Remember when we got all excited that Trump SoHo had announced an exact opening date rather than giving us a vague “opening early 2010” or “opening Spring”, like so many other hotels? Well, scratch that. The hotel will no longer open on February 1st. Bummer.

First there was the lack of Trumpian fanfare that you expect to precede a grand opening, and then we heard from a reader that February bookings at the hotel would not be honored. What gives?

Trump SoHo’s general manger David Chase confirms that February 1st is no longer the opening date—and that at this stage no new date has been announced. Ivanka’s Trump SoHo Countdown contest is still running (you have until January 31st to enter) and the opening-party part of the prize still stands … whenever the party is rescheduled.

Chase is in the midst of hiring up to 380 staff and the hotel’s PR rep tells us that the site is a hive of activity:

We are swiftly moving forward—interior finishes are near completion, furniture is being delivered to guest rooms, chefs are perfecting the menus in the kitchen, and the hotel staff is actively preparing for opening.

Rooms are still starting at $599 on the hotel’s online reservation system for March 1st but apparently there will be a promotional rate of $399 available in the spring, based on availability.

We’d tell you that the latest spate of hotel delays can be attributed to something in the water, but truth be told this is just another day at the office in the Hotel Opening Tracking Game. Let’s hope Trump’s signature pomp and pride get this baby out of the gate sooner rather than later.

Argh

Was looking forward to this one.  So wait, what is the first date you can book the rooms on the website?  Is this just a week or two permit delay or something more?

March 1st ...

... is the first date you can book on the online res system but the hotel did not want to name a new date or reason for the delay. They promised an update soon.

Call me optimistic but I don't think they'll push this back too far. It's Trump!


Wow

Trump Soho's gonna stomp on all the little "boutique" hotels in downtown Manhattan. It looks amazing!

Will be checking it out

Coming to the states in November for a Black Eyed Peas gig and it looks like I have found my hotel...:)

A beautiful hotel condominium for a comfortable stay during a business trip.  Be sure to stop there.
