The world's tallest usable full hotel building. If you counted mixed use buildings the Jin Mao Tower in China would be the tallest which is only half hotel.

In english "Burj al Arab" means The Arabian Tower

Burj al Arab was one of the most expensive buildings ever built. It is one of the world's only two "7 star" hotels.

Burj al Arab is shaped like a sail.
