A Miami-based investment firm, CGI Merchant Group, will acquire the lease for the Trump International Hotel.  

The hotel is located a short walk down Pennsylvania Avenue from the White House. The new owners intend to remove the Trump name. It has also reached a deal with Hilton Worldwide Holdings Inc. to get the property branded and managed by Hilton’s Waldorf Astoria group, said sources.  

The hotel is owned by the federal government, but its lease runs close to 100 years. The hotel has some largest guest rooms in the capital and housed in the former Old Post Office.
