“Great Mini Vacation”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

I stayed at the Trump Taj Mahal for just one night but in that short amount of time we were very impressed with the quality of the rooms and the amenities provided in the lobby were extremely convenient. We did have a rather slow gentlemen checking us in, which delayed the process a bit but we we're able to find a nice bar in the lobby around the corner that quickly made up for it. Our view from the window in our room was fantastic, as it looked out onto the pool and the beach that was close enough to touch! The four of us had dinner down in the food court and were very impressed with the variety! Shortly we returned to the room and noticed that we were never given utensils and called down for assistance. WIthin 5 minutes, a kind lady was knocking at our door with plastic utensils. The quality and the service was amazing and the prices were even better, I would definitely recommend!

I didn't stay after they wrecked my rental car with $7,000 in damage. The valet was "pulling it in a space". They suspended them for 3 days. Really? They were joy riding in my convertible.
Why not fired?

Room Tip: Book somewhere else.

We always stay at the Taj Mahal and we have have never had anything to complain about. The front desk staff is very friendly, and the rooms are very clean. The bathrooms are very large and the security is good. You cannot get to the elevators for the hotel rooms without showing your room key. The rooms in the Chairman Tower are more modern, but both towers are fine. It is convenient to the boardwalk & beach. We have eaten numerous times at the Plate, and find the food & service good. The casino is quite large, but easy to get around.

Room Tip: Try to get a view of the ocean !

Two reasons why I choose this hotel for my 3 nights stay a) Got good deal b) this hotel has two Indian cuisine restaurants.
Else, I would suggest Tropicana or Ceaser palace if you want to stay on Boardwalk.

Just spent 3 day at the large casino hotel property in Atlantic City and came away a little
disappointed. Although allegedly designated 5 stars we've seen better 4 star properties.
The casino was very large but a little disjointed. To get to the Chairman's tower where
we stayed you had a go up escaltors and take one set of elevators up one floor and then
walk over some 100 yards to get to another bank of elevators to get to our room Ditto
for getting to the indoor pool. Not very good if you have any elderly in your party.
The desk clerk who checked us in was not very friendly -- once again not what you would
expect from a 5 star hotel. The Player's magazine rated the slots payouts for the Taj the
lowest in Atlantic City (Revel the highest) and we can vouch for that. All in all, the 4 people
in my party all came away pretty much disappointed.

Room Tip: Get the casino tower -- a lot more conviently located.

We were here from last monday and stayed for two nights. We would have stayed three if they weren't completely sold out wednesday night. Check in was great, Melissa at the front desk couldn't have been more friendly and accommodating. We were supposed to stay sunday night but weren't able to make it down there so she was so nice to take off the charge for that night. We stayed in room 3625 which we were able to see the ocean from. Unfortunately the next morning, the maid woke us up at 9:00AM to clean we told her to come back. We put the service please sign on the door and were gone for the rest of the day. We came back in the evening and the room hadn't been cleaned! We called housekeeping to inform them of this and that we would need fresh towels. NO APOLOGY! We were livid and when we checked out we asked for compensation and the desk clerk just gave us a number for the housekeeping supervisor and take it up with them,,didn't get anything. However keep in mind, this does not mean we would never come back. We ate dinner at plate one night and breakfast there twice. We love that place and always had excellent and attentive wait staff. Their crusted tilapia is one of the best meals I have ever had along with their chocolate cake. I also like the architecture of the hotel. One thing they did to improve security is have an officer stationed outside the guest elevator bank checking to make sure everyone possessed a room key which is good. Although we left with mixed feelings we would give them a chance again since this was our third time and overall we enjoyed our stay.

First time I stayed at this hotel. We were on the 45th floor. The hotel was clean and in a good location. Great view. The only problem was checking in. There were 100 people in front of us. The staff was friendly, the room was clean. I would definitely stay there again. It was close to Margaritaville. We walked down to the 3D light show in the evening.

Room Tip: We were in the Chairman Tower with an excellent view
