You can do a lot with $48,000 — pick up a couple of basic SUVs, acquire three Bitcoins or even buy a small house.
Or, as of February 2018, you can drop the whole chunk of change on one night in what’s being touted as the most expensive and exclusive suite on the French Riviera.
The opulent two-bedroom Princess Grace suite is the centrepiece of four-year, multimillion dollar renovations at the Hotel de Paris Monte-Carlo in the swanky Mediterranean principality of Monaco.
The 910-square-meter luxury suite takes its name, and its style pointers, from celebrated US movie star Grace Kelly, who became a princess when she wed Monaco’s Prince Rainier in 1956.
It’s claimed the Hotel do Paris Monte Carlo was her five-star luxury retreat of choice, although several other posh hotels around the planet market their own Princess Grace Suites.
