize spa tub, a large shower, twin sinks, huge bath sheets, extensive products to keep you ready for the desert sun, and an in-mirror TV to watch as you apply them. These are undeniably some of the best standard hotel rooms in Vegas. In lieu of rattling slot machines and the smell of stale smoke, the Trump offers an 11,000-square-foot spa, a full fitness center, and a seasonal pool deck with wading areas, plentiful woven chaises, daybeds and luxury cabanas (for a fee). In keeping with the getaway vibe, there’s no out-of-control bar scene or animatronic mega-restaurant. Instead, there’s a small poolside café and the romantic DJT restaurant, which serves classic American cuisine like New York strip steaks and lamb chops with sweet potatoes.
In the Area
Though the Trump is just off the Strip, there’s a frequent courtesy shuttle to/from the Forum Shops at Caesars Palace, and the Wynn Resort. Head to the latter for a round of golf or to get in on the daytime pool party at the resort’s Encore Beach Club. If you’re more of a sports bar person, watch Emeril Lagasse take it to the next level at Lagasse’s Stadium, which has 100 HDTVs, leather sofas stepped bleacher-style and haute bar fare. Or rediscover the charms of old-school Vegas with a visit to the Neon Boneyard, the final resting place of the city’s brightest lights. The Daniel Libeskind–designed Crystals, in CityCenter, is the place to go for some Donald-approved spending thanks to Chihuly glass sculptures and carpets made from flowers, not to mention designer baubles by the likes of Balenciaga, Gucci and Lanvin.
How to Get There
If you can't stand the smoke, noise and gambling of hotels on the strip than the Trump International will fit your bill! The location is terrific, it is right across the street (a 100 feet walk) to the Fashion Show mall with restaurants if you do not want to eat in the two at the hotel. A short walk to the Wynn and Venetian if you need a gambling fix or want to inhale cigarette smoke. The Trump has a spacious lobby with the restaurant and lounge in the open area. The food is excellent at both the Lounge and Pool area so consider both when you can't decide where to eat. The fitness room will allow you to get in a great work out, and the adjacent pool is a great way to cool off during the summer hot weather. The pool staff is incredible staff brought ice water and smoothy samples around during the afternoon stay with a friendly smile. I really felt my belongings were safe at my chair while I took a dip. In room safe and great views added to the spacious room in the guest room. The best part of the hotel is that it is a non-smoking and non-gaming hotel so you eliminate tourists wandering in with their oversized drinks and tank tops. There is free valet parking with in and out privileges and bottled water on the counter while you wait briefly for your car to be delivered.
absolutely loved this hotel and the room was amazing. Great value for what you get. Staff was very friendly. Will defintely stay here again. Great location next to shopping mall and courtesy shuttle to casinos.
Trump was a great pick for our “parent” vacation. The room was perfect, sink, stove top, refrigerator, safe and then along with all the normal basics. In a four night stay we only had one problem. The shower water had two temps, hot or cold. The shutter service to Wynn and Caesars Palace was SO convenient.
