Jefferies, the investment bank, has changed its projection for two hospitality-facing REITs, upgrading both to buy, as the vaccine news means people could be spending more time in hotels soon. At the same time, Jefferies downgraded SHO, Sunstone Hotel Investors, to hold, and maintained HST, Host Hotels & Resorts, at buy, and HT, Hersha Hospitality Trus, at hold. These are PK, Park Hotels & Resorts, and XHR, Xenia Hotels & Resorts. In addition to upgrading PK and XHR to buy, Jefferies reconsidered its stance on SHO, Sunstone Hotel Investors, downgrading it to hold. Two unchanged recommendations were for HST, Host Hotels & Resorts, at buy, and HT, Hersha Hospitality Trust, at hold.

Ivanka Trump responded to news that she had been deposed on Tuesday in connection to a lawsuit that accuses President Donald Trump's inauguration committee of misusing its funds. Typically, part of the presidents' inauguration committee funds comes from private donations, while the rest is paid by the taxpayer. On Thursday, Ivanka tweeted that the lawsuit is "another politically motivated demonstration of vindictiveness & waste of taxpayer dollars."

Some of my favorite bars happen to be hotel bars, from lobby lounges with moody lighting and plush seating to oceanfront watering holes where I can imbibe while watching the waves in the distance. Hotel bars typically serve inventive concoctions that are chef-designed. I've been known to ask hotel bartenders for their recipes on the spot if I find a particularly spectacular signature drink. Follow my lead and relive favorite hotel memories by making an exceptional hotel drink yourself. Maybe you'll even be inspired to visit one of these hotel bars in the future to try the real deal firsthand.

“Some days I find a small job, and I earn about 40 euros, 30 euros, 50 euros and I go out. When I find these jobs, I pay for a hotel, which costs 30 euros, to spend the night. But I can’t do this all my life.”At the Hotel Avenir Montmartre, the cost of his room is covered by the charity. Residents receive three meals a day in the hotel’s breakfast room, and each room has a television and an en suite shower room. For the charity, the hotel provides a safe base from which they can try to help rebuild residents’ lives.

(Reuters) - Ivanka Trump, the president’s daughter and adviser, was questioned under oath this week as part of a civil lawsuit alleging misuse of nonprofit funds for Donald Trump’s inauguration four years ago. FILE PHOTO: White House Senior Adviser Ivanka Trump speaks during a campaign event for U.S. President Donald Trump, not pictured, in Dallas, North Carolina, U.S., October 1, 2020. In a January 2020 lawsuit, Racine claimed Donald Trump’s real estate business and other entities misused nonprofit funds to enrich the Trump family. Although campaign finance laws restrict the size of campaign contributions, inauguration committees can accept unlimited donations, including from corporations. Former Trump campaign aide Richard Gates served as deputy chairman of the inaugural committee.

The Newest Hotel Amenity? Virus-Scrubbed Air

But with the approach of cold weather, HVAC contractors installed an air purification system that uses UV light and ionized hydrogen peroxide in most public areas of the hotel, including the indoor restaurant and meeting rooms. Spa treatment rooms each have their own portable air purification systems. “The air being recirculated in your room is your air.”But many hotels are bringing units into the guest rooms for extra assurance. Decisions about installing air purification systems tend to happen at the property or ownership level, rather than the brand level. Many hotels have long offered allergy-free or wellness rooms to travelers that feature heightened purification systems.

Butler Hospitality is a New York startup that creates "ghost kitchens" to supply neighborhood hotels with room service. However, as hotels look to cut costs, Butler could have an opportunity in helping hotels to offer room service in a more efficient way. Butler Hospitality, founded by Tim Gjonbalic in 2016, aims to help hotels make the room-service financials work better by creating "ghost kitchens" inside underutilized hotel kitchens. But adapting the model to a hotel's food and beverage program is a unique concept. In July, Butler Hospitality raised a $15 million Series A funding round with contributions from &vest, Scopus Ventures, Kraft Group, Mousse Partners, and

Ivanka Trump arrives to introduce her father, US President Donald Trump during a "Make America Great Again" rally at Total Sports Park on November 1, 2020, in Washington, Michigan. Last January, AG Karl Racine announced he was suing the Trump Inaugural Committee, The Trump Organization and the Trump International Hotel "for blatantly and unlawfully abusing nonprofit funds to enrich the Trump family." "This came as a result of coordination between Inaugural Committee Deputy Chairman Rick Gates, Trump International Hotel management, and members of the Trump family." "This week spent 5+ hours in a deposition with the Democrat D.C. AG's office where they questioned the rates charged by the Trump Hotel at the inauguration," Ivanka Trump griped in her tweet Thursday. Garten and a White House spokesman did not immediately respond to a request for comment from CNBC on Thursday about Ivanka Trump's tweet.

REUTERS/Ammar AwadJERUSALEM (Reuters) - Israel foresees $220 million in non-defence trade with Bahrain in 2021, the Economy Ministry said on Wednesday as it hosted a delegation from the Gulf state to cement newly established ties. Bahrain and neighbour the United Arab Emirates normalised relations with Israel on Sept. 15, a U.S.-brokered pact motivated by business prospects as well as shared worries about Iran. The Economy Ministry trade forecast anticipated growth in Israeli exports to Bahrain of diamonds and refined metals for chemicals, and of imports of oil and aluminium from Bahrain. Israel does not publish country-specific defence export data.

The Battery Maritime Building is the last of New York City’s old East River ferry terminals: a beaux-arts building with the iron-and-glass look of 19th-century Paris expos, studded with rivets the size of macarons. After the structure’s completion in 1909, Brooklyn-bound commuters gathered there over the course of three decades until bridges and tunnels rendered ferry service somewhat obsolete. (In fact, public ferries to and from Governors Island continue to dock at the building’s slips.) It was earmarked for preservation status in the second half of the 20th century, then subjected to a series of failed development...

The data shows:Over 25 PPP loans worth more than $3.65 million were given to businesses with addresses at Trump and Kushner real estate properties, paying rent to those owners. There were also some troubling signs of mismanagement revealed in Tuesday evening’s data release. Original intentThe PPP programs’ original stated intent by officials was to help with payroll for small businesses struggling under the effects of coronavirus lockdown measures. “SBA’s historically successful COVID relief loan programs have helped millions of small businesses and tens of millions of American workers when they needed it most,” an SBA spokesman said in a statement accompanying the release. “Americans deserved an open, transparent small business aid program when this pandemic started, and any new small business relief program must take a lesson from the abject failures of this one.”

Enter the Justice Department, which in a court document released on Tuesday acknowledged a probe into an alleged presidential pardon "bribery conspiracy scheme." President-elect Joe Biden has expressed a desire to move beyond the Trump era, but the Department of Justice and officials in New York state may have other plans. All the while, Trump has denied wrongdoing, and he remained typically defiant Tuesday as news of a federal pardon probe broke. The White House and Justice Department did not respond Wednesday to requests for comment. Meanwhile, the Justice Department, led by Attorney General Bill Barr, has also taken recent action that favors Trump.

A dispute over loud music ended with a 47-year-old Oregon man fatally shooting a Black teenager in a hotel parking lot just days before Thanksgiving, police said. Aidan Ellison, 19, was staying at the hotel with his friend Sara Jones and her cousin when the young man couldn't sleep that night. "I gave Aidan my car keys to listen to music," Jones, 35, told NBC News on Monday. While the deadly dispute may have started over loud music, Ashland Police Chief Tighe O'Meara said in a statement that this tragedy is "100%" the fault of suspect Robert Paul Keegan. The chief added: "Yes, there was an argument over music, no, this did not happen because of loud music, it happened because the suspect chose to bring a gun with him and chose to use it."

Merkel and state premiers agreed last week that some partial easing of the lockdown would be allowed to allow families some low-key Christmas celebrations. Meeting participants told Reuters she saw this as particularly risky in large cities and in regions with high infection numbers. Despite Merkel’s comments, however, the regional leaders have the final say on what happens in their states under Germany’s federal structure. “People have to show discipline,” economy minister Peter Altmaier, the architect of the economic response to the pandemic told Deutschlandfunk radio. “We have to do more to reduce social contacts.”Altmaier added that pandemic aid for companies could not be extended indefinitely.

The six faded letters are all that remain, and few people notice them. I would never have seen them if a friend hadn’t pointed them out to me while we walked through New Orleans’s French Quarter. I certainly wouldn’t have realized their significance. On Chartres Street, above a beautifully arched doorway, is a curious and enigmatic inscription: “CHANGE.” Now part of the facade of the Omni Royal Orleans Hotel, the letters mark the onetime site of the St. Louis Hotel & Exchange, where, under the building’s famed rotunda, enslaved people were once sold.
