Guess the Hotel Revealed!

The other month we were fortunate enough to get a tour of the Sunset Marquis' presidential villa and it is loaded with services to pamper the richest rock star, the richest movie mogul, the richest tech guru or the richest anybody, really.

The Sunset Marquis has always been known as a "hidden hotel," tucked below the Sunset Strip but the two-story, two-bedroom oasis that is the Presidential Villa is even further elusive, hidden at the back of the hotel's property and accessible from the underground garage by a private elevator. If privacy is your main desire here, these luxe digs will deliver.

Of course, the suite will deliver a few other things as well.

The Presidential Villa has two enormous bedrooms, each the size of a small apartment. The master bedroom on the second floor has a bed big enough for a rockstar and at least four groupies. But the real star here is the gigantic bathroom which has a shower, a soaking tub (with rubber duckies), a flat-screen TV, a fireplace and his and her water closets (in other words, private toilet rooms.) The bedroom also has an enormous walk-in closet, again with his and her space and full-length mirrors that catch every angle of your body and every profile of your face.

A smaller bedroom across the hall has its own spacious bathroom, again with a soaking tub, shower and private water closet. (This is the room that you see in the video above.) But this room also has a good-sized living area where your roadies can crash and access to the villas private pool area.

If you can stand to leave the bedrooms, then wind down the spiral steps and your private screening room awaits. As does a fully-stocked professional kitchen, a dining room for 10, an office with an iMac computer and a seating area where you can kick back to watch some regular TV. (And by regular TV, we mean watch TV on a regular flat-screen, not the projector screen in the screening room.)

Ok, so now that we have you salivating over this super sweet suite, you're probably wondering how much all this costs. Well, it's a lot. About $5,000 a day. But that also includes a 24-hour personal butler, a beverage set-up (alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks provided), dinner in-suite prepared by the hotel's executive chef Guillaume Burlion, one spa treatment per day for two people, complimentary parking and a private cabana.

However, if you only want to crash in the pad and don't need the extra services, you can get it for $3,500. The suite is also available for private events and private screenings with rates varying depending on the party size.

If you still want the Sunset Marquis experience--which is akin to entering a members-only club, no matter the room category--a deluxe room starts at around $340 a night and a one-bedroom villa starts at $525 a night.

I was searching a house on the century21sweyer.com when I found this article here. The price is quite in the sky, but taking in consideration the luxury of the villa and the included services, well, it's quite bargain for people with money.
