Excelsior Hotel Gallia, Milan
Our mission to live beautifully knows no bounds, so when it comes to splendid stays, you’ll want to check in to one of these over-the-top penthouse suites. These luxury hotel penthouses are the cream of the crop; some come with a personal butler or chef, others include their own private library. But the one thing they all have in common is that they’re truly the best of the best.
ROYAL BRIDGE SUITE AT ATLANTIS – The Palm, Dubai
This lush Sultan’s palace sits 22 stories in the sky, majestically overlooking the streets of Dubai. The 10,000-square-foot space is opulent in every detail from its 22-karat-gold bathroom to its private elevator entrance. The three-bedroom suite includes a private library, games, media center and massage room, along with two complimentary massages and two personal training sessions with each booking. Too tired to head to the spa? Enjoy an in-suite spa treatment which your 24/7 private butler can arrange for you. The décor throughout is ornate, colorful, and features classic Arabic motifs. Worldly jetset travelers have privately enjoyed the accommodations, and publicly, you may have seen this suite on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills as well as Keeping Up with the Kardashians. Now, it’s your turn.
GARDEN HOUSE SUITE – The Rosewood, London
The Garden House begins with a one-bedroom suite that feels more like a luxurious apartment than a hotel room. However, book the four rooms that adjoin the suite and it becomes the Garden House Wing with 3,735 square feet of living space. The feature that really makes it stand out, however, is the large outdoor terrace that overlooks London. Dine al fresco in the garden with seating for six, and enjoy plenty of privacy with a separate service entrance for housekeeping. The master bathroom is adorned in Italian marble, and TVs are placed throughout the suite (even in that marble bathroom). Whip up some dinner in the kitchenette or curl up with a good book in the opulent sitting room. If you’re looking for true luxury, this suite has it.
THE MARK PENTHOUSE – The Mark Hotel, New York
The largest hotel penthouse in the United States, the Mark is truly an experience.

The living room, which boasts 26-foot ceilings, can even be transformed into a private grand ballroom. Other rooms include a dedicated library and conservatory, but it is the 2,500-square-foot rooftop terrace overlooking Central Park that’s perhaps most impressive. Dine outdoors with your guests and enjoy a bird’s-eye view of the city. When you stay at The Mark, you know you’ve arrived.
THE SAIGON SUITE – Reverie Saigon, Ho Chi Minh City

Posh perks include
dedicated butler service and breathtaking views of Saigon.

Suite 5000 – Mandarin Oriental, New York
Don’t bother looking for Suite 5000 on the Mandarin Oriental hotel’s website—it isn’t there. This suite is so exclusive, it’s only booked via word of mouth. Located on the hotel’s 50th floor, the 3,300-square-foot space offers a host of amenities, from your own private staff to an impressive vinyl collection (and record player to boot). While the floor-to-ceiling windows offer extraordinary panoramic views of Central Park, the interior décor equally stuns with a modern yet glamorous aesthetic. The two-bedroom suite includes a separate media room, study and butler pantry, and an art gallery curated by Whitehall magazine.
If you’re looking to surround yourself in posh décor and beautiful furnishings, or simply want the prestige that comes with a penthouse suite, these incredible rooms should make your luxury travel list.
