From mega-posh architectural wonders to resorts autonomous enough to be small cities, the best hotels in Dubai can validate even the most extravagant champagne dreams. With a diverse range of styles and price ranges, you can match your mood to your resort, whether it’s seaside relaxation or a fortress in the desert.

If you’re wondering where to stay in Dubai, know that some of the world's most innovative and luxurious hotels can be found here. The most extravagant line Jumeirah Beach along the Gulf, and those on Sheikh Zayed Road come in close second. Homier accommodations are in the Old Town of Deira and Bur Dubai. A trip to Dubai isn't complete without a visit to the only seven-star hotel in the world, the Burj Al Arab. This sail-shaped hotel rises 1,053 feet from a manmade island. All of the 202 suites are bi-level with glass windows, and there's butler service on every floor. Those here on business will appreciate the private bars and office spaces.
