Let Trumpets Sound & the Winner Is.......



The Winner of the Pillow from Anita the owner of Pillow Mint is Lisa Porter! She chose the Vintage Ornate Urvi which is so unique , really stunning! Congratulations Lisa!!


I was so fortunate to get away with a friend for a long weekend at The Trump Hotel in Las Vegas. Such a fabulous time and the hotel is superb and five star. The first class service and the staff were extremely accommodating.


Mere steps from the Las Vegas Strip, the 64-story Trump Hotel Las Vegas towers gracefully above all nearby buildings with a strong golden facade reflective of the richness of the iconic Donald J. Trump hotel collection.

So Luxurious!


Stylish, classy and conveniently located, Trump Hotel Las Vegas takes comfort to the next level. The lobby is impeccably decorated with several plush places to sit and relax, including seating in the DJT bar. Personal service at the non-smoking, non-gaming property is second to none, starting at the valet and extending throughout a stay.


Rooms in the all-suite Trump Hotel feature king-sized beds with Sterns and Foster mattresses and 500 thread count Bellini sheets, European-style kitchens and appointments by Wolf, Bosch, and Sub-Zero. The luxurious Italian marble baths are outfitted with twin sinks, custom vanities, marble counter tops, spa tubs and a 14-inch television embedded in the mirror.



The Pool, spa, and Exercise rooms are incredible. None of these photos reflect the really grand luxury of the hotel.

One thing we really appreciated was that the hotel itself does not have a Casino which meant a peaceful relaxing atmosphere. Of course we were surrounded by Casinos galore nearby, although we were there to wind down and just enjoy. I do recommend the excellent Jubilee production at Bally's.

Oh my... lucky you!! Those images are gorgeous.. I'm not sure I'll make it that far... so for now.. will just be pleased looking at your pics again.. :-)

Kimmy said...

Sounds like a wonderful time was had by all and Trump does know a thing or two about luxurious comfort. :-)
I am in complete agreement about the casino not being in the hotel-total and complete peace.
Have a lovely day, cheers!

Lisa said...

Yippeeeee! I am so excited to have won this gorgeous pillow! As I may have mentioned, I chose the vintage ornate because it will be a beautiful addition to my mother's new bedding. She will be so surprised and will just love that it came via Art By Karena since she is an artist also!
I will email you her info!
Thanks so much to Anita at Pillow Mint for her generous gift to all of us.

What a fun trip! I have great memories of a trip to Vegas, but you know what they say...What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas!

lisaroyhandbags said...

Sounds like a great weekend and the Trump hotel looks amazing! The last time we were in Vegas we were at the Paris and ate at the Bellagio but The Trump will have to be the next one we stay at!! : )

Karena said...

Denalee I had no idea you were in Las Vegas.

It was a dream trip for me at this time, I have not been away for quite a while! Thanks to all of you for your comments!

Looked like a fun trip and congrats to Lisa for winning a beautiful pillow!

SPLENDEROSA said...

Oh Karena, this looks lovely. All his properties are simply top-drawer. THE Hotel is also no-casino & is so much more relaxing without that constant noise. I love Las Vegas, but not for casinos. I know you had a wonderful time, dear. And, that precious Lisa Porter winning..that's wonderful!!

Congratulations to Lisa on winning and thanks for sharing photos of the Trump hotel with us. Looks like a great alternative to those tacky casino joints in Vegas. Glad you had fun and a little down time, Karen. xx

The Shiny Pebble said...

I love the idea of a game free hotel in Vegas. This place looks just every bit as fabulous and luxurious as you describe it. How fun!

Tonia @Chic Modern Vintage said...

I have only been to Vegas one time, but looking at these makes me what to take a trip.

beachbungalow8 said...

I have never seen the inside of this hotel. Everyone who knows my feelings on vegas, tells me they'd be so different if I would stay at the Trump. I think they're right. Lucky you!

Love your new photo, Karen! Have a fabulous weekend.

Privet and Holly said...

Oh, I bet you had
an absolute blast,
Karena! I love
Las Vegas but have
not been in a couple
of years. Can you
believe that my
grandma used to
dance under the
direction of Don
Arden, who created
the Jubilee production,
back in the 1930's?
Those were the vaudville
years; and it was
NOT a topless show!
Happy Weekend!
xx Suzanne

Yah for Lisa, couldn't go to a more fabulous lady. Karen your stay at the Trump in Vegas looked incredible. I love the fact there is no casino but close @ hand. The 'ding.ding..ding' goes weary after a bit! We own a home in Henderson but have not been back for almost 7 years. So much has changed. Thanks for sharing your great experience & a lovely weekend to you x
