The tallest hotel building is the Rose Tower. There is another building that is still unfinished and is nine times taller than the Burj Al Arab. This building is an icon that is defined as the symbol of Dubai and it shows the modern trend that Dubai has. It is also an imitation of the sail of a boat. The architecture who designed the Burj Al Arab was Tom Wright of Atkins. The hotel has 202 rooms and the construction got completed in the year 1999. The Burj Al Arab has 18 elevators and 60 floors. The hotel is located on an artificial island which is constructed almost 80 meters offshore. The hotel looks like a seven stars hotel in and is known for its unique architecture.
