The Grand Hotel at Turtle Bay´╗┐ was conceived as the jewel of Turtle Bay. Perched on a prominent point at the edge of Turtle Beach; it is the focal point of the waterfront area. We had a limited area to build, but we wanted something big and proud without overwhelming everything around it.

I wanted to build something reminiscent of what you might see in a florida beach town. I'm not an architect, so I cannot say if it is of any particular style (if any). We had tons of diorite and nothing to do with it. So, I chose it as the base material for the Grand Hotel. Since diorite is so bright, I used dark_oak for the roof and trim. Black glass windows, light gray terracotta floors in the main atrium and white terracota in the observation hall on the third floor round out the look.

The hotel is far from finished. Not having the eye for design, I have not done much on the interior furnishings, or landscaping (I'm no grian). Many of the rooms have yet to be laid out and some elements are waiting for the MC 1.14 release. There is talk about putting elevators in where the closets are near the front desk. Check back in on our progress, we will post the schematic... Any feedback welcomed. I will post a schematic if there is enough positive interest.

The first elevator has been ironed out and is now fully functional. We decided to use a minecart elevator due to it's simplicity. We just had to make it fit our building properly. Pictures added to show the use of the Elevator! Also, we added a 3rd floor storage area. Let us know what you think...
