You’re probably used to hotel rooms where a mint on the pillow is something worth mentioning, and that’s cute. That’s really cute.
For celebrities, tycoons, and royalty, hotel rooms come with more than enough breathing room and realities of grandeur. We’re talking hot tubs, grand pianos, and top floors with some of the best views in the world.
So if you’re looking to have your mind and bank accounts blown, check out the five most expensive hotel rooms in the world and start saving.
