The 50's and 60's were weird, but cool in a strange way.

They don't call it Googie on the East Coast. Over here, at least in New Jersey, they call it Doo Wop. There are subsets of Doo Wop, too, by the way. New buildings are then called Neo Doo Wop.
I'm was just impressed with how well they replicated the style. Even I would think it's from the early 60s.

wow, it's hard to believe that it was built in the sixties. If someone has said that it was built this year I would believe it without a doubt.

yes, but I've seen now that it's been restored recently, so I guess that its contemporary look it's due to the recent work.
Anyway I absolutely love it.

I am really just splitting hairs here, the above hotel is really a mix of the the two. But Doo Wop, when used in reference to architecture, is actually different from Googie. Googie is more space-age, where as Doo Wop is more about sparkle and glitz. Doo Wop borrowed not just from Googie (and vice versa), but also quite heavily from Art Deco and Streamlining. Doo Wop loved metallic paints and fabrics. Probably the best way to compare the two is that Googie is Jazz and Easy Listening, while Doo Wop is rock and roll.

Sorry, worthless drivel. I now return you to your regularly scheduled thread...

That exterior is weird, but the interior is just beautiful
