Emirates Palace: Inside a 7-Star Hotel

emirates_palace_exteriorA trip to Dubai wouldn’t be complete without visiting the capital of Abu Dhabi too. While you’ll absolutely still find the same excess as in Dubai, Abu Dhabi at least appears to be a city that isn’t half-constructed. I was in Abu Dhabi to see the Sheik Zayed Grand Mosque, but since I was there, I stopped in at The Emirates Palace. Now this is a hotel deserving of its moniker; opulent in every sense of the word, it is truly fit for royalty.

From the gold-plated elevators to the marble floors, and even gold vending machines, (yes, really!) no expense was spared in making The Emirates Palace feel anything short of luxurious. Not surprisingly, the hotel cost over $3 billion USD and took a team of 12,000 workers to complete construction.

A lot of day-trippers come to marvel at the hotel, but only those looking to really splurge stay the night. As one of the world’s most expensive hotels, a stay at The Emirates Palace doesn’t come cheap.

Visiting The Emirates Palace Hotel

Going on a self-guided tour of the hotel is free. Be aware that there is a dress code enforced throughout the hotel and shorts, flip-flops, sportswear, and beachwear are not allowed.  

Would you be tempted to stay here if the price was right?
