UAE/Dubai: Gevora Hotel – World’s Tallest Hotel
The Gevora Hotel we are staying at Dubai turned out to be the world tallest hotel and the Guinness Record Book holders. The slim metal and glass tower rises to the height of 1,169.1 ft (356.33 m). This is the tallest pure hotel on the planet (several skyscrapers in China have hotel floors at the upper floors of business and financial towers that are higher but not pureplay). Gevora is the 9th tallest building in UAE and among top 50 in the world. Gilded wall decorations and white marble abound throughout the hotel, nice pool, and the best part is the rooftop bar with absolutely unparalleled views of the Dubai skyline and Burj Khalifa just several blocks away.
