“View amazing but details lacking”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2013 via mobile

The location & view are the best but our spacious room had a tiny bathroom & closet - no counter space around sinks at all & most of our toiletries went on the floor; not enough closet space; shower in same tub area required that you had to turn it on & get wet before it heated up. Ordered drinks in Rebar with friends & waited so long we had to leave for dinner & were never served; left room for six hours one day & room still not made up. So- we had a great time and this is a beautiful & expensive hotel but design details were shockingly deficient.

Stayed June 2013, traveled as a couple

Stayed here on business. Overall very impressed. The hotel is in a new skyscraper - 6th tallest in the world apparently. Unsurprisingly the views are amazing. The room was a good size, modern and of good quality (N.B. although slightly worn in a few areas, if I was to be really picky). Service helpful. Great location too. The outside bar on the 16th floor is not to be missed.

Sometimes you just have to dig deep for a special occasion. And for a 65th birthday, what’s a few hundred per night more, when the hotel property will help make your weekend truly memorable. On our first stay at a Trump Hotel, we were not disappointed. From check-in, to the floor to ceiling windows of our beautiful room, to a suite that seemed to anticipate your every need, our stay at this terrific property, in an excellent location, with a highly trained staff, was truly memorable. From the spotless room, to the pillows and bed, to the marble bath, this is a hotel for others hotels to use as a measure, albeit high and expensive.

My wife and I stayed here after a meeting in Chicago to celebrate our anniversary. We normally stay at a Ritz, but decided to give the Trump a try. We were not disappointed--the location and facility are amazing, but it was the first rate service and attention to detail that won us over. We were kindly offered an upgraded room and sent champagne with chocolate strawberries. The view from The Terrace for Summer fireworks was wonderful. They even had a gift to take home to our kids. My Trump Card requests were met in exactly as requested. I don't have a single complaint. We will be back!

Room Tip: Go for the river view--a room in the middle or toward the end of the hall will look straight down th...

One of the things that differentiates Trump from the other super high end competition is the attention to detail. Simply stated, nothing is taken for granted. From the beautiful lobby, to the upscale bar and delicious sushi served, to the top notch fitness center - and of course the room and beds. It's the small touches: kettle corn movie style popcorn in your room - that type of thing. Or the cucumber laced water in the gym, or the concierge anticipating all your needs. We had a horrific flight experience due to weather issues and once we stepped into the hotel, there was virtually zero stress. I would expect nothing less from Trump - and I'm extremely critical. This hotel met every expectation - bar none.

I cannot give this hotel a higher recommendation. I booked a river-view suite for my younger sister's bachelorette weekend in August 2012, and although pricey, it was worth every penny. This hotel provides exceptional service down to the last detail, from the valet parkers outside to the house-keeping staff to the front desk. They go above and beyond to make guests feel pampered. The suite was very spacious and had the gorgeous views I expected (with floor to ceiling windows), the bathroom amenities were the best I have ever had, and the mini kitchen (with regular-sized fridge) was perfect for our event. I have stayed in many hotels in downtown Chicago but the Trump is the best I've experienced. I will most definitely stay here again when the opportunity arises.
