Trump opens luxury hotel near White House

October 21, 2016 - UNITED STATES

Whether or not Donald Trump wins the U.S. presidency in November he has already established a presence on Pennsylvania Avenue, with the opening of the Trump International Hotel just five blocks from the White House.

A grand opening ceremony is planned for October, just weeks before the election, although the luxury hotel, located in the historic 1899 Old Post Office building, welcomed its first guests at a "soft opening" in September after undergoing a two-year, $200 million renovation.

The hotel boasts a $20,000-a-night suite, which fronts the presidential inauguration parade route.
