Home > Review of Trump International Hotel in Las Vegas
With Trump hotels in major cities all across the world, it makes sense that a tourist destination like Las Vegas would be home one of those signature golden towers.
However, Trump International feels out of place in a location close to the Las Vegas Strip. Surrounded by Treasure Island, Venetian and Palazzo, one would expect that the Trump towers would offer similar amenities.
The hotel does offer some amenities, but they are sparse. What they do offer pales in comparison to what its neighbors do, except in one area. Instead of traditional comforts like slot machines and dollar cocktails, the Trump towers offer their guests luxury and tradition. This is apparent when you step through the front doors and find yourself surrounded by gold. With no slot machines in sight, Trump International is reminiscent of its sister properties across the country.
Trump non-casino hotel is a three star hotel rooted off the Vegas strip. With around one thousand available hotel rooms it's tiny for Las Vegas. An average hotel all round if we're honest - and of course, there is no casino here. You may just like it - but maybe not.
It is important to note that the Trump towers do not only host hotel guests, but a number of units are rented out as timeshares by Hilton Grand Vacations. This is perhaps another reason why gaming is noticeably absent from the property. The décor is sleek and simple, keeping close to the aesthetic of its sister properties in other cities. The room prices are standard for the this area of Vegas, averaging around 100 dollars per night, unless you decide to upgrade to one of the penthouse suites. The suites can average over two thousand dollars a night, and can come with up to three bedrooms.
The first portion of Trump International Las Vegas officially opened in 2008. A second tower has long been in the works but has been in limbo since roughly 2005. The existing tower has 1,282 operating units, a portion of which are used as rentals and living spaces. One huge plus about Trump International is that it is 'next door' (in Vegas language) to the Fashion Show Mall. For everything the hotel lacks, the Fashion Show will provide. The property is within walking distance(ish) of a number of other hotels, which is another plus.
Trump International is seen as one of the more family friendly Las vegas hotels.
The property itself is very sleek and beautiful, but it's simply not as convenient as some of the other properties close by, on the strip. It offers little in the way of entertainment and, with only two places to eat on site, it also lacks food options.
It looks like a hotel you might come across in any other major city, but when you're in Las Vegas, it feels very out of place.© 2016 ReviewsOfVegasHotels.com > Independent Las Vegas hotel reviews including bedrooms, food and drink, poker rooms and lots of gin!
