Seven Star Hotels

"You have most likely noticed that any hotel you've ever stayed in proudly advertises their "star rating". Most hotels in the United States operate on a five star or Diamond system and hotels are judged based on their locations, services, accommodations, and amenities."

Unfortunately, the worldwide travel industry has not been able to formalize a standard system within which to judge hotels. This lack of professional standards means that some hotels run on a different system than others. While most countries cap their hotel rating systems at five, some use six or seven star ratings, claiming to be the homes of some of the most beautiful and prestigious hotels in the world. There is currently only one seven star hotel in the world, but there are a handful more under construction. Start planning your vacations now and be the first to see some of the amazing architectural wonders.

The Burj Al Arab

Construction on the Burj Al Arab in Dubai began in 1994 and was modeled after the sail of a famous Arabian ship. The appearance was created by using teflon-coated fiberglass and white materials that resemble a mast when viewed from a distance. The hotel is an architectural masterpiece. The foundation was constructed on an artificial island and the hotel is home to the world's tallest atrium. While the Burj Al Arab likes to believe it is the world's only seven-star hotel, it is officially known as a five-star deluxe hotel on the standard star system.

The hotel houses a mere 202 rooms, but each floor of the hotel is double layered. The deluxe hotel rooms range in size from approximately 1,800 square feet up to approximately 8,000 square feet. A room in the Burj Al Arab costs a minimum of $1,000 per evening and can increase in price up to $25,000 per night. The hotel is home to highly acclaimed restaurants, one of which is the home of the well known chef Kevin McLaughlin.

Morgan Plaza

The Morgan Plaza (now known as Pangu Seven Star Hotel), also known as a seven-star luxury hotel, was built in Beijing, China for the 2008 Olympic Games. The hotel is located in the Morgan Plaza and is one of many various buildings in the bustling district of Changan. It is situated near a myriad of national landmarks.

The construction of the hotel, a pivotal building in the plaza long with pavilions, a temple, and a famous restaurant, was completed before the Summer Olympics in Beijing in 2008. China stands to benefit greatly from increased tourism due to the new plaza itself.

The Flower of the East

Located on Kish Island in Iran, the Flower of the East began construction in 2004 and ended in 2010. The hotel is the centerpiece of a complex development project which includes a number of hotels, residential condos, and businesses.

The Flower of the East hotel is designed to look exactly as it sounds "like a flower". Designed with a combination of Persian and Modern architectural influences, the sevenstar hotel will be surrounded by a beautiful park and will be visible from every area of the development.

The Centaurus

The Centaurus hotel is a seven-star hotel located in The Centaurus development project upon its completion, in 2010. Officials in Packistan claim that the entire plaza serves as a symbol of both the country's personal and international growth. The hotel itself is 37 stores tall.

The Pentominium

The Pentominium, in Dubai, is better known as an apartment building as opposed to a hotel. Even still, once it was completed the building already was the second tallest building dedicated to residential living in the world. The project broke ground in 2007 and the construction ended in 2011. The complexaims to provide luxury amenities, much like a hotel, including butler service, the use of luxury vehicles, and sailing trips.
