Damien-Hirst-designed Empathy Suite

Sharks suspended in formaldehyde, graphics of oversized pills and flooring patterned with butterflies await high-rolling guests staying in this hotel suite, which British artist Damien Hirst has designed for the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas.

The suite offers two master bedrooms and a cantilevered outdoor pool overlooking the Las Vegas Strip, along with numerous lounges that can fit over 50 people, massage rooms, a salt relaxation room, a gym, two bathrooms and a powder room.

The suite also includes some of Hirst’s most recognisable artworks including Winner/Loser, two bull sharks suspended in formaldehyde; and Casino Royal, a collection of his butterfly motifs.

Available for free for guests with over $1 million (£758,890) in credit at the resort, or anyone else that can splash out $200,000 (£151,753) for a two-night stay, Hirst's Empathy Suite spans 9,000 square feet (836 square metres) and occupies two storeys within the Palms.
