A hotel in the United States offered itself to the highest bidder for a whole night – New Year’s Eve 2010.
On the eBay auction, the Curtis Hotel in Denver, Colorado promised the winner 330 rooms, the grand ballroom, live music, a champagne reception, dinner, breakfast and the services of all the staff. The
promotion was headlined: ‘One night, one hotel, one unbelievable memory.’
The offer went live on eBay on October 1st and ended on Sunday with 6 bids. The final one was $52,300 (£32,700), but this didn’t reach the reserve price so the chance of staging the party-to-end-all-parties went begging.
