Scale Hotel: Kit Bashed Lionel Model?

Lionel Hotel Scale Model

Colorful Christmas Lights decorate this hotel off the East River.

The hotel looks suspiciously like the Lionelville four story hotel. However the Lionelville structure is only a four story building, while this hotel is five stories. The Lionel building also has a fire escape and lots of other details missing from this structure.

The image on the Lionel website shows the four story building has arches over all the windows. The building at the the Grand Central Holiday Train layout has arches on the top floor, but standard rectangular windows on the lower floors.

So is this a custom structure? Or did someone modify the Lionel hotel? Or did Lionel also offer a five story unit?
