In this first installment of 'Lap of Luxury,' FOX 5 Business reporter Alison Morris goes inside the New York Palace Hotel and The Champagne Suite.
David Arnold, senior vice president and publishing director of luxury magazine Robb Report, says the Champagne Suite is one of the largest hotel suites in all of Manhattan. The 5,000-square-foot triplex apartment has 15 rooms, including a dressing room the size of most New York City apartments. Thirsty? There's a champagne cave stocked with Dom Perignon. But the piece de resistance, according to Arnold, is the third floor which has a study with a real fireplace, and a spectacular terrace with its own hot tub that boasts breathtaking views of the city. Cost: $25,000 a night.
The Champagne Suite at The New York Palace ranks among the best hotel rooms in the world.
Robb Report recently reviewed 14 of the most elite suites in Europe and they also offer amenities like no other.
The Shangri La in Paris, has spectacular views of the Eiffel Tower from every room, including the terrace. Arnold calls it a relative bargain, for what they're offering in Paris, at $25,000 a night.
The uber private Apartment at The Connaught in London is $19,000 a night. It has its own private entrance, elevator, butler, and gym.
The Majestic Suite at the Hotel Majestic Barriere in Cannes boasts a spectacular infinity pool with an ocean view for around $27,000. Swim on the rooftop terrace and watch life unfold on the French Riviera.
According to Robb Report, the crown jewel is The Royal Penthouse Suite at the Hotel President Wilson in Geneva. It's a sprawling 18,000-square-foot suite with an additional 18,000-square-foot terrace. The 12 rooms and 12 bathrooms along the shores of Lake Geneva cost a whopping $85,000 a night.
