Professional and novice astronomers — as well as the curious masses — will turn their eyes to the sky on August 21, 2017, to witness the awe-inspiring phenomenon coined the “Great American Eclipse.”
As the sun is masked by the moon, skies will darken from South Carolina to Oregon as the eclipse sweeps across the United States from coast to coast. At that moment, temperatures will drop, critters will fall silent and sparks of light will streak across the sky. This astral event? It’s one for the ages.
Marriott Rewards and SPG hotels in-and-around the Solar Eclipse’s “line of totality” are featuring pop-up events with local artists in key destinations. Dozens of Marriott International hotels across the country are curating truly memorable guest experiences by hosting prime viewing areas on hotel rooftops, courtyards, and unique outside spaces. 40 Properties, spanning 19 different Brands ranging from the St Regis, to Westin, to Springhill Suites will be giving away complimentary solar eclipse glasses to guests.
Marriott International has 160 total hotels within the Eclipse’s line of totality in cities like Jackson Hole, Wyoming, Nashville, Tennessee and Charleston, South Carolina where the moon will completely cover the sun in this once in a lifetime experience for travelers.
