Ivanka Trump in the run to convert Washington’s Old Post Office Pavilion into a luxury hotel

There would be few who haven’t heard of Donald Trump or the luxurious Trump Hotel properties. And taking their brand name ahead is his pretty daughter with an amazing business sense, Ivanka Trump. Trump Hotel Collection has now set its sights on transforming the historic Old Post Office Pavilion at Washington DC into a 300-room luxury hotel that will be equipped with amenities like a conference meeting space, a spa, and a museum. The iconic under-utilized monument, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, is located on Pennsylvania Avenue right between the White House and the Capitol. Although the GSA isn’t revealing details about the submissions publicly, in an interview, Ivanka said, “The Old Post Office building is an iconic building in Washington, D.C. and a spectacular opportunity for redevelopment. Preserving the architectural integrity of this great asset should be fundamental to all plans presented to the GSA.” The Trump Hotel Collection has its properties at Chicago; New York; Las Vegas; Waikiki, Hawaii; Dubai and Panama.
