The Trump International Hotel Las Vegas is located in a golden 64-story glass tower. It offers exactly what one would expect on a Trump property. The interiors run a fine line between opulent and garish. The hotel includes marble floors, gleaming crystal chandeliers, large curtains and golden details. And the Trump brand is everywhere, essentially turning it into a design element. From the T-engraving on the bottom of the pool, to the toiletries of the Trump brand bathroom, to the gift shop that sells various items as a late occurrence for Trump hats, shirts, chocolate bars and even jars.

Trump International Hotel Las Vegas
Perhaps also not surprising, the hotel seems to take every opportunity to squeeze additional dollars from their guests. Unlike most hotels in the area, there are no public seats in the lobby, forcing guests to visit the restaurant next door or the pool restaurant for a chance to relax. Upgrade options for more expensive rooms or faster Internet are also pressing on arriving guests, as we observed during our 2017 visit.
It is worth noting that since the hotel is just steps away from The Strip, it is losing that exciting energy common in the most central properties. Another drawback are the busy train tracks across the street. It is likely that light sleepers will wake up to the noise of trains and their horns several times at night. The hotel attracts a large number of guests, from business travelers to families and couples from around the world.
Location of the Hotel
Trump International is ostensibly a six-minute walk from The Strip, across the street from the Fashion Show Mall and from an adult bookstore that advertises the largest erotic art gallery in the world. It is also across the street from the busy train tracks with trains honking their horns 24 hours a day. However, the most famous places on The Strip are further away.
The famous fountains of the Bellagio and its musical showcase are a seven-minute drive away, as are Stratosphere Tower Casino, Hotel and Tower, with its observation tower and exciting attractions. The sign “Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas” takes 10 minutes to arrive by car, while the Neon Museum, which has a collection of old Las Vegas signs, is a 15-minute drive away.
The Hoover Dam and Lake Mead are a little further away, and it takes 50 minutes to get there by car. Depending on traffic, the McCarran International Airport is between 10 and 15 minutes by car from the hotel.
Bedrooms of Trump International Hotel Las Vegas
The air-conditioned rooms at the Trump International Hotel are attractive, though fairly generic for a self-proclaimed luxury property. Sure, there’s marble and wood in swords, but some of the furniture feels cheap or tired, and details like the abstract art of the wall could be in any Marriott in the world. Expect large sets of wooden built-in cabinets, walls with tan walls and glass shelves adorned with art books and elegant trinkets.
The beds are one king or two queen beds, and all rooms have sitting areas with velvety couches and sofa beds. The kitchens are a good asset and, although they are small. They are incredibly equipped with Sub-Zero mini-refrigerators, two-burner ranges, microwaves, toasters, teapots and Keurig coffee makers with free coffee makers. The sink even has garbage disposals.
Other in-room rules include a flat-screen TV with cable channels, irons and ironing boards, shoe horns, lint brushes, safes, and luggage stands. Given the supposedly favorable state for the hotel’s business, it is surprising that friendly technology options such as USB plugs and multimedia stations are missing. The Wi-Fi connection is included in the mandatory rates of the hotel complex, but updates at higher speeds have an additional cost. The bathrooms are spacious and covered in marble, from the floors to the vanities with double sinks and the glass wall showers. Separate whirlpool tubs also come standard, as do hair dryers, illuminated beauty mirrors and Trump branded toiletries. The views from the rooms, especially from the upper floors, are stunning and offer views of the city or The Strip. Keep in mind that nearby train tracks mean that noise is a problem for light sleepers.
Most of the amenities of Trump International Hotel Las Vegas are included in your expensive hotel fee. The most striking feature of the property is its seventh floor, 110 feet long freshwater pool. There are shallow areas with loungers by the pool at both ends, and it is also surrounded by hammocks, sofa beds and cabins. The hotel charges a fee for using the lounge chairs and cabins, and there are no real views from the pool.
A free water station is located next to the expensive Trump hats, and there is a poolside bar that serves sandwiches and sandwiches. DJT is the haute cuisine restaurant on the property, with an American menu and happy hour specials for eating and drinking. The food at the two restaurants only receives mixed reviews from previous guests.
The hotel’s 24-hour gym overlooks the pool and is equipped with Technogym treadmills, elliptical machines, exercise bikes, medicine balls, weights and a CrossFit rope. Fitness classes and personal trainers are available for a fee. The Spa at Trump offers standard services such as facials, massages and body treatments. They also have treatments focused on teens and children, including facials, manicures, pedicures and makeup services.
There is a small business center and 12,500 square feet of meeting space; all event rooms have views of The Strip. Valet parking is surprisingly free, as are shoeshine services and a shuttle service to Caesars Palace and the Wynn Las Vegas Hotel. The latter is useful since the hotel does not have its own casino and walks to the lively end of The Strip, it is long and hot. There is also free Wi-Fi throughout the hotel, although upgrades at faster speeds cost more.
