Once the winner of the presidential election was decided last November, local hotels leapt into action to come up with the most over-the-top Inauguration packages for the January 21st event. Because what better way to celebrate democracy than a weekend of stratospheric level perks? There are shopping sprees in the tens of thousands of dollars, jewelry fit for a queen, and—natch—chauffers, champagne, and dinner at the best restaurants. The most bonkers of them all has got to be the JW Marriot that is offering 300 of their rooms plus $800,000 in food and drinks for the total price of $2.7M, but the most innovative of them all is the Madison hotel with a package that includes a social media butler in the $47,000 package. She will be on hand to manage the guests' personal Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Tumblr feeds so that they can enjoy the weekend instead of spending time taking pictures and uploading them.
