With a price tag of $75,000 a night and purportedly the largest and most expensive hotel penthouse suite in the whole of the USA, it's no wonder that 'spare no expense' Meghan Markle chose to hold her extravagant baby shower at the Mark Hotel's Grant Penthouse.

Designed by legendary French interior designer Jacques Grange, the lavishly-adorned penthouse will be more like a majestic residence representing the pinnacle of modern luxury with exceptional comfort and care in every detail.
The unprecedentedly spacious penthouse is set out over the top two floors of The Mark Hotel and includes 5 bedrooms, 4 fireplaces, 6 bathrooms, 2 powder rooms, and 2 wet bars. The Living Room (which can be transformed into a full-sized Grand Ballroom) boasts 26-foot ceilings, a fireplace and adjacent wet bar.
