For $20,000 a Night You Too Can Feel like Sting, George W., or Just a Sultan
If you're paying $15,000 a night for a hotel room, you'd better hope it's called something like the Sultan Suite. Well that is what it's called at the Ciragan Palace Kempinski in Istanbul.
If you've actually got the dough to throw down for a room like this, expect the works. Overlooking both Asia and Europe due to its locale, this isn't even the top. Throw down an extra $5,000 grand more and you can be the grand sultan like many celebs to have come before you:
Sting moved out the day before I arrived and other illustrious guests have included Luciano Pavarotti, Ray Charles, Gloria Estefan, Warren Beatty, Uma Thurman, Prince Charles, Bill Clinton and assorted Bushes
With a celeb list like that and a bill over 20 grand don't worry you'll be seeing plenty of crystal chandeliers, Turksih marble, and the high-tech stuff too like plasma TVs, automatic sound systems and WiFi. You can even rally up your butler to arrange the mattress's softness to your liking, something we imagine George W. having done.
As for us, we don't need a bed butler. We'll probably just demand a silver platter of Turkish Delights and work on feeling like a sultan...without the sex slaves.
