The world's most expensive hotel room doubles as an art gallery.
Featuring work by world-renowned - and oftentimes controversial - contemporary artist Damien Hirst, the Empathy Suite at the Palms Casino Resort is now available for booking. At $100,000 per night, the Empathy Suite tops last year's high-ranking Royal Penthouse Suite at the President Wilson Hotel; the Geneva hotel charged $80,000 per night for its top accommodation.Read more: The world's 10 most expensive hotel suites
The two-bedroom, 2.5-bath villa features several original installations by Hirst.
Hirst is known for boundary-pushing collections, ranging from formaldehyde preservations to carefully arranged pill bottles. In 2017, his work filled the Palazzo Grassi and the Punta della Dogana in Venice, two art museums funded by billionaire art collector François Pinault.
The Empathy Suite was formerly known as the Hugh Hefner Suite, and in 2012, CNN Travel ranked the suite No. 5 on a list of most expensive hotel rooms. Originally $40,000 per night, the new luxury renovations have spurred a $60,000 price increase.
All six of Palms' sky villas were renovated as a part of $690 million upgrade to the hotel, which was first established in 2001 and is now owned by the Fertitta brothers of Station Casino. Other villas range from $25,000 to $50,000 a night.
