(Relaxnews) - The most expensive hotel suite in New York city took seven years and $50 million USD to build, features cathedral ceilings, semi-precious stones in the bathroom, a grand piano and stands 800 feet (over 240 m) above the street -- the highest hotel penthouse in the city.

Named after the American business tycoon who created the Beanie Baby empire and who holds a significant share of the luxury hotel chain, one night at the Four Seasons New York Ty Warner Penthouse costs the equal of a lower middle class yearly salary in the US.

That’s according to the latest survey out of NewYorkHotels.org, which came up with a list of the 10 most expensive hotel suites in Manhattan based on average rates throughout the month of September.

For the sum of $45,000 a night, guests of the extravagant hotel suite get panoramic 360-degree views of the pulsing city below them.

Every inch of the 4,300-square-foot (400 square meters) suite is pimped out in luxurious finishings from calfskin leather walls in the dressing room, semi-precious stones in the Zen room waterfall, 18-century Japanese silk pillows and hand-lacquered walls with mother-of-pearl inlay.

Further, the suite also comes with a 24-hour on-call butler and use of chauffeur service in either a Rolls-Royce or Maybach.

In second spot, guests of the Presidential Suite inside the St. Regis pay $35,000 a night for bragging rights to sleeping in the same room as Salvador Dali and Marilyn Monroe.
