In this photo taken Oct. 25, 2016, a note on top of a bible sits in the drawer saying that Qurans are available for guests along with other holy books at the Trump International Hotel in Washington. Many luxury hotels offer Qurans and holy books from various cultures to accommodate international travelers. Donald Trump has made divisive remarks about Muslims in his presidential campaign, but an air of calm and luxury prevails at the hotel, where Trump appeared Wednesday, Oct. 26, 2016, for a ribbon cutting.

More Evidence The Trump Family Realizes They’re Damaged Goods

Instead of expanding their Trump hotels, they’re going to rebrand. New hotels they roll out will be called Scion Hotels so people will not know they are Trump hotels.

Why?

Reservations at Trump hotels are are in decline.

Bookings at Trump hotels through luxury-travel specialist Ovation Vacations tumbled 29 percent in the past six months, said Jack Ezon, president of the firm. While corporate reservations at Trump Hotels through Altour International Inc. fell 10 percent this year through Oct. 15, leisure bookings rose so much they provided a 16 percent lift overall, said Martin Rapp, senior vice president at the corporate and leisure travel agency, which has a large number of entertainment clients.

Truth be told, the Trump Hotel Chicago is one of my favorite hotels in the world. They are great hotels. But this campaign has ruined the Trump name, at least temporarily. On top of that, demographically Trump supporters probably aren’t going to be staying in the Trump Hotel Central Park.

The family has problems.
