The World’s Top Ten Most Expensive Hotel Suites
Two years have passed since Billionaire.comfirst compiled The World’s Most Expensive Hotel Suites. Now, even deeper pockets are required to book one of these ultra-exclusive suites.
The world’s previous number-one hotel suite, the Royal Penthouse Suite at Geneva’s Hotel President Wilson, has lost its crown to New York ‘super suite’ The Grand Penthouse at The Mark. Including taxes, this eye-watering suite costs the best part of US$100,000 for a single night.
Designer of the Grand Penthouse, acclaimed French designer Jacques Grange, says: “It is really like a castle in the sky; the ultimate residence away from home for those who truly appreciate rarefied luxury; who seek a grand space that is equally equipped to lavishly entertain as it is to provide a homely private oasis with extraordinary amenities and services.”
Currency fluctuations and price hikes over the last two years has meant that some suites are now worth a lot more, or a lot less, than they were. In this year’s ranking we are including taxes in the room rates, seeing as those nightly charges alone could pay for a 10-day vacation package for most mere mortals.
