No offense, but the old building was the definition of ugly. Tacky, 90s, cheap postmodernism. This building is far better, in my opinion.

I know, but there was talk to convert it to offices. Who says the new facility is grander? Yes, the tower is but whoever designed that the connecting mall is demented.

Yet, that's because the taller building behind it camouflages how boring this building really is.

The new Ritz at ICC has far better facilities and is far more luxurious than the old building.

Looking at the old pictures I never saw what was so great about the Ritz-Carlton building. The new one looks better in my opinion. I've never noticed the Ritz-Carlton building before. I wish they utilized the land to build a much taller building. The prime location seems to great to build a "shorter" building...I say "shorter" because this would be one of the tallest buildings if it were built here in Austin.
