Trump International Hotel Las Vegas
Unsuspecting and subtle, Trump International Hotel Las Vegas doesn’t try to be everything at once. In fact, it’s one of the few hotels on the Las Vegas Strip that is just that … a hotel. Sure, its got a spa, bar and restaurant, but it doesn’t flaunt massive shopping areas, big name shows or, most notably, a casino floor. In addition to the stellar views from the top floors, people flock to Trump for its quiet yet elegant atmosphere. The mantra at this Las Vegas hotel seems to focus on providing top-notch quality on the services it offers without spreading itself too thin. It achieves that goal.
A Little History
The Trump Hotel Collection was launched in October 2007, and renowned developer Donald J. Trump began building a host of top-tier properties around the world. Trump International Hotel Las Vegas, which embodies the vision of Trump and his three children, opened its doors on March 31, 2008.
Address: 2000 Fashion Show Drive, Las Vegas

Due to its location on Fashion Show Drive, off of Las Vegas Boulevard, Trump offers some of the best perspectives of the Strip.

Trump Las Vegas is not the place to go if you’re looking for hip nightclubs, live music and all-night entertainment. This sophisticated hotel offers luxury at its best, and that means guests are allowed to pamper themselves as they see fit. The lobby bar is casual but classy and is a good place to tip back a few glasses of wine while catching up with friends or preparing to go out for the evening (via taxi, of course!), but if you’re staying at Trump, you might also find that settling into your suite with the lush furnishings and stellar views of the city may be all you’d really like to do.

Guests at Trump are invited to take advantage of the hotel’s spa services. The resort and day spa is 11,000 square feet with nine treatment rooms, a fitness center, complete salon services and therapies that are exclusive to Trump Las Vegas. A heated outdoor pool is also available to guests.
People who would like to visit Las Vegas without being surrounded by all of the Las Vegas hype will find it at Trump International Hotel Las Vegas. If you want to escape the lights and sounds of the casino floor and keep your stay simple and sophisticated, this truly is the hotel for you.
If you are planning a romantic getaway, you might also consider booking a suite at Trump. The views alone make this hotel one of the best places to stay in Las Vegas.
Though Trump isn’t packed to the brim with entertainment and things to do, it is family friendly. The Trump Kids program provides everything a family might need to make a stay more comfortable, including a selection of children’s books, board games, movies and toys. Cribs are available upon request. The resort also caters to guests with pets and offers pet beds, toys and dog-walking services.
If you’re looking for budget accommodations or a hotel located in the middle of all of the action, you would be better off looking for a different place to stay.
