Trump Plaza was the first of three casinos Mr. Trump owned before his gambling businesses in Atlantic City cratered and went bankrupt for good, leaving a trail of unpaid contractors and suppliers — and a bad taste for the Trump brand in this struggling city of 38, Small said after the implosion.
As he campaigned for the Republican nomination for president in , Mr. Trump frequently boasted about how he outwitted Wall Street lenders and rode the value of his name to riches in Atlantic City. In fact, he used little of his own money, a New York Times investigation found, and he shifted personal debts to the casinos, leaving the burden of his failures on investors and others who had gambled on his success.
Small said in an interview last month. His casinos also generated tens of millions of dollars in tax revenue.

It was a pleasant surprise to be in an AC casino that was brightly lit, clean, didn't smell like cigarettes, and had attentive staff. The SoundWave venue was great for a concert! It was a little strange for a concert to have most of the attendants sitting down, but there was a great view.
It's the kind of venue where there are no bad seats. The section was only about 30 meters from the stage. The acoustics are well tuned-- the bass really resonates nicely in the room. A few things to mention are that we were totally lost trying to find our room, we rode on an elevator that wasn't even in the correct place for about ten minutes only to find out we needed to take different elevators.
We went to the buffet dinner which was very nice, good food, good service but the wait in line was ridiculous. Many people were annoyed and left. Next, I played in the casino at the roulette table for over an hour only to be told that I wasn't entitled to the t-shirt. No one knows the right information because I received a different story from each person I spoke to.
The room was clean but not very big or elaborate. I asked if we could have an upgrade and I was told no. Those are only for the big gamblers until further notice. I think this casino has the makings to be really great but the only helpful people on the staff are the housekeeping people, as they were the ones who actually showed us how to get around and where things were located. We were given a map on the way out the day of check out.
I'm trying to decide whether or not to give Hard Rock another try at a later date. Amazing experience. There is very clear signage telling you anything you need to know. The staff was all incredibly polite and even when they did not know an answer, they all went out of their way to find me one. Even had an employee deny a tip because they didn't feel that they had earned it.
For those complaining about not winning, I was down the first day and up the second, it's a casino, that's what happens. Stayed in the Celebrity Suite which was very clean, bedding is incredibly comfortable and the views were amazing, especially at night. Will definitely be returning to this casino in the near future. Well done. Write review. Cinnaminson, NJ 78 Exp. Good way to end the day! Just pick any of the 2, slot machines to play or be a part of any of the table game actions.
