With Election Day coming next Tuesday, we’re soon to find out if it’s going to be President Trump or President Clinton (part II) in the White House. And early next year on Inauguration Day, most will see the president-elect sworn in live on TV (or online) in the bitter cold.
You, on the other hand, could be watching it all go down live from the warmth of your presidential suite at the W Hotel in Washington, D.C., overlooking landmarks like the White House and the presidential parade route.
The hotel is offering an exclusive Inauguration Day package, which will get you closer than the average gawker to the day’s historic events. For $500,000, you and 250 guests will be able to basically “own” the hotel for a few nights, Willy Wonka–style, with a private black-tie ball on inauguration night.
Besides the big inauguration night event, the package deal also includes a three-night stay in the hotel’s 1,176-square-foot presidential suite (with 24/7 on-call service and a 12-person dining room); first-class roundtrip airfare to Reagan International Airport from anywhere in the States (as well as on-call transportation throughout the stay); a private shopping trip to Saks Fifth Avenue to get your ball attire just right; and a $1,000 in-room spa deal to get you looking like a baller for the ball.
The deal also includes an unlimited supply of Veuve Cliquot champagne; a curated chef’s tasting menu from high-end Italian restaurant Pinea; a reserved VIP table at the hotel’s POV Lounge, with your own personal mixologist on hand for your entire stay; reserved front-row seating at either the restaurant or lounge the day of the presidential parade; and a private history lesson on past presidential inaugurations.
