Peek Inside This US$100,000/Night Hotel Suite That Looks Like An Art Exhibition
By Izza Sofia, 10 Mar 2019
Damien Hirst has created what could possibly be the poshest hotel room in the world. Hirst is the UK’s richest artist, as well as its most glamorous, and it is not hard to see why.
Be enthralled by the ‘Empathy Suite’, which is part of a US$690 million renovation of the Palms, a legendary casino located in Las Vegas. The magnificent hotel has undergone extensive renovations to feature a 9,000-square-foot double-storied villa on its rooftop.
The rooftop villa spotlights several of Hirst’s signature artworks, and has been touted to be the first hotel of its kind to feature contemporary art within its room compounds.
Hirst partnered with architectural firm Bentel & Bentel in a unique collaboration, which features a cantilevered pool that overlooks the scenic city. Here, the artist took the opportunity to display six of his signature artworks, including butterfly motifs on gloss-painted canvases and two sharks that have been frozen in formaldehyde.
Hirst also adorned the room with customized furniture coupled with intricate, elegant fabrics. The room also features its own 13-seater bar, which comes with used medical equipment and two vitrines in the center, one holding a marlin skeleton and the other a taxidermied one.
Once you are done admiring the magnificent artwork, proceed to rest your soul on any of the gigantic California king beds in each of the villa’s two master bedrooms. The villa is designed to house up to 52 people, and includes a media theater, a lounge and a nine-seater dining table.
If you have US$200,000 ready for a two-night stay, or over US$1 million worth of casino credits, and are ready to enjoy an experience of a lifetime, head down to the Palms for this one-of-a-kind suite villa—or castle in the air.
