Last updated on: February 20, 2020 09:38 IST

It's not the Trump Taj Mahal -- the Atlantic City casino that the US President Donald Trump -- built for $1.2 billion in 1990, but it will be where Trump and US First Lady Melania Trump will stay during their two-day India visit. 

Welcome to the ITC Maurya hotel at Chanakyapuri in New Delhi. During their trip, the Trumps will be booked into the Grand Presidential Suite on the 14th floor of the opulent hotel.

Trump will be the fourth US president to stay at the ITC Maurya in the recent past. US president Barack Obama, Bill Clinton and George W Bush also chose the same facility.

Here’s a glimpse of their home away from home.

The Grand Presidential is a mini mansion with grand opulent interiors. The mansion boasts of silk panelled walls, dark wood flooring and magnificent artwork. The suite comprises of a reception area, a large living room, a study, a peacock themed 12 seater private dining room, an opulent bathroom with mother of pearl accessories and a mini spa and a gymnasium.

The Trumps will be waited on hand and foot by the presidential floor butler who will ensure that the US First Couple's every wish is fulfilled.

The US First Couple will be provided with their own private chef and will be provided with any kind of cuisine or food they want. An assortment of baked delicacies, personalised with a collage of photographs of the couple, is likely to await them in their Presidential Suite.

The Chanakya Suite spans 4,600 sq ft, costs around ₹8 lakh a night, and includes steam and sauna areas in addition to living quarters. The Tyeb Mehta paintings and illustrations from the Arthashastra on the wall lend the traditional touch while the Villeroy and Boch crockery and Cristal De Paris glassware add a touch of global luxury.

What we would give to just soak ourself in this luxurious bathroom which is in the Grand Presidential suite.
