    Trump proposes luxury hotel for Old Post Office Pavilion in downtown Washington:)

    Trump Hotel Collection, the luxury lodging brand that bears the name of the New York real estate magnate, has proposed transforming the historic Old Post Office Pavilion into a nearly 300-room luxury hotel complete with conference meeting space, a spa and museum.

    Though listed on the National Register of Historic Places and located on Pennsylvania Avenue between the White House and the Capitol, the Old Post Office has been deemed under-utilized by the government. The General Services Administration began soliciting proposals.to redevelop the property in March, setting a July 20 deadline.

    I have stayed at the Trump in Chicago many times; it is very nice. Hopefully the DC one will match up.

    This would be a great change for this building. I was recently denied admission to the food court that is the main occupant presently because the crack security team that protects fast food joints from terrorists insisted on me removing my wallet and giving it to them for inspection before being allowed past the checkpoint. Since I refused, no pizza slice for me, but the country remains safe.

    That building is so gray and dark. If they can spruce it up, it would be amazing with that giant atrium, but I have a hard time believing they will succeed.
