A $37,000 Hotel Room
Here is a post about those upon whom you might wish some form of harm. Not necessarily bodily harm. Just a little bit of psychic harm might be fine. But something that smacks them upside the head and says, hey dummy! Don't you now there are starving people in Africa? Poor people without homes in New Orleans? Kids without computers in schools? Can't you find a better place to put $37,000 than into one night's stay at a hotel?
OK, that some mean blustering, but take a look at this post over at Luxist. It turns out that there actually IS a hotel called the Hotel Martinez that actually offers a suite that costs $37,200 per night. The Hotel is in Cannes, France and needless to say has wide appeal among the overpaid, over-celebrated celebrity types. The penthouse suite is known as the Exceptional 7th Floor Suite, and sprawls over 2,000 sq. feet. There are four bedrooms, marble baths, several dining rooms, a plasma screen TV or two or three, and a spa on a terrace with panoramic views of the Mediterranean.
If it were me, I’d have the TV tuned permanently to the UNICEF channel so the tenants would have to look into the haunting eyes of poor children as the clock ticks off each $26 minute that they spend in the suite.
