Located at Atlantic’s city Boardwalk, Trump Taj Mahal was inaugurated in 1990 and had an estimated cost of one billion dollars. Owned by billionaire Donald Trump, the Taj Mahal has recently invested in over $500 million in renovations. More than just a resort, the Taj Mahal has a big casino, great restaurants, several boutiques, its own night club, entertainment theaters with celebrities like Tom Jones and many more first-class amenities. Also, the Taj Mahal has reconstructed the famous Steel Pier after it had burnt down in 1982; once again this amusement park is open for the whole family.
Trump Taj Mahal has over 1,200 rooms. Their 980 standard hotel rooms are comfortable but not very spacious. The three different kinds of suites they provide are finely decorated and have better views of the city and the ocean. The more expensive suites have recently been refurbished and feature multiple living spaces, your own Jacuzzi and a hall bathroom. If your budget is flexible I recommend anything above the Contemporary Room with ocean view.
EATING OUT AT THE TAJ MAHAL
The Taj Mahal has two types of restaurants. It has a five-star selection of restaurants which include:
Dynasty – with a variety of spicy Asian dishes
Mark Anthony’s – traditional Italian kitchen with original presentations

The other restaurants are more casual, such as:
Hard Rock Café – world-famous restaurant with nice view of the Boardwalk
Sultan’s Feast – an enormous buffet open for breakfast, lunch and dinner
Spice Road – a collection of eateries serving from burgers to seafood
BUSINESS AND RELAXATION
Taj Mahal has been able to combine these two opposite activities. The resort offers business packages for company meetings.
