Dubai:  Superlative-hungry Dubai is adding another to its list: A 72-story hotel billed as the world's tallest.

The JW Marriott's Marquis Dubai formally opened on Tuesday after gaining the title of tallest hotel from Guinness World Records.

At 355 metres, the hotel would tower over skylines in most cities. But in Dubai, it sits in the shadow of its more than twice-as-high neighbour, the Burj Khalifa, the world's tallest skyscraper at 828 meters.
