The Most Expensive Hotel Rooms in the World 2008

Okay, so in the spirit of "fab travel" I wanted to do a little research and find out about the classiest, most luxurious, most expensive hotels in the world. There's some jaw-dropping stuff out there! Here's what I found:

Ty Warner Penthouse, Four Seasons, New York; $34,000 per night

Covering the entire 52nd floor of the luxury hotel, this suite includes a grand piano, rock-crystal sinks and a dressing room. With cantilevered glass balconies and floor-to-ceiling bay windows, set beneath 25-foot (7.6-metre) cathedral ceilings, the Ty Warner Penthouse offers a breathtaking 360-degree view of all Manhattan.

Royal Penthouse Suite, President Wilson Hotel, Geneva; $33,000 per night

Not much is known about the Royal Penthouse, largely because the hotel staff is reluctant to publicize it. One insider said the suite is almost exclusively reserved for heads of state and celebrities. The hotel overall, though, is considered the peak of classic luxury. Note: this is a picture of the BATHROOM.

The Presidential Suite, Hotel Cala di Volpe, Costa Smeralda, Italy; $21,000 per night

The suite comprises three bedrooms, three bathrooms, and an outdoor saltwater swimming pool. The hotel charges $42,000 a night during July and August. Now if that doesn't say luxury travel, I don't know what does.

Royal Suite, Burj Al Arab, Dubai; $18,000 per night

The extraordinary Burj Al Arab has become one of the world’s most instantly recognizable hotels with its billowing sail-like structure stretching out on an artificial island into the Gulf of Arabia. The 780 sq/metre Royal Suite on the 25th floor has a marble and gold staircase, leopard print carpets, its own private lift and a rotating four-poster canopy bed – and of course extraordinary views across the ever rising skyline of Dubai and out to the Gulf of Arabia.

Penthouse Suite, Hotel Martinez, Cannes; $9,300 per night

This expensive luxury resort is comprised of 500 sq/metre apartments include include a sitting room, dining room, two bedrooms, two bathrooms with Turkish bath, shower, and spa bath, dressing room and sauna. But the real wow-factor of the penthouse suites is two 200 sq/metre private terraces overlooking the Bay of Cannes. During the Cannes Film Festival the Penthouse Suites go up to $48,000 a night.

Coral Suite, Four Seasons Resort Punta Mita, Mexico, Cost per night: $15,000

You know you’re traveling in the fab lane when you have your own butler. The coral suite has five-bedrooms, an oversized patio with a wraparound pool, a gym with a 42-inch plasma television, a spa room and a theater with reclining leather seats and a 92-inch screen with digital surround sound. As far as luxury resorts in Mexico go, this is the cream of the crop.

This 15,000-square-foot suite is made up of six buildings built over the water. It has two master bedrooms with circular glass showers that are accessed via walkways through a private garden. The bathtubs are out on their own decks along with day beds for lounging, and the private spas have saunas, massage pavilions and gyms. Oh yeah, and you have two personal assistants.
