The Trump SoHo New York will no longer be as it has rebranded as The Dominick. President Donald Trump's company agreed to remove the Trump name from the Lower Manhattan hotel and give up management of the property last month, according to The New York Times.
Reports say the two sides decided to sever its contract years early after room rates dropped, condominiums became increasingly difficult to sell and that the property's sushi restaurant closed. As with many other Trump-branded properties, the company did not own the hotel but managed the day-to-day operations.
According the same New York Times article, "The Trump Organization is entitled to a portion of the hotel’s revenue, although the contract requires the Trumps to pay the owner, CIM Group, if the property fails to meet certain financial performance standards. Since there are still years remaining on the contract, CIM will pay the Trumps to end the arrangement early."
This marks the second hotel this year that has dropped the Trump name after the Trump Toronto did so back in June (it now goes by The Adelaide Hotel Toronto). The Trump International Hotel & Tower near Columbus Circle in New York remains open, however.
As part of the announcement, The Dominick also says it has become the third hotel in New York City to be accepted into Preferred Hotels & Resorts’ Legend Collection.
