The hotels featured on the Hotels.com list of ‘est’ factor hotels offer extraordinary accommodation which defies the norm and offers travelers a truly memorable experience.

World’s Tallest Hotel: Burj Al Arab – Dubai
Currently the tallest hotel in the world is the Burj Al Arab in Dubai (however, the Rose Tower, also in Dubai, will surpass it once opened in late 2009). Standing at 321 metres in height, the hotel is a self-rated 7 star hotel built on a man-made island 280 metres from shore. Burj Al Arab is arguably one of the most luxurious hotels in the world with its own Rolls Royce fleet, private shopper and helicopter landing platform.
All of the hotel’s 202 duplex suites, ranging from 170 to 780 square metres, are fitted with Versace bedspreads, full size Hermes products and come with a private butler. Naturally the hotel isn’t cheap, with the Burj Al Arab also having some of the most expensive rooms costing up to US$15,000 per night. [Read more…]
