“I gained more respect for Donald Trump”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012

I am only 22 years old, an entrepreneur and stayed 4 nights at the trump King Suite to meet some business associated in the area. The helpful staff, outstanding food, impeccable view, and elaborate rooms don't even scratch the surface of this hotel. I was very pleased and felt it was worth every penny. When you pull up to the hotel and see a Bentley, and two Maserati's you know this place is where the best say. They really try to make you feel like a king, and make sure that you come back again (it will probably work on me). I felt like I was the youngest one there, but the staff still showed me the up most respect and I felt very catered to whatever need I had. I respect the effort Trump put into this hotel, everything was best of the best. Great job Trump Chicago Staff, keep up the great work.

Decided to do a staycation for Thanksgiving rather than go out of town. Checked in on the Wednesday night before turkey day. From a professional greeting by the doorman and bell staff, the visit was off to a good start. The front desk was professional, informative, and congenial for check in. A double upgrade is always a good thing!! The room was impeccable..clean and impeccable. Nothing out of place. A great view, a fireplace, luxurious bathrooms...and a well stocked and actually reasonable beverage selection in the room. The stay was without flaw and the staff from maid, room service, and everyone included made you feel at home. So next time you want to spend some money on luxury, and more importantly, want to know you are getting your value, pick the Trump Tower in Chicago.

Room Tip: I would suggest an upgrade to whatever room you have picked -- you won't be sorry.

This hotel is gorgeous, rooms are decorated with very good taste, pillows and beds are amazing, however the best part of Trump Chicago is their staff.
All of them are super helpful, they are always trying to make your stay more enjoyable.

The brunch buffet at 16 is not to be missed.

I was a little surprised how small the lobby was when I checked in....nothing bad just a little unusual. From there the rooms and survice were First Class. I had a room that had a great view of the city and was well appointed all the way down to the coffee maker. The staff had speculator customer service ever to the point of being over the top but who does not like to be spoiled rotten even now and then. Great location about a block and a half from Michigan Ave. Highly suggest this place if you want to be pampered.

We went for a couple's stay and were both pleasantly surprised with how great this property is. We stayed for about 4 nights and right away were pleased with the decor, they were just setting up Christmas decorations and the front of the hotel was just beautifully done, especially at night when the parking structure turns on red and green lights. The staff were all very well trained, with great customer service. The room was large, we stayed in a suite and the living area is very spacious and equipped with a small kitchen (I guess it's a condo hotel) and the bathroom was huge. The housekeeping was first rate, these kind of rooms are hard to clean but they hit every mark. We even had a fabulous view of the river and when there was some kind of light parade at night we had the best view. The only thing you might want to consider is the location. It is a great location but farther away than the Pennisula e.g. from the shopping. Beautiful decor too, understated and modern.

Room Tip: A suite with a rive view is an excellent value.

I was totally blown away with the ambiance of this hotel. From the time we walked in until the time we went up to our room, we experienced nothing but first class service. We were only in town for the weekend on business, but we could have easily stayed in just to enjoy the room.

We were excited to discover the Trump Hotel offers a "house car" that provides car service for their guests. The car is used for a one-way trip to any place within a 1 mile radius of the hotel. When concierge informed us that the car was ready to pick us up, we walked outside only to see a black Audi 8L sedan rolling up to take us to our destination. My mouth dropped when the guy got out the car to open the door so that I could get in. Talk about first class!

Needless to say we enjoyed our stay at the Trump International Hotel.

The only flaw about this hotel is that it's in the city so at any given time you can hear police or ambulance sirens ringing or car horns blowing. If you don't care for the noise, you may opt for a room without a view--if one exists. But I have to tell you, the view is the best part.

Room Tip: If you don't care for the noise, you may opt for a room without a view.

We recently stayed at Trump Tower for the weekend on our ten year wedding anniversary, we have been to Chicago many times we usually stay at the Marriott which is nice also but decided to stay somewhere we hadn't been to and I'm am so glad we stayed here the location could not be any better it is kiddie corner to Nordstrom and all of the rest of the shopping in Michigan ave, the room was amazing floor to ceiling windows with a great view of the city. They brought us chocolate covered strawberries which was nice, there is a Resteraunt called sixteen which was amazing the breakfast was really really good! My husband had lobster on French toast it was amazing. The staff greeted you every time they saw you, overall amazing service all around. the valet is $50 but totally worth it. We will definitely be going back to Trump Tower
