Trump International Hotel & Tower New York
At the heart of mid-town Manhattan, the Trump International Hotel & Tower rises 52 storeys into the sky, soaring above Central Park with its gleaming black glass tower. Catering to business and leisure travellers demanding the highest standards of service, it is New York’s only 5-star hotel with a 5-star restaurant, and delivers the luxury and exclusivity that are expected from the Trump brand. In fact, this hotel is considered the jewel in the Trump Collection crown.
Home from Home
Despite the grandeur of the hotel, the emphasis is on making guests feel at home, and the marble lobby, though beautiful and hung with chandeliers, is small and intimate, more like that of an apartment building. The staff quickly get to know guests by name, and the hotel is known for a level of personalised service and attention that immediately gives guests the sense of being at home from home. The signature service of the hotel brand is the Trump Attaché, whereby guests’ preferences are noted and their needs anticipated throughout their stay.
A high point of your stay at the Trump International will certainly be dining at the Michelin-starred Jean Georges Restaurant, one of New York’s top dining venues. Master chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten produces an exquisite blend of French haute cuisine with American and Asian influences, with seasonally changing menus using fresh locally sourced ingredients. This is all enjoyed in a visually stunning setting, with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking Central Park.
Jean-Georges’ delectable cuisine can also be relished at Nougatine, serving light, fresh dishes in a slightly more casual setting — in that there isn’t a strict dress code. In warmer months you can enjoy the delectable food on the Mistral Terrace, along with Central Park views, and the exhibition kitchen enables you to watch the experts preparing your meal. With unique Philippe Starck designer furniture, the Terrace is also the place to enjoy the hotel’s signature cocktails, as well as a wine collection that more than lives up to Trump standards.
Health and Fitness
In the basement, the state-of the-art fitness centre includes the beautifully designed marble-patterned Trump Spa, featuring three luxury treatment rooms, and offering therapies from all round the world, including goal-oriented treatments like Sleep Well, to cure jet lag. Unusually for New York hotels, there is also a 55-metre heated swimming pool. At the fitness centre, which feels like an exclusive health club, guests can opt for a personal trainer or an Internet-based fitness program, and fitness evaluation and nutritional counselling are also available.
