Let’s get this out of the way up front—the Trump has possibly the most comfortable beds I’ve ever slept in. Add to that a remote to control the curtains and the lights, a smart mirror in the bathroom, and a minibar to rival a gourmet snack shop, and this hotel is top-shelf in the lap of luxury living.
Trump’s philosophy is to transform a luxury hotel into a luxury home. The company wants you to be able to entertain guests like it’s your very own building and not just a short-term stay. To that end, residence are also available for purchase within the building—but both the hotel and the condos have separate elevator banks and lobbies.
A black and white color scheme is echoed throughout every space in the hotel. The staff refers to it as “champagne and caviar,” with the purpose of leaving out a lot of color so the guests will come in and change the feel of the space based on the shades they wear.
Everything was immaculate and luxurious, from the marble floors to the black crystal chandeliers, to the cherry blossom motif sprinkled throughout the hotel. Guests are welcome to use the full spa and fitness center as well as an infinity lap pool. The restaurant had just closed for renovations when I arrived for my stay, so I didn’t get to eat there—but based on the extraordinary flavor of the dreamsicle truffle left at my bedside for my arrival, I can only imagine that the food is divine.
