Tackiest hotel room on the planet

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Last July, I tucked aside an interesting link entitled “Take This Tour Of The World’s Most Expensive Hotel Room” featuring the “Empathy Suite” at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas. It is considered the most extravagant, luxurious, and certainly the most expensive hotel suite on the planet.

At 9,000 square feet, it is effectively a two-story mansion in the sky, encompassing the 34th and 35th floors of the casino resort. It costs $100,000 per night, with a two-night minimum.

You can’t just book this hotel suite. You must apply, after which the hotel staff will do its due diligence to make sure you can afford it. Perks include a 24-hour on-call butler, chauffeured car service, and a bartender.

The rooms feature original art pieces by artist Damien Hirst, whose focus in this suite is centered on two themes: butterflies and medicine. Yes really.

The first Hirst art piece you see walking into the suite is … a medicine cabinet.

See how artfully the items are arranged with dazzling color coordination? Isn’t it lovely?

But my favorite part was the hotel room’s bar.

Looks classy, right? Until you see what the bar top features:

Medical waste. Yes, you read that right: The bar top features medical waste. Not, we are hastily assured, used medical waste, but medical waste just the same. When we saw this, both Don and I cracked up laughing.

This feature, folks, is what made me realize having money does NOT necessarily translate to having class.

Putting aside the preponderance of pill-themed wallpaper…

…the most pervasive artistic feature of the various rooms are butterflies.

Personally I think all these butterflies are better suited to a teenage girl’s bedroom, and the medical waste is just plain creepy, so now you can guess what kind of art cretin I am.

The most notable feature of the suite is the balcony swimming pool, cantilevered out from the building 34 stories up. Kinda spiffy if you’re not afraid of heights. It is unfortunately strewn with more teenage-girl butterflies, but the view is pretty cool.

Go watch the video. It’s very interesting, and it leaves you with a profound sense of gratitude that you’re not so wealthy that you can spend a minimum of $200,000 to be surrounded by butterflies and medical waste.

      The advantage of using glass in an interior is the ability to refract light. This feature contributes to the fact that the room not only becomes brighter, but also visually expands. … Transparent elements of the interior allow you to avoid the impression that the room is cluttered, while clearly dividing the space into zones.
      But the picture of the pool tickled my nerves. I don’t know how safe and durable it is.

      There are different types of glasses. And I am sure that mega durable glass is used in the interior of the hotel. There are special technologies for the manufacture of such glasses.
      I installed glass partitions and a glass door for swimming pool in the pool of our house. With the help of Kova Partitions specialists we have chosen the most durable and stylish option for partitions. The Kova Partitions team did all the editing work for this. It looks cool! Especially in winter when it is warm inside and I am swimming in the pool and outside the window is snow
