Grand Penthouse at The Mark, NYC

Starting rate: $75,000 per night

For just the price of a measly four-year college education, you can bed down at The Mark's Grand Penthouse for a single night. The palatial 12,000-square-foot space – which encompasses the entirety of the building's 16th and 17th floors – caters primarily to an elite clientele of A-list celebs and international billionaires, but should you have some cash burning a hole in your pocket, take a look. The extravagant suite is broken into five bedrooms, six bathrooms, a private library and conservatory, grandiose ballroom, 24-seater dining room, and 2,500-square foot roof terrace with unrivaled Central Park views. The hotel brought in French interior designer Jacques Grange to spruce up the space with his and her bathrooms, white oak flooring, mint-green dressing rooms, a grand piano, and Miele and Gaggena kitchen appliances. Should you need help working them, three-star Michelin chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten is at your disposal.
