A Weekend at This Luxury Hotel Costs More Than a Typical House

As of July 2019, the average price of a hotel room in the United States was $135 a night.

Renting a hotel room in a large metropolitan city costs $236 a night on the average. An elite, upscale hotel room in New York City costs about $327 a night.

Even the more affordable budget hotel chains, such as America’s Best Value Inn, can run $75 a night.

Still, perspective is everything. Just imagine trying to rent the most expensive hotel room in the world, for some reason called The Empathy Suite.

The suite is a two-story “sky villa” in the Fantasy Tower of the Palms Casino Resort just off the Las Vegas Strip. A stay costs $100,000 a night.

The mandatory minimum stay is two nights, so that’s $200,000, about the median cost of a home in the United States.

The Empathy Suite has two stately bedrooms, a bar that accommodates 13, 2.5 bathrooms and 24-hour on-call butler service. Additionally, there is a private chauffeured car service and $10,000 credit for use on the grounds of the Palms Casino Resort.

Room to spare

The Suite has more than 9,000 square feet of space over two floors, more than three times the size of a three-bedroom home. Up to 52 people can be entertained in the suite.

The interior aesthetics and decor of the Empathy Suite was designed by contemporary artist Damien Hirst. There are six Hirst art pieces and installations within the Suite.

Art pieces created by Hirst are scattered throughout the suite. The art routinely features Hirst’s signature and stylized spiral patterns and butterflies.

The swimming pool features Hirst-inspired butterfly art and is bordered by see-through walls that overlook Las Vegas Boulevard. Also, the gray marble grand bathroom features Hirst’s butterfly art emblems inlaid in the stone.

The previous title for the most expensive hotel room in the world was held by the Royal Penthouse Suite at the Hotel President Wilson in Geneva, Switzerland.

A stay there runs a meager $80,000 a night.
