There are still a couple weeks before school starts for a lot of people, so if you hurry, you can still squeeze a little vacation in. Here are some hotel rooms you might want to consider. According to AOL Travel, these are the most expensive rooms in the world.

1. The Royal Suite at the Lanesborough in London. It's "Royal" because it has a spectacular view of Buckingham Palace. It comes with your own butler, too. Cost: $14,658 per night.

2. The Royal Suite at the Burj al Arab in Dubai. You get a rotating four-poster bed, Hermes bath products and, of course, a butler. All for the low, low cost of $14,976 per night.

3. The "“ guess what "“ Royal Suite at the Intercontinental London Park Lane in London. It has a bed that sleeps 10, plus five bedrooms, an office, a dining room and three living areas. Oh, and a butler. $17,500 per night.

4. The Imperial Suite at the Hotel Ritz Paris in Paris.

Imagine Marie Antoinette's place with plasma TVs. It could be yours for $17,556 per night.

5. The Penthouse Suite at the Martinez Hotel in Cannes. Comes with the requisite butler, obviously, but also a limo at your beck and call, a terrace that can hold 100 guests, a Turkish bath and an open bar. Only $18,000 per night.

6. The Royal Plaza Suite at the Plaza in New York City. These digs feature three bedrooms, three bathrooms, a dining room that can seat up to 12 people, white-glove butler service, 24-karat gold plated bathroom faucets and bath linens that "boast an absorbency rate four times greater than that of typical hotel towels". Nightly rates begin at $20,000.

7. The Royal Suite at President Wilson Hotel in Geneva. Four bedrooms, six bathrooms, more than 17,000 square feet and a cocktail lounge could be your home for $23,000 a night.

8. The Sky Villa 2 at the Palms in Las Vegas. It's got a picturesque view of the Strip, a rotating bed, a butler, a mini gym and a poker table. $25,000 a night.

9. The Bridge Suite at the Atlantis, Paradise Hotel in the Bahamas. If my 25 grand is going to go between this place or the Sky Villa 2, I'd go here. This suite has 10 rooms, a 22-karat gold chandelier, an 800-foot terrace and a 10-foot-tall four-poster bed.

10. The Villa Cupola at the Westin Excelsior in Rome. If you're ready to pay $29,254.96 a night, the Westin will have customized flower arrangements and cigars ready in your room upon arrival. Then, once you've completed the stressful task of checking in, you can relax with a massage and your choice of more than 150 wines in your own private wine cabinet. You also have your own theater, sun deck, fitness room and library.
