A luxury hotel in London is celebrating the coming royal baby of Prince William and his wife Kate by opening a $3,468-per-night baby-friendly suite.
Grosvenor House said it is celebrating the royal infant by transforming one of its luxury suites into a family accommodation complete with a nursery and $40,500 worth of hand-crafted furniture, the London Evening Standard reported Wednesday.
The hotel said guests staying in the room will also have access to an on-call baby concierge prepared to hire babysitters or order extra diapers. The room's occupants will also have access to a menu of organic baby food, a state-of-the-art bottle warmer and a $2,258 Silver Cross Balmoral stroller.
The hotel said a $1,713 adjoining suite is designed for parents who wish to bring the nanny along.
"We can't wait for guests to come and stay with us. The designs featured in the room are exquisite. Each piece of furniture tells a story and we're thrilled to be offering our guests with young children, a unique and memorable experience -- fit for a royal -- that will live with them long after their stay with us," a Grosvenor House spokeswoman said.
The room will be available for bookings later this month, the hotel said.
