A small crowd of protestors gathered outside of Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C., Monday as it opened for guests for the first time.
One banner read: "We'll build a wall against racism and bigotry."
Code Pink's Medea Benjamin said she opposed the project, not only because of the steep price for a one-night stay, but because the public will now have limited access to the Old Post Office Tower.
"It's appalling that this beautiful post office used to be a place of public domain and is now in the hands of Donald Trump and the one percent," Benjamin told Fox News. "In a city full of immigrants, $700 a night for a room?"
Rooms actually start at $895 per night.
The project transformed the Old Post Office building on Pensylvania Avenue into a luxury hotel.
"The hotel is magnificent. There has never been a hotel like this or even close in Washington," Trump told Fox News.
Trump won a 60-year lease from the government to put the hotel in the 117-year-old building, Fox News reported.
Monday was referred to as the "soft opening." The official grand opening is in October.
