Where Is Kim Jong Un Staying in Singapore? U.S. Company Offers to Pay His Hotel During Summit With Trump

The venue for the historic summit between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un was announced Wednesday as Capella Hotel on Sentosa Island, but with the meeting six days away, where Kim will stay and the big question of who will pay for it remains unanswered.

Kim and Trump, whose accommodations also have not been revealed, are likely to stay at separate hotels other than Capella Hotel, according to diplomats. For his part, Kim reportedly wants to stay at the Fullerton Hotel, which has a more than $6,000 per night presidential suite, and not pay for it, leaving American officials to figure out how to waive sanctions prohibiting the U.S. from covering the costs, or see if Singapore can pick up the tab.

Following the reports of the payment issue on Friday, Tim Hentschel, co-founder and CEO of HotelPlanner.com, an online group travel website that often works with government officials, extended an offer to cover Kim's lodging of choice from the site, as well as his meals.

Hentschel told Newsweek that his company, based in West Palm Beach, Florida, on Monday faxed a letter with the offer to North Korea through the country's embassy in China. "We're just waiting to hear back," he said.

He added that he spoke with an official at U.S. Department of Commerce's Office of Travel and Tourism Industries. "They're just excited; if we can make it happen, it's great," Hentschel said.

While the Fullerton is not on the list of 11 hotels that HotelPlanner.com is offering Kim, Hentschel said he does not have a dollar amount cap and, "I mean, who doesn't want world peace, right?"

"He should go with the hotels on our list. We're used to working with dignitaries, anybody who demands high-level privacy and security," Hentschel said. "We will definitely make sure he gets the best room the hotel has to offer."

The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Newsweek on Wednesday.

Trump reportedly wants to stay at the Shangri-La Hotel, where a suite in the Valley Wing costs about $7,471 on June 12.
