The Washington D.C. Trump International Hotel in D.C. opens with pricey rates

The nation’s capitol just got a major boost when it comes to luxury hotels, thanks to the latest offering of Trump International Hotel. This ultra-high end property features rooms from several hundred dollars a night to those priced at several thousand per night, marketed as one of the world’s finest hotels.

The Washington D.C. Trump International Hotel in D.C. opens with pricey rates

Presidential candidate Donald Trump just opened his latest venture, this one loosely combining his business interests with politics, now at home in the nation’s capitol. The Washington D.C. Trump International Hotel recently began accepting guests, though a Fox News Travel article acknowledges the hotel isn’t even fully complete yet.

The article quotes a hotel representative in saying that a majority of the 263 guest rooms in the hotel should be finished by late October, which is when the property will officially host ceremonies to mark its grand opening. Already, though, guests are beginning to glimpse a look inside the $200 million redevelopment project.

Located along Pennsylvania Avenue, the hotel was constructed within the historic Old Post Office building, part of a 60-year lease granted to the Trump Organization by the federal government. The Republican presidential candidate started the project in 2014 before entering the race for the White House, at that time expressing his hotel would someday be one of the world’s finest.

The hotel is banking on attracting a wealthy clientele, with rooms listed on the Trump Hotels reservation website starting around $750 per night during the soft-opening weekend, though future dates are more affordably priced. The website also lists details on the property’s dozens of suites includes three Presidential Suites. The largest ones command 4,000 and 6,300 square feet, one of which is in the space formally occupied by the Postmaster General.

The larger suite is said to be the largest hotel suite in the D.C. area and one of the largest in the entire United States. The Fox News article suggests it will go for $9,000 per night.

In addittion, another even more luxurious option for guests is the Trump Townhouse. The two level accommodation includes two bedrooms, a dining room with space for 24 guests, a workout room and an office. During Presidential inauguration week in January it will be priced at $100,000 per night, and guests must book at least five nights. The regular rate will drop to $18,750 after this week.

Amenities of the property include complimentary car service within the city, private shopping excursions, behind the scenes tours at some area museums and a 24-hour concierge. The grand lobby of the property includes choices in fine dining, though Trump’s comments on the campaign trail regarding Mexican immigrants led two of the original chefs to pull out of plans to open up restaurants within Trump International.

Even so there should be plenty to entertain guests in and around the property. Commonly ranked one of the most expensive cities to live, D.C. is also rich with things to do and experience, from the dozens of unique museums and historical sites to upscale retailers and fine dining options in one of America’s most intriguing destinations.
