Understated it is not. But the guests who choose the Trump International — high-flying business travelers, families, couples on romantic escapes — are not looking for subtlety when they book a night in one of the 167 rooms and suites here. A $30 million 2010 renovation softened some of the glitzy edge via a more modern and muted palette, but the property retains its Donald bravado with marble, crystal and gold.
Bed and Bath
Ivanka Trump may have chosen the silver-edged mirrors, silk wallpaper and sophisticated ivory, charcoal and eggplant color scheme, but it was Mr. Trump himself who insisted on the 55-inch flat-screen HDTVs, Blu-ray players, Sound Bar stereos and charging stations compatible with multiple devices. All rooms except the standard rooms have full kitchens with china, crystal glassware, a Subzero fridge and a Keurig coffeemaker. The bathrooms swagger with marble and Jacuzzi tubs, but the real star of the show remains the million-dollar views from the rooms’ floor-to-ceiling windows.
The three-Michelin-starred Jean-Georges is one of the city’s top dining rooms; it serves haute nouveau French cuisine, including caramelized foie gras with green apple cracklings and soy yuzu froth. The exhibition kitchen in the more casual Nougatine serves light, fresh fare, but be forewarned that entrees still aren’t cheap. Neither are the fantastic treatments in the 6,000-square-foot spa and pool area. The four-and-a-half-hour Platinum Experience runs $585, and facials have names like “Trump High Performance.” Would you expect anything less?
How to Get There
The room and bathroom are dated and are in need of major renovation. All bathroom fixtures are old and a lot of caulking around the bathroom tub. The size of the junior suite was very small, and is good for 2 people only. There were 3 of us and it was very difficult to move around the room.
Staff were extremely courteous and always amazing. Great location. Gym was superb.Will always stay there when in New York.Walking distance to great shopping restaurants and the Broadway. Breakfast was fabulous.
Stayed at Trump Chicago and loved the larger rooms with kitchens plus the staff was as good as the Four Seasons. Then stayed at the old Trump Soho and was very disappointed. Did not have high expectations with upcoming stay at Trump Intl at Columbus Circle, but boy were we surprised. Staff was amazing, service was immediate and the food/room service was outstanding (thank you, Jean-George). Great location, hotel very safe, very clean and felt like home. Will definitely be back.
Hotel staff was amazing. Quick and attentive. Welcomed us with smiles and friendly greetings every time we walked into the lobby. Every staff member we came in contact with was warm, friendly and outgoing - a sign of great management. Even the guests seemed nicer than normal. They must have been enjoying the experience like we are.
Love the location and views. Central Park directly across the street.
We relied on room service to help when our kids got tired and didn’t have the energy to go to a restaurant. Expensive, but Great room service food. Also really appreciated the kitchenette for snacks and quick breakfasts. Kitchenette definitely needed a few more basic cooking items. Only came with one small pan and pot. No cooking tools at all. Next time we will call down and ask for them at the start of our stay.
This is now our favorite hotel in NYC. Already planning our next trip.
I was looking forward to our stay at this hotel to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary but nothing could have prepared me for the experience- absolutely amazing
We stayed in Central Park view suite - absolute luxury and great views !
Every detail was perfect.
I cant wait to stay again !
