Watch the Creation of North America's Tallest Hotel

Marriott just opened its latest hotel in Manhattan…and broke the height record while they were at it.

The newly opened Marriott in midtown Manhattan recently claimed the title of tallest hotel in North America, clocking in at 68 stories high. The dual-branded hotel will house both a Courtyard and a Residence Inn. The 750-foot building beats out the previous titleholder, the Detroit Marriott at the Renaissance Center, which totaled 727 feet, according to the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat. Check out this cool time lapse of the hotel's construction.
