How The Other Half Lives In Milan

You know, a lot of us are concerned these days with the high cost of travel, especially as it relates to fuel prices. Many of us are taking vacations closer to home, which accounts for the Travel Guru sightings last weekend at Milo McGiver State Park in Oregon, where a newly acquired used tent (only $35, Ma!) doubled for my usual palatial digs at four-star resorts.

You'll be happy to know that the ultra-rich are having their own dilemmas when it comes to travel. Just choosing one at random, how, for instance, can one ride around in style through the streets of Milan, Italy after one has booked the $7,087-a-night Presidential Suite at the Park Hyatt Milan hotel, an utterly chic boutique hotel in that utterly chic city? I mean, who has money left over to rent a car at those prices?

Not to worry: The Presidential Suite at the Park Hyatt Milan now comes with the complimentary use of a Porsche Boxster, Carrera or Cayenne (you choose) for the duration of your stay, allowing you to zip around the streets of the city in your customary style.

Those of us who camp out on vacations truly hope you don't scuff your Gucci loafers on the way from your Porsche to your Presidential Suite.
