Nice property, beautiful grounds and pools. Very convenient to the airport

Service is not great, though. Parking is confusing and not guest-friendly. We had a suite that was supposed to sleep 2 adults and 4 kids, but was small and we needed to call for a rollaway bed.

In spite of it being an older property it was well kept. the landscaping was meticulous. We also got a fantastic rate using Priceline name you own price. Trump will make it better. Would definitely stay again.

Came along with my husband when he had a conference here - like others have mentioned, the grounds are nice but the lodges and rooms really need updating. Compared to other "Trump" properties this one will require significant upgrades to be considered excellent.
Our room was fine aside from the outdated carpet with some snags/rips, uncomfortable beds (getting a better look at the matress, it was old, ripped in places), and outdated shower. There is wifi so that's a plus.
Service was moderate - we did ask for a microwave which was delivered promptly however assistance from the concierge was like pulling teeth - he was very unwilling to assist and spoke as though he were scolding me instead of giving suggestions or guidance.
They highlight of the trip was taking the shuttle (not really a shuttle but a chauffeured Escalade) courtesy of the hotel to the Trump International property for beach access-great amenity.
Also used the driving range which is included in the resort fee - great staff and very helpful.
So overall not terrible but not what one would expect from a Trump property.
Would not return unless the property has major renovations done.

Trump paid alot of money for the aging property. I'm told some rooms are renovated; I would have been grateful for a room where you could actually control the AC. Other people in my group had the same issue. Service at this hotel is very hit/miss. If your trying to reach the front desk during the night, good luck. I had one decent lunch and one terrible lunch at Champions. The breakfast buffet is terribly over-priced. Last item, the spa charges like the Greenbrier but the services are comparable to what you would expect from a place with an inexperienced staff.

Room Tip: Ask for a renovated room and make sure AC / thermostat work properly before you un-pack.

I spent three days at the Doral and it needs a major upgrade which I know is in the works. The rooms are about as bad as my Hoboken apartment was back in the late 80's. The pool chairs are old and the entire property looks tired. Employees were nice and helpful. No Tennis on site and the gym was below average for a property that size. I will return once Mr. Trump invests and upgrades the property.

The Doral is an amazing property but clearly falls short of the Trump quality. I stayed in the Trump Soho and in Chicago. Both are amazing hotels with super rooms. The rooms in the Doral are really the opposite. They need desperately a serious overhull. Also the whole place lacks freshness and the little something special. The swimmingpool area is a desaster... They have so much greens and here everything is concrete.

I stayed at the Doral Golf Resort and Spa while attending a recent conference. The hotel's physical plant may have been good in the past but it is showing its age and is in immediate need of renovation. There are signs on the property that ownership has passed to Donald Trump's organization but no indications of improvements. My room was a bit threadbare. Most annoying was the noise level of the air conditioning unit that forced me to turn it off at night in order to sleep. I would not return until these problems with the facilities are upgraded.
