This building is possibly Beijing's ugliest one.
And yes, it's a government building - the China Travel Service (CTS) Hotel.
The gray hotel is topped with gold-coloured tiles. But what has to be the most bizarre thing are these turrets on the corners. I wonder what having a corner room is like with all those angles on the windows.
The building is located near a major four-leaf clover freeway so I pass by it quite often. And it's a piece of architecture I wish I didn't have to see! While it does stand out, it sticks out for all the wrong reasons.
Hopefully CTS will want to update its look and get with the times. Soon.
