You could spend next to nothing on a hotel room and have a great time, or you could blow your life savings on a night in the most expensive hotel suite in existence. A lot of people are intrigued by the second idea, if not for the expense—which can range from $150,000 to $10,000 per night—then at least for the spectacle. If that sounds like you, then this is your guide to the most outrageously expensive hotels in the world.
30. The St. Regis New York
The St. Regis New York is a luxury hotel located in Midtown Manhattan. It’s one of the most expensive hotels I’ve ever stayed at (and I’ve stayed in some pretty nice ones).
The room at St. Regis includes all of your basic needs: Wi-Fi, cable TV, and a comfy bed with pillows and linens that make you feel like you’re sleeping on clouds. But if you’re going to pay $3,000 per night for your stay (which is what they charge on average), then it would be nice if the staff was more welcoming and accommodating when asking questions about services or amenities available during your stay.
29. The Westbury
The Westbury is a luxury hotel located in Westbury, New York. It is owned by Hilton and was first opened in 1925 as the Waldorf Astoria Hotel. The building has changed hands several times, but the name has remained the same.

The name was changed to New York Central Building when it emerged from bankruptcy in 1930; however, upon its purchase by Donald Trump in 1995 (and subsequent renovation), it became known as Trump International Hotel & Tower New York before being renamed again as The Plaza Hotel & Tower NYC after its sale back to Trump through an off-market deal with Sahara Group in 2017.
27. The Plaza Hotel
