The first hotel designed and developed by Giorgio Armani, the Armani Hotel Dubai
has been turning heads in over-the-top Dubai since its debut earlier this year. The setting alone is impressive; the hotel is located on floors 0-8 (along with 38 & 39) of the Burj Khalifa, the world's tallest building. Inside, it's a feast for the senses. Armani himself designed the eight on-site restaurants; the guest rooms are Armani through and through-- from the Eramosa stone floors to the zebrawood panels. Hot rates: Book the Armani Hotel Dubai with Five Star Alliance and you'll be privy to best available rates plus value-added extras: a bountiful buffet breakfast plus two complimentary tickets to KidZania
, an innovative children's theme park in the Dubai Mall that's a kid-sized replica of a real city, where kids play at being grown-ups (and even don uniforms).
