For G20, Trump Broke The First Rule Of Hotel Reservations - Book Early!
July 6, 2017

Buzzfeed translated the story from the original German (not making that up)

White House officials apparently waited too long to book accommodations for President Trump, leaving him without a hotel in Hamburg, Germany, as world leaders converge for the G20 summit.

Organizers announced the scheduled summit in February 2016, which requires 9,000 hotel rooms to accommodate world leaders, their sizable staffs, and security details.

The Hamburger Abendblatt, a local news outlet, reported that the US government wanted to accommodate Trump in the Four Seasons, but it was already booked. In fact, it turns out that every luxury hotel in Hamburg was reportedly booked by the time the Americans called, leaving Trump, who is associated with an empire of hotel properties, scrambling for a place to stay.

It turned out the city of Hamburg found a place for Trump and part of his delegation to stay -- at the Senate guesthouse.

The rest of the staff will have to stay out of town... aww.
