MIAMI (CBSMiami) — It was all smiles and a family affair Tuesday at the Trump Doral where Donald Trump got the key to the city of Doral just before an official ribbon cutting ceremony.

Donald was joined by three of his children: daughter Ivanka, sons Donald Junior and Eric along with the legendary golfer Arnold Palmer for the opening of the Arnold Palmer Villas. All this as the World Golf Cadillac Championship tees up to begin.

The interiors of all of the eight villas on premises were designed by Ivanka.

“So this is the Presidential Suite. It’s 5,000 square feet with a beautiful master suite and a six fixture bathroom,” said Ivanka to CB4’s Lisa Petrillo while giving her the grand tour.

The new deluxe guest rooms are adorned in elegant neutrals, accentuated with mahogany and gold leaf Spanish revival details.

“There are eight villas in all and each one is named after a particular world class golfer. The art work inside reflects that,” she said. “That’s how we build. We build like it’s our own home.”

Ivanka is a busy working mom of two small children who, in addition to owning her own clothing line and working with her father, she’s also launched a new online initiative, celebrating #womenwhowork and how they find balance.

“I found that pop culture wasn’t speaking to us in a very authentic way about what it means to be a women who works. It just hasn’t been representative of how women are working today so we started a conversation,” Ivanka explained.

Ivanka also keeps her fingers on the pulse of real estate.

“Miami is incredible. It’s on fire. We have a hotel now which is the ultimate test where rooms are priced on a daily basis. It’s amazing to see the demand come into Miami from all over the world,” she said.

Thursday night, during the the Cadillac Championship Ivanka will host a fashion show by Dolce and Gabbana to give sizzle to the four day event.
“Here we are in heart of Miami so we’re looking to embrace that after golf is over, we can have fun in the evenings,” she said.

The Cadillac Championship is on through Sunday. For more info on Ivanka : www.ivankatrump.com
