Trump International Hotel Las Vegas

I've just got back from a week in Las Vegas for a basketball tour. Myself and a small group went over to check out the NBA Summer League and whilst there we stayed at the Trump International. For once, I didn't organise the accommodation (as I have no connections in the US) so the Trump wasn't actually my selection but it was a good one for our week.

Its off the strip and is a non-gaming hotel so its quieter than staying in one of the casinos (and therefore a little cheaper than you might expect). Location wise its across the road from the Fashion Show Mall which was perfect for some shopping or cheaper food options.

I stayed in a one bedroom suite which had a massive ensuite that included a large spa bath, double shower and double vanity. The suite had a kitchenette (virtually a full kitchen) so you could stock up the fridge with essentials which was great considering we were there for six nights.

As it isn't on the strip, the hotel provides courtesy shuttles that pick up and drop off at The Wynn as well as Caesars. I took full advantage of these to get around Vegas and to cut down on some walking during the 40 degree days.

My only negative about the hotel was that it is pet-friendly. I have allergies towards cats and dogs so was surprised to see a number of people checking in to the hotel with their small dogs. Thankfully that was the only place I saw them so it wasn't a big deal.

The staff were great, the hotel was really nice, my room was massive ... so my hats off to the Donald!
