Ivanka Trump, the daughter of a real estate developer named Donald, gave the Little Nell hotel in Aspen a bit of a shout-out in today’s Wall Street Journal.
Trump, 31, the vice president and development and acquisitions at the Trump Organization, said as child, one of her favorite hotels was the Little Nell, “where we’d stay during family ski trips.”
When she was five-years-old in 1986, her father tried to build the Trump Palace hotel in Aspen, but in a complicated deal was out-bid at the 11th hour by another real estate developer, Mohamad Hadid, who bought 88 acres of prime Aspen real estate out of foreclosure, some of which Trump had his eye on.
Later, Trump floated a couple of deals in downtown Denver, including what would have been the tallest building in downtown and a hotel-condo project near the Denver Union Station, but they never got off the ground.
