Glass and scenic lifts are a great way to add a touch of modern style to any property. Used within the building, they allow for a more spacious and airy feeling, whilst used on the exterior they can offer great panoramic views. Around the world, they’ve been used in a variety of different properties to give passengers an unusual and unforgettable experience – such as:
CNN Tower, Toronto
The 1,800 foot tall CNN Tower in Toronto has six glass sided elevators for passengers heading up to the Look Out Level – and for those who have no fear of heights, some of them also have glass panels in the floor, too!
Westin St Francis Hotel, San Francisco
Due to their popularity and security concerns, the lifts in this hotel are only for guests, and only take you to the floor your room’s on – but if you have a reservation for a room on one of the higher floors (or if you climb the stairs to the top and take the lift down), you can enjoy a fantastic panoramic view over Union Square.
Eiffel Tower, Paris
From within the most famous structure Paris, you can enjoy a stunning panoramic view over the city and the River Seine. Just be prepared for some long queues first! The lifts are all glass sided, but are constructed to hold quite a large number of visitors at once, so if you’re keen to see out (and aren’t faint of heart) you’ll want to try to stand at the edge for the best view.
Marriott Marquis Hotel, Atlanta
An interior glass lift which still offers a stunning view; the atrium of this hotel goes all the way up to the top of the building – fifty floors in total – so as you ascend you get a fantastic interior view of this unusual man-made space.
