While President Barack Obama was in Las Vegas for a sold-out fundraiser, he once again chose Caesars Palace as his resort of choice. Having been a frequent guest of the hotel during his campaign, President Obama noted to the audience, “I thought I had a pretty nice room,” he said. “But now I’m president, they upgraded me. It’s a really nice room now.”
Nice it is–the 22,000 square foot suite in the newly renovated Forum Tower offers unparalleled views of the Las Vegas Strip and offers and exterior patio with private pool. Always one to stay in shape, the President made sure to make a visit to the renowned Qua Baths and Spa for a workout and was spotted shaking hands and thanking the Caesars staff along the way. He also made a special surprise visit to room service to thank the staff.
At the fundraiser, Bette Midler (who like President Obama grew up in Hawaii), gave President Obama a ukulele for his daughters, Sasha and Malia.
