The Armani Hotel, located in Dubai's Burj Khalifa, the world's tallest building, has opened after a week-long delay due to the effects of the Icelandic volcano.

Designed by Giorgio Armani, the hotel features 160 rooms and is located on the building's 38th and 39th floors and includes numerous restaurants, a spa and an outdoor swimming pool.

The hotel is the first part of the 2,717ft Burj Khalifa to open to the public since the 124th-floor observation deck welcomed its first visitors in January, according to npr.org.

Burj Khalifa's developer, Emaar Properties, plans to open more Armani-branded hotels. The next one will be in Milan.
