As it is, 34 bedrooms is’nt much for a city centre hotel. Not very competative. However, I’m kinda tired of all this gutting and restructuring of buildings in Dublin. Don’t forget across the river the Ormonde faces the same fate. It’s got now that it’s hard to find a commercial building in Dublin which has remained intact since the day it was first built. Still Foster’s plan looks good. Temple Bar is a bit staid too now. At least I bet if it gets the go ahead it will be completed before the U2 Tower. Anyway, anyone who buys this hotel will gut it and do the same, so may as well let Foster have a go than some other firm of half wits.
Compare this make-over of the Clarence to that of the Ormonde’s. The Clarence looks far more swankier.
