The 1,600-square-foot, one-bedroom Amarillo Suite features a hand-carved Harrison and Gil headboard; an Italian marble bathroom with a limestone egg bath and rainfall shower; a full-size Cattelan dining table with seating for up to 10 guests; a Bang & Olufsen plasma TV; wireless Internet; and European and American adaptor plugs.

The nightly rate for the suite would generally be about $5,200.

The $585,000 price is only available for stays during one calendar year. A maximum of four people are permitted to stay in the suite at one time.
