Fans of “The Apprentice” may remember back in 2007, when Donald Trump announced his newest project, a 50-story building in the heart of trendy Soho that would be the first condominium-hotel in New York City. That “awe-inspiring masterpiece,” as Trump called it then, is finally opening to hotel guests tomorrow: the Trump SoHo New York.

Standing 391 feet high, the glittering glass tower has 46 floors, including an impressive two-story lobby (pictured below). There are just 12 rooms per floor, which speaks to the hotel’s desire to create an intimate boutique feel while still providing big-luxury-hotel services and amenities. These include an 11,000-square-foot spa with the first luxury hammams (Turkish baths) in New York and a two-story Italian restaurant, Quattro Gastronomia Italiana. The penthouse suite at the Trump SoHo is supposedly the largest on the East Coast, and comes with a private chef.

The Trump SoHo is the latest venture in the international real estate group run by Donald Trump and his children, Ivanka, Eric and Donald Jr. Ivanka in particular was heavily involved in the design and marketing of the hotel, which caters to a distinctly younger, hipper crowd than the company’s New York flagship, the Trump International Hotel Tower, on Central Park West. Tough financial times led to delays in construction and opening, and after a brisk beginning condo sales have slowed. All this is actually good news for potential hotel guests, however: according to a New York Times interview with Donald Jr., rooms at the Trump SoHo can be booked for a rate of $389 a night, lower than was originally planned.

  • What a beautiful tower/building. Definitely going to check this out next time I’m in NYC. Plus, I am a fan of Apprentice, just can’t figure out who’s going to win this celebrity season…although Mr. Michaels sure is entertaining.

    There are certainly a lot of details like that to take into consideration. That is a great point to bring up. I offer the thoughts above as general inspiration but clearly there are questions like the one you bring up where the most important thing will be working in honest good faith. I don?t know if best practices have emerged around things like that, but I am sure that your job is clearly identified as a fair game. Both boys and girls feel the impact of just a moment’s pleasure, for the rest of their lives.
