With so many hotel options around the world, architects, designers, and hoteliers face an ever-increasing need to make their properties stand out. Experimenting with modern design, competing in the tallest and biggest race, and pushing limits for construction records can give a hotel extra notoriety and make a hotel a destination in itself for travelers.

But what about when it goes too far, and they end up sticking out like a sore thumb? Ultimately, beauty is in the eye of the beholder – but it's possible for a design to either ever-so-slightly or entirely miss the mark. We give you a sampling of some of the ugliest hotels in the world.

Know of one that's even more hideous? Leave your suggestions in the comments.
