Unfortunately, you can’t just go and book a room for the night at the Mar-a-Lago Hotel. You must be a member, and membership isn’t cheap. Just to get in, you need to spend a whopping $200,000. Along with that, your request also needs to be accepted by the committee. In addition, you have to pay almost $15,000 every year to remain a member. But for that price, you get to hang out with celebrities, sports stars, and now, the former President.
Want to get in cheaper? On certain charity event nights, you don’t have to be a member to enter the club. However, the donation expectations are extremely high.
Once you are a member of Mar-a-Lago, you can’t just hang out for free. You would need to spend money to relish everything in the resort. Staying overnight at the hotel can cost several thousand dollars, depending on the room size. The room rates aren’t cheap: other high-end hotels nearby can start at $1000 a night and go up to $5000 or more for a basic suite.
The rates for membership aren’t surprising given the value of Mar-a-Lago. According to Fortune, the club is worth around $200 Million. Trump bought it in 1985 for a tiny fraction of that.
The building stretches itself over 100,000 ft. It is placed in some of the most expensive prime real estate in the United States. Now, Donald Trump’s name is associated with the resort, so more and more people want to jump in, which will ultimately increase the overall cost.
