Biden’s One-Night Paris Hotel Tab: $585,000.50

As it turns out, Vice President Joe Biden’s London stay in February was not the most expensive part of his trip. A government document released on February 14, 2013 shows that the contract for the Hotel Intercontinental Paris Le Grand came in at $585,000.50.


The documentation for this contract is not as detailed as the London one, so the cost per room is not available.  However, just like his London hotel, the Hotel Intercontinental Paris Le Grand is a five star hotel. Again, security concerns prevent these type of contracts from being open to bidding, but if the government was able to do some comparison shopping, the Hotel Intercontinental has a special offer, “Find a lower price elsewhere and your first night is free.” The Vice President stayed in Paris for one night.

Pls pass this on–making people wait in customs lines and cutting out White House tours and easter egg rolls while they spend over half a million to house our dunce vp within blocks of our enormous embassy is an outrage.

Here’s a picture of our Embassy–just blocks away from the hotel:
