I'm not an expert, but I don't think they will. They look too close together. It would make the hotel rooms too crowded. The positioning of those foundations is strange, they don't seem to be in any kind of order, it looks as though they are just randomly scattered around the place.

Are there any pro's that know whether this is due to construction difficulties or is there an engineering reason why they are placed as they are?

The piles are there to support the raft foundation and to distribute the weight of the tower to the ground. They aren't neccessarily related to the positioning of the building's columns.

Well ... open your eyes, open your ears, show attention to what's being said and you'll be surprised how many new things someone can learn.
