It's on the same site as the Worlds Tallest Building and Worlds Biggest Mall. Every room in it will be occupied every day of the year !!!!
There will never be a Vacancy.

That is what I thought, but Emaar is hosting the Arabian Hotel Investment Conference on 4th May 2008 in the Lake Hotel. Does that mean that the hotel will still be incomplete???:

Emaar Hospitality is hosting the reception on the second night at the Burj Lake Hotel. Delegates of AHIC will see for the first time up close stunning views of the world’s tallest tower, the Burj Dubai. A great new addition to the Dubai hotel scene, the Burj Lake Hotel will provide a taste of Emaar’s latest hotel brand looking for a home in capital markets around the world.

Buses will leave the Madinat Conference Centre at 18.30 for the Burj Lake Hotel.
