Even in a growing crowd of ultra expensive accommodations, the Jewel Suite at the New York Palace hotel stands out.

The only thing more eye-catching than the cost — $25,000 a night, according to The New York Times — is the design.

Jeweler Martin Katz helped BBG-BBGM create the 5,000 square foot suite, which is 53 stories high in the New York Palace.

Katz has adorned Forbes' 400 business leaders, celebrities and dignitaries with his contemporary jewelery inspired by vintage pieces. It is sold in only two locations, his exclusive Beverly Hills boutique and Bergdorf Goodman in New York City.


"I am thrilled and honored to have been asked to be part of the rebirth of this incredibly iconic hotel," Katz said in a New York Palace press release. "Our vision of how to excite the luxury client aligned perfectly into this crescendo of the Jewel Suite." 

The Jewel Suite is the first Katz helped design and his influence is certainly felt. Take a photo tour of it below:

This is a chandelier Katz designed for the space. The 20-foot "Waterfall of Diamonds"  flows through the stairwell of the three-story suite.

Here's another view of the "Watefall of Diamonds." To the left, next to the television, is one of the display cases in the suite. Jeweled china, artistry and exclusive jewelry designs by Katz are displayed throughout, including suspended crystal "jewel boxes."

Here is the dining room of the Jewel Suite. It's just as lavish as the rest of it, not surprisingly. The suite, which opened in fall 2013, was part of a $140 million renovation.

Each guest who books the Jewel Suite for its regular nightly rate recieves an original Michael Katz Diamond Miccroband Ring that has a retail value of $2,500. Guests can also arrange a meeting with Katz for private showings, design consultations and private creations in the suite's viewing room (above) — an uncommon level of access to the famed jeweler.

Like the dining room and other spaces, the master bedroom is impeccably designed and has great views of the city. But the best views are on the roof.

The terrace is an ideal place to ask for a loved one's hand in marriage and the "The Ultimate Proposal Package" was created to make it a moment to remember.

The package includes a night in the Jewel Suite, private consultation with Mr. Katz for the creation of a custom-designed engagement ring and/or wedding band; and a customized private dining experience for two on the breathtaking rooftop terrace. It starts at $50,000 per night, depending on the the custom jewel pieces.

If you're going for a "wow" factor, it would be hard to top that.
