The candidates for America’s 2016 presidential election are two of the most disliked presidential candidates in American history, with about half of voters viewing Donald Trump unfavorably and only a little less than that viewing Hillary Clinton unfavorably. In short, most Americans feel this is an election they just can’t get that excited about. So what to do about it? Perhaps some hotel retail therapy.

Lifting our spirits from this depressing election is the new “Election Collection” from shirtmaker Thomas Pink and the legendary Mayflower Hotel in Washington D.C., an Autograph Collection Hotel from Marriott.

The collection is meant to be a “curated portfolio of patriotic themed clothing and accessories.” Given that the Mayflower has loads of political history (it has hosted countless inaugural balls and many presidents and heads of state), putting a few of those patriotic Pink pieces on display just made sense. (Finally, something about this election makes sense!)


From now through November 3, anyone passing through the Mayflower can eye the Election Collection, and hopefully, start feeling a little better about the 2016 Election. But there’s a special perk for hotel guests—20% off any piece in the collection. Rates right now are currently in the $237 a night range but may go up as Election Day nears….
