What's the number one wish for hotel guests? For plenty it may be a room with a view. But since Donald Trump entered politics, that request has taken a twist in some cities. In places where hotels overlook buildings emblazoned with the name of the real estate developer who will be the next president, some guests now prefer a room without a view.
Chris Skrapits, a teacher from Portland, Oregon, and his partner Adam Clayton, were none too pleased when they saw the view from their room on the 28th floor of the Venetian in Las Vegas last fall, Skrapits told NBC News. He and Clayton traveled there to get married right after the election.
"We woke up on November 9 just gutted," he said. "We were planning to get married in July and decided, 'Let's get married this weekend. Let's be as married as we can be, as long as we can be, starting now.'" The couple opted to elope to Las Vegas.
"As soon as we opened up the drapes [we saw] the front of Trump's building and we're like 'Oh, no way,'" he said. "The letters across the top of the tower are just huge. It was a bitter irony that we were running away from him and he was right there."
