1. The Burj Al Arab
The Burj Al Arab in Dubai is arguably the most luxurious hotel in the world and standing at 1,053 feet tall, it's the fourth tallest in the world. Constructed started on the artificial island in 1994...it was such a revolutionary design that Barcelona has built a copy-cat hotel. The shape is supposed to allude the sail of a ship. For obvious reasons, it's sometimes called the world's only seven-star hotel.
