The $20,420-a-night Imperial Suite is the latest addition to the St. Regis Dubai and is actually larger than the hotel ballroom at 913-square-feet (85 square meters). To put it into perspective, that is around $7,000 more than the two-bedroom Royal Suite offered by the Burj Al Arab, which offers everything from butler service, a private beach, and 24-carat, gold-plated iPads.
The St. Regis Dubai is located in Al Habtoor City and has 234-rooms. The hotel is styled with French beaux-arts architecture and neo-classical interiors and opened last year. There’s even a one-bedroom Bentley suite for car aficionados upholstered in leather finishes, colors, patterns and wood veneers reminiscent of the Mulsanne, the brand’s flagship performance luxury car.
What sets the St. Regis Imperial Suite apart are two floors worth of elegant, stately furnishings linked together by an in-room spiral staircase. The staircase leads up to the central dome of the hotel where there is a rooftop plunge pool and majlis (which in Arabic means “a place of sitting”) that offer panoramic views of landscaped gardens. Along with three bedrooms, the suite also features a living room, 12-seater dining rooms, a study, and lounge area.
On the technology side, the suite provides complimentary Wi-Fi (who doesn’t these days) and two HDTVs. There’s also a well and carefully stocked mini-bar and butler service. Ample dining for 12 people will be provided.
