From the editors of Condé Nast Traveler:The Address occupies 11 floors of a 63-story residential tower with views of the adjacent Burj Dubai, currently the world's tallest building. Most of the 196 rooms are huge, with balconies that overlook the hotel's green garden and swimming pool. The property's obsession with visuals extends to architecturally complex pastries served in the lobby coffee shop and to the mostly female staff, whose gray satin and silk gowns make some guests feel underdressed.
