Wow, well it looked like the modern rebranding of Holiday Inn is working out for them, because President Barack Obama and his family are staying at the Holiday Inn Regency Bar Harbor this weekend.

Michelle and the girls headed up to Maine with Barack earlier today, all packed and ready for a relaxing weekend of hiking Acadia National Park and hanging out in cooler temperatures. Bo the dog is joining them too! He flew up a few days early though, with secret service and security detail who've been working to nail down the specifics of the President's long weekend stay.

So why is Barack at this Holiday Inn? Well, the New York Daily News points out that the hotel is owned by Thomas Walsh, a "big Democratic moneyman" in this Republican-heavy area. But it's not like the Prez is slouching when it comes to his job; he has taken half the number of vacation that former president George W. Bush did at this point in his presidency. Go eat a s'more by the Holiday Inn's fireside, Obama; you deserve it.

The good news is, if you too can make it up to Bar Harbor, you can stay at the very same hotel for under $250 a night—and that's for the very nicest of rooms.
