Eek. This should be a case study for how not to design a hotel. Predicting this will be torn down by 2035. Such a waste.

The fuck, did they build a 30 foot platform for this thing to sit on? How did that get approved?

I can usually try to find a reason for a design decision.
This one would be laziness. They could have put a lower level in on the site easily.
