Not getting any Thunderbirds vibe from The Big Sleep. It's hideous and I'd quite happily see it demolished. I like Brunel House, now that's classily Thunderbirds to me.

The Park Inn is also hideous. The Marriott is a fine building though. What's to dislike?

I've always quite liked the Big Sleep, but have never been able to work out why. Maybe because it's a bit different. I wish it was a different colour to that green though.

That little office building next to it is ripe for replacement with another tower though.

I dont like the Marriott due to its location, the amount of space the building takes up (especially the car park section) and i don't like the 80's look of the building. i think this space can be much better utilised being next to the Hayes, Mill Lane, Library etc, i nice green space with pop ups and street food would be lovely by there. surrounded by larger hotels on the periphery such as Sleepers, Clayton and the new custom house one.

The size of the footprint of the Marriot has always been a problem.When it was built it had an 'out of town' rather than a city centre feel. It was improved a bit when the new library development replaced that god-awful surface car park. I'd be happy to see the tower itself stay but the newish two storey car park is dead space in what should be a prime location.
