Most Expensive Digs in USA :: Four Seasons, New York

Coming in at #1 is the Ty Warner (the billionaire maker of Beanie Babies) penthouse at manhattan’s Four Seasons which cost $50-million to construct, and was designed by acclaimed architect I.M. Pei, Peter Marino, and Ty Warner even put in his two cents worth. If you’re thinking of sleeping over, plan on spending $34,000 for the night. The “room” takes over the whole 52nd floor of the Four Seasons and is filled with commissioned artwork, hand-crafted furniture, an enormous library with its own grand piano, and it even has a relaxing waterfall in the “Zen” room for chilling out after dealing with the riff-raff below.

Just a few of the other niceties include an infinity soaking tub that overlooks Central Park, a flat screen television that looks more like a movie screen, a fireplace, huge open floor plans with marble, granite, gold, and other expensive materials, and guests have full access to spa treatments, a personal trainer and a private butler who are all on-call 24/7, your own private chauffer who will take you around the town in a Maybach or Rolls Royce and a reservation at the hotel’s 5-star L’Atelier de Joel Robuchon restaurant.

    Haven’t seen it, but have seen the Presidential Suite at the Mandarin Oriental at Columbus Circle. [Had clients staying there and I happened to be in NYC too so we met there.] The hotel is stunning, modern Asian and the suite is not overdone at all. Views are killer as the hotel doesn’t even start until the 50th something floor.

    And a word for the smart spender: suggest you book your luxury hotels through a top travel agency that has a relationship with that hotel. For instance my clients didn’t actually pay for that suite though they could have. They paid for a must lower suite, but becuase of an overbooking and because we worked closely with them they got moved up. Happens all the time!
