The latest release in the LEGO Modular Buildings Collection, 10297 Boutique Hotel is one of the most sophisticated sets that the theme has to offer. However, it’s also one of the most expensive – now carrying an RRP of £199.99. Luckily, by entering the code LEGOOFFER at checkout on the John Lewis website you can get this set for £169.99 instead – a 15% saving on the full price.
10297 Boutique Hotel depicts a large hotel with an adjoining art gallery, reflecting similar design choices in other Modular Building sets. The hotel itself features a highly angular design, ensuring it’ll stand out in any modular street.
Three floors are included in the hotel: the ground floor features the lobby, complete with front desk, luggage trolley, a sofa and several room keys. The first floor features a pair of budget guest rooms; these include amenities such as beds, wardrobes and even a typewriter. The top floor of the hotel is rather more luxurious, featuring an ensuite, a double bed and even a television.
Outside the hotel is a small bar, complete with two small tables and a lavishly detailed palm tree. The adjoining gallery is small, but filled with artwork – including a sculpture of the LEGO Creator Expert logo. This branding was used for older releases in the Modular Buildings line, making it a great Easter egg for LEGO fans. There’s also a small coffee cart to wake guests up in the morning.
With seven minifigures (including hotel staff, guests and a coffee seller) some offbeat colour choices and numerous references to other Modular Building sets, this is a great addition to your LEGO Modular Building collection. Buying from John Lewis will net you free delivery in addition to the set discount, and ensures a quality customer service experience from start to finish.
