Unleashed: The World’s Biggest Hotel is in Saudi Arabia

Saudi Arabia is known for its over the top decadence.  Whether that is proven by the architecture, lavish lifestyles, or the growing business sector from that portion of the world, it is no surprise that the world’s largest hotel would begin construction in this nation.  The Abraj Kunda, world’s biggest hotel,  will open in Mecca in 2017, will house ten thousand bedrooms, seventy restaurants, and four helipads.  The hotel itself will be forty five stories tall, and it will be composed of twelve fortress style towers.  Not a bad place to lay your head!
