  1. What a great idea for a piece. It creates a nice opportunity to showcase some appealing images.

  2. Now that you’ve done this for Hilton, I can see lots of other hotel brands wanting you to do the same with their rooftop bars.

  3. Another great thing about rooftop bars is that they are such a great place for watching the world go by below.

    Although you are usually at the hub of the city you feel as if you are nicely detached from all the noise and bustle.

  4. And these are just the Hilton rooftops! Imagine the features you could write on hotel rooftops across the world.

    I remember a wonderful rooftop in Fez looking out across the ochre roofs of the Medina amongst fig and orange trees as sunset streaked the distant mountains.

    There must be others too?

    1. That’s a nice idea. Could you invite hotels to send in a picture of their terrace with a paragraph or two? There would be some spectacular posts.

      I started thinking that Africa and Latin America would be out front then I realised that every other continent is going to be up there too.
