THE MOST EXPENSIVE HOTEL ROOMS IN THE WORLD
THE APARTMENT AT THE HOTEL CONNAUGHT IN LONDON
At $23,500 a night, the Apartment offers a private butler and menus designed by Michelin-starred chef Helene Darroze. It has a wrap-around balcony overlooking London’s incredibly posh Mayfair area.
THE SHANGRI-LA SUITE AT THE SHANGRI-LA BOSPHORUS IN ISTANBUL
At a mere $26,385 a night, the Shangri-La Suite takes up the entire top floor of the Shangri-La hotel, overlooking the Bosphorus Strait in Istanbul.
THE ROYAL SUITE AT THE HÔTEL PLAZA ATHÉNÉE IN PARIS
The Royal Suite is the largest hotel room in Paris, with 450 square meters. It’s also $27,000 a night…$27,000 which totally couldn’t have gone towards paying off my student loans instead.
THE ROYAL SUITE AT ST. REGIS SAADIYAT ISLAND, IN THE UNITED ARAB EMIRATES
At $35,000 a night, the Royal Suite at St. Regis is the largest hotel room in the UAE. It has two floors, butler service, and a private theater.
THE PENTHOUSE SUITE AT THE GRAND HYATT CANNES HÔTEL MARTINEZ
At a quaint $37,500 a night, the Penthouse Suite at the Hotel Martinez in Cannes offers views of the Bay of Cannes (from a terrace Jacuzzi, of course), and two king-size bedrooms.
THE HILLTOP ESTATE OWNER’S ACCOMMODATION AT THE LAUCALA ISLAND RESORT IN FIJI
Not only is this villa $40,000 a night, but you can’t just book the room. You have to apply for the privilege of giving them enough money to pay the equivalent of most four-year in-state college tuition over the course of a day.
The entire island is owned by Red Bull’s billionaire owner, and consists of 25 villas, but this is the best. It has panoramic views of the island, free massages, and horse rides on the beach.
THE TY WARNER PENTHOUSE AT THE FOUR SEASONS IN NEW YORK
The Ty Warner Suite at the Four Seasons in New York will set you back a cool $45,000 a night. It’s the highest hotel room in New York, with a 360 view of the city, and it took 7 years and $50 million dollars to build. The room has its own art concierge and also a huge library. It only houses three — with accommodations for a child.
