Trump's SoHo hotel where rooms used to cost $700 a night is cutting rates and laying

Feb 2007
In my mind
The irony of a Trump named and managed hotel laying off staff would be amusing if not for the folks suffering due to the president's idiocy.

Indeed, apparently there is a reduced demand to stay at Trump's hotel in SoHo, so staff is being let go and rates have been cut.

So much winning.

Room prices at Trump's SoHo hotel are plummeting - Business Insider

Trump SoHo is taking a beating.
The five-star Manhattan hotel is planning to lay off workers and reduce some of its services, WNYC's Ilya Marritz and Andrea Bernstein reported Wednesday.
The hotel has lost a key tenant. Last month, Grubstreet reported that Koi, the high-end sushi restaurant located in the hotel, would close due to a decline in business. The restaurant was scheduled to close on June 19 but has reportedly shuttered a month earlier than planned, according to WNYC.
"Before Trump won we were doing great. There were a lot of people we had, our regulars, who’d go to the hotel but are not affiliated with Trump," Jonathan Grullon, a busser and host at the restaurant, told GrubStreet. "And they were saying if he wins, we are not coming here anymore."
WNYC reported that Trump SoHo is preparing to lay off 12 of its 80 housekeepers and get rid of nighttime turn-down service.

Hotel room rates have also dropped. Deluxe and Superior rooms at the hotel, which have views of Manhattan and the Hudson River, now cost less than $400 per night on weekends. According to WYNC, in more popular times rooms cost around $700.
A Trump hotel spokesperson did not immediately respond to Business Insider's requests for comment.
The hotel is joint owned by two real estate development companies and managed by the Trump Organization, which is currently being run by the president's two oldest sons.
