Am I really the only one who totally doesn't like it?

It's just a ugly box with on top of that a lot of different cladding which makes it look like they ran out of a certain material at some point and than used another one which ran out of supply aswell etc.

But that's just my opinion and looking through this forum it clearly isn't the general opinion.
You're not alone. As much as I want to be able to fully appreciate this building, I just can't force myself to like it, mostly because those strips of different cladding are so distracting. I don't hate the building, but I find myself grinding my teeth when I look at these photos.

Yes, the building looks just a box maybe because of its minimalist design. I think it still looks good because of the simplicity and compared to the establishments around it, it definitely looks better due to its full glass-like design..

I absolute adore boxy buildings, but I'm not too fond of the cladding for this one. It should have been one colour the entire way through.

Let's just say that it's not really an hotel. The name and the fact that you can pay by the hour should say enough.

Pelli designed this?! Must be his first ever box building, then. I guess he got tired of postmodernism.
