Fairmont Chicago's Obama-Themed Presidential Suite
Chicago's Fairmont Hotel just re-opened after a $50 million renovation that includes a new 1,850-sq.-ft. top floor Presidential Suite dedicated to the city's own Barack Obama. Overlooking Chicago's Grant Park, where Obama made his historic acceptance speech on the eve of his election as the 44th President of the United States, the plush suite features an "illustrative montage" of Obama's life along with a selection of memorabilia including campaign buttons, newspaper headlines and seals of the various offices he has held throughout his political career.
The Fairmont has created a special package to inaugurate the suite which includes an intimate, chauffeur-driven tour of Obama's favorite spots in Chicago in the hotel's private Bentley Continental Flying Spur (above). The package features roundtrip airport transportation, fresh floral arrangements upon arrival, a fully-stocked butler's pantry, a personal concierge to assist with reservations, museum passes and basketball or baseball tickets, and spa and restaurant credits. The two-night package is available for $8,244 plus tax.
