Finding the perfect hotel suite is essential for a visit to New York City. Give your masses of Instagram followers something to coo over — and travel like a true Bravolebrity — by checking into one of the most outrageously exclusive suites in a town known for them.
1. The Mark
Opening just this past fall, the Mark’s lavish penthouse suite became not only the most expensive hotel room in New York City, but in the whole world. At $75,000 per night, the five-bedroom pad makes Geneva’s Hotel President Wilson and its $67,000 12-bedroom suite look like a steal in comparison. And the superlatives don’t stop there, at 12-000 square feet, the Jacques Grange-designed bilevel suite is also the biggest in the country. It even has its own conservatory, as well as five bedrooms, six baths, two powder rooms, a library lounge, a dining room, and, crucially, a 2,400-square-foot rooftop terrace from where you can survey the less fortunate masses below with a chilled glass of champagne in hand.
2. Four Seasons New York
The Mark’s new suite bumped poor Four Seasons New York’s Ty Warner Penthouse down into second place. Still, at $55,000 per night, it’s still not to be sniffed at. Named for the man who made his billions from Beanie Babies toys and bought the hotel in 1999, the suite covers the entire 52nd floor. The hotel declares it “less a suite, and more a multi-layered work of art,” and, after seeing its Asian-inspired gilded furnishings, cantilevered glass balconies and floor-to-ceiling windows offering 360 views of the entire island of Manhattan, you might be tempted to agree.
3. St. Regis
Fully renovated in late 2013, the St. Regis New York offers its 3,340-square-foot, 16th-floor Presidential Suite for $35,000 a night. So, what exactly do you get for laying down more than the average American’s annual salary? We know there are three bedrooms, four bathrooms, a dining room and a library, but besides that, the St. Regis keeps specific details close to its chest. We will just have to imagine, or, better, book.
4. The Plaza
Perhaps New York’s most fabled hotel, the Plaza offers a suite experience befitting its reputation — and fit for a King. Inspired by the ambiance of the royal court of Louis XV, the three-bedroom, three-bathroom Royal Plaza Suite overlooks Fifth Avenue and the Pulitzer Fountain, and will set you back $30,000 a night. The hotel describes the suite as “ideal for guests who travel with a personal chef,” who can host a party of twelve in the dining room after dinner is prepared in the state-of-the-art kitchen.
5. Lotte New York Palace
The swanky New York Palace has not one, but two opulent suites in its luxurious hotel within a hotel, the Towers. Both the Champagne Suite and the Jewel Suite clock in at 5,000 square feet and cost $25,000 a night... or $250,000 a month if you really like them. Crystal chandeliers and rich, Art Deco-influenced design details feature prominently in both, and amenities include car service and terrace spas. Those staying in the Katz-designed Jewel Suite even get their own Martin Katz Diamond Microband Ring as a souvenir.
