The Wall Street Journal has a story (http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052702304746604577379944042575320.html) on the move toward $1000 per night room rates (not necessarily suites) for "ultra-luxury" hotels. Among the Europen hotels mentioned are:

Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc on the French Riviera (high-season price: 750, or about $986)
...See post #4 for a follow-up.

Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park, London (rates begin at about 735--$1,190)

Ritz Paris (now about $960)

Mandarin Oriental Paris (Entry-level room: about $1,175)

Castello di Casole, about 45 minutes from Florence, Italy [entry-level suites for about $828 (630) in low season, about $1,578 (1,200) in high season]

Or you could just stop in the Lobby, read a paper and have drink in the bar and save a lot of money for almost the same experience.:angel:

This month's "Departures" has an article on the Hotel du Cap. I guess they have a major PR campaign underway.
