The Trump Hotel Las Vegas is a 64-story luxury hotel, condominium, and timeshare located on Fashion Show Drive near Las Vegas Boulevard, just off the Las Vegas Strip in Paradise, Nevada, named for real estate developer Donald Trump. It is located across the street from Wynn Las Vegas on 3.46 acres (14,000 m2), near the Fashion Show Mall, and features both non-residential hotel condominiums and residential condominiums. The exterior windows are gilded with 24-carat gold.[1] The hotel is a member of The Leading Hotels of the World.

Tower 1 opened on March 31, 2008. The hotel features restaurants DJT, named after the developer, as well as a poolside restaurant, H2(eau).[1] At the time of opening it was announced that Donald Trump, due to the overwhelming seller's response from his first tower, intends to build a second, identical tower next to the first tower; the mid-2000s recession put that plan on indefinite hold. It is Las Vegas's tallest residential building at 640 feet (200 m).[2] In September 2012, the Trump Organization announced that it sold roughly 300 condominium units in Trump International Hotel Las Vegas to Hilton Worldwide's timeshare division, Hilton Grand Vacations.[1]

History

The project was announced in 2004 as a joint project among Donald J. Trump, Phil Ruffin, and Jack Wishna. The project was designed by Bergman, Walls & Associates and built by Perini Building Company.[3]

Prior to construction, Trump built a sales center for his tower on Las Vegas Boulevard. The temporary sales center cost nearly $3 million.[citation needed]

On December 4–5, 2015, employees voted to unionize the hotel property.[4]
