The Trump Taj Mahal is a five-star Atlantic City hotel and casino. The hotel is entirely themed around India's Taj Mahal, featuring beautiful Indian-inspired, or Mughal, architecture.

The Steel Pier is the Trump Taj Mahal's signature attraction. This popular amusement pier includes a double-decker carousel, ferris wheel, carnival-style games, and other attractions.

Great home base for AC visit

This was our first time to AC and we went because the price was great for a nice getaway. Taj is a very comfortable hotel. We liked being on the Boardwalk but also a short ride from the Borgata via cab or jitney (although cab fare was $13, the max within city limits - take the jitney instead for $2.25, they are only one stop apart so it's just as quick as a taxi.) Casino floor is a lot of fun, great cocktail service (drinks are comped when you're sitting at a machine or table), friendly staff. We were completely new to gaming and we ran into several very friendly employees who took time to explain a lot of rules and customs to us. Liked being next to the Showboat, which has more opportunities for lower-cost gaming just a couple minutes walk away. Room was GREAT - comparable to any 4 star hotel I've stayed at anywhere in the world, and the bathroom was one of the best I've seen in a while with 2 sinks, beautiful huge glass shower, separate toilet closet, separate vanity apart from the main sink. Would definitely stay here again.

Entertainment tip: Short drive from hotel

Borgata is the "in" place right now for younger/trendier crowds, and it's only one stop from Taj on the jitney and $2.25. Although maybe the jitney runs in one direction, I'm not sure, if that's the case you'd have to check because we only took jitney from Borgata to Taj.

Great Time!

Great time!!! Rooms brand new rooms. I have been to this hotel in years but it has high class rooms now fairly cheap. I guess this is to keep up with the new hotels. I had a great time and was more than pleased with the hotel room. It looks like a room that would cost $300 a night and I paid a fraction of that.

Great weekend away

We stayed at the Taj Mahal over President's Weekend. It was a great location on the Boardwalk and within walking distance to other attractions and restaurants. I would return.

Nice place to rest in AC

The Taj is nice. Be prepared for the onslaught of people of all walks of life and all ages who come to gamble. South Beach it aint! Lots of old people smoking in the casino. The smell of smoke as you take the escalator to your room is nauseating. I stayed at the Chairman Tower. I highly recommend spending some extra$$$ and staying there. The room was PERFECT! not too big or small. Well appointed and comfortable. No flat screen TV or HD Channels!!! What gives Trump?? If you want WiFi you have to pay. Definitely go shopping at the Outlet Stores there. The most fun you will have in AC.

Great for a quick break

i was happily surprised with the room design,cleanliness, and comfort. Although the checking in lines were long, the staff did their best to accommodate everyone as fast as they could. Room service takes a bit too long, and so was the restaurant reservation lines.

Weekend Retreat

Enjoyed the hotel, casino, food and bars. However, the entire place, including our room, reeked of cigarette smoke.
