The Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas recently introduced a two-story, 9,000-square-foot suite available for $200,000 for a minimum two-night stay.
Damien Hirst, a British contemporary artist, designed the suite that features some of his works, including two bull sharks suspended inside a formaldehyde-filled tank and a medicine cabinet packed with 12,500 cubic zirconia “pills” that resemble diamonds.
Other features of the suite include a cantilevered pool and hot tub overlooking the Las Vegas Strip, a curved bar with seating for 13 guests, a pair of lounges that double as media rooms, a salt room for therapeutic treatments, two private massage areas and an exercise room.
The suite, which has two bedrooms and two-and-a-half bathrooms, comes with a $10,000 resort credit, 24-hour butler service, chauffeured car service, and access to the hotel’s nightclubs and Pearl Theater.
The highest of high rollers – gamblers who spend at least $1 million – may get invitations to stay in the suite free of charge. Though used March 1 for a private event, the suite hasn’t had an overnight guest yet. [Los Angeles Times] – Mike Seemuth
