Other extras include 24-hour butler service, a chauffeured car, and a $10,000 casino credit.
Not only is the Palms Casino Resort Las Vegas an art haven for its guests, but it’s also located just 1.2 miles from the Las Vegas strip. Meaning you are a short walk from the colorful heartbeat of Vegas that draws in so many of its visitors.
If you are still after luxury in Vegas but don’t want to blow $100,000 per night at the most expensive hotel in the world then check out the Bellagio Las Vegas. Which will also give you the royal treatment with a slightly lower price tag.
If your heart is set on the Palms, other suites on offer include bowling alleys and even basketball courts in the $15,000 – $20,000 price range. Or you could opt for one of the hotel’s standard rooms that will only set you back about $60 a night.
Next up on the list as the second most expensive hotel room in the world is the Royal Penthouse Suite at the Hotel President Wilson in Geneva. You’ll be coughing up $80,000 per night to stay in this dreamy accommodation with panoramic views of Lake Geneva and Mont Blanc.

The 18,000 square feet pad has 12 bedrooms, a Steinway grand piano, billiard table, lake-facing jacuzzi, and telescope for star-gazing. These luxuries can be accessed via your private elevator that allows direct access to the chambers.
But wait there’s more, you can also have the private chef whip you up any meal you want as well as a personal assistant to help manage your admin. They can even help you extend your trip and try out some more luxury hotels in Switzerland.
With everything you could ever dream up waiting in the suite for you, including Hermes products in the bathroom, you won’t want to leave. But if you do happen to want to venture out, the indulgent La Mer Spa isn’t a bad place to spend your day.
