• The highest hotel rooms in the world
To all lovers of thrills, dizzying heights and fascinating species, we propose to make a small tour of the tallest hotels in the world.
The tallest hotel in the US has recently been opened near Times Square at 1717 Broadway. This 68-storey skyscraper, combining just two network brand hotels Marriott - Courtyard and Residence Inn.
Hotel reaches 232 meters in height and can accommodate 639 hotel rooms. Hotel Majestic building was once grandiose and dazzling tower, which rises in the heart of New York City. The first 33 floors will occupy the hotel Courtyard, while the remaining floors will be owned by the hotel Residence Inn. The hotel boasts the presence of a fitness center with views of Central Park and a personal trainer in the bargain. Night in a hotel can cost you $ 300 and above.
However, this hotel is not the highest in the world. But the JW Marriott Marquis in Dubai, which is also owned by Marriott, is included in the Guinness Book of Records. The building consists of two towers, each of which has 72 floors, it reaches a total of 355 meters in height.
Of course, it's highest hotel, but, nevertheless, its height is only half the height of the Burj Khalifa - the tallest building in the world (828 meters). Unfortunately, Armani Hotel hotel located within the Burj Khalifa, has not yet opened its doors to guests. Meanwhile Tower Hotel Rosa - the second tallest hotel in the world, reaching 333 meters in height.
And yet it is not the highest place in the world where you can spend the night. To have a good rest on the tops of the sky-high, go to Hong Kong. The Ritz-Carlton occupies the top 16 floors of the International Commercial Center.
Oddly enough, but the hotel was not enrolled in the list of the 100 highest hotels in the world, compiled by the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat, t. To. He does not occupy 85% or more of the total area of the building, which houses. Also, it is not surprising that more than half of the hotels represented in the top ten ranking is built in Dubai - very chic and ultra-modern city of the Middle East.
Place the third of the height of the hotel, it will probably surprise you. It is located in Pyongyang. Despite the fact that Ryugon hotel satisfies all the requirements of Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat, and could be included in the list of the high-rise hotels of the world, however, it has not been put into operation. In fact, its construction dates back to 1987, has been suspended due to the economic crisis in the country.
There is a reasonable question - why a country that can not feed its own population, is engaged in the construction of such ostentatious and pompous buildings.
