The Lion Heart Hotel is a boutique hotel with just three rooms, a single, a double and the penthouse suite. This MOC features two of my favourite LEGO parts – the lion head and the “brick” brick.
The hotel is named after the knight whose statue is found in the lobby. He was said to have the heart of a lion.
The single room and double room, both ensuited, are located on the first floor:
The top floor is the penthouse suite, with dining and lounge rooms:

I like how this building turned out overall, but the roof line isn’t quite right. I’d like to rebuild this one in the future with a different roofline (but keeping the lion head, of course). There’s just one problem – it was accidentally dropped before I had a chance to make an electronic copy. It shattered in so many pieces that I didn’t have the heart to put it back together at the time.
Edit 26 November 2013: I finally put this building together again and made an electronic copy. I didn’t end up changing the roof line because I thought it looked OK actually. I did change the design of the elevator. It works a lot better than the original model, although it failed to pass the “6 y.o. pulling it up and down 500 times” test.
