there are still no renders I thought, but I think it won't take too much time before they will be presented at ssc by some of the forumguys/girls.
Their is no such thing as a 6 or 7 stars hotel. They stop counting at 5 stars.

The quality of 5 star hotels is ranging so to call a hotel of Al Burj Dubai quility 5 stars is very unfair.

There is one 6 star hotel in australia.

Ditto. Whoever says their hotel is 6 stars, is lying. 5 is as far as it goes. That's the scale for quality, a 6 is not needed, and won't make sense. If quality improves, the whole scale shifts, where the best have 5 stars.

You don't get what I'm saying. It doesn't matter how good it is, the scale is 1-5! The worst get a 1, the best get a 5.

For example, imagine if it was in percent. 5 would be a 100%. There is no 120%, not even if one 100% is much better than the other 100%. If you want to look at it a different way, say we express 1-5 in percentages. Anything over 80% would be a 5. So, it doesn't matter if you got 81% or 99%, you still get a 5.

Actually, talking about percentages, that would be a better way to rate hotels, restaurants, etc.

^ The people who "decide" that rankings are the same burokrats who "clasify" as highrises everything over 12 floors. Basically for them Burj Dubai and hundreds of thousands of buildings around the world, belong to the same category

It's not bullshit. I already explained it to you.

First of all, why do you keep referring to Turkey? What does Turkey have to do with it?
Second, when you say "midclass 5 star", that's contradicting itself. A mid-class hotel would be a 3 or 4 star. A 5 star hotel is not mid-class.

There are variations, but an A grade is still an A grade. You normally can't have over 100%.

In this case, BAA may be better than its peers, but it still must fall under the same ranking system and therefore should be considered a 5 (a really good 5 mind you )

Then "midlcass" should have 2 or 3 stars. Not 5.

The Sheraton, Hilton and even Four Seasons Hotels in Toronto, looks terrible from outside.

Afterall there are 5* Hotels and then is Burj Al Arab. Whoever has been there, has no doubt about it.
