Obama Stays At Hotel In Foreclosure
President Obama changed things up when it came to his first hotel stay in Arizona. Presidents traditionally stay at the Arizona Biltmore Resort and Spa in Phoenix at least once while visiting the Valley but Obama chose the new InterContinental Montelucia Resort and Spa in Paradise Valley, a resort that just happens to be already facing foreclosure. The Arizona Republic says that the resort was fully booked Tuesday night with Obama's entourage and other guests. There are two presidential suites which cost $3,000 to $4,000 per night. The Biltmore also has two presidential suites, It was also the site of John McCain's election-night concession speech. While the McCains live within walking distance of the Biltmore they were also at the Montelucia on Tuesday for a fundraiser.
