(Newser) – To stay at the top of NYC's Four Seasons Hotel, you have to fork over $35,000 a night (no matter who you are—no discounts given). The four-room 4,300 square-foot Ty Warner Penthouse (named for the hotel's owner/Beanie Baby mogul) took 7 years to design and $50 million to construct. So what do your mega bucks get you? The Wall Street Journal takes a look:

  • a personal butler on-call 24 hours a day
  • unlimited room service (unless you want thousands of dollars of caviar; that's extra)
  • living room carpet made of white silk, handmade Venetian silk bedspread, bathroom sinks made of rock crystal

  • an in-suite waterfall, whose stones are scrubbed to ensure the water cascades evenly over the rocks
  • private gym and massage parlor
  • pre-stocked $200-a-bottle Louis Roederer Cristal champagne, unless you prefer something else, naturally
  • speaking of preferences, pretty much whatever you want: your favorite snacks, drinks, and...wait for it...toilet paper
  • should you want to leave (why would you?), access to a Maybach or Rolls-Royce, with driver

The 'beanie baby mogul". Making all that money off of stupid parents buying those stupid stuffed animals thinking they would sell them in a few years for a fortune. What did PC Barnum say? A sucker born every minute?

wow, if i had 35,000 all the the problems that keep me up at night crying would disappear. i usually don't begrudge people who have a lot of money, but, wow, that's depressing to know what is a year's salary to one person is just a hotel night to someone else.
