Would you stay at the Trump International Hotel in Vancouver

In light of this weekend's G7 meetings and Trump's comments about Canada - does this in any way alter your decision to stay at a hotel with his name on it (remember he doesn't actually own the hotel in Vancouver, it just has his branding). Curious to see how people think?

I wouldn't, regardless of the politics. I don't see Mr. Trump as a hotelier and I don't see the Trump brand as carrying weight as a hotel brand vs. Marriott, Hilton, Intercontinental etc. Nothing to do with him as a person or a politician, but if I was picking a 5-star hotel chain to stay at, I'd think of Shangri-La, Ritz Carlton, Four Seasons, etc., not Trump. It's kind of like the Michael Kors watches vs. Omega kind of argument.

God no. Vancouver has 3 Fairmont hotels that I would much rather stay at, including one that is steps from Miku.

Lol. Craving that salmon aburi sushi at Miku!

While I wouldn't discount the Trump hotel (find it better than Four Seasons and Shangri-La), Pac Rim and Hotel Georgia is the place to stay.

I've stayed at a few Trump hotels in the past (not for any particular reason just that they had a decent price and I know the standards are comparable to Ritz/Shangri La/4 Seasons). This was all before he ran for office / got elected. There was nothing "Trump" about the stay didn't think about it once lol

I would stay again.

Have never stayed at a Trump Hotel
For a variety of reasons...
But certainly due to Reviews
As that weighs heavily on what Hotels I do stay at
Lots of unimpressed travellers who have stayed at those properties

If I am going to blow that kind of money on a 5 Star, then there are usually far more historic & iconic places with GREAT Reviews worth exploring be it Chicago, Fort Lauderdale, Honolulu, New York City, Vancouver, Vegas or Washington DC

DEFINITELY TRUE FOR VANCOUVER

At 50-75% off comparable hotels, yes. Otherwise, no.

Nope never. I'm sure if I could afford or want to spend it, there are other comparable alternatives anyway

We stayed at the Trump Hotel in Las Vegas just before the election. It was absolutely fantastic and the service levels were absolutely excellent. Very high standards. I would definitely stay there again.

If I wanted to stay in the area and the price was right, sure.

Do you stop using Twitter because Trump uses it?
Do you stop using Uber because the CEO,Travis Kalanick, is a dick?
What about facebook, because Zuckerberg got caught?
Do you stop using Kraft or Heinz products since their takeover and they layed off all those people?

Point is, just because the leader is a jerk (or worse), the company or people working there are not.
In the 21st Century deleting history has become far more important than making it. Anonymous
