Inside the Newly Opened Trump Soho Penthouse Suites
The Trump Soho sends word that their full collection of 11 penthouse suites is finally open for booking, after the hotel's April debut, meaning you can now spend the night with panoramic views of New Jersey and Manhattan—if you can afford the price of admission.
We had a chance recently to scope a couple of the suites and the views are indeed magnificent, including the cityscapes from bathtubs and a direct view up Sixth Avenue to the skyscrapers of Midtown. (The view was even better from the 400-square-foot outdoor terrace attached to one of the suites.) On the west side of the hotel, guests can spy The Standard, which looks remarkably tiny from the 44th floor of the Trump. At least one suite we saw also had a telescope for spying on New Jersey.
Also new is a 33rd-floor "penthouse" that includes a pool table and high-end A/V equipment that the hotel is positioning as an ideal place for group sports watching.
While the suites are by no means cheap, they could pass as reasonable in the Soho hotel market. We found one two-bedroom penthouse at $1,500 for a late March weekend, with the more impressive options starting at $2,800. The top-flight suites are still in the stratosphere, though, at $6,500 a night.
