A Hotel with an Indoor View

In Hotlanta next few days for work, my company is hosting a conference to help train/educate customers in our offerings.

The event is held in the Marriott Marquis Hotel in downtown Atlanta and I must say, it's quite the architectural statement, this hotel.

Closest analogy that came to mind when I first saw the open interior, was that I was gazing along the inside of a gigantic whale, it's spine depicted by the elevator shafts and the ribs of the whale delineated by the balconies at each level.

Here, you can decide:
 Looking up from the lobby


Looking down from the 30th floor

Cool stuff eh?  The event starts tomorrow, my duties are minimal, and Thursday we'll be moving the party to the Coca Cola Museum nearby, should be a good time.

It almost looks like an optical illusion. Pretty cool.

I don't have much call to go into hotels in ATL. But that one has some spectacular architecture. I so wish we were in town, I would be taking you out for dinner! Have fun. Hope it isn't oo humid. Good luck with the activities. Hope to catch you next time.
