Eliot Spitzer’s Hotel Choice Further Evidence of Refined Tastes

Spitzerweb_2 Hypothetically speaking, say you were a married man, say even the governor of New York State, and you were going to hire a high-class call girl.  Where would you rendezvous?  Clearly you can’t go back to your place, and I’m guessing that ladies thusly employed aren’t in the habit of taking clients to their bachelorette pads.

Perhaps for a romantic Valentine’s Eve, you’d do as former New York Governor Eliot Spitzer did and treat your 5’ 5” 105-pound petite brunette to a romp at the exclusive and historic Mayflower Hotel.  This four-diamond Marriott property claims to be the largest luxury hotel in Washington D.C., which is a good thing if you’re trying to remain anonymous but still impress your lady.  And according to 145 TripAdvisor ratings , the Mayflower is an all-around standout, with ironically high marks for cleanliness. I can’t help but wonder if Mr. Spitzer booked the Flirt with an Escape! Romance package from Renaissance! during his stay.  I’m sure that "Kristen" would have enjoyed the in-room Champagne and FTD flowers.  And who doesn’t like late checkout? Not to mention that the gentlemanly Mr. Spitzer apparently told his lady friend to help herself to anything form the mini-bar, on him.  How sweet. 

It seems like Mr. Spitzer made a least one good decision amidst a plethora of bad ones.  A lady likes a quality hotel, you know.
