While money may not buy you happiness, it can get you one night in these suites to live like royalty

If money is no objection, the world is at your palm to take your pick from the most outrageous experience money can buy to the most luxurious hotel suites for a stay. Elite Traveler, a private jet lifestyle magazine, has released its list of the top 100 suites for 2018, and they include places that are the go-to spots for A-listers like Charlize Theron and George Clooney. From a hilltop villa on a private island to a city suite with a panoramic view of the Manhattan’s skyline, these hotel rooms have it all!

We take a closer look at the six topmost hotel suites that may cost some more than a whole year’s rent, with prices ranging from $45,000 to a mind-boggling $100,000.

Mark Penthouse Suite, The Mark Hotel

The Duchess of Sussex who is accustomed to some of the best things in life, recently had her baby shower thrown here. At 12,000sq ft and occupying over two floors, we understand how this is her choice – it is the largest hotel suite in the United States. While New York City is infamous for charging an exorbitant amount for tiny rooms, there will be no complaints about a lack of space here. The suite includes 5 bedrooms, 4 fireplaces, 6 bathrooms, 2 powder rooms, 2 wet bars, and the living room, which can be transformed into a full-sized Grand Ballroom complete with 26-foot ceilings. It certainly is befitting for royalty! W themarkhotel.com

The Penthouse Suite, Hotel Martinez

Location: Cannes, France
Price: $53,200 per night

This is a suite that is often the choice for A-listers during the Cannes Film Festival each year. If only walls could talk we would hear a thing or two about the stars who have stayed here for the festival. The suite is 1000sq ft, one of the largest in Europe and overlooks the Boulevard de la Croisette, the Bay of Cannes, and the hotel’s private beach. While you are there, head over to La Palme d’Or, Cannes’ only two-star Michelin restaurant. W Hyatt.com

Ty Warner Penthouse, Four Seasons

Location: New York, USA
Price: $50,000 per night

For a staggering $50,000, you will get a 360 degrees viewpoint of Manhattan from the tallest hotel in the city. The entire 52nd floor of Four Seasons Hotel New York was demolished for this view with no expense spared. The concrete columns were removed to create the ultimate castle in the clouds experience. The one-bedroom penthouse of 4,300 sq ft has four glass balconies, making the panoramic views of the Manhattan skyline and the city’s architectural landmarks the main feature for the suite. It has not one, but three private elevators that transport guests directly up to the penthouse, with a camera allowing to see who is making their way up. W fourseasons.com

The Hilltop Villa
