NY TIMES: Hotels Race to Attract Superrich Clientele

SUITE New York Principal, Kris Fuchs weighs in on the rising trend of luxury hotel suites in today’s The New York Times.

“We’ve seen more and more boutique hotels and the bigger-name hotels making suites that are one-off,” said Kris Fuchs, principal at Suite New York, a furniture showroom involved in the Regency’s suite renovation. “I think it makes it extra special that you’re in a room no one else in the hotel has.”

Extra special for sure.  In New York, the fierce competition wages on as hotels continue to up the ante in the luxury department.  For example, in November, the Mandarin Oriental, New York, opened a 3,300-square-foot suite that includes floor-to-ceiling windows and a dining room that seats 10; its rate is $28,000 a night.  Also, the Loews Regency Hotel in New York reopened last week after a yearlong, $100 million renovation, and six one-of-a-kind suites will open in April.  Hotels hope this trend of “super-suites” with ultimately attract the “super rich.”
