Bookings At Trump Hotels Are Down

June 15, 2016 in Daily Bulletin

Priceonomics wrote about the effect that Trump’s rise has had on bookings at Trump’s hotels:

  • According to one travel website bookings at Trump hotels have decreased by 59% year over year.
  • In cities such as New York and Las Vegas bookings have decreased by over 70%.
  • Even in Atlantic City – long Trump’s stronghold – bookings are down by 17%.
  • Of course, if Trump goes onto win the Presidency, his hotels will probably do well in the long run since there’d be some novelty to staying at a hotel branded with an American President’s name.
  • If he should lose though it’s possible the damage to his brand will be permanent.
