Trump Taj Mahal Casino, Atlantic City
(2.2/5 based on 800+ reviews on the web)
The Trump Taj Mahal is a casino located at 1040 Boardwalk in Atlantic City, New Jersey, United States, in the casino area along the shore. The casino is owned by Trump Entertainment Resorts, a subsidiary of Icahn Enterprises. Before the poker room closed in 2015, the Taj Mahal had one of the largest poker rooms in Atlantic City, second in size only to The Borgata.The casino was officially inaugurated by its then-owner Donald Trump in 1990, with Michael Jackson performing at the ceremonies, and was built at a total cost of nearly one billion dollars. Restaurants at the Taj include Dynasty, Il Mulino New York, Moon at Dynasty, Safari Steakhouse, and Hard Rock Cafe. It is also the home of Scores, the country's first in-casino strip club.In November 2014, the Trump Taj Mahal announced plans to close and cease casino and hotel operations by the end of the year if the union would not drop its appeal of the casino's bankruptcy ruling, rebuffing their demand to restore health insurance and pension coverage. On December 18, 2014 the Trump Taj Mahal reached an agreement with its union and remained open, but did not restore the contested benefits.In February, 2016, the Trump Taj Mahal was purchased by billionaire Carl Icahn as Trump Entertainment Resorts exited Chapter 11 bankruptcy.

  • I went to Atlantic City with a group of friends for the weekend. We stopped at several casinos prior to going to Taj Mahal. You notice the difference the moment you walk in. It is, by far, the most elaborate and elegant of the casinos. Even the carpeting is above the norm; it is thicker. The architecture is actually worth looking at. The restaurants have restaurant quality meals including one with a noodle bar. Gambling is gambling so in that area there is no difference between the Taj and any of the others. I have been to Vegas many, many times. In my view, the Taj Mahal is the only casino in Atlantic City that can compare favorably to the Vegas casinos. I cannot comment on the rooms in any of the hotels as we stayed with friends.
  • When we went there, there were employees protesting because the new owner of the place apparently took off health insurance for the workers. However, the reason why I'm giving it a 2-star rating is because of the fact that a lot of their machines need major upgrades. There are only a few NEW machines and you can tell that most of them are old and also not many different slots to choose from (not many variation). I'm not saying you should not come here, but out of all the casinos we went to during our stay at Atlantic City this is in the very bottom of my list.
  • I went there with family to the beach, did not use the casino. I have to be really honest, the place is a dump, really disgusting and no hyginiec at all. When I first arrived, the cigarrette smell is really strong even if you are not staying in non-smoking floors. The room had shreeded cheese on the carpet and crumbs, looks like it was not properly vacuumed. I had to request service room cleaning and realized they have a crappy vacuum cleaner which doesn't absorb the crumbs. They had to get another vacuum and were able to vacuum. I also saw roaches coming out of the wallpaper from the bathroom. They don't clean the rooms unless you request it. It was pretty disgusting. The only positive is that the location is really convinient to the beach. The pool was also packed with children, none supervising, it was really ghetto to say the least.
  • I give it 2 stars cause I been going there since I was born 23 years ago and it's sad to see how down and dirty it's become. When I stayed there it was beautiful fun and the food was great! Now the buffet is closed Burger is closed most the restaurants are closed the rooms I heard are covered in dust and filth due to the 1,000 workers on strike and now it's going to shut down cause the Billionaire won't give the workers what they need and want!! It's disgusting how this man can do this to these people and to the Taj itself.... It's a AC landmark and now it's gonna be shuttered like the other 4 casinos.. I'm hoping someone takes over renovates the whole place and hires its workers back! People been working there since the place opened now their gonna be jobless and live on a fixed income... My heart breaks for all the families and I HATE Ican for doing this !!!!
  • My wife and I were very impressed by this hotel. I wouldn't expect anything less from a place owned by Mr. Trump though. Hotel was very clean and very beautiful inside and out. It is right on the boardwalk which is perfect! Room service was awesome and the staff was very nice!
