5 Most Ourageously Expensive Hotels

All of you probably dreamed of spending the night in an obscenely expensive hotel room, filled with tasteful decorations, amazing room service and a superb view. Some of you probably even have the money for it, but most of us don’t. The following list will probably be a good start if you ever win the lottery or you don't mind selling your house so that you can spend a few days feeling like a king or queen. 

The Ritz-Carlton, Moscow, Russia

If you are traveling to beautiful Moscow and you want to check in a high end hotel, the lovely Ritz Carlton will probably suit your taste. Situated on Tverskaya Street 3, you can check out the hotel while you are on a stroll through the Red Square. The most expensive suite is about $18,000 per night but the view is certainly worth it as the 2550 square feet room features floor to ceiling windows facing the Kremlin, Red Square, St. Basil's Cathedral and Christ the Savior Cathedral. Besides that, you get everything you would expect in a high end hotel and more: a grand piano and dining area, a library, an office room and a boardroom. The bathrooms come with opulent marble baths with separate rain showers and a private sauna. The room is definitely designed to accommodate even the pickiest customers with its non-allergenic foam pillows and access to the Club Lounge with five daily food and beverage presentations.
If you don’t want a suite, you can definitely go for the most luxurious room, the 680 square feet executive room with a really calming Japanese garden atrium view. The spacious studio suite partly separates the bed area from the elegant seating area and it’s decorated with fine woods and fabrics. Even the marble baths are outstanding.
