When I was traveling all the time for work, I once was upgraded to the presidential suite in this hotel I always stayed at. Knew most of the staff, etc. One morning I came down to breakfast and saw lots of dudes with earpieces, dogs, and weapons all in the lobby. Asked what was going on, and it turned out McCain was staying in the hotel that night (this was when he was running for president). Not sure what room he was staying in, cause I had the presidential suite. I can only guess it was a last minute thing or they'd never have given me that suite.
