World's tallest hotel opens in Dubai
Record-hungry Dubai is adding another landmark to its collection. At an astonishing 1,164 feet from sidewalk(人行道) to roof, the JW Marriott Marquis(JW万豪酒店) in Dubai officially opened as the world's tallest hotel. To give you an idea just how big that is, that is just 85 feet shorter than the Empire State Building in New York City. The hotel, which has snagged(抢先获得) the Guinness Book of World Records title from the 1,093 feet Dubai's Rose Tower, will span two towers each with 804 rooms, when complete. Right now only one tower is open. It also has nine restaurants, four other bars, a 32 yard swimming pool, a spa that features a hammam((土耳其式)澡堂,浴室)Turkish bath, a health club, and a meeting space that holds up to 1000 people at one time. If you're thinking about booking a room, rates for one person per night start at $326. The Marriott Marquis is fittingly near other record breaking landmarks in Dubai like the Dubai Mall, world's largest shopping center, and the Burj Khalifa(哈里发塔), the world's tallest building. The UAE (阿拉伯联合酋长国)city also holds the Guinness Book of World Records for the largest automated (自动化的)parking facility in the world and the world's largest acrylic (丙烯酸)panel at the Dubai Aquarium & Underwater Zoo. It is also trying for a new record in the category(种类) of “largest convoy(车队) of off-road(越野的) vehicles.” It is so obsessed(着迷) with breaking records that the Guinness World Records just announced it is setting up its Middle East operations in Dubai.

Summary:
The report tells us that Dubai, the country which is obsessed with breaking the Guinness World Records, adding another landmark which is the world’s tallest hotel to its collection. At the same time, the report introduces the feet, facilities, money and location of hotel.

Own views:
I have two different viewpoints of this text.
For one thing, it’s reasonable for Dubai to concentrate on breaking the Guinness World Records....
