Armani Hotel Dubai, premiered at a ribbon-cutting ceremony on April 27 in the United Arb Emirates city's Burj Khalifa, the world's tallest building.
Eight floors and levels 38 and 39 in the 160-story, 2625-foot tower, the 160-room hotel was entirely designed and planned by Armani, featuring custom furnishings, eight restaurant menus, with cuisine that range from Italian to Indian and Japanese and reflect the multi-ethnic money-pot that is Dubai.
"It has long been my dream to have a hotel in which I, myself, would like to stay and entertain family and friends, where the Armani aesthetic is combined with Italian-style warmth and hospitality," said Armani at the opening. "I am thrilled to open the doors of the Armani Hotel Dubai and invite my guests in to experience my world."
