As most of the ppl already concluded it's tacky, I agree . Maybe architecture by itself is not that bad but these colors are ruining it all .

The Venetian in Las Vegas now has over 7,000 rooms. I heard the MGM grand might be expanding to about 6,500 rooms as well. So this monstrosety is not the world's largest hotel.

They are all going to be surpassed by a hotel in Dubai that will probably have more than 8,000 hotel rooms.

Tropicana proposed a 10,000 room expansion in Las Vegas. But they are having management and financial troubles and will probably lose their gaming license and have to sell the place, so that expansion probably won't happen. Plus the rendering looked horrible.

Ah, just got info that Jumeirah Royal Hotel will have much bigger rooms as first predicted so there will be only like 1,500 rooms with standard close to Burj Al Arab. And it will be the tallest hotel in the world with 355m.

PS: That is just my vision.

On the other hand, its so bad it's good. I would actually like to go and stay here, in a sick and debased scream-inducing kind of way.

As a Malaysian, I must apologise on behalf of my once proud country, to the world. I'm so sorry.

No need to apologize. Your first line said it all. The color is what distinguishes the hotel. I like it. It's different.

First World Hotel is a standard 3-star hotel at most of its rooms. Below the hotel, boasts a 500,000 square feet plaza called First World Plaza, houses shopping arcades, food outlets, Starworld casino, The Pavilion and the Genting indoor theme park. It has a stage for weekly performances (such as magical show, musical show, etc) at the area called Time Square, surrounded by a replica of the Statue of Liberty and Oscar statue. Other facilities including Watersplash Pool (an indoor water theme park for children), Genting Sky Venture (Asia's first free fall simulator) and a cineplex.

First World Hotel main entrance forms the lush and grand tropical rainforest and a spacious Spanish courtyard at its lobby.




On December 18, 2006, Guinness World Records listed the First World Hotel as the world's largest hotel [1]. It has a total of 6,118 rooms and is part of the Genting Highlands Resort. The hotel has two towers where each tower has 23 floors. The hotel is managed by First World Hotel and Resorts Sdn. Bhd, one of the two major companies operating at Genting Highlands Resorts along with Resorts World Bhd.

DAMN that's disgusting, btw, this is NOT the world's largest hotel. The Venetian/Palazzo is the World's largest hotel and CIty Center will be the WLH by next year ( i guess in 2009 or 10).

Yeah, Venetian/Palazzo is right now the biggest, but I don't think CityCenter will be bigger. But even if CityCenter is bigger if you count all the condo rooms since most of them will be rented out as hotel rooms, the Venetian has just anounced plans to possibly DOUBLE their size to a total of over 14,000 rooms by adding a new megaresort connected to the other two behind Palazzo. It will go on the site of the present Sands Expo center (green area on site map). First they have to build a new Expo center (yellow area on site map) east of the Wynn employee parking garage. I think the new Expo Center is already approved and it will have over 2 million sq. feet of exhibit space.

New Resort with possibly 4,000-7,000 more hotel and condo keys.

Nice plan for a new Expo centre, but I don't ever, EVER want this expansion to happen in our lifetime. I don't even want a new Sands Expo Centre, neither.

nooo!!first world is more biger than venetian

What is the largest hotel in the world?
FROM ASK YAHOO
We probably should have guessed, but a search on "largest hotel in the world" (including the quotation marks) lead us to Las Vegas, of course. Going by the number of guest rooms, three
of the largest hotels in the world all spring up from Sin City, the land of extravagance and larger-than-life everything.

Although we heard rumors of a hotel in Thailand with 5100 rooms, we could find scant evidence of anything larger than the MGM Grand, which boasts a whopping 5034 rooms. Amenities include a sports arena, entertainment dome, and a wedding chapel, not to mention numerous bars and restaurants.

With 4,408 rooms, the distinctively shaped Luxor is the second largest hotel in the world. The 30-story pyramid is topped by one of the world's brightest beams of light, which illuminates the Veags skyline.

The Venetian, a mammoth 12-million-square-foot casino, convention center, resort, and entertainment complex comes in third place. Opened in May of 1999, the hotel offers 4049 guest suites, a 65,000 square foot spa, 16 restaurants, 2 museums, a mall, and recreations of all of Venice's major attractions, right down to the Grand Canal. And its standard guest suites have been dubbed the largest standard hotel rooms by the Guiness Book of World Records.

If completed as planned, the First World Hotel and Resorts complex in Payang, Malaysia, may wrest the title of largest hotel from the MGM. It currently offers 3228 rooms, but plans call for a grand total of 6300 rooms. IAND ITS FULLY COMPLETE NOW!!

FROM GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS
Guinness World Records listed the First World Hotel in Genting Highlands, Malaysia[2] as the world's largest hotel. It has a total of 6,118 rooms and is part of the Genting Highlands Resort and Casino. The First World Plaza which is joined to the two hotel towers boasts 500,000 square feet (50,000 m²) of indoor theme park, shopping centres, casino gaming areas, and eateries.
