I just bid $50 on Priceline for the room on Valentines day.  Hang on.  Buffering.  Buffering.

™ rejected, PayPal account has not been charged.  I'll make it $60 and see if it goes thru.

It's nothing new.  This suite held the Guinness record  for most expensive hotel room throughout my childhood.
 
2014-01-20 03:19:59 AM  
On the off chance that people are wondering, it's called the Presidential Suite because it's the actual suite used when the POTUS is in town.

/Interviewed for a job there. Actually very cool place, lots of history made there.

I completely agree. Those ritzy places are for the birds. Our first child (I am 99% positive) was conceived in an hourly rate "hotel" in Japan. Which led to that honeymoon. Still married 16 years after the fact, but that stupid "gold star" hotel room still chafes my briefs.

For a guy, it is likely pointless. Maybe those of the female persuasion take it in a different way? I don't dare bring up that topic at the dinner table.

One of the best nights of my life took place in an hourly motel. Waterbed, plastic sheets, multiple 24/7 porn channels, my girlfriend and a bunch of acid. My 21st birthday. It was her idea and it was awesome.

/there's a market for this or it wouldn't be offered

It doesn't have to be profitable. It could be a loss leader or prestige generator. It could exist to justify a $10,000 per night suite without a beehive, what a bargain!

Or it could be a legitimate business fallen on such hard times that the hotel has to resort to buying an ad masquerading as news on CNBC.

If you kept bees in the middle of a large city, they'd have to harvest nectar from within flying distance of the hive.  I'd hate to think what downtown San Francisco honey would actually be made from...

Fairmount Story, all true:

I learned my best business lesson one night in the Laurel restaurant at the Fairmount. We (boutique investment bank) were there to woo a billionaire client. He was straight out of Central Casting. 80 years old, patrician, elegant, all kinds of vitality with a spectacular bombshell show girl on his arm. He emanated an undercurrent of vicious street thug while being courtly. Which was about right since our research hinted at wise-guy connections.

Being the Answewunderkind for the Firm, I was seated next to him. Pleasant evening, great food, good wine, many tales and stories. Then it got down to business which started over coffee with ..

.. he turns to me, the youngest of the Firm and asks, "What's the first rule of business?"
I got this. "To meet the needs of the customer at a profit," I dutifully answer. Right out of the book.
He slaps me.
In public.
Right in front of everyone.
My partners and even the head waiter are so shocked they become like stone statues.
"No," he says. "The first rule of business is to  stay in business."
Dramatic pause, then he laughs, "Got it?" he asks me.

I did. Never forgot the lesson.
We won the account. And the guy never spoke to me again.
But I definitely 'got it'.

That's my Fairmount tale.

If I'm dropping that much cash on a hotel room, you bet your ass I'm going to have sex on every horizontal surface in the joint. Pool table, piano, on a pile of books pulled off the shelves in the library...

Damnit, who has an extra $15k and wants to take me there?
