All Donald Trump Wants for Christmas is a Certificate of Occupancy
"We'd like to open on Dec. 3," Trump said Monday afternoon. "This is the date we're shooting at, but that's up to the city.
"They want to make sure everything is perfect, and it is," he said.
Talks are continuing and the developer said he hopes for further word later in the week. Because of the phased nature of the opening, Trump is seeking a "partial certificate of occupancy," and the city is still reviewing the request, said Bill McCaffrey, a spokesman for the Department of Buildings.
The "partial" COO would be good for three floors of the hotel as the rest are still under construction. We checked the Five-Star Alliance site which had reservations for the hotel starting at $355 for a Trump Experience room on Dec. 19th. The "experience" is a 600-sq.ft. room with a kitchen and a sofa bed.
Let's hope Santa Claus will bring Trump a real certificate of occupancy before the year is out. Wouldn't want people to miss out on this experience.
