Vancouver’s Trump Champagne Lounge is Turning Into a ‘Total Shithole’ on Yelp

Over the weekend I read a news story on how people were turning to Yelp to voice their fury over the recent “shithole” comments attributed to US President Donald Trump (context).

These especially motivated Yelpers began targeting Trump hotels around the world this past weekend by giving them “shithole” reviews. They very quickly managed to reduce, for example, the rating of Trump’s new hotel in Washington, DC to just 2 stars.

This got me thinking about the new Trump Tower and its signature Champagne Lounge right here in Vancouver. I don’t think it had a great rating to begin with (several bad reviews that predate shithole-gate), but these latest entries can’t be very helpful…

  1. “I don’t like the way Trump talks so I’m going to talk like Trump.”

    Trumps detractors aren’t really above all that, are they? LMAO

  2. Glad to see Scout Magazine encouraging readers to place fake Yelp reviews. That should really help the industry.

    Seriously?

  3. From what I see, the Trump Protesters have never stayed in a luxury hotel or taken a bath.

It has been estimated that over 100,000 people attended the Climate March this past Friday. It felt like a hell of a lot more.

While it's clear the intention was to restore the facade to its former glory, many will undoubtedly miss its faded and rusted patina.
