For those New Yorkers looking for an unforgettable way to take in the Super Bowl, and for whom a $150,000 party is a little cheap, the Chatwal Hotel has just the offer.
Larry Olmsted of Forbes writes that the Chatwal is offering a $3 million tailgate this Sunday for Super Bowl XLVIII. The experience will take place in the Barrymore Suite, which occupies the entire tenth floor of the hotel and has four bedrooms, four and a half bathrooms and a 1,000-foot outdoor terrace.
Inside the suite is what some have dubbed the "World’s Most Expensive" TV, a 55-inch PrestigeHD TV by Stuart Hughes that is coated in 22K yellow gold and 72 carats of diamonds. According to Olmsted, the TV accounts for more than two of the $3 million cost of the suite.
Here's a look at the inside of the suite:

Town and Country reports that the culinary offerings include caviar nachos, truffle pizza, and Kobe beef chili from chef Geoffrey Zakarian.
Other luxuries include $2,000 bottles of beer from Hair of the Dog in Portland, $1,150 Ghurka Black Dragon cigars and Swarovski Crystal football helmets for the Seahawks and the Broncos.

If this isn't the most expensive Super Bowl tailgate, no other establishment has stepped forward yet to claim that distinction. ABC News highlighted what it called 4 Crazy Expensive Super Bowl Experiences, and the big-ticket item on that list was a mere $635,000.Full Story >>
