This Is Rich: Emirates Palace, Abu Dhabi

Is this the world’s richest hotel? Or is it the world’s most high tech hotel? You decide… The Emirates Palace Hotel features tons of marble, countless fountains and chandeliers, plus — get this — a thousand miles of fiber optic and broadcast cable feeding 302 superior rooms and 92 incredible suites. Nightly price range? Just $600 to $12,000.

Owned by the German Kempinski chain, the Emirates Palace wants to attract government conferences as well as the well heeled. And why not? Each guest gets a $2,500 Linux-based hand-held computer to control each room’s 50″ plasma TV, stereo system and 30 lights. Or to call room service, record a TV program, or download a movie. For more information, please visit Emirates Palace.
