Visible from anywhere in town, this white tower is the first hotel at the mouth of the expressway. It's close to trains and buses and right on the Boardwalk. The Trump aesthetic of ostentatious wealth is evident in the marble lobby and the designers have tried to echo the feeling in guest rooms, where dark paisleys and green stripes mix with gilded mirrors and glass tables on golden pillars. Ocean View Jacuzzi suites speak for themsleves, but only half of the other rooms
face the ocean. Many must settle for city (bay) views. Dining options are limited to mostly chains and fast-food, but the hotel has the unique advantage of featuring an on-site exhibition space for traveling art and science installations.
