Trump Hotel Prices Skyrocket Around 4th of July

By any measure, the cost to stay at Trump International Hotel around the 4th of July is extraordinary. The hotel, which almost never sells out, is sold out on the 3rd and 4th of July. On the 5th, the prices are double the average for the cheapest room available in comparable luxury hotels. The rate on the 5th is also more than double the average for comparable Fridays at the Trump Hotel.

While the cost is extraordinary, it is not a complete mysteryĖPresident Trump plans to hijack and politicize the Washington D.C. 4th of July celebration this year, and his namesake hotel is just blocks away from the National Mall, where the festivities will take place. Itís likely that his supporters and political allies plan to descend on his hotel around the holiday, which would come as no surprise, given that no modern president has so blatantly profited from his political position before, or centered the 4th of July celebration so squarely around himself.



The Trump Hotel is known to be more expensive, and more vacant than other comparable DC hotels, but it has also been one of the only bright spots in Trumpís financial portfolio. In 2018, he made more than $40 million from his DC hotel alone, which is known to be a social center for the presidentís supporters and popular destination for those looking to curry favor with the president.

1. I am beyond depressed that he is taking over the DC 4th of July festivities...

Not that I was planning to attend, mind you, but now, I will have to boycott tv, radio, internet if I want to avoid his interrupting that holiday.

Will attend my own local fireworks display and spend the day outdoors, weather permitting.
