The Trump Hotel in Vancouver, British Columbia, will be shutting down permanently.
While the hotel had originally shut down in March due to the global health crisis, the entire establishment has now declared that it was "closed for good," and will no longer be taking reservations.
The hotel—opened in February 2017—has had its windows boarded up for months, with the complex itself being worth an estimated $360 million. A ribbon-cutting ceremony by the president's children led to protests outside the building, which led to a hefty $105,000 policing bill for the city.
Trump had announced his plan to build the 63-storey complex during a visit in 2013, a visit that former Vancouver city councillor Kerry Jang immediately condemned.
“If it was me, I would try to get out of that deal and take the financial hit. As I see it, we should spare no expense when it comes to fighting racism in Canada. Quite frankly, it would make good business sense. He might want to do other buildings in Vancouver and people will be out protesting his company and that’s not good either,” said Jang.
The Trump hotel is the second tallest building in Vancouver, following the Shangri-La Hotel.
