  1. Nice list – but maybe missing a couple…
    The Rosewood Hong Kong’s Harbour House+Garden House is more expensive than everything upto the top 3 if including the entire floor as a Presidential Villa, and just the (3-bedroom) Harbour House would come in in the top 10 as well.

    Obviously specialty villas like Amanyara’s or Amanpuri’s top range stuff as well – but maybe not considering those as ‘hotel rooms’ would sneak into top 10 especially during high/peak season rates?

  2. Hi what about Seychelles island hotel they’re one of the best in the world’s because I have worked in the hotel industry for over 41yrs has a Managing director,I left and open my own business as an consultants I hope to hear from you soon regards

  3. I read that Station Casinos is considering closing 4 of their Vegas properties, including the Palms. So everyone hurry up and book that room while you still can! Thanks for the only tour of those rooms I will ever have… the virtual kind! Very interesting!
