Burj Al Arab is an Icon, it is up there with the Eiffel Tower and the Sydney Opera House. EP is simply an expensive, classy hotel.

BAA beats EP even in luxury, the facilites are much better, the restaurants, views, transport, etc.

BAA marked the beginning of Arabian development, it was also the one which set the benchmark for the 7 star rating. It is a legend.

i agree with you totally on that, but i guess this poll wasnt created to stats teh facts, however, it was more of state your opinion,
and my definition of luxury doesnt have to mean, bright colors, gold every where and such ,
however IMO its more about subtle things, simplicity, and the flow of colors and calmness of the colors,
but then again, this is MY OPINION, and everyone is welcome to share their opinion....
Okay, this is my opinion too, I just want to say it, not to disagree with you.:)

I feel that real luxury does not come from decor, but what it really offers. I can tell you that many boutique hotels in Italy are more tastefully decorated than the EP. BAA has duplex apartments, helicopters, Rolls, etc. Such things simply make the gold and bright colours a tacky topping to pure luxury.

I honestly feel that EP is just a more expensive version of Kuala Lumpur's Palace of the Golden Horses

Which is why I voted for BAA.

Btw, what exactly is the poll measuring?
