AND IF YOU'RE REALLY OUT TO IMPRESS . . .

Consider the Penthouse Suite at San Francisco's Fairmont Hotel.

After the limousine picks you up at the airport and delivers you to the Fairmont, take your private elevator to this eight-room suite. If you want to blast around town for a while, store your excess cash in the suite's burglar-proof vault and make your way downstairs. The limousine's at your disposal.

If you want to hang around, though, you won't lack for diversions. There are four television sets. If you're feeling more civilized, though, pour a brandy from the fully stocked bar, grab a snack from the tray of complimentary California-grown fruits and slip into the two-story circular library with domed ceiling. Or maybe a tour of your digs, with its original art by contemporary American artists, would be more enjoyable. Considering you have more than 6,300 square feet to roam around in, it'll take a minute or two.

Too contemplative, you say? Nip into the game room, with its Persian-tiled walls and stained-glass skylight, or knock out a few tunes on the grand piano in the drawing room.
