“Trump Taj That's all”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

Spent a work week end at the Taj, not overly impressed. I was surprised that the property seemed as old as it did. The check in staff just did their job and nothing more. I asked the concierge for dining recommendations and all he could do was hand me the local what's happening paper. The room was clean and the view was good, saw the ocean and the boardwalk with little obstruction. The A/C worked great and over all the room was quite, great for sleeping. Not much of a gambler but I had to try my luck. I made $20 last a long time, enough to call it entertainment. The Taj opens up right on the boardwalk, plenty to see and do there. If I ever went back I may try another place such as Bally's

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

Stayed in two separate suites on my visit. First was the Grand Suite and second was a suite in the Chairman tower. Chairman tower rooms have been renovated and are in better shape. Both rooms had stains on the furnitures and carpets. Having stayed in hotels in Asia and the ME this didnt bother me. The hot tub kept coming on and off at night.

Taj has added a new club on Thurs-Sat with Pussycat dolls type show to compete with the newer casinos. Patrons were still middle aged or older. Prices were very good for the room and room service. Very fast line to check in. Hotel connects to Showboat. So you have access to House of Blues and Hard rock. New sub shop on the second floor had great NYC subs sandwich. Starbucks onsite as well. 10 minute walk to Caesars Forum shops to see new water/light show. Recommend this hotel is your over 40.

Room Tip: Try to book Chairman tower for newer room

The staff was efficient. The check in check out process was fast. The rooms were clean and spacious. Lots of dining choices. We had two major problems. The lobby had a strong cigarette odor. The lobby and casino are open areas. There is no escaping the smoke once you walk in. The casino has no smoking sections but no separate room so it's impossible to find a comfortable spot. When we got to our room and tried to check our emails. We couldn't log on. We called guest service to get the password. They wanted $12.95 for 24 hours. I don't know what the individual room rate is because we were part of a package, but charging for this in a high end hotel is just nickel and dimeing. I am checking of terrible for cleanliness--not because of the room but because of the air quality.Will definitely not go back to Trump Taj Mahal.

After reading several reviews we thought we would try the Taj Mahal on our recent visit to Atlantic City. We have traveled for years and know first hand that reviews can be misleading. Unfortunately the bad reviews for the Taj Mahal are correct. The two suites we booked were apparently ones left over that have not been cleaned or updated in years. We had two Grand Suites on the 30th floor. Yes, the rooms were big.. the carpet upon entering the room was moldy and mildewed, the lovely sitting area had stained furniture, the balcony was locked but we did have a view of the trash and cigar butts on it, the bathroom had paint and wallpaper peeling, there was mold growing on the baseboards, carpet and ceiling, the light fixture over the bed was broken and hanging by a bare wire... needless to say shoes were kept on at all times. We provided pictures to management but have never to this date received any response.

The casino area was ok, though the first night we arrived there was no apparent place to get a customer card for the machines since it was after 9 p.m. If you want service for drinks, you will have to go to the bar or sit at one of the card tables. We left for most of our gambling and went to other casinos on the boardwalk or over to the Golden Nugget.

When we entered the lobby I was a little hesitant because the outside and the lobby appeared dated to me. The check in process was long but the person checking us in was very friendly. The rate was excellent so I didn't expect the rooms to be very nice. Our room was in the chairmans tower and as soon as we began walking into that section of the hotel, the difference was remarkable. The decor was very modern and stylish. The room was huge and seemed newly decorated with modern flair. The bathroom was big and gorgeous with a separate room for the toilet. There was a vanity with a stool which was great for putting on make up. The shower was roomy. Staff friendly. I would stay in this section of the hotel again. The casino was nice. It would be nice if the restaurants in this hotel were open late night on the weekdays. The Noodle Bar was only restaurant open in the hotel and choices are limited. I'm not a fan of that restaurant but that's a different subject. Loved the hotel room though.

Room Tip: Request the chairmans tower rooms
