You know how sometimes you stay in a hotel and you might bump in to someone who thinks differently than you? If you are traveling to DC, you won’t have to worry about that anymore! Since leftists want to politicize everything (see BuzzFeed Trashes Taylor Swift… For Being Too White? and NFL Players Demand League-Wide ‘Social Justice Month’), why not lodging too? Welcome to the Eaton Workshop, set to open in 2018. The world’s first bitterly partisan hotel. Yes, really.
In Trump’s Washington, Eaton is planting a clear flag as a haven for Democrats. It’s the world’s first politically motivated hotel, the flagship for a global brand that’s built around social activism and community engagement. And it comes with a pedigree: As the daughter of Ka Shui Lo, the creator and executive chairman of Hong Kong-based Langham Hospitality Group Ltd., founder Katherine Lo knows a thing or two about luxury hotels and world-class service.
This is my favorite part.
A guest who does nothing other than check in, sleep atop Eaton’s organic mattresses, and check out will still have a sense of the hotel’s mission, says Lo. “We plan to have new ideas in the minibar—an activist toolkit, for example, that includes sheets with information to help you call your congresspeople. And if we’d been open during this year’s Women’s March, I could have seen us putting poster boards and markers in the rooms!”
Political statements such as these will be tailored to each property. In Hong Kong, for instance, Lo says she’d like to replace Bibles in the nightstand drawers with copies of the United Nations Declaration for Human Rights.
The only problem here? The target market doesn’t seem to be in the business of having jobs. Mayhaps they’re planning to give out free night stays in the name of equality.
Open in 2018. Closed by 2019.
