Yeah, we're talking off the charts, but here goes: Millennium Hotels (operator of the Biltmore) is offering what it calls the "Whirlwind Romance" that starts in L.A., continues to London and finishes in NY. Tomorrow is the deadline for signing up, so pay attention. The L.A. leg includes:
1)Two nights in the Biltmore's Presidential Suite (nine presidents have stayed there).
2)VIP tickets to the Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art (no word about taking home souvenirs).
3)A private shopping tour on Rodeo Drive (you supply the credit card).
4)Daily breakfast and a 4-course dinner for two with unlimited flow of champagne at either of the hotelís two restaurants.
Then it's off to London, first class, for three nights at another presidential suite, more restaurant food and a balloon ride. Finally, you're headed to NY, again first class, where you'll stay in a penthouse suite for three nights, get tickets to a Broadway play, visit the Museum of Modern Art, take a helicopter flight over Manhattan and eat yet more restaurant food. The week ends with a first class flight to wherever you want to go. The whole shebang will set you back $150,000 - and yes, it does seem like a lot of money for what's basically eight nights of hotels, three airline flights and a bunch of rich food. Wouldn't you be a lot better off with Google stock?
