Biden's One-Night Paris Hotel Tab: $585,000.50

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.
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.
