Hotel room rates vary, depending on location, amenities, and time of year. The majority of travelers in this country compare prices and choose accommodations based on their budgets. Wealthy travelers who are not concerned with costs are drawn to penthouses and luxury suites with higher price tags. Here are some of the most expensive hotel rooms in the United States, and prices are subject to change.
