It’s President’s Day! This special day of political reverence actually makes us wish we were reveling in a long weekend… in one of the world’s most prestigious Presidential Suites. Which ones are those? Check out these super luxe living quarters we’re gawking at from around the globe:
Intercontinental Hong Kong (Hong Kong, China)
Arguably Asia’s most stunning presidential suite, InterContinental Hong Kong‘s luxury five-bedroom 7,000 square feet space offers personal butler service, a gym, a private study, and a dining room. Step into your rain forest shower — or rejuvenate in the private sauna and steam room — all located in the suite’s bathroom. Or head out onto your rooftop terrace to take advantage of an infinity pool, Jacuzzi, and the beautiful Hong Kong skyline.
St. Regis New York (New York, New York)
Every hotel in the Big Apple boasts about its Presidential Suite, but the St. Regis offers an exceptional experience and new design. Live large in its three bedrooms and four bathrooms, plus a wood-paneled library, full kitchen, dining room, and stunning floor-to-ceiling windows that offer views of Central Park, 55th Street, and Fifth Avenue. Your recently renovated room now has a 300-square-foot spa–inspired bathroom with a Jacuzzi tub. And since you’re playing Mr./Mrs. President, you’ll receive a complimentary bottle of Champagne and in-room movies.
The Raj Palace (Jaipur, India)
There are actually two presidential suites at The Raj Palace, but while the Shahi Mahal (which is rumored to be the grandest!) recently underwent renovations, Maharaja’s Pavilion is more than satisfactory. Enter the four-floor 16,000-square-foot apartment from a private entrance to find a private lounge and bar on the first floor, second floor museum, library and dining room on the third floor, and private spa and rooftop terrace with a Jacuzzi at the top. Gold and silver furniture and lavish chandeliers decorate the suite, which also comes with private butler service and an elevator to take guests to all four floors.
Four Seasons Hualalai (Kailua-Kona, Hawaii)
Walk right from the comfort of your four-bed bungalow to the beach at this Four Seasons Hualalai Presidential Villa. Delight in your master bedroom’s outdoor lava-rock shower — along with glass-door access to the lanai — which has its own hot tub. View the Pacific Ocean from the many floor-to-ceiling windows. And relax and breathe in the freshness from your own open-air living room.
Mandarin Oriental Tokyo (Tokyo, Japan)
Things are top notch in Tokyo, where the Mandarin Oriental Tokyo’s suite boasts goose-down bedding and Egyptian cotton linens and bathroom with a walk-in shower and heated floors — along with a Jacuzzi positioned to let you admire the Tokyo skyline. Spectacular views continue with the suite’s floor-to-ceiling windows, and curated commissioned art, in the living room. Other amenities include an eight-seat dining room, interactive entertainment system, and walk-in closet.
Hotel Principe di Savoia (Milan, Italy)
From your private elevator, you’ll access your 5,400-square-foot Presidential Suite atop the Hotel Principe di Savoia, filled with antique furniture, French crystal furnishings, and Venetian XIX century mirrors. Lounge in your Jacuzzi, bath whirlpool, and private Pompeian-inspired spa or take a romp around your other three bedrooms, formal dining room, and well appointed bar.
Belmond Grand Hotel Europe (St. Petersburg, Russia)
Late last year, the Belmond Grand Hotel Europe debuted the largest presidential suite in St. Petersburg, a work of art, with gold-leaf ceiling design and gorgeous views. But additional perks truly make it fit for a
royal presidential stay — like a private fitness center (including a treadmill and cycling machine), sauna, game room, study and library (with a hidden bookcase/secret entrance to one of the bedrooms), grand piano, and catered meals in the eight-seat dining room.
St. Regis Abu Dhabi (Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates)
Want a stay with some suspense? Literally? Book this highest suspended hotel suite in the world, located at the St. Regis Abu Dhabi. The lavish suite connects the Nations Towers of the hotel at 656 feet above the ground, allowing you to take in breathtaking 360-degree views of the Arabian Gulf and Abu Dhabi skyline. There’s also an exercise gym, a private spa, crystal chandeliers and 24-carat gold accents in the Grand Drawing Room, and a grand staircase leads to the Master Suite on the second floor.
Four Seasons Hotel George V Paris (Paris, France)
The Four Seasons Paris has three presidential suites to choose from, each with bonus amenities like a private fitness room, extra-large living room, or spacious office space. All of the suites offer giant marble bathrooms with a steam room, sauna, and bidet and are designed with the gorgeous fabrics, crystal chandeliers, beautiful paintings, fresh bouquets of flowers and that extravagance you’d expect from Parisian hospitality.
The Hazelton Hotel (Toronto, Canada)
The Hazelton Hotel suite’s three-bedroom, four-bathroom space has a private elevator and steam shower, an expansive terrace, grand foyer, and wine cellar. With both an indoor and outdoor kitchen, guests can serve a fancy meal in their dining room or hire executive chef Mark McEwan to cook directly in the suite.
