£15,000 a night?

This is not a joke. This is a true rate if you want to stay one night at Ty Warner Penthouse on the 52nd floor of the Four Seasons Hotel, that standard-bearer of discreet wealth and impeccable taste in mid-Manhattan.

Checking in costs nearly £15,000 a night – hardly a bargain compared to the next most expensive contenders: the Imperial Suite at the Hotel President Wilson in Geneva (£11,500) and the Presidential Suite at the Martinez in Cannes (£9,000).

Why is so expensive?

It's because you will get the best views of the city – and, whether it’s to your taste or not, a symphony of Italian marble, Venetian velvet and Han Dynasty vases turned into table lamps. Let’s not forget the perks, either: a butler, exclusive use of a chauffeur-driven Rolls-Royce and all the free booze you can drink.
