Obama Slept Here: 6 Truly Presidential Hotel Suites
As campaign season amps up, President Obama is about to become the Road Warrior in Chief. Not surprisingly, the man has checked into a wide range of presidential suites: from the Ritz-Carlton in Moscow to the Tata Suite at Taj Mahal Palace in India. While you may never have a corner office at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, you can live large like the President by laying your head where he has. Here's a list of some of the chief executive's homes away from home—places where you, too, can check in, sans Secret Service detail, and soak up the Obama aura.
During a diplomatic trip to Russia in the summer of 2009, the President and his family checked into the tony Ritz-Carlton, Moscow. At the time, this five-room suite—with stunning Kremlin views seen through floor-to-ceiling windows—went for $13,000 a night. The coolest detail? Pravda reported that "There is a special room in the bathroom, where the US president will be able to enjoy a tropic shower." (We think they mean tropical shower.) A nice touch during those nippy Russian winters. Other amenities include a grand piano, Russian imperial-style furniture, a library, a sauna, and Acqua di Parma toiletries.
Room rate: $16,800 per night
