Dubai's tourism department has completed an inspection of the Armani Hotel at Burj Khalifa ahead of its scheduled opening in March.
The hotel is one of several luxury hospitality developments at the world's tallest tower and the first hotel to be opened by the fashion designer Giorgio Armani.
Marc Dardenne, chief executive of Armani Hotels and Resorts, welcomed the delegation and explained the facilities and services at the property.
After the inspection, the tourism delegation went on an informal tour of Burj Khalifa and officials from the building's developer, Emaar Properties, provided a briefing about the multi-million dollar project which opened at the beginning of the month.
The tower has already attracted between 3,000 and 5,000 visitors who have come to use the observation deck on 124th floor.
Earlier this month, a YouGov Siraj survey of 811 UAE residents showed that 90 per cent believe the Burj Khalifa has boosted national pride.
