The staff at Donald Trump’s soon-to-open hotel in Washington said requests about holding events at the luxury space are pouring in for Election Day and Inauguration Day.
“We’re getting a lot of inquiries,” Mickael Damelincourt, managing director for the Trump International Hotel Washington, D.C. said.
Damelincourt said the prime Pennsylvania Avenue real estate is playing a part in the interest.
“Obviously because of our location… many, many people are looking for information.”
The majority of Election and Inauguration Day inquiries have been from groups and companies looking into reserving the more than 13,000-square-foot ballroom along with guest rooms.
“We know for sure we’ll be extremely busy,” Damelincourt said, predicting sell-out crowds.
The hotel, where a guest room starts at USD$545 per night, recently announced it’ll be opening two years ahead of schedule, in September 2016. Damelincourt said at the time of the announcement that he’s “never seen so much interest and so many early bookings as I have at Trump D.C.”
There’s no plan for Trump to stay at his hotel on November 8, however.
“I think he’s very busy right now. I don’t think he’s thinking about that for the time being.”
