The POTUS Is Just Like Us--He Stays at The Element Hotel!
It's been a while since we checked in on the hotel habits of the POTUS but yesterday we we were psyched to see that Barack Obama stayed at a hotel that we've actually stayed at before...twice!
When visiting Las Vegas on the campaign trail, Obama eschewed the hotel casinos on the Strip and instead took over the entire Element Las Vegas hotel in Summerlin, about 15 minutes from the Strip. 8newsnow.com reports:
Onlookers were curious as to why President Obama chose to stay farther away from the bright lights of the Las Vegas Strip.
"This Element is earth friendly, and I think he's trying to promote that on his visit," Carol Bieganowski said.
The Element is certainly "earth-friendly" from its toiletry dispensers in the showers, recycling bins under the desks, recycled paper products in the kitchen and energy-conserving lights. But we also loved the joint for its spacious rooms at rather affordable prices, the free WiFi, the yummy free breakfast and that it's entirely smoke-free.
So sometimes, you may not get the best views but we're sure the POTUS had a room in the back of the hotel so he could see the lights of the Strip.
Wanna sleep where the POTUS slept? Room rates at the hotel are going for $103 a night for a room with two queen beds.
