The world is getting increasingly crowded, with more people staying in hotels and more of them staying in expensive ones, says Al Jazeera’s Andrew Smith.
He says it’s no surprise that the world’s most expensive hotels are clustered in big cities, with hotels in New York and London costing more than $30,000 per night.
He tells Al Jazeera that, while most people don’t want to pay more, it’s important to remember that it’s all about luxury and getting to know your hotel room.
“We live in a world where luxury is the new luxury and if you want to know how much it costs to be in New Orleans and the most expensive hotel room in the world, go to New York City,” he says.
“It’s the most famous hotel in the whole world.
That is very, very expensive.”
