Top 5 Largest Hotels In The World

I was curious as to how many rooms has the largest hotel in the world. So I started to look on the Internet for data in this direction. I wasn’t prepared for the result! 7500 rooms – yup, this is the number of rooms of the largest hotel in the world. They surely need some good maps, right?

So let’s see the Top 5 largest hotels in the world

1. Izmailovo Hotel Moscow 7,500 rooms, 4 towers, Alpha, Beta, Vega, Gamma-Delta, 30-stories each

2. First World Hotel Malaysia 6,118 rooms – As you can see this is in fact the most colorful hotel too 🙂

5. Mandalay Bay (Inc. TheHotel) 3,223 & 1118 Las Vegas 4,341

There are discussions I see online, due to the fact that on Wikipedia the second place is occupied by

The Venetian & The Palazzo Las Vegas 7,117 52, 37, and 14 floors (3 towers)

and the First World Hotel in Malaysia comes on the 3rd place and MGM Grand Las Vegas becomes 4th hotel and the 5th place is occupied by:
Sands Cotai Central Cotai Strip, Macau 6,000 4 hotel towers. Conrad Macau (600), Holiday Inn Macao Cotai Strip (1,400), Sheraton (2,000) and Sheraton Towers (2,000)

Some argue though that the Venetian and The Palazzo in Las Vegas are in fact 2 hotels considered together – so cannot be counted as one hotel. The Sands Cotai Central has it’s opening scheduled for this summer – so for the moment it is not actually on the list.

    I stayed at the MGM Grand a while back, and yes, it’s big. The lobby sprawls — you can even have you picture taken with a lion cub, a descendent, we’re told, of the famed MGM movie lion. If that isn’t enough, the hotel opens onto an enormous shopping center where, in addition to acres of stores and restaurants, you can watch TV shows being taped and channel your inner Nielsen Ratings to rate TV shows. Talk about full service.

    I also stayed at the Rossiya Hotel in Moscow, which with 6,000 rooms was once the world’s biggest — and ugliest — hotel. Built to house communist bigwigs, it stood next to the Kremlin, so the views of St. Basil’s were terrific. Everything else was ghastly, including the food and the smell. Mercifully, it was torn down in 2006.

      So you had a great experience, and an owful one. I’m glad though that you had the chance to stay at MGM and, from what you’re saying, the view made the stay in Rossiya Hotel worth the wile 🙂 Thank you for sharing your experience 😉
