Where are the world’s 10 largest hotels?

Just a few days ago, I have blogged about the top ten world’s best airports. Today, I felt like doing another top ten list in my blog here and the first thing that came to my mind is hotel. Did you notice that the subjects are all related to vacation? First is airport which is obviously a place you need to go before boarding a flight for a vacation, and now is hotel which is the place tourist would stay and rest during a vacation. My mind is all about vacation now. Can’t wait for my next oversea trip to Australia early next year.

So now, where are the world’s top 10 largest hotels? Can you make a guess? Largest here means highest number of rooms the hotel provides. Without wasting more time, here’s below is the list of the current world’s top 10 largest hotels:

  1. First World Hotel, Genting Highlands, Malaysia – 7351 rooms.


2. The Venetian & The Palazzo, Las Vegas, USA – 7117 rooms.


3. MGM Grand Las Vegas, Las Vegas, USA – 6852 rooms.


4. Disney’s All-Star Resort Complex (Music Resort + Sports Resort + Movies Resort), Orlando, USA – 5524 rooms.


5. Izmailovo Hotel, Moscow, Russia – 5000 rooms.

6. Wynn Las Vegas + Encore Las Vegas, Las Vegas, USA – 4750 rooms.

San Gorgonio Pass, Palm Springs, Wind turbines

7. Mandalay Bay + Delano + Four Seasons, Las Vegas, USA – 4426 rooms.


8. Luxor Las Vegas, Las Vegas, USA – 4408 rooms.


9. Ambassador City Jomtien, Pattaya, Thailand – 4219 rooms.


10. Excalibur Hotel & Casino, Las Vegas, USA – 4008 rooms.


Ahh…I’m tired of typing ‘Las Vegas’ again and again. Out of the top 10 largest hotels, 6 are in Las Vegas alone. Impressive. This small city, at the southern part of U.S. State of Nevada, is one of the most iconic and visited tourist destinations in the world. Hence, having many huge hotels in this city is reasonable I guess. It would be cool if I can visit Las Vegas some day. I can have a nice and relaxing vacation, try my luck in this city full of casinos, or even go a bit further to check out the ‘Area 51′. Haha…

This top ten world’s largest hotels’ list may be surprising to Malaysians as I believe many of us didn’t expect First World Hotel to not only being placed in this ranking, but also topped the list. Yes…First World Hotel at Genting Highlands, the entertainment complex at the peak which is only about 1 hour drive from Kuala Lumpur is the current world’s largest hotel with over 7300 rooms available. When the hotel opened its door about a decade ago, it has 6118 rooms and holds the title of the largest hotel in the world at that time. However, the expansion by The Venetian and The Palazzo in Las Vegas at 2008 ended the reign. And just by early this year, First World Hotel gets back the title when its Tower 2 Annex expansion is completed. The Venetian still holds another record, for having the world’s largest casino.

Out of the ten hotels above, the only hotel I have visited and stayed is obviously the No.1, First World Hotel which is just an hour drive from my home. I will always stay in that hotel when I go for an overnight trip to Genting because the room is cheap and the huge quantity of rooms available makes you no need to worry much on its availability. However, the room is very small (to make up for a LOT of rooms, hence the title it gained).
