If you want to be among the first to experience the exclusive accommodations and amenities for which Trump hotels are renowned, you’re in luck — it’s not too late to book a room for opening night. The hotel’s online reservation service this evening showed a wide selection of suites still available, with prices ranging from as low as $375 per night for a superior double or a superior king to as high as $1,335 for a deluxe king two-bedroom suite.  But you might have to wait a few weeks to sample Executive Chef Todd Clarmo’s cuisine at Stock — the online booking service showed 9.30 p.m. on Sunday February 19 as the earliest date a table for two can be reserved.

Until I win the lottery, I’ll have to content myself with merely observing the world’s newest Trump tower. Below are some photos that I shot at various times during January, showing the hotel and condo tower exterior. There also are links to online albums with hundreds of photos chronicling construction of the Trump Toronto, as well as brief videoclips of the tower exterior. For those who are interested in seeing what’s inside the skyscraper, the Trump International Hotel + Tower Toronto website has plenty of artistic renderings and photos of the swank interior.
