Ty Warner Penthouse Suite, Four Seasons
New York City, New York
Named for hotelier Ty Warner, the Penthouse Suite at the Four Seasons is a theatrical set piece writ true—a silvery MGM classic depicting Manhattan as an Art Deco jewel, starring Cary Grant, Irene Dunne, and you. You’ll have plenty of space to swan about, and memorable touches include a library wrapped in lacquered panels, a Zen Room waterfall, and a Bösendorfer grand piano. With 25-foot cathedral ceilings and glass balconies, this Manhattan aerie soars above everything around it, including Central Park. Nightly room rates start at $40,000.

Shahi Mahal Presidential Suite, The Raj Palace
It won’t even be fully renovated until October 2014—some 12 years after the project was begun—yet this ethereal suite of rooms already feels like the return of the maharajahs. Will the floors and walls of its private spa really be sheathed in 24-karat gold? At these prices, they’d better be. Nightly room rates start at $45,000.

Royal Penthouse Suite, Hôtel Président Wilson
The understated elegance on display here is almost teeth-achingly exquisite, but with 12 rooms and 18,000 square feet of space, you’ll find plenty of nooks and crannies where you can let loose. At $65,000 a night, the Royal Penthouse Suite is at the top end of our scale, with a Steinway piano to noodle around on and a massive terrace overlooking Lake Geneva. Bulletproof glass provides peace of mind. It’s so tastefully done, so un-Trumplike, in fact, that there’s no over-the-top opulence to sneer at. It’s the kind of luxurious comfort that practically purrs.
