China to Build Seven-Star Hotel

A "seven-star" hotel is in the works near China's capital city of Beijing. According to Beijing authorities, the project will be modeled after the $1.3 billion Burj Khalifa in Dubai, which, at 2,717 feet, is the world's tallest building. The yet-to-be named Chinese hotel will be 18 miles from Beijing in the Mentougou district, according to Agence France Presse.
