Joe Biden's recent night in a Paris luxury hotel cost the US taxpayers over $500,000. I guess there's no better endorsement for the Hotel Intercontinental Paris le Grand than news like this, as now everyone (who follows politics and/or the economy) has heard this news already. Heck, now I'm clamoring to stay in this Paris hotel at this point. What do you think?
A $585,000.50 bill for one night at a hotel is either the result of an unimaginable amount of room service, or, if you're a member of Vice President Joe Biden's posse, it's just another night in Paris.
That's per a contract awarded to the Hotel Intercontinental Paris Le Grand, which hosted Biden's one-night stay during a diplomatic trip to Europe in early February.
Despite the eye-popping figure, administration officials swear Biden hadn't been ransacking every mini-bar in sight.
The costs "are in line with high-level travel across multiple administrations," explained an unnamed State Department official to ABC News.
