A company is launching the first “politically motivated” hotel, created for liberal activists, in Washington, DC.
The Eaton Workshop Hotel will be opening just north of the National Mall in the Spring 2018, and is being marketed as the “anti-Trump hotel.” The company’s flagship hotel will be just a few blocks from the glamorous and popular Trump International Hotel, but will “focus on community outreach” according to a report from Axios.
When activist guests manage to borrow their parent’s credit cards so that they can check in to the Eaton Workshop, they will be greeted by a highly predictable art installation at the registration desk: vintage televisions replaying footage from the 2012 and 2016 elections. The footage, the artist hopes, will make people ponder “how did our country get where it is today?”
The theme won’t just end at the front desk however, as Bloomberg reports that “the brand will weave a liberal philosophy into every aspect of the guest experience, some more obvious than others.”
The hotel will also feature TED style talks on liberal politics, organic mattresses, political artwork, a podcast, Reiki and sound baths instead of a traditional spa — and a co-working space that will “prioritize memberships for progressive startups, activists, and artists. Essentially, the project sounds like an overpriced hippie commune experience for limousine liberals.
The hotel is the brainchild of Katherine Lo, the daughter of Ka Shui Lo, the creator and executive chairman of Hong Kong-based Langham Hospitality Group Ltd.
“We plan to have new ideas in the minibar—an activist toolkit, for example, that includes sheets with information to help you call your congresspeople. And if we’d been open during this year’s Women’s March, I could have seen us putting poster boards and markers in the rooms!” Lo told Bloomberg.
The cost of renting out one of the hotel’s 209 rooms has not yet been released.
Bill de Blasio Booed off Stage at George Floyd Memorial Event
Even New Yorkers are sick of the left-wing mayor.
New York City mayor Bill de Blasio was roundly booed off stage during an appearance at a George Floyd memorial event on Thursday, with a raucous crowd drowning out the mayor’s remarks with boos and a torrent of profanity.
A Brooklyn pastor tried to encourage the crowd to treat de Blasio with respect, but he was roundly booed anyway.
“Let us welcome, with respect, the mayor of New York City, Bill de Blasio.”

De Blasio continued with his remarks, even though it was clear the crowd at the memorial didn’t want to hear from him. At points he couldn’t even be heard because the booing was so loud.

De Blasio’s as left-wing as they come, but he’s become increasingly unpopular in New York City for his handling of the Floyd race riots, which have surfaced in force in the already coronavirus-stricken city. Some New Yorkers are incensed with the curfew instituted to deter looting, and others are angry with the city’s total inability to deter the looting anyway. Governor Andrew Cuomo has already threatened to override de Blasio’s authority in order to put an end to the mass-scale rioting and looting in the city.
More than 700 rioters were arrested on Monday night alone, and more than 60 NYPD officers had to be hospitalized as a result of injuries sustained in the riots. The police department has increasingly given up on the prospect of restoring law and order in New York City, frustrated by de Blasio’s continual refusal to allow law enforcement to actually stop the widespread riots.
