The Trump Plaza in Atlantic City has an excellent position right in the middle of the Boardwalk. This makes it ideal for visiting the Caesars Pier, dining in the many surrounding restaurants, or visiting the casinos either side.
Despite it's incredible position, the casino itself, as well as the rooms could do with a little updating. That said, Trump are obviously aware of this fact and the room rates reflect this, so there are bargains to be had.
Upon entering the Trump Plaza lobby, you are greeted with a magnificent site - it truly is spectacular, with the escalator trip up tot he casino taking you past shimmering gold mirrors and impressive chandeliers.
The expectation and anticipation builds, as you travel up towards the casino, only to result in something of a let-down when you get there. Alas, the casino has seen better days and can only be described as drab.
Despite the drab, old look in The Trump Plaza, Atlantic City, it will appeal to fans of old-school slot machine. The casino has a lot of old slots on the floor, including the first versions of Lobstermania, Texas Tea, Money Storm, Alien, the Chinese takeout slots and the classic Cleopatra.
But, if it's new games, modern facilities and class, you are looking for, you would be far better off at one of the more modern, new or updated casinos in Atlantic City. For example, the fantastic new Revel casino, or the recently renovated Atlantic City Club Casino
Looking around the Trump Plaza, it's easy to see that it must have been something quite special in it's day. The Trump casinos have been reported to have been failing over the last few years and it's easy to see why - if you can't provide players what they desire, they will naturally, move on to other places.
Let's hope for better things from the Trump casinos in the future - they have a great location, so there surely must be a big opportunity for the company to re-state them to their original glory.
