Armani Hotel Dubai, United Arab Emirates

The Armani Hotel Dubai, Giorgio Armani's debut hotel, occupies the first eight floors plus levels 38 and 39 of the Burj Khalifa, currently the world's tallest skyscraper and the epicenter of Dubai's fashionable Downtown district. Orientalist gold-leaf flash being so last year, the 160 rooms are soberly luxurious, decorated with obscure marble and the signature brown, gray, and taupe palette of the Armani Casa textile collection; even pencil sharpeners and sugar cubes carry the Armani logo. In all guest rooms, there are floor-to-ceiling windows and curving walls, whose handle-less sliding panels reveal secret walk-in closets, flat-screen TVs, and refreshment stations. In place of butlers, Armani-clad "lifestyle managers," summoned by phone or free Wi-Fi computer click, solve guest dilemmas such as where to hem a designer Abaya. The Armani/Spa offers bespoke massages according to your needs, from enhancing vitality to releasing pain. Eight hotel restaurants and the Armani Privé nightclub attract well-dressed locals on weekends.—Susan Hack

What to pack: A pair of Alaïa's metallic gladiator sandals to dress up your designer Abaya.
