Have you ever thought about spending the night in one of the best and most expensive hotels in the world but had no idea how much that may cost? Don’t get too excited; the hotels on this list are so opulent that the cost per night might as well astrange you. The wealthy and elite can only stay at a number of hotels around the world, according to a recent analysis from Merchant Cash Advance. According to reports, the business loaner used a seedlist of hotels from around the globe and then looked up the average hotel prices to determine which restaurants and meals were the priciest.
Meanwhile, private islands and palaces are undoubtedly more expensive places to stay, but they are the accommodations that are easily accessible to those in the know and with the means to support them. These hotels are the cream of the crop, offering everything from opulent penthouse apartments, submarine excursions, and the finest resorts and villas.
