The 12-bedroom penthouse suite takes up the entire eighth floor of the hotel and comes packed with luxury features — from the living room filled with a grand piano, billiards, and rare book collection, to the bathroom that features Hermès toiletries, and a Jacuzzi overlooking Lake Geneva.

Jewel Suite, Lotte New York Palace Hotel
Location: New York, New York
Price: $25,000 a night
Hotel treats typically mean a chocolate on your pillow or a complimentary breakfast. In this case, it's a “free” diamond ring. The aptly named Jewel Suite at the Lotte New York Palace comes with a Martin Katz diamond micro band ring worth $2,500. The suite is outfitted with cascading crystal chandeliers and a jewel-toned hot tub on a private terrace. Views of the Manhattan skyline are visible from almost any angle, so the sun is sure to shine through the windows and make guests’ new rings sparkle.

This two-story, 10,000-square-foot suite is for those who are serious about their game. It boasts a 30-by-30-foot indoor basketball court for 10 people to live out their NBA fantasies. There is also a professional locker room, electronic scoreboard, and extra-long "NBA-sized" beds. (Rumor has it that LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony have both spent the night there.)
