The top 10 tallest hotels in the world

 

Whilst the Burj Al Arab is no longer the tallest hotel in the world (it’s now fourth), it is an iconic building of its time and the video is worth watching. It shows how during the 1990s, engineeering was really pushed to its limits in the construction of the edifice, as architects battled against intense storms.

Dubai is still home to the tallest hotel in the world – it’s now the JW Marriott Marquis Dubai which is situated in the Business Bay district, and the hotel stretches 1,164 feet above the ground. In fact, Dubai has 4 of the 5 tallest hotels in the world.
