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.

  • Not sure why Tripadvisor still has this place to be reviewed as the casino closed two days after we visited. Some of the staff were outside picketing as they were on strike but inside we saw no one. V...  read more »
  • this place is a cool place very interesting and good gaming the food is good nice staff and management 
  • Another example of corruption & greed . Let's turn this into a museum of lost hopes & dreams. This is what you get when inmates run the asylum. 
  • Rooms were spacious and cleanly kept. Service was polite and friendly. Parking was a little difficult, but manageable. Overall, a great place to stay. Would stay here again.
  • 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 love this place.I have eaten the most delectable meals in The Rim and in the buffet and in the White House Sub Shop (a branch location of a true Atlantic City institution!).... I took 2 dance classes on a ladies' media tour of Scores Sports Bar & Adult Entertainment Complex. I have attended conferences there including the SoConTaj. I have been in some of the rooms.I was very happy with them. The people who work there are delightful friendly people. Security is sensible and efficient,they even turned a blind eye the 2 times I made Youtube videos walking around on the casino floor! I love attending concerts at the Mark Etess Arena.Its shape and acoustics makes for almost all seats being pretty decent even the nosebleed ones.AND the sound mix is sensible NOT too loud or distorted,and I mean rock concerts. Just last night I got to see Boston, a band I have loved for the 40 years of its existence. I know there is a strike.I USED to sympahise with labor uons,I WAS a union gal back in the day HOWEVER this union is greedy over healthcare minutia SO they activelycaaigned to DISCOURAGE parts from coming to the Taj Mahal.THAT is evil considering the employees who work there,many non union,will NOW also lose their jobs come October 10. Shame on Local 54. That said it is NOT the casino's fault.And the workers including security are bending backwards to accommodare guests,often working different positions and extra hours to keep things running as smoothly as can be expected. BTW the food quality is STILL amazing during this strike. I wish they would not close. I try to come by a few times week if I am able JUST to give them my business.
  • 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 !!!!
  • Spectacular views from the Chairman's Tower rooms. Because of the nice rooms and beautiful views that have windows from the floor to the ceilings, this is one of the top rooms in Atlantic City. Good food options too ranging from great food at the Hard Rock Cafe (great prices too) to the less expensive but good food options at the food court area when you are coming in from the parking garage. It also a top spot because it's right across from the Steel Pier. Adult rides including helicopter tour are in the back side of the pier. Great place to stay!
