Trump’s SoHo hotel plans big layoffs after corporate bookings plummet by more than half

President Donald Trump’s hotel in SoHo is planning a big round of layoffs due to a massive drop off in bookings since the 2016 presidential election.

WNYC reports that Trump SoHo in lower Manhattan is expected to lay off 15% of its housekeeping staff while eliminating turndown service for guest rooms.

The hotel has also slashed prices in a bid to attract more guests, as WNYC points out some of its rooms are now going for $400 a night, whereas they used to go for $700 a night before Trump’s election.
