Obama checks into 4 bedroom, $7000/night suite
Want to sleep like the leader of the free world? Then be prepared to shell out $7,000 a night for the presidential suite at New York's Waldorf Astoria hotel.

Elite Traveler Magazine compiled a list of 101 luxury hotel and resort suites.

President Obama checked in this week, becoming the latest world leader to stay in the four-bedroom suite. In fact, every U.S. president since Herbert Hoover has either stayed in or lived at the Waldorf's towers.

While it might be a great honor to have the president stay in your hotel, it's no easy task. With nearly 200 world leaders and countless ambassadors gathering in New York this week for the 64th United Nations General Assembly hotels across the city are busy putting on their best show.

John Doherty spent 30 years working at the Waldorf, 23 of them as executive chef. He said this week brings an exhilarating challenge: besides Obama, there are roughly two dozen other heads of state staying at the hotel.

They then review a series of menus for all of the public dinners or meetings that the president will have at the hotel. For instance, President Ronald Regan had to avoid spices and nuts.

And no, despite rumors, there is no government taste tester checking each dish for poison, Doherty said. However, the government is present in the kitchen as meals are being prepared.

George H. W. Bush was particularly interested in the food being served and would often quiz Doherty when staying at the Waldorf.

"Everybody made a big deal of him not liking broccoli but he was a real foodie. He loved everything and wanted to talk about the food and what was in it and how it was prepared," Doherty said.

One time, Doherty said he was waiting with Bush, Secretary of State James Baker and National Security Advisor Brent Scowcroft for then British Prime Minister John Major to arrive for dinner.

"President Bush wanted to know what we were having that night," Doherty recalls. "I can tell you the other two couldn't give a darn -- by their body language and all -- but the president was totally engaged and wanted to know what they were going to eat."

Surely not The Glorious Leader! I would have thought he would have a bunk at the YMCA.

Oh, wait! That kind of thing is for the little people, the proletariat. Who would think less was due for this man who has accomplished so much for so many years of his life.

Re: Obama checks into 4 bedroom, $7000/night suite
Ummmm, it is the Presidential Suite. Ummmm, article even states ALL of the presidents have stayed in this suite.

I don't like Obama but can't fault him on this one. It would sort of be like saying he couldn't fly in AF1 due to the cost.

This is a non-starter. Now, if he varies from the norm of what other presidents have done by let's say ordering that it be remodeled to his taste prior to his staying there, ok, then I would have a problem.

Re: Obama checks into 4 bedroom, $7000/night suite
He is probably paying the "Government Rate" (probably about $120/night in NYC) for his room ... and the hotel is HAPPY to get it!!

Why would they rent that suite for the standard "Government Rate"? Think of all the publicity they are getting!! Next week they will rent that room out at full rack rate, NO DISCOUNTING AT ALL!!

(Even if he is paying above that rate it you can be sure it is a deeply discounted rate ... again due to the PR benefit for the hotel).

If ALL the recently past US Presidents have been staying there I don't see what the problem is. Would you rather the US President stay down at the YMCA with it's lack of security and just released felons on the same floor?

Are these not the same people who tell you how important it is that you sacrifice and lower your standard of living? The ones who complain about waste and pollution?

While they, on the other hand, live in luxury and keep turning up the thermostat. A preview of what is to come. They live in luxury while you live in poverty.

Most amazing? People cannot see this and ACTUALLY SUPPORT creating poverty and slavery for themselves.

Why enslave you when they can convince you to enslave yourself?

Sacrifice, so your Obama can live a better life.

Well I heard he was going to save a doggie bag of his leftovers from the 4 seasons and donate them to some people on SSI from the local area and forego the complimentary Caviar, so he's really roughing it for the good of the people.

Question: It's about 200 miles "as the crow flies" from Washington D.C. to New York.

Why couldn't Barry just fly there?

Marine 1 can fly at 150mph (cruising) for about 500 miles (full tank).
