Do you love large resorts, with thousands of rooms and lots of amenities?   We've got good and bad news for you.


The good news is that a 10,000 room luxurious hotel complex is scheduled to open in 2017.  The bad news is that you're unlikely to be able to get a room there because it is being built in Mecca and, as we've discussed before on this site, you're unlikely to be able to get a visa to visit Saudi Arabia.


Abraj Kudai — which will be the world’s largest hotel complex­ — will feature 12 towers with 10,000 total rooms and cost about $3.5 billion. The buildings will feature 70 restaurants, rooftop helipads, entire floors built just for royalty, and a convention center.  Ten of the 12 towers will be rated as four-star establishments, the other two will provide five-star accommodations.

I know it sounds like sour grapes, but anyway: after experiencing big-hotel check-in at Las Vegas, I don't want to go to this one anyway.

The best part of every trip is realizing that it has upset your expectations

Last night I had what seemed like a very long dream, hanging out with Joan Rivers.  Not that it wasn't fun, but I'm as likely to think about staying in a hotel of this size anywhere as it is likely for that dream to come true.
