Renaissance Hotels Invites London’s Heathrow Terminal 5 Travellers to Discover a Room With A View Before they Board the Plane

LONDON – This September, visitors to London’s Heathrow Airport Terminal 5 will be instantly transported around the world before they event depart for their journey thanks to a large scale photography exhibition entitled, Room With A View, sponsored by Renaissance Hotels (www.renhotels.com).

The unique exhibition, created in partnership with Renaissance Hotels and acclaimed photographer Henry Reichhold, offers travellers a selection of breath-taking photographs taken from the intimate viewpoint of a hotel guest room in well-known global destinations including New York and Sao Paulo.

Reichhold shot panoramic scenes from select hotels including the Renaissance Sao Paulo Hotel in Brazil, the Renaissance Istanbul Bosphorus Hotel in Turkey and Renaissance New York Times Square Hotel in the United States.  Captured in ultra-high resolution, the imagery depicts unparalleled views in phenomenal clarity.  To capture the full depth and character of the views, the high-resolution pictures were created by blending a number of images together in a unique way.

The exclusive exhibition will run from early September to late November and celebrates the breadth of extraordinary guest room views offered by Renaissance Hotels around the world.  From the rolling hills of Tuscany, to the sprawling cityscape of Shanghai, the large scale images showcase iconic views in sensational detail.  Each hotel was hand selected to highlight locations within the Renaissance Hotels portfolio, a lifestyle hotel brand known for encouraging travellers to Live Life to DiscoverSM.

Toni Stoeckl, vice president for Renaissance Hotels said: “We are delighted to have partnered with Henry to celebrate these extraordinary moments of arrival and discovery in key destinations.  It’s true that a magnificent view can truly transform a travel experience.”

Artist Henry Reichhold says: “The inspiration behind this exhibition came from E.M. Forster’s novel ‘A Room with a View’ and the importance of a grand view.  The project captures that thrill of discovering your own perfectly framed backdrop that creates a memory which stays with you long after you leave.”

Terminal 5 at London’s Heathrow Airport is renowned for hosting award-winning artist-led initiatives to create an exciting and vibrant environment for global travellers.
