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
This hotel is a landmark in NYC and you can see why when you enter. The hotel feels a bit old and dated but the service is impeccable. I loved my breakfast every morning, even though the staff was not really friendly. I got a huge upgrade for which I was very thankful. With a great view over Rockefeller Center I was a happy guest. Great location also.
West side hotel that has a staff that is eager to help. Check in can be difficult if you arrive before 3:00 PM. Quiet hotel. Service is off the charts good. The gym is quite nice. Simple but has all the equipment. Room service food was very good.
Excellent friendly service from start to finish. Clean and comfortable room with everything you need.
Book a room overlooking central park. You will be amazed at the view at night and at sunrise. Plan your trips out, book in advance and go for express "by pass the lines " tickets, Empire State and Rockafella it will save you hours of queing. You will not find a better hotel in New York.
