Hi all.

I found this on the net. It's a shame it was put up in such low resolution ...

I saw above that a hotel will have 200 rooms over 7 floors. That would be an average of 28 Hotel rooms per floor which I suppose is possible, small hotel rooms though. However the Marriott Marquis New York has 50 rooms per floor. So yes I suppose it is possible to squeeze 200 hotel rooms on to 7 floors. Also I am a skyscraper geek so I realized that if 120 of the floors in the kingdom tower (I didn't use 167 because several upper floors wouldn't be able to hold 20 hotel rooms because the floor plates gets smaller and because the hotel would need lobbies and entertainment levels along with mechanical floors.) was jammed with this many hotel rooms it would have 2200, 2400 hotel rooms.
