Is This What Presidential Candidates Do In Hotel Rooms?

Time for a touch of levity, we think, and this one we couldn't resist. A video by Funny or Die detailing what life might look like inside the Boca Raton hotel rooms of Barack Obama and Mitt Romney while they're on the campaign trail.

We cracked up at the Michelle Obama bits and gigglesnorted at Ann Romney's choice of bedside reading material.

Sigh. If only politics were always this funny!

The Kids Will Be Alright at Camp Boca at the Boca Beach Club

May 18, 2012 at 2:48 PM | by | ()

Summer's nearly here and if you're a parent that means you're on the lookout for fun places to take the kids. Yup, once you're a parent, your vacation plans are pretty much ruled by the little ones.

However at the Boca Raton Resort and Club in Boca Raton, Fla. there might be a way for both you and the mini-tyrants in your life to have a good time. The resort's Boca Beach Club just unveiled their very own Random House Kids Library.

The custom-made library features more than 100 titles including books from Dr. Seuss and Stepping Stones collections. These books are accessible to kids who enroll in the beach club's Camp Boca program but they can also be borrowed by families at no extra cost during their stay.

Boca Beach Club in Boca Raton, FL, must get a lot of good kite-flying weather. Because, as part of its new beefed-up roster of activities, the hotel is launching a beachfront kite-flying program, helmed by master kite-flyer (and former math teacher) Randy Lowe (pictured, top right).

If you've ever been curious about the world of kite-flying, this is the guy to talk to. Randy not only loves flying kites, but a rep for the hotel calls him a "true performer"; plus, he's invested over $100,000 on a private specialty kite collection, which he keeps at his home in Delray Beach. Wanna catch this guy in action? Read on to find out how.

Hypo-allergenic hotel rooms have been spreading like the flu. The latest hotel infected with the bacteria-free room craze is Hilton Suites Boca Raton. A tipster told us the hotel is in the process of installing a slew of new Pure room, and we confirmed that the Florida hotel is indeed getting 16 such rooms.

This will make the Hilton the only hotel in Boca Raton to have hypo-allergenic rooms. The installation of the rooms will wrap up September 19-23.

Is This The Dark Side of the Boca Raton Resort and Club?

When we think of Boca Raton, a popular warm getaway destination for the Northeast, we typically think of two things--Jerry Seinfeld's parents and the colors pink and beige, which is pretty much the color scheme for all major buildings down there.

Which is why we were surprised that the Boca Raton Resort and Club has a carpeting pattern that looks as if it was left over from the 70s. Indeed, HotelChatter Flickr Member TomBarnes20008 writes:

Don't get me wrong. I love the Boca Resort. Parts of the Tower, however, appear to be lost in a 1970s time warp. This is the lobby stairway carpeting in the Tower.

Waldorf-Astoria Collection Eats Up the Everything Bagel of Hotels

Hooray! Now we have somewhere that is certified-Waldorf-posh to stay when we go down to visit our grandparents in Boca — should a fam visit warrant splurging on opulent and certifie-Waldorf-Posh, that is.

The Boca Raton Resort and Club, which the New York Times called "the everything bagel of hotels" last year because it "offers whatever you need, but it has no striking personality" is now part of the Waldorf-Astoria Collection. Fresh off a $200-million renovation and set up sorta like a "waterfront village," the resort offers four different kinds of digs in the main resort area of the hotel.

Additionally, the 212-room Boca Beach Club on the Atlantic across the Intracoastal Waterway offers cabana-style guestrooms — and as the Times found out for us, not all the rooms and views across the 356-acre property are created equal, so do your research. We found rates at the Resort starting at $199 and rates at the Beach Club starting at $149.

This is the 13th hotel to join the Waldorf Collection — was it struggling and in need of a brand behind it, perhaps?

The Boca Raton Resort May Have Had Too Many Renovations

The last time we mentioned the Boca Raton Resort & Club in Florida, it was because Regis Philbin was annoyed that he'd tipped the bellman before he found out tips are all included. This week the New York Times checked it out, and came out with a fairly lukewarm conclusion too. Reviewer Geraldine Fabrikant writes:

The Boca is the hotel version of the everything bagel. It offers whatever you need, but it has no striking personality.

What it does have is 80 years of history, and 80 years of various renovations and rebuilds which enables it to offer different styles of accommodation depending on your vacation needs, so it's suitable for families or couples or groups all at once.

However, all this leads to staff and service being stretched just a bit too far.

Fabrikant says:

Like a woman who does her face, but neglects her neck, parts of the hotel seem to have not gotten the help they need.
