The “Magic Wallet” is open again.
President Barack Obama, British Prime Minister David Cameron and Russian Premier Vladimir Putin, among others, will all be attending the G-20 summit in Brisbane, Australia, this weekend.
Guess whose stay will cost the most? (hint: 1 Australian dollar = 0.86 U.S. dollars)
For a mere $2,175 per night, Obama will enjoy the presidential suite on the top floor, with a king-size bed and approximately 1,400 square feet of living space. To put that into perspective, according to Aparment Guide Blog, the current average apartment in the United States is only 982 square feet.
While we would like to think he would not have much time to sit around looking out the window, Obama’s suite will provide panoramic views of the Brisbane River. To further enhance his enjoyment and to be sure we are getting our money’s worth, Obama will have elegant marble bathrooms, indulgent bedding, complimentary hors d’oeuvres and dessert, along with complimentary non-alcoholic beverages.
Just in case our president needs a little additional relaxation during the summit, he can have an “unrivalled” spa experience at the award-winning Dome Spa Retreat in the hotel.
Neither our stressed economy nor Obama’s recent electoral humiliation seems to have interfered with the magic wallet’s ability to stay replenished and satisfy Obama’s appetite for luxury.
