Trying to think of acceptable placements... Left of Diner, for sure. Right of PC? Any others?
Second, you can make hotels out of anything: I've been to gorgeous hotels that only had a handful of rooms.
Third, the goal of the modular line is not to optimize space, it's to give nice and original architecture models that you could see in any city. We've barely had anything angled so far, despite angled buildings being common in certain cities. The finished model might be really cool to look at, even if the rest has been mostly square. It's still overall square and will be a neat corner piece, if it's how it turns out.
Although, I do wonder when digital payment methods will hit LEGO City.

Do the same, and tell me that it'll fit in well with normal modulars. 11 bricks is higher than the entire first floor of the Pet Shop modular.
Also, technically the 1x1 headlight bricks on the side of the roof (pointing out towards other modulars) would be classed as an illegal technique if another building is placed next to them, given that the side stud on that element sticks out very slightly more than the brick width.
Looks like a very Mediterranean hotel!
Super impressed with this one
I’ve already got plans to convert that tiny room into a bath for the larger room next to it.
Yeah, I think this is what killed it. Downtown Diner had one, and while it fit really well, and I thought it was great, all the posts I saw were complaining about them using parts on the car instead of the building. And then they had it in Corner Garage, and there was a lot of complaints about the floors feeling really empty... Then, at the start of this year they had the Vintage Car GWP that went really well with the Modular Building themes, and it was pretty well received. So I wouldn't be surprised if they decided to just not do cars with the sets, but have separate sets like GWPs (and maybe some city sets later?) to fill the gap instead.
Modular add on vehicle sets would be great! GWPs sets are well done but can be hard to come by. Make a $12-$25 set that includes a classic automobile or 2 and the adults LEGO is “welcoming” will snap these up too!
