It's a designer dream set in the striking Burj Khalifa. The Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building, is home to the über elegant Armani Hotel Dubai, the world’s first hotel designed and developed by Giorgio Armani. The hotel occupies the Concourse Level to Level 8 and Levels 38 and 39 of the Burj.
Burj Khalifa, the world's tallest tower and perhaps the poshest address in the Gulf, is fast acquiring a distinct Indian identity. Indians now own more than a hundred of 900 apartments in Dubai's 828-metre skyscraper, a sign of the growing financial power of the community in the West Asia. "Indians have bought between 100 and 150 apartments since its completion in 2010," an executive of project developer Emaar Properties said on condition of anonymity.

The 117th corporate office floor in Burj Khalifa has been put up for auction by a US-based online auction website, with bids starting at Dh19.9 million.

Dubai's sluggish commercial real estate market is getting international attention of sorts as Emaar Properties, the emirate's largest developer, prepares to launch an online auction at its two-year-old, 3.3 million-square-foot Burj Khalifa, the world's tallest tower at 163 stories.
Dubai's hotels increased their rates by up to 20 per cent in the first quarter of this year as properties capitalised on the peak season and Arab Spring unrest continues to benefit the emirate more than one year on. "The first quarter was really amazing," said Wael El Behi, the executive assistant manager at the Ramada Downtown Dubai hotel.
Those searching for a more intimate dining experience can head to the Armani hotel, where it’s possible to book a table in the kitchen and watch the chef rustle up a fare dreamt up by the billionaire designer Giorgio Armani himself.
