Heading to Washington, D.C. to watch President Obama get sworn in for his second term? Want a luxurious hotel experience while you’re there? With all the excitement of witnessing a moment of history and living in the lap of luxury, how will you have time to live-tweet, Facebook and Instagram your experience?

Well, worry no more. According to the Daily Dot (via Mashable), the Madison Hotel is now offering an “Inaugural Town and Country” package. For a mere $47,000 (a four-night stay), the package includes a private Lincoln Town Car and driver, a couple’s massage, a $5,000 gift certificate for clothes, a night in a different hotel and the exclusive services of a dedicated “social media butler.”

What is a social media butler, you ask? According to the Madison Hotel’s press release, digital marketer Victoria Devine will “chronicle you Inaugural experience so your friends and family can follow your adventures on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest.”

Devine will “post on all of your accounts so you don’t have to fumble for your phone to catch that perfect Facebook profile picture!”

When interviewing with the Daily Dot, Devine said she had never been a social media butler before, but has experience live-tweeting conferences for previous clients.

She and the hotel haven’t exactly worked out what her services would be—like if she’ll have to work 24 hours a day. “We haven’t really figured out the details,” she said. “I guess we’re waiting to see if anyone buys it.”

Regardless of the money, would you want a social media butler? Or would you prefer to just post yourself? Comment and let us know!
