It’s hard for me to spend more than $100 a night on a hotel room. It doesn’t matter what city I’m in, if the room is over $100 it’s too high! Granted, being in New York City or Chicago, I have been forced to spend a little more. But I would say the most I have paid for a room is still below $200. That’s why I almost fell out of my chair when I read the rate on a night for the most expensive hotel room in the world. For what they are charging, the room better be covered in gold and I better have a servant waiting on me hand and foot. Granted, the room is more than I make in a year… so I will never stay in it. The hotel is the Hotel President Wilson in Geneva and the room is The Royal Penthouse. Yeah… some penthouse!
The suite is 18,000-square-foot… that’s bigger than most homes. My apartment is like 1,400 square-foot. What in the world do you need that much space for? Names of people have stayed there include Bill Clinton and Matt Damon, but according to the hotel staff “all are welcome”. Yeah, I bet they are! In the room (there are actually several rooms as this takes up an entire floor of the hotel) is a pool table, grand piano, and fully stocked cocktail lounge at your disposal. I wonder if you need to ask for a key to the mini bar. The view is pretty sweet too as it overlooks Lake Geneva. Did I forget to mention the 103-inch flat-screen TV?
Oh, I forgot to tell you how much the room is. ONE night at the Hotel President Wilson in The Royal Penthouse will run you… are you ready for this… $65,000.
What’s the most you have ever paid to stay in a room?
