While it may not come as a surprise to any of our readers, a recent report proves the popular assumption that the most expensive hotel in America is, in fact, found at the Walt Disney World Resort in Central Florida.
The report comes from a study conducted by Chrono24, an online luxury watch marketplace, which pointed to the annual average cost per night. The “winner” turned out to be The Four Seasons Resort Orlando at Walt Disney World, which has an average cost of $1,733.10 per night.
The Chrono24 study, which examined average room rates from Booking.com, points to other high-end lodgings, including the Skylofts at MGM Grand in Las Vegas ($1,457.33 per night), the Towers at Lotte New York Palace in New York City ($1309.09), Pendry Manhattan West in New York City ($1,048.58) and Equinox Hotel in New York City ($988.63).
Opening in 2014, the 26-acre Resort Hotel boasts a Five Diamond AAA rating and is designed to cater to the entire family. A spokeswoman told MarketWatch that individual nightly rates on rooms range from $1,049 per night to as much as $60,000 per night for the nine-bedroom royal suite.
“Guests who stay at the resort enjoy our premier location, close to the magic of the theme parks,” she said, “and many of our guest rooms and suites have views of the nightly Disney fireworks.”
Recently Disney Fanatics and would-be Guests have pointed out the costs of rooms at Walt Disney World Resort Hotels, even with the Disney+ and Annual Passholder discounts. But while Monorail Resorts like Disney’s Contemporary and other Deluxe Resorts like Disney’s BoardWalk Inn and Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge might see rate spikes throughout the year, it appears that The Four Seasons officially holds the crown for most expensive.
We at Disney Fanatic will continue to update our readers on Disney Parks news and stories as more developments come to light.
