Here are some of the most incredible, expensive, and extravagant hotel rooms that sadly, most of us will never be able to see outside of pictures.
Travel can be stressful. You’re away from home, in a strange town, and typically there’s no one you know anywhere within miles. For most of us, hotels are just okay, nothing more than a single room with a bed, a TV that gets about 40 channels, and hopefully, free Wi-Fi and clean sheets. That is unless you’re one of the lucky few who can afford to stay in the most mind-blowingly luxurious hotels in the world.
12Hotel President Wilson – Geneva
Let’s kick things off with a hotel suite that, if you can believe it, costs more than $83,000 per night. This Royal Penthouse is the most expensive hotel room in the world, though you can hardly call it a “room” since it’s got 12 rooms, making it larger than a lot of people’s actual houses.
11The Palms Casino – Las Vegas
It’s not much of a surprise that a hotel suite in Las Vegas would be absurdly expensive. After all, this is a city known for hosting plenty of high rollers. At $40,000 per night, the 12 room Sky Villa is absolutely palatial, clocking in at more than 9,000 square feet.
10Raj Palace – Jaipur
Got an extra $60,000 in your sofa cushions? Well, then you can rent this absolutely absurd 24,000 square foot hotel suite for one whole night. This is a hotel suite that doesn’t have a TV, it has its own private theater.
9Wakaya Club & Spa, Fiji
Everyone would love to vacation in Fiji, right? Tropical island paradises are always in style, after all. And there’d be no better way to visit the little island than to check out the Ambassador’s Bure, which is actually a bargain compared to some of these other places at $4,900 per night.
8The Plaza – New York City
One of the most famous hotels in the world, the Plaza in New York City has been featured in countless movies and, with that kind of international reputation, it’s obviously going to be a little pricey. But there’s costly, and then there’s the $30,000 per night that you’ll need for the Royal Plaza Suite.
7Four Seasons – New York City
But you know what? The Plaza isn’t even the most expensive suite in New York since it’s cheaper than the $35,000 price tag of the Ty Warner Penthouse at the Four Seasons. But hey, at least you get a personal masseuse with the room, right?
6Grand Resort Lagonissi – Athens
Greece is one of those countries everyone talks about wanting to visit, and if everyone could afford the Royal Villa at the Grand Resort Lagonissi, the country’s economy would be a lot better off. That’s because of this incredible pad, with an indoor pool and an outdoor pool, clocks in at $45,000 per night.
5Ritz-Carlton – Tokyo
When you think of expensive hotel chains, not many rival Ritz-Carlton in terms of opulence. This suite in Tokyo will set you back $20,000 per night, in part because it gives you a view of the city from within Tokyo’s tallest tower.
4Four Seasons Hotel Des Burgues – Geneva
Back to Geneva, and back to the Four Seasons chain for yet another Royal Suite that looks more like a museum than a place for you to kick back and put your feet on the table while you catch up on some bad late-night TV. The suite only has one bedroom, which seems a little scanty considering you’re forking over $13,400 every night you stay there.
3Four Seasons Hotel George V – Paris
Yep, we’re heading right back to the Four Seasons, this time in Paris. Paris is notoriously expensive, and the Penthouse Suite at this hotel is no different. For a mere $30,700 you can stay in this three-bedroom suite, which is totally worth it since we can only imagine how great the bidets must be.
2St. Regis Saadiyat Island Resort – Abu Dhabi
There are certain countries in the Middle East that love to show off opulence and extravagance, and the St. Regis Saadiyat Island Resort in Abu Dhabi is no different. At 22,600 square feet, it’s got four bedrooms and a movie theater and costs $35,000 per night.
1The Palms Casino – Las Vegas (Yes, Again)
A lot of people like to stay in shape while on the road, but having your own basketball court –complete with a locker room and a working scoreboard – seems a little over the top. The Hardwood Suite at the Palms Casino also has a full dance floor, a bar, and a 24-hour butler, and runs you $25,000 per night.
