If you’ve just won the lottery and you’re looking to take a once-in-a-lifetime trip (and make a one-time-only splurge), a number of hotel rooms are now totally within your budget, with nightly price tags that equal a year’s salary—or the GDP of a small island nation.
From the $20,000 Presidential Suite at Milan’s Hotel Principe di Savoia to the $50,000 Four Seasons Hotel New York’s Ty Warner Penthouse, these elite spaces have more than just a top-notch mini bar.
Travelers who can casually drop $75,000, for example, can customize the color scheme in their Grand Penthouse at New York City’s The Mark hotel. Guests can also host a dinner party for as many as 24 people in the spacious dining room—or just ask Chef Jean-Georges to create an exclusive meal for them on the rooftop terrace.
It’s not just the in-room amenities (think: a Steinway grand piano, private heated pool, and a library stocked with antique books) that entice high rollers to crack their wallets open wide. VIP access and royal treatment, like 24-hour suit tailoring from Bergdorf Goodman and a veritable fleet of butlers to serve you endless champagne and caviar, are included in your room rate.
While most of us will never be able to afford the digs, dreaming—and gawking—is blissfully free. Though we can’t promise you won’t be jealous of the outrageous views (or the perks) that are available to big spenders living the suite life.
