The Suite Life: The $11,650-a-Night Royal Suite at the Rosewood Hotel Georgia
The Digs: The Rosewood Royal Suite at the Rosewood Hotel Georgia in Vancouver
Size: 3,781 square feet
Price: $11,650 per night
The Skinny: This month, the historic Vancouver property debuted their new luxury pad: a four-bedroom behemoth perched on the 45th floor. All bedrooms boast en-suite baths and have access to a media room, den, and balcony. Entertaining is encouraged, thanks to brag-worthy, 180-degree views of the city, as well as a posh dining room and full-service kitchen. The true draw, however, is the selection of curated Rosewood Royal Suite amenities. Guests with reservations in this fab flat will be treated to a wardrobe consultant, a private cycling tour of the city with the hotel's managing director, and daily spa treatments. Add in-suite private meals, designed by a personal chef, and you'll feel like, well, a royal.
The Backstory: Had the Royal Suite been around since the property opened in 1927, it undoubtedly would have been the suite of choice for the Hotel Georgia's most famous guests, including Katharine Hepburn (who always took dinner in the privacy of her room), Marlene Dietrich (whose 40 suitcases would have been well attended by the Royal Suite's personal stylist), Elvis Presley, Nat King Cole, Frank Sinatra, and—of course—a regular stream of British royals.
Pro Tip: Grab a drink at the new cocktail bar, Prohibition, which opened in February. The 3,000-square-foot bar channels the swank and the mystery of the 1920s, thanks to a Macassar ebony ceiling and a glittering custom glass chandelier. Sample absinthes, poured over a sugar cube, from a vintage-style fountain, or order one of the signature tipples: the hotel's namesake cocktail, the Hotel Georgia, is a 1940s revival of gin, lemon, orgeat, orange blossom water, egg white, and nutmeg—designed to be "elegant, sophisticated, and cultured."
