Denver doesn’t seem to be a priority for new Trump hotels

Trump Hotels has indicated that they hope to expand to every major metro in the U.S. — including Denver. But Eric and Donald Trump Jr. didn’t name-check our city when speaking to the New York Times about the business.

Also worth noting — even if the company makes its way to Denver, it doesn’t mean a building with the Trump name emblazoned on it. The expansion is for a sub-brand of Trump Hotels: Scion, the budget brother of the brand.

Eric Trump said they hope to expand Scion to “large to midsize ‘trendy’ cities like Austin, Tex., Charlotte, N.C., and Nashville.” But Dallas seems a bit more likely to be first up, according to the NYT:

“One of the first Scion locations, Eric said, could be Dallas, where the brothers and their executive team are evaluating possible sites. They are in talks with a possible partner, Mukemmel Sarimsakci, a developer based in Texas who had previously considered projects with the Trump Organization in Iraq and Turkey, where he was born.”
