As New York’s only revolving rooftop restaurant and lounge, The View is understandably a showpiece of New York Marriott Marquis. But just like great museums where visitors appreciate artworks more when they know a little bit about them, the view from The View becomes profoundly more impactful when guests can identify the landmarks on the horizon. To that end, this NYC hotel is launching a new infographic whose details about the surrounding buildings do more than just inform. They also inspire guests to add their own bird’s-eye view to the social-media conversation at #ViewFromTheView.
Guests sitting down to dinner at The View find themselves in an entirely new stratosphere. Not only is the restaurant yet another stunning feature of one of the most impressive hotels in Times Square, but it feels as enlightening as it does awe-inspiring, thanks to the new infographic.
As a result, visitors might peruse the options for the three-course, prix-fixe menu while they search out landmarks like the Empire State Building, the Rockefeller Center and the Chrysler Building. As they deliberate between foie-gras parfait and baby octopus, they might notice how Carnegie Tower was built with the same palette of materials as those used in the neighboring Carnegie Hall. And as they tuck into a roasted saddle of lamb or the pan-roasted salmon, they can imagine joining the glittering ranks of celebrities who’ve docked at the Passenger Ship Terminal, or debate which of the New York Times’ seven different headquarters over the years has been its finest. Dessert, whether it’s artisan cheeses or chocolate-and-raspberry tart, is the perfect time to gaze upon the famous New Year’s Eve ball, which rests atop One Times Square when it’s not descending down to cheering crowds.
Guests are also encouraged to snap a few photos of their favorite views and post them to social channels with the hashtag, #ViewFromTheView. Whether people prefer to gaze upon the World Wide Plaza (whose rooftop pyramid is invisible from the street), Columbia University’s symbolic carvings or the country’s first green skyscraper, 4 Times Square, they can all likely agree on one thing: The View is just one more way the New York Marriott Marquis rises above other hotels in NYC, both literally and metaphorically.
