Since opening in 2016, the Trump International Hotel in Washington has played a supporting role in the nation’s political drama, hosting lobbyists, right-wing media figures and others trying to win favor with the U.S. president.

Now the property, whose grand design and proximity to the White House stand out among the city’s luxury hotels, is entering the post-Trump presidential era with the Biden administration as its new landlord and questions about its future.
