Sin City is now home to the world’s most expensive hotel room. Unveiled on March 1, the new Empathy Suite at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas costs $100,000 a night. Among its over-the-top features is a pool that juts out high above the strip and two bull sharks suspended in formaldehyde beside a game room. Designed by British artist Damien Hirst, the two-story, 9,000-square-foot suite requires a two-night minimum stay, so guests won’t make it out of there without dropping at least $200,000 (or spending $1 million on the casino floor). The suite also features a 13-seat curved bar. Hanging above it are Hirst’s “Here for a Good Time, Not a Long Time” work, and two glass display cases, containing the skeleton of a marlin fish and a taxidermic marlin. A lounge and media area can accommodate up to 52 people. The suite includes extras such as 24-hour butler service, a chauffeured car, a private behind-the-scenes art tour, VIP access to entertainment venues and a $10,000 resort credit.

For comparison, the Royal Penthouse Suite at the Hotel President Wilson in Geneva starts at $80,000 a night. The Grant Penthouse Suite at The Mark in New York City, where Meghan Markle had her baby shower, is $75,000 a night. The Palms is now on the verge of completing a $690 million renovation that will also result in new restaurants and bars as well as a swimming pool with a 65-foot Hirst-designed statue as its centerpiece. The property’s public spaces are sprinkled with other pieces of fine art by Andy Warhol, Jean-Michel Basquiat and others.
