New York’s Most Extraordinary Hotel Room (arguably!)

What could make a hotel room worth €50,000 per night? The perfect mattress? Views to die for? Extra pillows? How about 17 different kinds of pillows, a screening room or a private glass elevator?
The Ty Warner Penthouse offers 360° floor-to-ceiling views of New York.

If you’re looking for the ultimate luxury experience in New York, try the Ty Warner Penthouse at the Four Seasons, named after the toy tycoon who brought Beanie Babies to the world. No expense has been spared here. The penthouse cost almost €45 million to build and took seven years to complete.The Ty Warner Penthouse is the city’s highest hotel suite – both in terms of altitude (244m above street level) and room rate (€43,000 per night). New York is the city that never sleeps. But you won’t be disturbed by street noise as you lay your head on the 18th century Japanese silk pillows and wrap yourself in bed sheets woven with 22-carat gold thread.

The 400 sqm space offers 360° floor-to-ceiling views of the city, as well as four glass terraces – and there’s plenty to do if you fancy a night in. Tickle the ivories on the grand piano, unwind to the sound of the waterfall in the Zen meditation room or browse through a private library stacked with volumes on art and culture. In need of refreshment? Call the butler and take advantage of unlimited complimentary Cristal champagne and caviar.

If a night out on the town is more your style, just ride down in the private elevator. A chauffeur-driven Rolls Royce will be standing by to whisk you around the city.

The suite is only occupied for around 25% of the year, so booking shouldn’t be a problem.
