Has Trump done anything in the last 30 years that didn't involve Russians or the Mafia?

Is this how things normally work? Someone builds a hotel and different "management companies" come in and bid for the right to run it? I always assumed Hilton or Embassy or whomever built their own hotels.

Generally you get a brand separate from the hotel owner.  They get the perks of the brand (advertising, guest rewards, etc) but also have to maintain brand standards.

I used to provide business centers, WiFi, etc to hotels.  Most aren't owned by the brand.  There are exceptions, like the Marriott San Diego Hotel and Marina (it used to be, might not be anymore), but most aren't owned by the brand just like most over the air TV stations aren't owned by ABC, NBC, CBS, or Fox.

Cool, thanks, just one of those things I never had any insight into. Unknown unknowns and all that.

I'd imagine they are like any other franchise. You can definitely tell the difference between a Marriott that was built to be a Marriott for example, and one that started as something else. I'd imagine the owners generally buy into the franchise before they start building.

Some are more strict than others about that.  Many chains have a basic architectural blueprint.  My city had two Holiday Inns with the old school Holidome and then Holiday Inn rebranded to only unified multi story buildings and they got kicked out.  Both are now Clarion with one having a short stint as a Best Western.

In other news, Trump's new Washington DC flagship hotel at the Old Post Office, just down the street from the White House, conveniently placed for royal cronies and humble petitioners alike made $20 million in profits.  His Florida golfing revenues dropped and the royalties from TV shows were down quite spectacularly.

Many of his other properties remain profitable however. His chain of cheap hotel and motel rooms for Trumpers is likely to be very profitable seeing as every moron in the country will be staying there to share the guilt, er, I mean the gelt, the gilt, the green eyeglasses of Trumpery. Pay no attention to the fat orange man behind the curtain. Jebus! His ass is Yuge!

In a declaration of his assets he had debts of $315 million owned largely by the one bank in America and Old Europe that will still loan him money and he listed assets (using a range of possible values) worth up to $1.4 billion, substantially short of the imaginary net worth in his head of $10 billion, including his "brand" and his gigantic ego.

The take-away from this is that

THERE IS NO FECKING WAY THAT A BILLIONAIRE POLITICIAN CAN AVOID CONFLICTS OF INTEREST, SELF-ENRICHING AND SELF-DEALING AND VIOLATING THE EMOLUMENTS CLAUSE OF THE CONSTITUTION.

So those Democrats in Congress are on some pretty solid ground whilst suing his fat orange ass off.

When doing business with the US Government you are doing business with President Trump and his minions and flunkies, so it only makes sense to stay at a Trump hotel.

Occupants of the Presidential Suite get free legislation of their choice, I mean free mints on their pillows!

Other chumps get Trump Dump prices for tap water and over-cooked beef. Ketchup on every table!

Brand for the classes, screw the masses with cheap knock-offs made in China!

It is how celebrities make their real money since there is no more money to squeeze out of the movies, sports and TV.

Merchandizing, merchanding, merchandizing!

Intellectual property rights and royalties are dead.

I just mentioned him so that there would be something I like and admire in this post, namely the author of Humbugs of the World

Anything would be an improvement.

Hope that building burns down. fark Trump, I don't want anything with his name in my entire country.
