Does anyone have any information such as who the architect is and the year of construction of that circular, as in the Capital Records Building, hotel that's just South of the 405 around Long Beach?

Last time I was by there it was a Holiday Inn. There's also circular ones in
San Diego (stayed at that one) by the I-5 and LA (Brentwood) by the Getty by the I-405. Mighta been a standard design repeated in several locations-I think they are all still Holiday Inns.

Have you seen the reworking of the West Los Angeles ex-Holiday Inn location?
It's now the Hotel Angeleno. I have alwys had good experiences in Joie de Vivre hotels.

This one in Orlando is similar, but I'm not sure if it's the same architect as the Holiday Inns. It's a Sheraton now, and it used to be a HoJo's. I've stayed there a few times, and I asked for the top floor. Nice views!

Also, I love the huge globe sign that Sheraton has put on the top of it.

I love that style of building. They look like giant curlers.
