Trump's luxury Washington, DC, hotel opens, without fanfare

Associated Press Associated Press 12/09/2016

WASHINGTON — The luxury hotel that Donald Trump built in an iconic downtown Washington building has opened its doors to customers able to pay $900 a night or more for a room.

The Trump International Hotel, Washington, D.C., opened without fanfare Monday afternoon. Grand-opening ceremonies are being planned for October. Trump tweeted a photo of himself with the hotel staff but did not make a public appearance.

Rooms at the hotel are starting at $895 a night.

The Trump Organization won a 60-year lease from the federal government to transform the Old Post Office building on Pennsylvania Avenue into a hotel.

Monday's opening attracted some protesters who disagree with Trump's politics. Two well-known chefs backed out of plans to build restaurants at the hotel because of Trump's comments about Mexican immigrants.
