The Eames family along with the Eames Foundation Board are offering something new at the Case Study House to create a richer experience and ultimately raise money for future upkeep. Among the new offerings are more in-depth interior tours ($500/two people); tour with picnic in the meadow ($1,000/4 people); wedding in the meadow ($15,000/up to 50) and the ultimate overnight stay for two at just $10,000. Sleeping in the guest quarters that is. This seems a little steep so we decided to do a little comparison to see what 10 grand will get you in other venues. We started our case study in Vegas.
For the same price of one night at the Eames house ($10k), you can get two nights at the 3,400 square foot, five room presidential suite at the Four Seasons Hotel, Las Vegas. The 180 degree suite has floor-to-ceiling views of the city, the bed itself is worth over $10G’s. Kate Beckinsale has been known to rest here.
Got a couple extra grand? Two nights at the Bellagio luxury villa cost $12k but the added perks are worth it. The three bedroom includes A-lister amenities like rainforest Swiss steam showers, a personal workout room, private courtyard garden with a fireplace and spa, limousine and 24-hour butler service! How about six nights enjoying the penthouse at the Trump hotel? The three-bedroom, 2,745 square foot suite has panoramic views of the Strip, a gourmet kitchen and any food or amenity ready upon arrival.
Feeling international? For around $10,000, up to 10 people can enjoy two weeks at a stunning hilltop property overlooking Agrari Bay on Mykonos Island. This is one of the best and largest properties on the most cosmopolitan island in Greece.
If you’re on a budget but still want the experience of staying at famed architecture, head to the midwest. A small group of people can occupy an entire Frank Lloyd Wright house overnight from $155-$425. Throw in airfare and it’s still a fraction of the cost of one night at the Case Study guesthouse.
