Trump National Doral Miami
What it is
A storied 800-acre hideaway since the 1960s, with four championship-level golf courses.
What it isn't
Just about golf. Activities abound, from the 125-foot waterslide in the pool to Har-Tru tennis courts.
What we think
All 643 guest rooms here are as luxe as they come (yes, no doubt Melania would be quite at home). And it’s more than the interior design, where golf leaf Spanish Revival touches and mahogany furnishings are requisite. Amenities include Natura Bisse Diamond Collection toiletries; Italian marble-lined bathrooms; Nespresso coffee machines; and throwback black and white photographs of golf icons adorning the walls. Each room is also fitted with a balcony, lanai, or jaw-dropping views; book a Spa Grand One-Bedroom Suite for a deep soaking tub and separate dining room and living room to sprawl out, plus a wrap-around balcony or lanai that peeps out on the golf course below. While you’re here, don’t miss at least one spa treatment; the 24 carat gold ultimate facial is exactly as blissful as it sounds.
You're here because
Stellar service is part of every stay; there are Trump Attache butlers at-the-ready to attend to your needs (whether that’s picking up groceries or hiring a nanny for a night on the town). And both kids and pets are included in that pampering (yes, there’s a children’s pool and a 24-hour arcade on-site; yes, dogs will find they have their own beds and bountiful treats).
Your heart skips a beat for a good steakhouse, so you’re ecstatic to find a BLT Prime right on the premises. Settled on a terrace overlooking the wide expanse of verdant lawns below, you’ve found proof that everything tastes better al fresco: your Black Angus porterhouse with haricot vert is the best you’ve ever had. “Waiter, may I have a slice of Meyer lemon cheesecake?” When in Miami, after all.
