Former Somerville resident Barack Obama would have some pretty choice options were he to stay overnight after speaking Monday morning at the Greater Boston Labor Council's annual Labor Day breakfast. Who more appropriate to check into any of the three poshest presidential suites in Boston proper, after all? Rest assured, though: They're available to those of us who are not the leader of the free world—though it'll cost you.
Four Seasons Boston Presidential Suite
Pros: Private balcony overlooking the Public Garden; a dining room that seats 10 comfortably; baby grand piano.
Cons: Only on the sixth floor
Ritz Carlton Presidential Suite
Pros: Flat-screen TVs just about everywhere—the living room, the bedroom, the library, the master bathroom for some reason—each at least 39 inches; window seating in the master bedroom to take in the Public Garden-Common views
Cons: Dining room only seats eight; doesn't look like there's a balcony
Taj Boston Presidential Suite
Pros: Real artwork on the walls; a massage therapist at beck and call; Public Garden-Common views
Cons: Premium-speed Internet access costs extra (seriously?); only one flat-screen TV; dining room seats just six.
We should add that the Taj's Presidential Suite can be yours for $75,000 a month rather than nightly. As for the nightly rates, it's one of those if you have to ask... situations. Seriously, though, call for rates. It'll be a laugh.
