This year's contentious presidential election may be affecting Donald Trump's hotel business, the Boston Globe reported.

Booking site Hipmunk reported that its reservations for Trump hotels are down nearly 60 percent over this time last year, the Globe said, while a survey of more than 2,000 Americans by travel trend tracking website Skift found 56.9 percent of respondents said they were less likely to stay in a Trump hotel because of his campaign.

"We don't ask what political party our employees or guests belong to,'' Mickael Damelincourt, managing director of the Trump International Washington location, said in the Globe article. "What I do know is that our bookings are strong."

Indeed, experts told the Globe, Trump supporters might seek out the Republican nominee's properties as a show of support. After all, Trump Hotels are highly rated in industry publications like Travel + Leisure magazine's annual World's Best Awards, the Globe reports.

CNBC has reached out for the Trump campaign for comment.
