Political Hotels: A Tour Of 2012's Campaign Fundraisers (PHOTOS)

Posted: Updated:

Let's see if you can guess what the following events have in common: a super-secret conference hosted by the billionaire Koch brothers; a concert with $10,000 tickets featuring Mariah Carey; an uber-luxe weekend golf retreat in Deer Valley, Utah.

If you guessed that they were all campaign fundraisers, you guessed right. Each of these events was orchestrated for one purpose -- to help either Romney or Obama win the 2012 election. (Romney is currently pulling in more dollars -- specifically, $35 million more than Obama in the month of June.)

But the events had something else in common, too -- they all took place at some of the country's top luxury hotels. And we wouldn't be the hotel tell-all if we didn't spill the details on just what went down -- and where.
