Vice President Joe Biden’s one night stand at the Paris Le Grand Hotel in Paris cost more than most Americans earn in a year or pay for their home. Nothing’s to good for Joe when thetaxpayer’s are footing the bill.
A government document released on February 14, 2013 shows that the contract for the Hotel Intercontinental Paris Le Grand came in at $585,000.50. The documentation for this contract is not as detailed, so the cost per room is not available. The Intercontinental Paris Le Grand is a five star hotel. Security concerns prevent these type of contracts from being open to bidding, but if the government was able to do some comparison shopping, the Hotel Intercontinental has a special offer, "Find a lower price elsewhere and your first night is free." The Vice President stayed in Paris for one night. Source
