We stayed three nights at the Trump and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. There is no doubt that this hotel targets a certain clientele. Some of the issues people complain about are SO ridiculous.
The Trump is an all suites hotel, very much the same as the Signature Suites. So yes folks, like the Signature, Trump does not have a minibar. Do you honestly enjoy paying three times the amount for your beer and gin? Instead, you have a refrigerator that you are free to stock with your own food and beverage. I did find the dishes and cooking utensils a bit lacking, but I am not looking to make any big meals. It was just fine for cheese and crackers we enjoyed.
There is no casino at this hotel. Well, duh!! Trump does not advertise a casino, and given the Donald is trying to sell his gambling properties in Atlantic City, why would you assume he wanted a gambling property in Vegas. And here is a news flash for all gamblers: you may want to stay clear of Aria, Vdara, Veer, and the Mandarin Oriental, as they are all not gaming. Since about 2007, the major corporations that own the strip properties, have generated more revenues from their non-gambling activities than from gambling. Do some basic research people.
The walk from Trump to the strip is scary?! Are you freaking kidding me?! I agree it is poorly lit for a night walk, but simply assuming vehicles do not see you will keep you safe. There is lots of cars and foot traffic. We never felt frightened. In the daytime, we crossed the street and entered the mall and made the "long" three minute walk to Las Vegas Blvd in air-conditioned comfort. It is no different than walking along Harmon Ave if you are staying at the Signature Suites. Come on folks, a short walk can only help after you have come from the buffet.
Train noise. No doubt about it, you do hear trains. They just did not keep me from my sleep. Its not like there is a train every hour, maybe a couple overnight--or else I just slept through them.
The staff is among the friendliest we have encountered in Vegas. And DJT (restaurant) is an outstanding value. The prix fixe menu is a three course for $29.
People, stop complaining about having to tip the valet guy a couple of dollars for parking. Are you kidding me?! Have you ever stayed at a hotel in NYC or San Francisco and had to pay the daily parking rate? Everytime you drop the valet guy two bucks, pretend you won $30 that covered your parking.
If you spend 14 hours a day at the tables on your trips to Vegas, this is NOT the hotel for you. You should be getting your room comped! If you are looking for a beautiful hotel that offers you a quiet retreat after a day on the strip, this IS the place for you.
As long as the rates at the Trump stay reasonable, we will consider this a top choice for our vegas visits.
