In recent years, fashion designers have expanded their global empires to include more than just clothes and accessories. Big names like Roberto Cavalli, Missoni and, most recently, Giorgio Armani have ventured in to property development with stylish hotels and clubs opening across the globe. This week, Armani's Dubai hotel was unveiled which is part of the Burj Dubai tower (the world's tallest building) and will officially open in March. It is the first of many for the Italian designer who also has plans for a resort in Marrakech and for villas in Marassi in Egypt. This got me thinking, have you or would you ever stay at a designer hotel?
