What makes for a really great hotel suite? Is it the quality of the furnishings, the amazing view that you can get, or the level of personal service that you can receive from a hotel? When looking at the most impressive hotel suites, it’s worth considering different suites from around the world, and what sort of features they offer, as well as what kinds of price ranges they fit into. From the Chairman Suite in Singapore to the Presidential Suite in Paris, why are these suites so impressive?
Chairman Suite, Singapore
The largest suite in the Marina Bay Sands resort in Singapore, the Chairman Suite includes four bedrooms, spas, marble baths, and a baby grand piano, as well as a pool table and karaoke system. Rates for the suite start at around $13,000 per night.
