5. Suite 5000 at the Mandarin Oriental — $36,000/night
The Mandarin Oriental is a well-known hotel that rests in the heart of Manhattan. The hotel is known for its vast view that overlooks Central Park.

This 3,300 square-foot three bedroom suite can marvel many penthouse setups. The room has a media center that is stocked with highly NYC-centric films, and the sound systems are absolutely remarkable. This is not a listed accommodation on the company’s website, meaning that you will have to call in a reservation to reserve this exceptional suite.
4. Royal Suite at the Ritz-Carlton — $40,000.night
The Ritz-Carlton has long been recognized as one of the premier luxury hotels in the world, so it should come as no surprise that it landed a room on this list.

2. Ty Warner Penthouse Suite at the Four Seasons — $50,000/night
