Trump hotel and resort properties saw mixed income fortunes in 2019
At some properties, revenue was a little higher than in 2018 — including his most successful, the Trump National Doral golf resort in Miami, which took in $77.2 million compared to just under $76 million earned in 2018, Politico reported.
The president’s golf club in Bedminister, NJ, where he frequently spends summer weekends, reported a 13 percent increase; his clubs in Jupiter, Fla. and Charlotte, N.C. also saw jumps in revenue last year.
Revenue stayed essentially the same at the Trump International Hotel in Washington, at $40.5 million compared to $40.8 million the previous year.
But at Mar-a-Lago, the so-called Winter White House, revenue dipped to $21.4 million, a 5 percent drop from the $22.6 million the property earned in 2018.
The revenues don’t reflect the big hit that the hotel and resort industry sustained this year due to the coronavirus pandemic.
