What would you do if you won $100,000? Here’s one option: spend it all in one night at the most expensive hotel room in the United States.
Let me repeat: one night at the Empathy Suite at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas will set you back $100,000. The suite sits two stories high at the top of the Palms, with 9000 square feet of space inside. Amenities include a salt relaxation room (what is that?), a home gym, and an infinity-style Jacuzzi overlooking the Las Vegas Strip.
Also, the suite comes with a 24-hour butler service, which feels absolutely fair for a $100,000 hotel room.
The suite is reserved for million-dollar poker players at the casino, and it includes $10,000 worth of credit to the Palms resort. Guests have to book the suite for a minimum of two nights.
So what does a $100,000 hotel room look like inside? It was designed by artist Damien Hirst.
The space is filled with his daring works of art. There is a 13-seat curved bar filled with medical waste, for example, plus a sculpture with two bull sharks suspended in formaldehyde. Damien’s signature butterflies are above the California king bed.
One of the perks? $10,000 in resort credit.
Before the Palms unveiled this suite, the most expensive hotel room in the US was at The Mark hotel for $75,000 a night.
Pft – $75k? Lame.
