The Hilton San Francisco and Towers is the largest hotel in the SF Bay Area and the state of California. It's even larger than the Anaheim Hilton in the Los Angeles area. It has 19,11 rooms. The original portion of the hotel was built in 1964 and two additions were constructed in 1971 and 1987.

I believe the Hilton-Americas is the largest hotel in Houston at over 1200 rooms.
If not, its the largest convention hotel in Houston.

First World Hotel is the largest hotel in the world by rooms. It comprises Tower 1 and Tower 2, each with 28 floors, and has a total of 6,118 rooms. It is one of the six hotels located in Genting Highlands, about 55 km northeast of Kuala Lumpur and standing 1,850m above sea level.

On December 18, 2006, Guinness World Records listed the First World Hotel as the world's largest hotel by the number of rooms and not by the size of built up area. First World Hotel is adjoined to the First World Plaza, which boasts 500,000 sq feet of indoor theme park, shopping centre and food galore.

The Genting Highlands Resort is owned and managed by Malaysian gaming conglomerate Genting Group, which is also Britain's largest casino operator and is currently building a casino and a Universal theme park in Singapore.

The former Hotel de Mexico was supposed to be the largest hotel in Mexico City, but it was converted into an office building in the early-to-mid 90s. I don't even know what the largest hotel in Mexico City is now.

This will be Melbourne and Australia's biggest hotel once completed. With 658 rooms, not big...but it looks great.

I think the exterior is nearly completed right now, but I can't (be bothered to) find a recent image

Largest in Dallas is the Sheraton Dallas Hotel (formerly Adam's Mark Hotel and the Southland Center). Two of these buildings were originally built as office buildings and only one of the towers was built as a Sheraton Hotel. The hotel has 1,842 guestrooms.

With the existing Crown towers:
482 rooms





And the Crown Promenade(the glass building in the middle of the above photo.
465 rooms

This will give the combined complex 1,605 rooms.

New Zealands largest Hotel

The Rendezvous Hotel in Auckland has 452 rooms. Not that large at all but with only 4.3 million people, it's large.

Not much of a design either.

I don't quote my own posts in this forum (or any forum), but there is another hotel under construction which is expected to eclipse the Swissotel Stamford Hotel. It is the 2,600-room Marina Bay Sands Hotel and Casino. It is expected to open in 2010.

Is that a platform on top of all 3 towers with gardens and trees on it?
