Not all the costs are in, but so far Michelle Obama’s soft-sell public relations tour — little more than a vacation, some say — to China includes her stay at a hotel that charges $8,400 a night.

The first lady is staying at the presidential suite in the 5-star Westin Hotel at Chaoyang, located near the U.S. Embassy, USA Today reported. That’s the same hotel that was deemed as too expensive for vice president Joe Biden when he made the trip in December, The Daily Caller reported.

Documents from the Federal Business Opportunities reported by the Weekly Standard revealed that Mr. Biden was pressed to find cheaper digs during his visit. The memo: “Westin Chaoyang — price was prohibitive when compared with St. Regis — otherwise met requirements.”
