Win or lose the 2016 election, Donald Trump is guaranteed to have some prime real estate in Washington, DC next year—on Pennsylvania Avenue, no less. In September, the people’s billionaire will open the Trump International Hotel (two years ahead of schedule) in the historic Old Post Office building just a few blocks from the White House.

Not only will it have a Presidential Ballroom (at 13,200 square feet, it’ll be the largest luxury ballroom in the nation’s capital) but the 263-room hotel will also offer three Presidential Suites, the largest of which measures 6,300 square feet—roughly eight times the size of the Oval Office.
