Seating:Upper level lounge

The View is a revolving restaurant and lounge (with a buffet) located on the 48th floor of the Marriott near Times Square, NYC. To get to The View, take the escalators to the third floor of the Marriott, then go to the elevators. Elevators F and G will take you to the 48th floor - it's quite neat to look outside as the glass elevators take you up through the tall atrium of the hotel.

The View consists of two rotating floors. The top floor (48th floor) is a lounge area that serves drinks, and has a small food buffet, and another small dessert buffet. The restaurant is located down the stairs on the 47th floor. The restaurant revolves once approximately every 70 minutes.

We went to the lounge area of The View during our visit. If you stay past 9:00pm, there is a $7/person cover charge (regardless of when you arrive).

This place is overpriced, but a neat place to go when you're visiting NYC. The view is quite nice and you get to enjoy it in all directions. If you come as a couple, you may be seated next to the window. The view from one of the window seats is the best, although all tables are pretty close to the windows, so anywhere you sit is pretty good.


"Smart Casual" - most people wear nice jeans and a button shirt.


Quite expensive - you're paying for the view. Cocktails were $16 each. If you were there past 9:00pm, each person in your group has to pay an additional $7 cover charge. There is also a 1-drink minimum per person.

There was a small food buffet and a small dessert buffet (with a chocolate fountain). The dessert buffet could be purchased separately for only $18. Considering the cost of a single cocktail was $16, in the future, it would be better value having the dessert buffet instead for an additional $2.


The bar is table-service only.

Items Ordered

Pomegranate Margarita

Jose Cuervo Especial Gold, Pama Pomegranate, Lime Juice, Simple Syrup

Cocktails could be ordered frozen (blended ice), on the rocks, or plain. This one was ordered with ice. It was very sweet - a little too sweet, really. At $16, it tasted overpriced.
