$30,000 US dollars per night, must be a typo we thought…they must have certainly meant per month and not per night!…How wrong we were!

US$35,000 is what most Americans earn in a year, but for some lucky few, that amount of money is pocket change.
If I had money to burn, would I spend it on any of these expensive hotels on this top 10 list?
Absolutely, the once in a lifetime experience would be worth every penny!
It’s just not a single hotel room that you get at this price point…
Most of these expensive hotels on this count-down, come with an entire floor penthouse suite, that usually comes included with your own personal chef, butler, maid and private swimming pool…
