I wonder how many people are going to pull in looking for the emergency room entrance?

Capping I-35 would help.

Agreed, I had that thought as well. Maybe we can put this in the "benefits" column:

"Drivers don't have to see the ugly backside of Homewood Suites, which has been proven to cause viewers to close their eyes in disgust. Such reactions are undeniably dangerous to themselves and other drivers at highway speeds."

I've been meaning to do an update on this for a while, but I keep nodding out while uploading pics of it.

It's a freeway fronting mid market highrise motor hotel. It's not the kind of location that will produce amazing architecture.

I'm digging the dark colors. Not sure if it's just wall installation or not but it looks a million times better than the yellow they had.

I kind of hope they stick with that clown school orange look in the last rendering. We have plenty of ugly earth tone budget hotels, but no orange ones.

Did you forget about the big giant orange Hilton a few blocks up?

I'm liking the colors. The original rendering had tan and orange, just about the most outdated and ugly colors you could have. I appreciate they're at least smart about the colors on this building.
