How much are you willing to pay for a jaw-droppingly luxurious hotel accommodation?

A few hundred dollars perhaps? Maybe more than $1,000 per night on a special occasion?

Among those for whom money is no object (think: Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos or perhaps Bill Gates), the sky is the limit, and Mark Hotel obviously knows that very well.

The New York City hotel is home to the most expensive suite in America, according to Bloomberg.

The price-tag? A mind-boggling $75,000 per night.

Yes, more than the average American’s salary.

The iconic Upper East Side Mark Hotel dates back to 1927 and today is home to a Frederic Fekkai salon and the Jean-Georges restaurant. It’s also a popular hangout for celebs en route to the Met Ball each year.

But back to that $75,000 penthouse. It takes up the hotel’s 16th and 17th floor and is a massive 10,000 square feet (or about the size five average American homes).

Designed by the Grange, the suite includes five bedrooms, four fireplaces, six bathrooms and two wet bars. The living room meanwhile, features 26-foot ceilings and is spacious enough to serve as a full-size grand ballroom. And did we mention the rooftop terrace overlooking Central Park? It’s 2,500-square-feet. (Again, bigger than the average American home).

Bloomberg noted that this opulent penthouse is not new. But this is the first time it has been available to rent. It has never been publicized or even listed on the New York City hotel's website as it had been rented as an apartment by one family immediately upon being completed and the family stayed for 16 months.

Let’s all do the math on that, shall we? Spread $75,000 over 16 months and you’re looking at about $36 million.

Before at least some of us collectively faint, the hotel manager said the family got a reduced rate because of their desired length of stay. Perhaps they paid just a few million dollars. No big deal.

“We have heads of state, very wealthy business people, and celebrities renting this space,” hotel general manager Olivier Lordonnois told Bloomberg.
