Did you know there was such thing as a 7 stars hotel?

I was just browsing the oh so wonderful internet, when I came across this... It's not a fact, I don't think, but I think its pretty close, the world's most luxurious, tallest, 7 stars hotel ~ Burj Al Arab Hotel in Dubai.

Can you believe some of these photos???

The Lobby

Royal Suite



According to Wikipedia, this hotel was opened in 1999, there are 202 bedroom suites in the whole hotel.  The smallest suite is a whopping 1820 sq ft.!  Man, that's bigger than my house!!!  The largest suite they have...are you ready?....8400 sq ft.!!!!!  I mean, really...seriously...why?

You get your own personal chaffeur driven Rolls Royce, check-in in your suite, there is a private reception area on EVERY floor, and as if that's not enough, professional butlers that are at your service 24hrs a day...

Planning your next vacation?  I don't know about you, but even if I were to have insane money to spare, I don't think I would spend that much just for a hotel room...but then again, what do I know right?

So what do you think is a reasonable budget for a room a night, maybe even for a room of this caliber?  What would be the absolute maximum amount of money you are willing to spend for a room a night?

Want to know what the cost for a suite at this luxurious 7 stars hotel is?  Take a guess...I will post it in the comments ~ How close was your guess?   :-X

Ready for the answer? The cheapest room in the whole hotel starts at $2000 a night! And we all know when it saids starts at, what does that mean? It means its going to be more than that...I can't imagine what the most expensive suite costs.

But then again, I guess compared to some of the other places that celebrities stay in, this one might actually be a deal...

What do you think?

I saw this hotel on the luxury travel channel a few years ago. I think it's for the oil tycoons.
