U.S. Rep. Anthony Weiner may have duly followed in his predecessors’ footsteps, but at least he acted appropriately youthful. Just like Justin Bieber, Weiner Tweeted his favorite photos to his Beliebers.

While Twitter, Facebook and other social media platforms are changing the world one revolution at a time, they’re also infecting our political leaders’ integrity. At Oyster, we believe a discreet hotel or bathroom stall would serve better as a clandestine rendezvous, but as they say, to each their own. Kudos to your Twitter blast, Weiner. This way, we can all see it — your pregnant wife included.

Check out the six best hotels that’ll keep congressmen safe in their scandalous endeavors — that is, until they electively share the evidence.

 

Hotel Hana Maui, Hawaii

Hotel: Hotel Hana-Maui, Maui, Hawaii

In the middle of Maui’s lush, secluded east coast, Hotel Hana-Maui’s incredible service, top spa, excellent food and great activities make it one of our favorites. Boasting only 77 rooms on acres of uncrowded property, the rooms are large, clean, sleekly furnished — and stripped of TVs, clocks, and radios. It may be hard to reach, but it’s worth the trip.

We know, 5-star hotels and music festivals don’t really go in the same sentence — as most festival-goers sleep under the stars with fellow music junkies. While the thousands of hippies may prefer to sleep closer to nature, the bands they’ve traveled far and wide to see tend to prefer different accommodations. From Eminem to Taylor Swift, find out which hotels best suit the biggest Bonnaroo and CMA Festival headliners.

Headliner: Eminem
Hotel: The Palms Casino Resort, Las Vegas

The Palms is known for its crazy parties and celebrity stopovers, aiming to please the hip, the sophisticated and the decadent. With three great clubs and a rowdy pool scene, the Palms knows how to party, and the crowd reflects that. The three-tower complex has a boisterous pool complex with three bars and a DJ, nine restaurants, a spa, and multiple nightclubs, including the rooftop Ghost Bar, the dance club Rain, and a Playboy Club. Sounds like an Eminem recipe to us.
