Trump Organization's executive vice president of development and acquisitions,
Ivanka Trump is responsible for everything from financing to interior design for
her family’s namesake hotel collection, including Trump
Soho, which features the city’s only luxury hammam. “The tiles, the
stones and the colors all reflect a mix of New World sophistication with
traditional Middle Eastern elements,” she says. But the 29-year-old’s
entrepreneurial reach extends far beyond her corporate office in Trump Tower. In
2007 she launched the Ivanka Trump Fine Jewelry collection, followed by design
partnerships for footwear and handbag lines. And that’s on top of appearing on Celebrity Apprentice;
publishing her first book, The
Trump Card: Playing to Win in Work and Life; volunteering with the
UN Foundation’s Girl Up Initiative, a program designed to increase awareness
about adolescent girls in developing countries; and giving birth to daughter
Arabella Rose this past July, with her husband, publishing magnate Jared
Kushner. Trump Soho, 246 Spring
sets the Trump Soho apart from other Trump properties?
Sophistication, quality and luxury are the cornerstones of the Trump brand. At
Trump Soho, we envisioned a modern translation of these concepts, which we felt
was more fitting to the downtown market. The property was designed by Handel
Architects with interiors by the Rockwell Group and custom furnishings by Fendi
Casa; three top tier brand which are a great fit with both the contemporary feel
of the hotel and the elegance of the Trump brand.

seems like quite a coincidence that Trump Hotel Collection just announced a
“Babymoon” package. Did your pregnancy come into play when creating this
entirely a coincidence! As you can imagine, pregnancy has been on my mind for a
while now. It's one thing to be in the comfort of your own home, but it can be a
challenge while traveling. I wanted our hotels to take those extra measures that
make a woman feel special and comfortable, such as special pillows, prenatal spa
treatments, and fresh, healthy beverage choices, all of which are included in
our Babymoon Package.
