Not Surprisingly, Paul Ryan Shacked Up at a Fairfield Inn before VP Announcement

Just before presidential hopeful Mitt Romney mistakenly introduced his running mate, Paul Ryan, as "the next president of the United States", Ryan spent the night at Fairfield Inn in North Carolina, ordering take-out from Applebee's.

Given that Romney was once on the board of Marriott Hotels, which is the parent company of Fairfield Inn, this isn't a very surprising hotel choice. (Although, the Applebee's bit is. They do take-out? Interesting.) Of course, the Romney-Ryan ticket isn't exclusively beholden to Marriott hotel brands. Back in April, Ann Romney confessed to staying at Hampton Inns for the free WiFi. For more on the Romney ticket's hotel spending, check out this report from USA Today.

And from now through November, Romney and Ryan will be hitting up all different kinds of hotels on the campaign trail like the Venetian in Las Vegas tomorrow. We have to say that's definitely an improvement from Fairfield Inn, except the WiFi isn't free.
