Well, no doubt, President Obama was sorry to see me leave the building. For 36 hours, I was on the lookout for POTUS (and tweeting), who was staying in MY hotel in Palm Beach.
I saw the sweep the day before and was sure Kim or Beyonce or Suri was coming for a visit.
Then the shades arrived and it became clear, the President was staying. Pat downs, metal detectors, car searches well before his arrival. But no sign.
I continued to casually loop the property looking for the reporter pool or even FLOTUS. Nothing.
Stealth survey results: No hotel employee talks. But at least 33 percent of agents love to chat. "He arrived at 9 pm." But everyone was still in the lobby waiting for him at 11 pm? ("He will never use the front door.")
