Expensive Hotel Rooms

It is good to sometimes daydream and imagine what it would be like to live a life full of endless luxuries. A life in which money was irrelevant because you had so much of it and where contact with anyone would follow a similar consistent formality of them doing their best to show you the utmost respect and admiration. Apparently, if you believe in the universal laws being reported by a growing number of people from all walks and classes in life, that it is by practicing the very actions of imagining yourself placed in the life you wish to acquire, that will eventually deliver you to succeed in achieving every one of those extravagant, amazing qualities in life that most would think of as a completely fictitious fairy tale. Well it sounds like something I would like to believe in and it is something that will lead to more positive thoughts and actions so I hope the numbers continue to grow and we all eventually reach blissful times of abundance in whatever we are looking for.

For now though, I thought it would make for an interested post if we spent a little time taking a look at some of the words most expensive hotel rooms as of 2017. Find out what are the insanely high figures that people are actually spending with hotels for the permission to lay their head down at night in a comfortable setting, and of course rise and start the next day in a way that should only lead to a day of good fortune and success. While we are on the subject of Bedrooms and comfortable surroundings, I feel like it’s a suitable time highlight a fantastic place I found online for shopping for Bedroom furniture, just in case any of you readers are looking for somewhere yourselves; the website I am referring to is The Bathrooms and More Store website. The name suggests that they focus only on Bathroom Furniture, but do not let this fool you, because if you take time to browse the inner pages of the website, you will find a section for Bedroom Furniture, and it is here that you will find some stunning, well-made bedroom furniture units and all priced very competitively. Anyway, I am digressing a bit, so I will get back to discussing the expensive hotel rooms & to help us in our basic research, we decided to go to a trusted resource that is known for covering and reporting on these types of subjects; Time Online Magazine. We knew that the list we would find being discussed within the online version of the famous Time magazine would be a reliable place to gather our intelligence on the important matter.

So, starting with the most expensive 1 night rented living space first, we dive straight into the impressive Royal Penthouse Suite in the Hotel President Wilson of Geneva. The 1 night will only set you back a modest $80,000.00!! So, for most of us it will cost the best part of the entire years’ worth of income, so that we had a place to recharge the batteries and carry on. However, if you ask me I would actually disqualify this entry from the top of the list due to the fact that the Royal Penthouse Suite actually comprises of an area that contains 12 bedrooms and 12 marble bathrooms. So I would assume that the bookings for the suite would consist of 12 couples/families or 12 single Adults, most likely enjoying the holiday of a lifetime Skiing the Swiss Alps. Either way it is not really fair to compare what is really a small hotel of its own with other entries in the list which are for the 1 extravagant room, for 1 party/couple/person. So moving on to the second entry and we find the Grand Penthouse of The Mark Hotel in New York City – overlooking Central Park. This stunning abode with incredibly high ceilings is more affordable, costing the visitor the sum of only $75,000.00 smakers! But wait, lets not get too carried away with ourselves because lo and behold, this is another sneaky entry to the list that is supposed to be for the most expensive Hotel Room. The Grand Penthouse in The Mark Hotel offers the booking group a healthy 5 bedrooms and 6 oversized bathrooms, you could probably fit an extra 50 people in the living room too. Anyway, another disqualification so we go onwards and downwards and next we are greeted by the TY Warner Penthouse, by Four Seasons Hotel in New York, with 4,300 Sq Ft of immaculately furnished and designed living space. The room on the 52nd floor of the Four Seasons Hotel was described by Architectural Digest Online Magazine as “a visual tour de force of volumetric flourishes and crafted surfaces” which is honestly a far better summary of the Penthouse than I could have ever summoned up, it simply is quite amazing, with close attention having been given to every last item placed across the 4,300 square feet. The price for such a fantastic, work of art is just 50,000 a night, so you will certainly wake up feeling a great deal lighter in the pocket and perhaps the head too (I know I would), and finally we have our winner – the room is for 3 Adults or 2 Adults and 1 child, with only 1 King Sized bed and the option of an additional ‘spare’ bed for the 3rd adult I would presume, on request. The small fortune being paid by the guest does actually get them something a little more than just the room for the night though; exclusive use of a Chauffeur driven Rolls Royce car, round the clock use of a personal guest relations manager, unlimited use of spa, fitness and massages on call. The icing on the cake for me, is the view that can be admired from the 4 cantilevered glass balconies, providing a unique view of Manhattan’s Skyline from 500 Meters up, making it the highest of its kind in the entire world.

I will leave you to take your time checking out the remaining 7 room/penthouse entries within this 2017 list of the most expensive hotel rooms in the world. I will be keeping an eye out for the review of the 2018 most expensive, luxurious or extravagant rooms and will keep you all posted. In the meantime, keep believing, picture yourself with everything and make it known that you have what it takes to succeed to the highest levels in whatever you do.

en-suite bathroom

Wouldn’t it be great if all master bedrooms came with an en-suite bathroom? For me, a master bedroom is not really a master bedroom unless it does come with its own en-suite bathroom, as this is a big part of what makes that ‘master’ bedroom so special. This is especially true if the master bedroom happens to be located in the loft area of the house; if it doesn’t have its own en-suite bathroom upstairs then it would mean the occupant/occupants would have to traverse a set of stairs, twice every time they wanted to/needed to use the bathroom. Having to go up and down a set of stairs every-time I had to use the loo would completely over-shadow the other benefits of the so called master bedroom, in my opinion.

The added luxury that one has when having an en-suite of being able to roll out of bed and go straight into the bath or shower is a big one for me, also it offers another layer of privacy for the occupant of the master bedroom. The en-suite bathroom to that master bedroom will pretty much never be used by anyone apart from the person or persons living in the master bedroom, which is a big benefit if you ask me and I am almost certain that most people would agree. Having to share a bathroom with multiple people is always a drag, even if they are family, so for this reason alone I see the en-suite as really being a necessity.

en-suite bathroom

The en-suite bathroom doesn’t need to be the top of the range, luxurious design though, as long as it has a basin unit, a mirrored wall-hung cabinet, a toilet and a shower unit then I would be happy. Just something that is good enough to offer all the essentials that one might need when using the bathroom and that is fine. The mirrored wall hung cabinet is quite an important fitting though as it is what will offer some much needed storage space, it will add light and the feeling of more space to the room and it is what the man will use when shaving and the woman will use when cleaning her face or applying some type of facial treatment or perhaps make-up. So it is worth investing in a well-made, solid oak mirrored cabinet, just like the ones you will find displayed on the Bathrooms and More Store website – which is actually a great place to shop online for pretty much all your home furniture. If you take your time to browse around their online shop, you will find that they have something for every room of the home and also what they have is all top quality, made to last furniture, so you will be investing in something that will be well worth it.

 

At the time of decorating our home we have many things in mind (budget, space available, functionality, comfort …), but there is something that most of us usually follow above all. We are talking about the trends that always serve to have an updated house.

Among the most outstanding trends in decoration 2018 it should be mentioned that this season minimalism is still the king of interior design.

These materials manage to create clean, orderly and very warm spaces, in addition to adding to the trend of ecological and sustainable fashion that is so strong in recent years in fashion and society.

 

On the other hand, it will become more fashionable to reuse furniture and decorative objects (old ladders, cages, old windows …).

In addition, furniture made from recyclable materials such as walnut, oak, cherry, beech or pine is made. It is also important that you keep in mind that upholstery is trend.

 

Regarding the trend colors, this year what will take most will be the fresh and cheerful combinations of strong tones with other lighter tones (browns with greens, grays with reds …).

Of course, do not forget that the emerald green color is fashionable and, therefore, it is usual that this year you find walls painted with this tone as well as decorative objects or even furniture that are made with this color.
