Presidents Day is just around the corner and of course that makes us reflect on our country’s leaders. But c’mon, we’re a hotel website so what it really makes us think about is presidential suites.The most lavish accommodations in hotels, presidential suites are fit for, well, presidents. In fact, they reportedly got their name from President Woodrow Wilson, who had a strict list of requirements for his hotel rooms. Some of those requirements may be standard nowadays (such as en-suite bathrooms) but the over-the-top luxury remains.
Last time, we highlighted the best presidential suites in New York City and Washington, D.C. so this time we’re heading to the West Coast to find the most drool-worthy presidential eye candy in Los Angeles and San Francisco.
This Beverly Hills hotel, the site of the Golden Globes, excels at luxury. Two business centres and superbly fast Internet in the elegant rooms make it a top pick for business travellers. Plus, its huge pool and name-brand fitness centre ably compete with the leisure facilities at more expensive hotels.
This 726-room behemoth in Century City, the commercial hub of LA's entertainment industry, has contemporary rooms with iPod docks, flat-screen TVs, and balconies (some with fantastic views).

The spacious marble bathroom is a highlight but the real cherry on top is that guests of the suite are given a free Mercedes-Benz to drive during their stay.
