ICC also has a hotel at the top, so which one is the tallest hotel?

Yeah the Burj has the Armani hotel but it will be in the lower levels and would not affect this record.

On one of the pictures on the previous page you can see that the cladding has reached the cranes. Since someone said that the cladding system does only allow installing the elements on the top of each other, It think we won't see any progress until the 2 big cranes are put down... I would like to see the hole cladded sooner...

Interesting facts:
The worlds highest hotel ,outdoor swimming pool, indoor swimming pool will be on ICC not SWFC.
'Moreover ICC and 2IFC in Hong Kong will have and still have the highest office floor in China instead of SWFC and Taipei 101.
