No Social Media Butler? No Problem - Madison Hotel Providing Inauguration Deal

By Rachel Ramsey January 09, 2013

$47,000 can buy you one and a half semesters of a college education, a luxury car, a diamond and a yacht. It can also buy you a four-night-stay in Washington, D.C.’s Madison Hotel.

The Madison Hotel is offering a “Inaugural Town and Country” package, which includes a social media butler, four nights for two in one of the Madison’s Presidential Suites, a private Lincoln Town Car and driver, a private tour of D.C. with 22 of your closest friends, a $5,000 shopping “experience” at Brooks Brothers and a night at the Landsdowne Resort with a couple’s massage.

The Madison Hotel Presidential Suites include the Madison Suite, Hamilton Presidential Suite, Washington Presidential Suite and Jefferson Presidential Suite. All offer amenities such as luxury linens, Keurig coffees, complimentary Wi-Fi and a personal premium bar.

Victoria Devine of Anchor Media will be your personal social media butler, who will chronicle your experience so friends and family can follow your adventures on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest. This is a really extreme case of, “Excuse me, can you take our picture?”

The 2013 Presidential Inauguration will be held on Monday, January 21 – the second time in history that Inauguration Day will coincide with Martin Luther King Jr. Day. An estimated 1.8 million people attended the 2009 Presidential Inauguration of Barack Obama, a record-breaking number for any event in the nation’s capital.

A 2004 Inaugural package offered by the Fairmont Hotel, called “President for a Day” included a pair of actors who would shadow you around the city and pretend to be Secret Service agents. I guess that’s the kind of feel the hotel is trying to offer this year, as many famous celebrities hire ghost writers and managers to run their social media accounts.
