HOTEL: Opportunity for a landmark wasted

I have always been totally in favour of a national budget chain hotel being built on the '˜Dome' site or surrounds, and I specifically suggested this to North Tyneside Council staff at one of the original open access sessions at St Paul's Church Hall what seems like a century ago, but having seen the design of the building now approved by the council's planning committee, it is a waste of an opportunity to have some sort of landmark building that complements the surrounding area.
