For a hotel I think a layby is a must!
I disagree - it's overkill to require a layby on a road that's already five lanes wide. It's bad urban design that creates an awful streetscape in front of an otherwise nice building.

There are several hotels downtown that function fine without having these massive laybys in front.

Going through them: which ones? I only can think of the holiday inn express which has no layby, dedicated all hours loading zone (the Ramada), or driveway.

Only the International and 5 didn't by a quick review, and they are were built as apartments, operated as hotels, and turned back into apartments. Perhaps a sign.
