President Donald Trump won’t be staying at a luxury hotel in Hamburg, Germany, for the G-20 summit.
White House staff members waited too long to book a room for the president, reports say. By the time they started inquiring about availability at Hamburg hotels, all rooms were booked.
Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin are among those attending the summit hosted by German Chancellor Angela Merkel.
Trump is known in part for his luxury hotels in the U.S. and around the world, but that apparently didn’t help in his quest for a room in Hamburg.
