Ike slept here: The bedroom in the Eisenhower suite.

When Dwight Eisenhower was president, he used the hotel as a Western White House (his wife, Mamie, was from Denver); the Brown still has an Eisenhower suite, as well as a Roosevelt suite and a Reagan suite. But don't look for an Obama suite any time soon.

When Obama stayed overnight in Denver last Tuesday, he opted for the Four Seasons, the city's newest swank hotel. And he didn't even get the presidential suite, because it was already booked.
