Ok so let's be clear, staying in New York is never going to be the cheapest thing you ever do, but when you stay in a hotel that's so impressive you forget how expensive it was, you're onto a very good thing. In this case, that impressive hotel is most definitely the Trump Soho.
Situated on the edge of Soho, New York's coolest place, filled with everything from designer stores to neighbourhood pizza parlours (Ben's Pizza on the corner of Spring and Thompson is thoroughly recommended - just don't think you can share a 16" pizza between two, because it really can't be done!!) , Trump Soho is in a great location.
The whole place is so beautifully and tastefully decorated that if I was rich enough, I'd like someone to do my house up just like it - bronze metallic leather wingback chairs and huge sculptural chandeliers in the lobby, leather walls and block wood panelling in the corridors and lifts, super comfy armchairs, gorgeous bathroom tiling and oversized button-down headboard in the guest suites. Our room also featured what looked like a 42" TV, with an all-in-one remote that controlled the electric curtains (oh yes!), the room temperature and lighting - genius. The bathroom, which had a separate bath alongside the super duper shower, also gave us two sinks / vanity units, which when you have two girls sharing, makes all the difference!
There were lots of nice little touches in the room, including a very handy little kitchenette type area (with a fridge, microwave and sink), a wardrobe which lit up when you opened the door, a total of three phones (one next to the bed, one on the TV / desk unit, and one in the bathroom), plenty of notepaper and pens, a bench / ottoman at the end of the bed, and lots of useful guest information, such as the pillow menu on offer, which naturally we took full advantage of! One of the most impressive extras were the bathrobes on offer, which were just fabulous!! I often find that towels and robes in American hotels really aren't big enough for anyone over a size 12 to use comfortably, but the Trump Soho totally confounded my previous experiences, as the robe and bath towels were all plenty big enough, and I just regret that I didn't purchase a robe to take home with me - maybe next time.
The reception, concierge, bellboy and housekeeping staff were all really helpful, friendly and professional - particular thanks must go to Roger, our check-in receptionist, who very kindly managed to wangle us a corner room, and Mike, our favourite bellboy - and our one negative experience with service (a rather embarrassing and uncomfortable incident at the pool area and bar) was very quickly rectified at main reception when checking out.
No doubt about it, Mr Trump knows what he's doing when it comes to creating a hotel experience to remember in New York, I was massively impressed by the Trump Soho, and wouldn't hesitate in recommending it.
