Although my room on the 14th floor of the Philadelphia Marriott Downtown was located along the inner perimeter of the U-shaped hotels floors, I sort of had a view. Directly across and to the left were hotel room windows but to the right was view of the neighboring buildings. At least the view was not of the back wall of another building or a service street down below. Obviously during the evening it's best to use the sheer shades or black-out curtains to avoid neighboring guests from seeing into your room.
The roof of the conference rooms could be seen below decorative with a graphic design. Below is a photo as viewed through a window from a 14th floor hallway at the southeast corner of the building. Down below is the Hard Rock Cafe and its huge neon guitar sign located across the street.
