Trump Hotel to Open in DC Ahead of Schedule

WASHINGTON—The Trump International Hotel, Washington, D.C. set to open here in September is two years ahead of schedule. Located on Pennsylvania Ave., the 19th-century building was restored with original wood milling and paneling.

“For decades people have looked in wonderment at the magnificence of the old post office building and structure. There is nothing like it and we are so proud to have not only brought this incredible building back to life, but also to a position far greater than it ever was at its previous zenith,” said Donald J. Trump, chairman and president of The Trump Organization.

“Under our agreement with the U.S. government’s General Services Administration (GSA), the hotel was scheduled to be completed by August of 2018, but through our team’s hard work and close collaboration with the GSA, we will now be opening almost two years ahead of schedule, which is unheard of for a project of this size and complexity,” said Ivanka Trump, VP of development and acquisitions for The Trump Organization.  

The hotel will have 263 guestrooms, including 35 suites. The Trump Townhouse has a private entrance on Pennsylvania Ave. At 6,300 sq. ft. of interior space, it will be the largest suite in Washington, DC, and among the largest in the country, according to The Trump Organzation.  

The hotel’s column-free 13,200 sq. ft. presidential ballroom has a private entrance. In addition, the hotel will feature a 10,000-sq.-ft. luxury spa and fitness facility.
