Lodging, hiking, ski-trips and cruises – these are fine and dandy, but let’s talk about luxury and excess for a moment. Speaking of which, the Four Seasons hotel in New York is one of the most beautiful and luxurious hotels in the world.
The Price Is Right
Though beauty and luxury can be subjective, the price certainly isn’t.
For only $45,000 you can enjoy one night at the Ty Warner penthouse on the 52nd floor of the Four Seasons.
If you’re wondering why it costs so much to spend a night in a room of a hotel, let us tell you that the architect I.M. Pei came out of retirement only for this project, while the construction of the penthouse cost a staggering $50 million.
The room’s surface is covered in semi-precious stones and fabrics made out of platinum and 22-carat gold. Even the bedspread is entwined with gold. The bed alone costs $65,000 and was hand-crafted in Sweden from 100% natural materials.
But enough about the materials and costs. Now you want to know exactly what do you get for $45,000. Besides being the most expensive hotel in the world, the Four Seasons also boasts the highest balconies ever, from which you can see eight different views of Manhattan.
If you think the price is a bit too steep just for sweeping views, consider that the guests of this penthouse also enjoy the luxury of a 25-hour personal butler, trainer, art concierge, and of course, a Rolls-Royse chauffeur.
So, in case you have some 50 grand to spend, make sure the Four Seasons in New York is one of your options. You will certainly get your money’s worth.
