Burj Al Arab

Dubai, United Arab Emirates

Billed by some as the world's first 7-star hotel but in fact a deluxe 5-star. Still, the rooms start at $1,000...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Burj_al-Arab - There are NO 7 Star hotels, just hyperbole from the hotel owners. Wikipedi provides the facts - it's a deluxe 5 star hotel, five stars being the highest rating given any hotel. What some folks won't do to suck more of your money out of your purse/wallet...
