The 10 Most Expensive Hotel Suites in New York City

In a city with record-breaking real estate prices, lavish dinners that can cost more than a month’s rent, and both American heritage brands and international hospitality giants vying for attention, you’re bound to find luxe accommodations in spades. New York City's most ostentatious suites may be larger than the city’s average apartments, outfitted with opulent décor and serviced by a coterie of white-gloved staff, but are they worth the eye-popping price tags? We’ll let you decide.

Baccarat Suite, Baccarat Hotel

Starting rate: $18,000 per night

Want to live like a French aristocrat for a few days? The name Baccarat conjures fantasies of over-the-top French glamour and the brand’s first hotel doesn’t disappoint. Situated near MoMA, the property oozes luxury with crystal chandeliers, an enviable art collection, and coyote fur chairs. The Baccarat Suite is the hotel’s most to-die-for digs. The 1,740-square-foot suite flows like a classic Parisian apartment, from the foyer covered in toile wallpaper to the living room, dining room, media room, master bedroom, and gleaming marble bathroom. A red lacquer bar comes stocked with Ladurée macarons, premium spirits, and Baccarat crystal goblets, naturally. Smoked mirrors cleverly conceal TVs, and you can connect your device to state-of-the-art speakers via Bluetooth and control everything from the temperature to room service orders through a one-touch device. Oh, and we won't blame you for pocketing the skincare products from La Mer.

Tata Presidential Suite, The Pierre

Starting rate: $20,000 per night

This opulent grande dame on Central Park is renowned for its white-glove service and Old New York style. While the Tata Suite’s décor may not be as over-the-top as the hotel's public spaces (replete with marble floors, gilded moldings, and multi-tiered chandeliers), it still features subtly luxurious touches like damask wallpaper, Murano chandeliers, a custom silver-leaf table for eight, polished marble bathrooms with plush monogrammed robes, and artwork by Indian artists—a nod to Taj’s heritage. Fit for a maharaja, the suite has been booked by heads of state, industry tycoons, and fashion designers like Marc Jacobs. You might even share an elevator with the Pierre’s residents, who—in the past, anyway—included Elizabeth Taylor, Mohammed Al-Fayed, and Yves Saint Laurent. At 1,980 square feet, the Tata Suite is one of the smallest rooms on this list, but not to worry—for an additional fee, you can rent out the entire 39th floor to fashion a private six-bedroom apartment.

The Peninsula Suite, The Peninsula

Starting rate: $25,000 per night

From the moment your driver picks you up at the airport in one of the Peninsula’s fleet of 7-series BMWs, you’ll feel like a million bucks. The feeling continues as you enter the clubby lobby of the 1905 Beaux Arts building on Fifth Avenue and head up to the glam Peninsula Suite on the 19th floor. The palatial 3,300-square-foot space covers six rooms, including two bedrooms, an elegant living room, dining room with adjoining kitchen, and bathrooms with amenities by Oscar de la Renta. If you absolutely must work, the study with its oversize executive desk, 55-inch LED flat-screen TV, and complimentary international phone calls is the perfect place for power meetings. At night, wind down with a selection of premium liquors and a pillow menu designed to combat jet lag.

Champagne Suite, Towers, Lotte New York Palace

Starting rate: $25,000 per night

Some hotels welcome you with a bottle of champagne. The Lotte New York Palace welcomes you with a fully stocked wine cellar. And the viticulture motif doesn’t end there—it extends to the rosé and Pinot Noir color scheme in the rooms, and the shimmering crystal chandelier that evokes bubbles that rush to the top of a champagne flute. The library doubles as a tasting room, though if we were you, we’d take the private in-suite elevator to the third floor to enjoy our Dom Pérignon on the rooftop terrace—the crown on top of this 4,320-square-foot triplex suite. Needless to say, a trained sommelier is on call.

Presidential Suite, Park Hyatt New York

Starting rate: $30,000 per night

The Park Hyatt New York’s Presidential Suite is the very definition of refinement. Renowned design firm Yabu Pushelberg drew inspiration for the suite’s design from understated Upper East Side homes, incorporating plenty of bespoke touches. In fact, it’s so comfortable and homey, some guests move in for weeks at a time. The 2,239-square-foot suite boasts custom furniture, wall-to-wall stone flooring, a number of original artworks (including several pieces by Sol Lewitt), and a state-of-the-art media system and stealth TV in the bathroom mirror. Relax in the soaking tub with partial views of Central Park or shake up some cocktails at the living room's full-size wet bar (housed in a beautiful lacquered cabinet). But don't get too carried away. It's worth heading downstairs to savor an indulgent meal at Bevy, the hotel’s new restaurant with a custom light installation by Random International, the artists behind the Rain Room.

The Royal Suite, The Ritz-Carlton New York Central Park

Starting rate: $30,000 per night

With two king bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, an elegantly appointed living room, and a dining room that seats eight, the Royal Suite at the Ritz is fit for a prince. Check into the 1,980-square-foot suite and you’ll have access to the city’s biggest, most beautiful backyard: Central Park. From its perch high up on the 22nd floor, the views are spectacular, and a telescope lets you see even further. Unwind with premium movie channels on the HD TV or listen to music on the state-of-the-art Bang & Olufsen stereo system. Your room key also grants you access to the hotel’s Club Lounge, which organizes a Bloody Mary bar on Saturday mornings, caviar presentation Saturday evenings, and a range of other experiences throughout the week.

Presidential Suite, St. Regis New York

Starting rate: $35,000 per night

Gilded Age tycoon John Jacob Astor IV spared no expense when building the St. Regis in 1904, and the famously luxurious hotel carries on his legacy today. A couple of martinis at the legendary King Cole Bar and you might feel the urge to upgrade—if your credit card can handle it, that is. The price of a midsize SUV will buy you a night in the hotel's 3,430-square-foot Presidential Suite, which has hosted dignitaries and celebrities like Elizabeth Taylor. Waterford crystal chandeliers illuminate the three bedrooms, dining room, and even the master bathroom with its jacuzzi. Classic details like crown moldings give the suite a timeless elegance, while pops of fuchsia and other bright colors imbue it with some modern edge. Want to arrange an afternoon of shopping at Tiffany’s or a romantic dinner at Daniel? The hotel’s Bentley will escort you there.

Royal Suite, The Plaza

Starting rate: $40,000 per night

For a cool $40,000 per night, you can bed down at the top suite in New York’s most famous hotel, a historic landmark on Fifth Avenue. Aside from hosting a who’s who of royalty and celebrities and serving as the location for Truman Capote’s Black & White ball, the hotel has starred in several films, including Home Alone 2, Almost Famous, and American Hustle. The price tag affords plenty of space to spread out—4,500 square feet, to be exact—including three bedrooms, a formal living room with a grand piano, dining room that seats twelve, study, kitchen, private gym, ample closets, and one luxurious bathroom with mosaic walls, gold-plated faucets, and claw-foot tub. Needless to say, the hotel’s team of butlers will cater to your every whim, from filling the bathtub with oysters to organizing a helicopter ride over Central Park.

Ty Warner Penthouse Suite, Four Seasons New York

Starting rate: $50,000 per night

Sure, the nightly rate for the Four Seasons' Ty Warner Suite is what you’d spend on a year at an Ivy League university, but hey, the horsehair mattress alone is worth around $90,000, so everything is relative. Did we mention it’s covered by a bedspread woven with 22-karat gold thread? And that’s not even the suite’s coolest feature. Check in and you’ll be flying high 700 feet above Manhattan, with sprawling panoramic views, cathedral ceilings, and four glass balconies offering unparalleled vistas. Ty Warner—the Beanie Babies tycoon—called in renowned architects I.M. Pei and Peter Marino to renovate the Midtown hotel, and they went all out. Lacquered walls with mother-of-pearl inlays, works of art by sculptor Claude Lalanne worth $1.5 million, and wall-to-wall Chinese onyx in the bathroom are just a few of the highlights. For the hefty price tag, you also get unlimited massages, room service, and chauffeured rides in the hotel’s Rolls Royce. Not bad.

Penthouse Suite, Mark Hotel

Starting rate: $75,000 per night

For the measly price of a new Maserati, you can bed down in the largest hotel suite in America for a single night at The Mark. Should you have the cash to stay, you basically get your own lavish five-bedroom apartment in a landmark pre-war building on the Upper East Side, fully equipped with a professional grade kitchen, private elevator, and massive terrace with views of the Met and Central Park. Naturally, the two-story, 12,000-square-foot penthouse also has its own conservatory, palatial living room with 26-foot-high ceilings, two wet bars, a luxurious master suite with free-standing fireplace, and a sauna in one of the six bathrooms. Want a sumptuous private dinner with a custom menu by Jean-Georges? Feel like shopping at Bergdorf Goodman at midnight, when the store is closed to the public? For guests of the Mark’s Penthouse Suite, it’s a given.
