http://www.mybrightonandhove.org.uk/page_id__6018.aspx Opening of the Hotel Metropole The Hotel Metropole was built in 1890. Faced with red terracotta, the hotel was markedly different to the surrounding seafront whitewashed properties. The building was designed by Alfred Waterhouse, the architect of University College in London and the Natural History Museum. The cost of construction was £57,000. In all, a customs house, 12 lodging houses, a parade ground and a park were cleared to make way for the hotel. Modern times The hotel was part of the Gordon hotel chain from its construction up until 1959, when it was was acquired by AVP industries. The hotel then underwent a major revamp, which included the addition of bathrooms to all its rooms. People who remembered the original artwork were horrified to find that some of it had vanished or had been covered up. The change to the roofline meant that the central spire and small turrets were removed and two new floors added. The winter gardens vanished into the new Regency ballroom, and a large conference suite topped by a tower block was included in the scheme. This meant the demolition of another row of houses and the graceful St Margaret's church. Strangely, some of the old building walls were used in the construction and support of the new buildings. Currently the UK's largest residential conference centre, it was built in 1890 and has 340 bedrooms. Since 2000, it has been operated by Hilton Hotels & Resorts (previously it operated under the Stakis brand), and previously owned by The Royal Bank of Scotland, its freehold is now owned by the Topland Group.

Currently a hotel known as Hilton Brighton Metropole, but there is no spire to be seen. The block of flats built behind could pass as one I guess...
