5 of the World’s Most Expensive Rooms

Written By: The Planet D

Not many of us can afford a luxury hotel room let alone an outrageously expensive presidential suite: but we all love to dream. When this post came across our desk from Escape Travel, we thought it’d be fun to share a little fantasy of the most expensive rooms from hotels around the world. Who doesn’t want to take a peek at how the other half lives? 

5 of the World’s Most Expensive rooms

Everyone dreams of staying at a luxury hotel, but hearing the colossal amount of money you have to drop just for a nightly visit leaves most people mouth agape.

Nevertheless, here are the five of the most expensive hotel rooms in the world.

Decide for yourself if the amenities are enough to justify such a large cost!

1. Ritz-Carlton’s Presidential Suite, Tokyo

Nightly Price: $25,000

This hotel room is a stunning 307 square meters that comes with a large four-poster bed located in the master bedroom.

Guests get a personal concierge, and there is also a living room connected to the bedroom area.

There is also a gym and indoor pool for people with this room.

The bathroom itself is very spacious, and nearly everything is made of marble. Outside the window, guests can see the Imperial Palace and Roppongi Hills.

Perhaps the only disappointing aspect is the TV. Guests get a Sony BRAVIA, but it’s only 20 inches.

2. Westin Excelsior’s Villa La Capula Suite, Rome

Nightly Price: $29,000

Nearly twice as large as the Presidential Suite, this hotel offers guests luxurious amenities. There is a large Pompeii-styled pool for guests to relax in, and there are intricate frescoes of painted horizons.

Each guest gets their own balcony and stained glass windows. There is a private kitchen, and a wine cabinet featuring over 150 different wines to choose from.

Nearly all the furniture is hand-carved wood, and there is an antique chandelier. Guests also get their own private cinema.

3. Four Seasons Hotel’s Ty Warner Penthouse, New York

Nightly Price: $34,000

The suite itself is composed of nine different rooms.

The walls have mother of pearl, and all the fabrics are woven with gold and platinum.

In the Zen room, there is a waterfall, and guests can enjoy a private piano or hot tub soak.

Aside from spa treatments, a private butler and a personal trainer, this suite also offers amenities that extend outside the hotel.

If the guest wants to go outside, they are chauffeured in a Maybach or Rolls Royce, and the L’Atelier de Joel Robuchon restaurant is guaranteed to have a seat open for this guest.

4. Palms Casino Resort’s Hugh Hefner Sky Villa, Las Vegas

Nightly Price: $40,000

This isn’t so much a hotel as it is a house. The room is made to imitate the famed Playboy Mansion and has a glass elevator so guests can easily access the two stories.

Yes, the suite is two stories large.

There are three bedrooms, an exercise and spa room, a poker table, a fireplace, and a 24/7 butler.

Aside from breathtaking strip views, there is also a rotating bed with a glass ceiling.

5. Presidential Wilson Hotel’s Royal Penthouse Suite, Geneva

Nightly Price: $53,000


Most hotel buildings are rather large, and getting an entire floor to yourself seems almost laughable. But that’s what you pay for at the Royal Penthouse Suite, the entire top floor.

Made to accommodate 40 people, this room can only be reached via a private elevator and comes equipped with four bedrooms and six bathrooms.

There is an indoor library, water fountain, billiards table and a large dining room for 26 people.

Security is a major concern here, because UN officials and celebrities use this hotel, so all the glass is bulletproof.

This hotel easily dwarfs most houses, and is adorned with marble and hardwood, all in a contemporary style.

There you have it, 5 Outrageously priced hotel rooms in the world.

And here I thought the upgrade to the Yurt with a woo- burning stove as opposed to the non-heated Yurt in Mongolia was pretty special.

  1. Just wondering about the facilities they will provide if they are charging that much amount for 1 night. But still I prefer to buy a house rather then spending that much money for just 1 night or Donate that must money.

    • Isn’t that Grand Piano Grand! I’d have to learn how to play, or else we could just play chopsticks on it all night and annoy the neighbours:)

  2. That’s quite a list. At $53K a night I wonder how many nights a year they rent out that suite. I was actually in the Ty Warner suite at the NYC 4 Seasons for a party once…needless to say, absurdly beautiful and opulent. Would love to check out the Hugh Hefner Villa at the Palms

    • Hi Eric, I wonder how often they comp that suite for most people. The rich barely ever pay out of their own pocket. I am guessing that they probably let the rich and famous stay here for free for the publicity. Absurdly beautiful is the perfect way to put it!

      • I also really curious how often they have guests in these suites, but it’s a good point that some uber famous people probably get to stay there comped. But still… how often would someone actually pay for these??

      • That is something I would like to know as well. It seems that the ultra rich always feel entitled to not have to pay for anything, so I wonder how many people would actually fork out $50,000 for a night in a hotel. Hmm, something to research.

    • Haha, Juls. I wouldn’t be surprised if they had a minimum stay. When your spending that kind of money, you probably wouldn’t care anyway:)

  3. Wow–they look incredible! If given the choice, I’d probably take the room in Tokyo. I’m sure it would be a nice place to escape to and would feel even more spacious after being on busy, crowded streets during the day. The one in Rome also looks great due to the balcony. Hmmm. Tough to decide!

    • Hi Lisa, we’ve never been to Rome so we’d probably go for that just for the new experience but you are so right. Imagine how heavenly that would be in Tokyo after being on the crowded streets all day. But then again, only 20 inches? I turn my nose up at a 20 inch TV :-)
