Fairmont Chicago Millennium Park Hosts the Ultimate Presidential Viewing Party

The election night return viewing party to be at was clearly at the Fairmont Chicago, Millennium Park.  Last night, the downtown Chicago luxury hotel near Grant Park played host to not just President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama, but also VP Joe Biden and his wife Jill Biden.  POTUS, FLOTUS, VPOTUS, and SLOTUS hunkered down in a suite to watch the returns roll in and later, to celebrate re-election. What isn't clear is if the viewing party was held in the hotel's Obama-themed Presidential suite. The 1,850-sq.-ft. top floors suite overlooks Grant Park, where Obama made his historic acceptance speech in 2008. The suite has a selection of memorabilia from Obama's political career, a Kauai grand piano, 300 thread count linens, whirlpool tub, and a library stocked with presidential tomes, such as former president Clinton's autobiography.  The minibar and pantry are well-stocked with the First Family's favorite snacks, which include corn chips and iced tea. 

Republican candidate Mitt Romney spent the evening watching returns from a hotel room at the Westin Boston Waterfront Hotel.  His running mate Paul Ryan joined him later.
