Author: Jonathan Warren
With travel on hold for us all at the moment, Instagram has become our main source of wanderlust and the perfect way for us to dream about all the places we’d love to visit in the future.
For many people, hotel bedrooms are one of the most exciting parts of the holiday. In fact, there are over 1.4 million uses of hashtags such as #hotelroom on Instagram, with people from across the globe sharing photos of impressive suites and luxurious beds. But what is the true cost of staying in some of the most sought-after hotel bedrooms?
To find out, we analysed Google search data from the world’s 100 most lavish hotels1 to find the top 10, before taking to Instagram to find out just what you can expect when staying in some of the most luxurious bedrooms.
We then calculated the true cost of staying in each of the bedrooms for just one night, and the price may come as a shock!
If the picture-perfect options below are a little out of your price range, we’ve even created a guide to help you bring a little luxury to your own home, by re-creating a top-end hotel bedroom, here.
