The Lit opened about 10 months ago, but I’ve only just gotten around to paying them a visit. I have been intrigued by the sight of the hotel’s curiously undulating sunscreen, which you can clearly see from the Skytrain. The hotel is just a few steps up a quiet alley from the National Stadium Skytrain station, right across the street from MBK Center.
The hotel bills itself as a radical re-imagining of what a city hotel should be, and on the face of it they have definitely done something interesting. The curiously perforated sunscreen shields a ultra-modern concrete and glass structure. The screen probably does a good job keeping the rooms from being too hot (an important consideration at this time of year) and there’s nothing in the way of a view from the low-rise structure anyway.
