A large pill cabinet filled with diamonds? Two bull sharks suspended in formaldehyde? That’s all part of the eccentric art adorning the 9,000 Sq. Ft. two-story Empathy Suite at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas. The man behind the masterpiece is none other than world renowned artist Damien Hirst. The unique art flows from indoor living space to the outdoors. Step out on the balcony and take a dip in the mosaic tiled cantilevered pool overlooking the Las Vegas Strip while watching the lesser privileged saunter through Sin City. In addition to conversational art, your digs entitle you to chauffeured car service, A- list access to the Palm’s premier amenities such as KAOS Day club and the Palms world-class recording studio. You’ll also receive a $10,000 resort credit; in case you want to try to win back a bit of your investment. A stay at the world’s most expensive hotel accommodations starts at $100,000 and requires a minimum of a two-night stay. But, don’t get too excited. Even if you can afford a couple of nights in the appropriately dubbed Empathy Suite, the room is reserved exclusively for million-dollar casino players. And the 24-hour butler service? That’s included too.

When it comes to glitz and glam, Miami doesn’t fall short. Nor does the Penthouse Suite at Faena Hotel in Miami Beach. Sure, sparkling blue waters and white sand beaches are a dime a dozen in the Magic City, but not every hotel offers ocean views through floor to ceiling windows in space that blurs the lines between indoor and outdoor living space. Staying true to the city’s art deco roots (with a hint of Parisian glam), hotelier Alan Faena joined forces with award-winning costume designer Catherine Martin and director Baz Luhrman (que Moulin Roughe) to create the dazzling décor. Aside from 14,000 Sq. Ft. of living space, the Penthouse Suite dons a personal butler, state-of-the-art chef’s kitchen, interesting yet edible creations from the art of Damien Hirst and a did we mention insta worthy views?
While the most expensive hotel suites in the world come with over the top amenities and hefty price tag, they come with one more thing. Bragging rights.
