They needed to pull that canopy with the cylindrical cut outs out about 15' and this would start to sing. Its a bit flat as it turned out.

opinion ... of course.

*Sheesh* They hung the sign sideways. Hopefully someone catches that mistake. Embarrassing.

I don't understand why this one, and the 2 next door, needed to be landscrapers like this. We talk about this whole area as a perfect one for height, particularly according to the FAA guidelines, then this is what we get. Out of the 3, this one has probably the worst design and materials, especially that front of it.

I also don't understand why the other 2 went even shorter than this, while being further away from the North End. It feels like a gigantic missed opportunity.

Because they're on top of the Central Artery Tunnel, which can only support so much.

The Marriott side looks cheap as hell.

I like how the letters melt into the building like there's more depth there. Interesting touch I personally havent seen

I hadn't even noticed that yet. That is stunning.

I can't believe this is almost finished after so many years of planning. It looks good, and it will bring in a very good mix of people.

Have they begun work on Valenti Square, or is it still too soon?

Courtyard is taking reservations and open for business. Still some construction going on around/inside the site, but windows being washed and landscaping completed.

What is it with post ww2 hotels being so damn ugly and/or boring?

Some of the ugliest buildings in the city like The Revere, the Sheraton, the Marriott Copley, etc. Especially since prewar hotels are some of the most beautiful buildings in architecture.

How many people could afford to be tourists before the war? How many of them flew around to different cities?

Anything is going to lower in quality when it becomes democratized, like travel. Might as well ask why flying isn't what it used to. The market has spoken, and it demands lower prices.

Not defending any of these buildings though, they're pretty garbage.

Actually, they're just garbage.
