The Richest is counting down the top ten biggest hotels in the world as of 2014. We will count them down based on the number of guest rooms available. Let's get the records straight. Different sites report different numbers of rooms. This count is based on the most recent statistics to be found on these hotels. These hotels are prodigious examples of human construction, greater than some of the natural wonders of the world. They contain thousands of rooms, observatories, lounges, restaurants, malls, theatres, and other fanciful attractions to keep guests from ever wanting to go outside. These picks are from all over the world. You may have visited a few of these hotels yourself, but don't think your travels are over yet! New hotel openings are just around the corner!
Honourable mention goes to The Makkah Royal Clock Tower Hotel in Saudi Arabia, opened in 2010. Various Canadian newspapers recorded this hotel as the largest, having 8,000 rooms, but in actuality, the specs for this building only list 1,005, and since then the booking site has changed the number of rooms to 1,299. This hotel does get some credit for its size. The hotel itself boasts 3,200 square feet of space. The hotel is part of the Abraj al-Bait shopping center complex which contains other guest rooms. This part of the complex has an estimated value of three billion dollars US. The tower itself stands 1,970 feet tall, making it the tallest clock tower in the world, and the clock face itself is the largest clock in the world, at 151 feet in diameter, much taller than the Big Ben clock tower in London. This luxury hotel seems to be in an ideal location, but people have criticized it for commercializing the Islamic pilgrimage site.

This gargantuan hotel may take a while to surpass in size. The complex was built in 1979 originally, and consists of four hotels with 30 floors each, all within a close proximity to each other. Built on former Romanov land, the hotel housed athletes during the 1980 Moscow Olympics. The four sections are named Alfa, Beta, Vega, and Gamma-Delta, and together they have 7,500 rooms. This hotel rates at three stars, and is located close to many tourist attractions.
