Just got back from New York after 6 nights at the Trump Soho, should have been 7 but British Airways badly let us down so we missed our connection and were a day late getting out of the UK - that's a whole story in itself.
First impressions positive with classy lobby and no queues at reception. No chocolate strawberries or champagne in sight though as other reviewers seem to have received. Up to our room on the 41st and I have to say I was a little disappointed. Our 16 year old was staying with my wife and I and the 1 King Premiere room and bathroom was a little bit on the small side, especially when the rollaway bed came in. We were looking directly out across the Hudson which would ordinarily have been an exceptional view, however, I believe it's probably the least interesting direction for your room to face at the Trump Soho. The furniture and fittings were classy though and I felt like I was somewhere special.
After one night I enquired about upgrading to a suite having turned down the option a few weeks earlier when I was in contact with the hotel. Apparently the price had gone up in those few weeks but after a bit of pleading I got the same deal I was originally offered. When I saw our new room on the 31st floor I was almost speechless. It had a large sitting area with picture window overlooking the Hudson again but the bedroom was on a corner looking both across the river and straight up 6th avenue with the Empire State Building and midtown Manhattan taking centre stage. The bathroom was huge with his and hers wash basins and a tub with a view straight up to midtown, glorious. There was also a separate powder room at he entrance to the suite. All in all it was stunning and well worth every cent of the extra cost. The lighting controls were a little fiddly especially so with 3 of us in there but the electric drapes were a nice touch of luxury.
We had no problems with any of the staff, at the very least they were all pleasant and courteous. I would single Leah out for special praise and I hope this feedback reaches her. She was an absolute delight and I truly could not have wished for more.
This vacation was intended as a treat and although it started badly with a missed connection, it turned into a dream come true once we got into the suite. Location was fine with a choice of subway stations within a few minutes walk. Didn't eat in the hotel - couldn't afford it having blown the budget on the room, but there were options in the vicinity. Soundproofing fine with very little street noise finding its way up to us. Didn't notice anything from neighbouring rooms either. All in all highly recommended especially if you can get a good deal on a suite.
