Take a look inside Donald Trump's new $200 million hotel in Washington, DC



September 12 marked the soft opening of the latest hotel in Donald Trump's empire: the Trump International Hotel in Washington, DC. The hotel is located inside the Old Post Office Pavilion, which dates back to 1899 and required $200 million in renovations.

Although the Boston Globe has reported that Trump hotel reservations are down nearly 60% compared to this time last year, the DC location stayed on track to open ahead of schedule— however, it wasn't without a few hiccups. A group of protesters gathered outside during the soft opening Monday. Earlier this year, celebrity chefs José Andrés and Geoffrey Zakarian both backed out of their agreement to oversee restaurants inside the hotel, citing the GOP presidential nominee's inflammatory comments on immigration.

In honor of the opening, let's take a look inside the hotel.

The hotel is located near the corner of Pennsylvania Avenue and 12th Street, just a short 15-minute walk to The White House North Lawn.

The atrium of the Trump International Hotel, which hosts the largest ballroom in Washington, DC, was named the "Presidential Ballroom."

Crystal chandeliers hang in the lobby.
