What is the most important thing to look for in a night away? Is it luxury beds? Maybe an exotic locale? Or maybe you just look for a really nice bath close by.


1 Hotel in Brooklyn has what's being called the best bath in New York City. The Riverhouse Suite's bathroom is the stuff of dreams. While the 2000 sq ft. room itself is lovely, the bathroom caught the eye of writer Brennan Kilbane.

1 Hotel is rather proud of this bathroom.



With a tub carved out of a single block of granite, filtered water pumped in piping hot, and a floor to ceiling window overlooking the so-called Greatest City in the World, it's easy to see why Kilbane would gush over it.

All for the low, low price of $7000 a night.







It's certainly not for everyone. In fact, with that price, one could argue it's only for a very specific group of people. The luxury of the bath still makes it difficult to justify the premium pricing.

New York City is known for its premium pricing. People will split rent in an apartment that would cost a third of its pricing anywhere else. It is a city of scarce real estate and costs reflect that.

Even with all that in mind, who is this for? If you have the money to pay $7000 a night, wouldn't you already have a personal luxury bath? And if you can't afford it, why tease yourself with the possibility.

Maybe we need to leave New York alone for a while.

It's a lot. Like a lot a lot. History class lied so hard.

I needed to tell you all that so you understood it is not an attack on the movie when I say Max sucked.

Board games are designed carefully by teams of experts. Countless brainstorm sessions are carried out, designs and prototypes are proposed and changed, and plenty of focus groups are consulted along the way.

Businesses have to turn a profit to be able to stay operational. We get it. A consumer is paying more than it costs to make the product to purchase the product. The upside of accepting this fact should be we're being provided a service and experience we couldn't possibly get on our own. However, there are those products that are overcharged, especially compared to the development costs, that are charged a high price for what feels like no reason outside of making a ridiculous amount of money.
