Sorry, but didn't you ask these same questions before? Anyway, I disagree with Yellow about the replacement being a "nicer one."

The reason the hotel tower is being replaced is because the ceiling heights are too low for such a luxury hotel to compete with others, and the developer wants to add office and residential components. There will be two towers actually.

I think it's safe to call this clean destruction.

I don't remember. Maybe?

My first guess is that it wasn't to built to standard for modern times, but at least something will replace it.
