The World’s Most Expensive Hotel Suite is located at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, a $100,000-per-night stay-ups the ante of luxury hospitality with a first-of-its-kind villa.
In collaboration with award-winning architecture firm Bentel & Bentel, Damien Hirst is redefining the Las Vegas luxury experience with a newly-designed Palms Casino Resort suite that breaks nearly all barriers of traditional extravagance. So, what makes it the World’s Most Expensive Hotel Suite?
Start with 9,000 square feet and two stories worth of space. Then imbue every corner with original Damien Hirst designs, showcase six of his original works, include a 24-hour butler service, throw in some over-the-top welcome amenities, add a private art tour, chauffeured car service, a $10,000 resort credit and more.
Welcome to the Empathy Suite. As the first of its kind to house a collection of contemporary art at this scale, the Empathy Suite speaks to the cultural intersection of art and hospitality as much as it does to the indulgence of luxury excess.
Enter the “villa,” where you will be greeted by Winner/Loser, Hirst’s iconic work featuring two bull sharks suspended in formaldehyde. From there, make your way into the main floor’s expansive hangout areas, with soaring ceilings and a futuristic-style architecture that sets the stage for the magnificence of each respective room.
A curved bar on the first floor was created by Hirst, which he filled with medical waste to juxtapose the various pill cabinets on display throughout the rest of the villa. The bar is flanked by two lounge and media areas, with a theater that accommodates up to 52 guests.
Hanging directly above the bar is Hirst’s Here for a Good Time, Not a Long Time (2018), which includes one vitrine of a marlin skeleton, and another with a taxidermy marlin. In addition to Hirst’s original artwork, newly designed furniture and textiles can be found throughout the suite. From bespoke furniture to custom millwork to embroidered carpets and more, Hirst’s signature spin designs, butterflies, and pharmacy motifs make their mark from the bathroom to the massage rooms and everywhere in between.
