If you have $20,000 a night to spend on a hotel room you can bunk at the newly renamed Sé San Diego
(formerly The Setai) in their ultra-luxurious suite which is said to be the biggest penthouse on the West Coast. The Grand Penthouse spreads over three floors and has a large kitchen, six flat-screen televisions and a rooftop patio. The hotel also offers rooms for an average of $500 a night. Sé has 184 rooms and a sumptuous exotic decor that includes Brazilian walnut flooring, stingray skin and bronze doors. The San Diego Union-Tribune reports
that the hotel went through a name change after a legal battle with the Setai hoteliers in Miami Beach and New York.
The $150 million resort has a long list of amenities that include a concierge, European-style breakfast, a personal chef for the penthouses, a lobby bar, fitness center, infinity edge pool, spa, business center, twice-daily housekeeping and transportation in a luxury SUV with a five mile radius of the hotel.
It's not the ideal time to open a hotel, especially in San Diego where the crowded luxury hotel market is already struggling. As a nod to the economy Sé is offering lower introductory rates starting at $229.
