Armani Hotel Dubai, the first hotel to launch under the collaboration of Giorgio Armani and Dubai's Emaar Properties, is to open in March 2010.
The hotel will be housed exclusively in the world's tallest building, the Burj Dubai, which opened for business today.
Armani Hotel Dubai will be the first in a series of hotels, resorts and residences designed by Armani, which will be opened around the world.
The project managers say that the hotel will be defined by its unique location, high standards of aesthetics and service excellence, making it the most exclusive destination in the city.
Online bookings for the Dubai site will go live later this month while
subsequent Armani developments will take place in a range of international destinations including New York, Tokyo, Shanghai and London.
The entire Burj Dubai development will encourage further high level business and property investment in Dubai. Emaar Properties said that in addition to being the world's tallest building, the Burj Dubai complex will soon be a vibrant community that will also boast the world's largest shopping mall, the Dubai Mall.
