World’s tallest hotel to open in Dubai

Tuesday, November 3rd, 2009

The world’s tallest hotel, the Rose Rayhaan by Rotana, is scheduled to open in Dubai by mid-December, UAE daily Emirates Business reported on Monday.

Rotana said it expects occupancy levels at the 481-room hotel on Sheikh Zayed Road of no less than 80 percent, the newspaper reported.

The hotelier’s expectations are a far cry from current hotel occupancy levels in the UAE, which have been hit by the global recession as fewer tourists visiting to the Gulf tourism hub.
