Too bad it has to remain a hotel, I'm about ready to get the hell out of The Peoples Republic of Kalifornia.
"Boobies"

I'm too lazy to read the article, so I'll just assume that global warming killed it.

Well, you can check out anytime you like.

I agree with the boobies (as I usually do when I want something...)

Toss the active hotel requirement and we'll talk.

How many people can you fit Inuit?
 
2013-02-05 03:14:34 AM  
I'll take two.

Can you see Russia from there?

I'm guessing not a Frank Lloyd Wright design. Looks more like the Architectural School of Blancmange.

I used to think about moving on up to AK.....

And then I met people who had fled here to WA from there and quickly changed my thinking.

What's wrong with us Alaskans, if you don't mind my asking?

Been up here since I was five, so I don't have a standard for 'normal'.

Why not Cool tag, Subby?

You missed a perfect opportunity there.

Yes "Boobies" are good! ;-)
Drop the hotel and throw in some boobies and we'll talk!

But you can never leave!
Welcome to the Hotel California!

Ok...I was told that it's dark, cold, and boring much of the year so the people are often fat, lazy, and alcoholic. Also that Juneau is a big mudhole and the mosquitos can consume you whole in ten minutes.
So, no thanks.

Good landmark to meet up and tourists would way insane amounts of money to stay in that shiathole.

I can't argue with any of this.  It's pretty accurate unless you're one of those nutcases that can convince yourself that below zero temps are fun and that playing in the snow is rad or something.

That's what I was thinking, make it livable and put in some pads for telescopes and cameras for the astronomy buffs and make a mint! I'd have no problem finding a chef to feed them, provided we could get decent supplies.
/boobies are optional and cost extra!

Boobies?  Correction:  Booby

I give you the Bobby Trap Strip Club in Orlando. (Now closed)
The nips were lit with pink lights, at night, as I recall.
 
2013-02-05 04:18:25 AM  
err:  Booby.....

FTFA: "The inadequate window size is the main reasons [sic] the structure was never operational."

Yes, it's clearly got nothing to do with the fact it's a moldy, ugly shiathole.

/reminds me of the delightfully tacky Xanadu houses in Florida, Wisconsin, and Tennessee, none of which I ever got to see.
//Would've liked to visit them in an ironic, "what kind of moron thought this was the future" kind of way.

Ah well I'm in Fairbanks so ONE of those things doesn't apply to me.

And I'm a Farker so the mosquito thing is a non-issue because I never leave my computer.

I drove by it a couple years ago on the way to a hotsprings, it looked interesting but dilapidated and abandoned.

Basil Fawlty - Manuel, my wife informs me that you're depressed. Now let me tell you. Depression is a very bad thing. Its like a virus. If you don't stamp on it you wake up one morning and find you can't face life any more!

Sybil Fawlty- And then you open a hotel.

/Don't mention the war!
 
2013-02-05 07:03:02 AM  
Says it was shut down due to windows being too small for code. Yeah, gubment, good work!
 
2013-02-05 08:14:20 AM  
That is one ugly building.

Aptly put.

Ugly as fark-all, in the middle of Alaska, and comes with covenants and expectations that are a burden on the purchaser. This will be an eyesore for years to come.
 
2013-02-05 10:21:07 AM  
The only thing that place is good for is a bonfire. What an ugly pile of crappy construction.
 
2013-02-05 12:46:06 PM  
Uniforms worn, so casually
The reindeer skins, the privacy

It's there that no one will stare
At your jaws and your long fur
The claws in your fingers

/oh, God no
//they don't know
///the new zero
 
2013-02-05 03:55:44 PM  
Okay, I worked the numbers and the only way to make this thing turn a profit is to build ANOTHER ONE right next to it, you get rid of the old windows completely and replace them with a clear band of windows, put huge nipples on the top (VIP rooms), and turn the two structures into the world's greatest frozen strip club. Call it whatever, 'The Holy Boobs' or something, and men will pilgrimage there.
