A gilded off-Strip gem in Las Vegas
A hotel doesn’t have to have a Las Vegas Boulevard address for it to be glamorous. Trump International Hotel Las Vegas, which is situated just two blocks west of the busy Strip on Fashion Show Drive, offers an upscale, non-gaming retreat that’s a serene breath of fresh air (literally, you’ll find no casino smoke permeating the lobby here) compared to other Las Vegas hotels. The 64-storey, 24-karat gold and glass building is adorned with plenty of glitz—upon entering the 10,000-square-foot marble-clad lobby, you’ll see three Swarovski crystal chandeliers hanging overhead and plenty of luxe crown molding, and gold, white, and cream hues. The lobby also houses the clubby and masculine steakhouse DJT Restaurant and Lounge, where grabbing a cocktail at the 18-seat bar during the wee hours of the morning is something of a Sin City tradition.
Trump International Hotel Las Vegas has 1,282 hotel suites, which include studios, one-bedroom suites, and one- two- and three-bedroom penthouse suites. All rooms come with floor-to-ceiling windows highlighting mountain vistas, kitchenettes with Sub-Zero, Wolf and Bosch appliances, flat-screen televisions, bathrooms with marble countertops, spa tubs, and in-mirror plasma TVs. All suites (except studios) have a living and dining room area complete with an overstuffed, comfortable couch and seating for four at the dining table.
Other hotel highlights include the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star Spa at Trump with its nine treatment rooms (try the 90-minute Balancing Emeralds Massage) and expert facials using Kate Somerville skincare products. You can also work on your tan at the outdoor heated pool with sundeck. The niceties aren’t just for human guests, thanks to the Trump Pets program where canine concierge amenities range from a cozy dog bed and gourmet treats to a water bowl and custom collar. And when it’s time to bid adieu, the standard 4 p.m. checkout time makes checking in worthwhile.
