The average price of a room at Trump hotels across the world have dropped by as much as 64% in some locations.
Some 300 days after Donald Trump became the USA’s 45th president, analysis from Travel money provider, FairFX, has revealed that the cheapest rooms dropped in price by an average of 26% and the most expensive rooms decreased by 20%, equivalent to around £1,400.
Out of 13 Trump hotels and resorts researched around the world, the cheapest room can be found at Trump Las Vegas, where a mini break this weekend (24 November) would cost £232 for two nights.
This is over £400 cheaper for the same room type than in January, a 64% reduction. The second least expensive room is at the Trump Panama, priced at £234, a 32% decrease since January.
Weekend stays at the Trump Vancouver, Canada, at Macleod House and Lodge in Scotland, at Trump Doonbeg in County Clare Ireland or at the Trump Doral in Florida will fall just short of £400.
The average cost for the best available room this weekend is down by £1,374 since January from £6,821 to £5,447, a 20% decrease since Trump’s inauguration.
The most expensive room is the Trump Townhouse at £37,907, however this is £10,000 less than inauguration weekend.
At £11,007, the Trump Doral in Miami is the second most expensive destination this weekend, although two nights in the Presidential Suite are £2,849 cheaper than they were for the same room in January, equivalent to a 21% decrease. The Trump Waikiki is over £1,000 cheaper, equivalent to 17% off.
Ian Strafford-Taylor, CEO of FairFX, said: “When it comes to holidays timing is everything, and just 300 days after Trump’s inauguration, prices for a weekend in one of his hotels have for the most part decreased.
“Whilst the big events, like the inauguration in Washington, will usually cause prices to rise in that city for a particular weekend, the decreases in other places suggest that it doesn’t necessarily pay to be presidential.”
