This may be a small build, but there's a great story behind it. Be sure to read it all.
About this creation
We’re back on the Brickford Summer Tour. From an overly popular water park, we take you to a slowly failing hotel. This place was once the place to be: over 300 guest rooms, 12 floors, two large pools (with hot tubs), 8 restaurants all with different cuisines, a gym, a spa, a kids’ club, and even a waterslide from the 4th floor down to the ground. Now, the hotel had its annual inspection, and the board was fined 12 billion Monies (around 3.5 billion USD) for stealing furniture from Modular Street’s most exquisite properties. Due to the extremely hefty fine, they had to demolish almost everything on the lot, and are left with this. The property itself is not too shabby, but barely anyone comes to visit anymore. It is said that there is still some stolen furniture from buildings 10218, 10224, 10232, and 10243.
Let’s begin our tour of the hotel.
The rather small pool. Why are there 7 chairs if not all of them are needed?
Every month, an average of 3 children get injured from attempting to climb these poorly built rocks.
Now, we will go inside via the sliding doors, and we’ll take a look at each of the five floors (rhyme intended).
The lobby’s once-beautiful decor was completely stripped down after the inspection. While it is still functional, it is pretty lacking compared to what it was before. Here, you can find the stolen desk from 10224 Modular Street.
This hotel lost its Starbucks café after the inspection and opened its own knock-off, Delicious Coffee. It has high-speed Wi-Fi in case you need to read some emails at midnight and your room’s internet just doesn’t seem to work. Instead of having a newsstand, Delicious Coffee embeds the latest issue of MOCpages News into their tables every day. Very convenient.
And they have stolen the concession counter from 10232 Modular Street.
A short trip up the not-so-grand-anymore staircase takes you to the meeting room. They even managed to incorporate the fish tank from 10218 Modular Street. The elevator doesn’t actually stop at this floor, so businessmen get a brief workout (as if the 1km walk from the parking lot to the hotel door wasn’t enough) by going up the staircase before their meeting. Some even go up and down several times.
Up here is the only restaurant that survived the inspection: The Highlander. It used to be a luxurious steakhouse for the hotel’s VIP guests, but now it serves pretty much everything. They are also guilty of stealing pretty much everything from Chez Albert at 10243 Modular Street after it closed down due to low business. You know, Brickfordians love McDonald’s so much that they introduced a new menu item: the Bigger Mac.
3rd and 4th Floors
Just two rooms out of the over 300 remain in service: one on each of the top two floors.
I hope you liked my story. That’s what happens when I have too few bricks. Anyway, my next project is a shopping mall, and I promise, I’ll spend some quality time on that.
