The six pictures in this entry were taken from the 62nd floor of the Westin Peachtree Plaza in downtown Atlanta. The hotel was completed in 1976, and at the time of its original completion was the tallest hotel in the world standing at 723 feet with 73 total floors.(1) The hotel stands on the lot that originally was the spot for the thirteen story Henry Grady Hotel that lasted from 1923-1974.(2) The hotel provided a place for out of town tourists to stay while visiting Atlanta or simply passing through the city. Tourism is a key aspect of any downtown area and the importance of overnight accommodations play a role in the number of people visiting the city and what kind of people visit.
The first four pictures provide different views from out of each side of the window in the hotel room. The next photo is one that provides a straight down view and depicts other buildings around the Westin that are not nearly as tall. The last photo has a view of an exit off the 75/85 highway.
