Now you can have decadence Mariah Carey-style and soak in a tub filled with bubbly during your stay at Il Saviatino in Firenze, Italy. This service is available if you book the Ojetti Suite and you can choose between champagne, Spumante, or Prosecco for the most expensive bath ever, which can go higher than USD 10,000.

#2. Let the concierge prepare you a special hangover recovery drink

If you’re staying at The Ritz-Carlton New Orleans and you had too much to drink at the Mardi Gras, you can call for the Recovery Concierge to help you get out of that hellish hangover. They will whip up their signature “Hair of the Dog” Bloody Mary that will help you get back into shape again for another night in Bourbon Street.

#3. Call a psychic for your furry friend

For regular people like you and me, it’s hard to find a decent pet-friendly hotel. But money has the ability to dismiss such inconveniences. At the Hotel deLuxe in Portland, Oregon, not only can you arrange for your dog or cat to be serviced by vets and groomers, you can also call for a psychic and acupuncturist. Oh, and there’s a spiritual menu as well!

#4. Browse in luxury using an iPad made of gold
