Want to spend New Year's Eve in San Diego, California? You can celebrate in a big way at the Porto Vista Hotel in the Little Italy area. One night at the hotel is being auctioned off on eBay. The winner of the auction will have control of the entire hotel from noon on December 31, 2010 through noon on January 1, 2011.
The auction includes not just the hotel's 189 rooms and VIP suites but also the services of the Glass Door Restaurant with personal chef and customized menu for a meal for up to 50 VIP guests as well as a party on the Ripassi rooftop deck for 300 guests with a DJ, personalized menu, open bar and private luxury cabanas. The entire hotel staff will be at your disposal.
The "owner for a day" will also have his or her name displayed along the side of the hotel, receive customized business cards and employee uniforms will feature the owner's name. The package also comes with a personalized Web site landing page for guest reservations for New Year's Eve. The bidding ends November 26. Last time I looked there were no bids but the auction does have a Buy-It-Now price of $160,000.
