That is a bit of an anthropomorphism (the balcony does not invite anything; the balcony is inanimate). You can say that as a somewhat flowery phrase but I don't see it as a valid use. The scenery could invite you to explore, and the balcony could invite you to get outside and enjoy the air, but the balcony, even if it gives you a view of the great scenery, isn't really inviting you to the scenery of itself. The view is inviting. the balcony, well, I don't know of many balconies that seem inviting to me, even when they offer fantastic views.

Better would be: The Balcony of this hotel offers great scenery.

It's correct, but unnatural.
