    As a shameless plug, this hotel is currently on sale at vacationist for the next 6 days. A Junior Suite is currently on sale for $550 (50% off regular rates). If you need an invite, feel free to jump in... :)

    Actually not a bad price for a suite in this area of London- less than what a standard room would cost at many hotels.

    The bedroom in that picture isn't that impressive! I would have thought there would be a live Jaguar somewhere, that might spice it up a bit.

    It's been some years since I've stayed at this hotel, but I never once experienced good service there the few times I did try it out. Tend to doubt it is a luxury hotel.

    I have to take a second mortgage on the house to be able to pay for one night at this new Jaguar Suite! :D

    It better come with a new convertible :p If not, I will use the $8000 towards future stays so I can qualify for SPG Plat. or Hyatt Diamond.

    It is actually a pretty unique suite, but it is worth the price tag?:confused:

    So far I know, Taj Hotels, Palaces and Resorts do NOT offer a Loyalty program just yet! I can imagine what we all would earn for a 8000$ spend at Starwood, Hyatt or Hilton!;)

    I don't think this suite is worth $8K per night. I'd rather use that money at another property that is cheaper but better.

    Definitely. Hyatt Place and Four Points. Might as well just call a hotel and tell them to check you in and out everyday for fifty days at a rate of $100. I'm sure they wouldn't turn down an easy revenue of $5K with the ability to oversell since it wouldn't be used. Use the additional $3K at another program such as Hyatt or Hilton.
