This roof is tailor made for blimp or helicopter shots during sports coverage. I guess some people might see it from planes approaching ORD or MDW, but those are usually pretty high up when passing over downtown.
Agree about the skylights being an opportunity lost but still a beautiful finish from the ground up!
Would it look too tacky to light up the roof at nite with some flood lights from on top of the Marriott?
