Forbes got to take a look inside the new space, which took three months and $8 million to complete. Compared to Trump Soho's bi-level spa, which was once rumored to be Manhattan's largest, the new spa at Trump International is all about intimate, personalized service for hotel guests, including couples massages, steam baths, and Deborah Lippmann manicures.
What else? Oh, you know: detox facials, body scrubs, herbal wraps, gemstone massage and hot stone massage. The usual.
The most appealing part, however, is the 55-foot pool, which uses "natural" chlorine made from salt. Because as nice as all those rooftop pools sound, swimming outside in the Big Apple isn't always the best thing to be doing—especially on days like yesterday when temperatures are up in the high 90s. Plus, pigeon poop. So you're likely to get a cleaner, more intimate swim here. What's more, the salt chlorine is supposedly gentler on the eyes and skin.
If Trump International wasn't able to lure you away from its newer, sleeker, more expensive sibling downtown, maybe this will be just the enticement you need. Or, at least, that and Whole Foods.
