Once you've decided where you're taking your holiday this year, choosing the hotel at which you want to stay can prove difficult. One member of your holiday party might want to stay in a hotel that's located near the destination's best bars and nightclubs, while another might have their hearts desire set on a quiet hotel by the beach. However, there's one thing you're all likely to agree on - that a great hotel room must have a spectacular view, whatever its location.
If stunning hotel views is what you're after, visit Canada and consider the many hotels overlooking the breathtaking Niagara Falls. Naturally, a 'Falls-view' room will be more expensive than one overlooking the featureless downtown area. Sometimes the 'view premium' is as much as double, but if you are travelling all that way to see one of the world's natural wonders, isn't it worth it? Another fine example of the premium charge principle is in New York. Hotels there can safely charge more for a room with a view of the impressive Manhattan skyline than of the hotel dustbins. But then again, if you are flying all the way to New York, wouldn't you want to see the unforgettable skyline rather than the back of the hotel?
And if you can't benefit from natural views, rest assured it's possible to build your own. Situated in the heart of the Arabian Desert, Dubai was a small city with big ideas ten years ago. Today, it is a major city with fabulous man-made off-shore islands and many superb hotels, turning it into one of the world's biggest tourist and business hot-spots. As a result the city's population has doubled in the last ten years, now numbering almost 1.2 million, and property prices have gone through the roof.
The tallest free-standing hotel in the world is in Dubai: The Burj Al-Arab towers 1053 feet above the beautiful Persian Gulf, providing some of the most stunning hotel views anywhere in the world. Resembling the sail of an Arab Dhow and built on a man-made offshore island, this iconic structure dominates the Dubai skyline. It is one of the many luxury Dubai hotels that offer their guests the ultimate in opulence as well as stunning views of the Persian Gulf, the city of Dubai and the Arabian Desert.
One thing is certain with stunning hotel views: if you want to benefit from them you will have to pay a premium. But, another certainty is that it will be worth it!
