Room With an Anti-View: Roof Deck Construction at Thompson Beverly Hills
You know the scene. You open the door to your brand new hotel room, run over to the window, open the blinds and bam, you are hit with the anti-view. Maybe you are looking down a dirty alley, witnessing a drug deal, staring at an air shaft in the face, or seeing a brick wall. Whatever you are viewing it is not extremely pleasurable. Help out your fellow hotel mavens by uploading your anti-views to the HotelChatter/Flickr photo pool, or by sending the photo along to us. Remember to tell us the name of the hotel and the room number with the not-so-easy-on-the-eyes view.
We've had a lot of talk about the Thompson Beverly Hills Hotel which is finally more-or-less open for business. We say more-or-less thanks to the first guest review we read on TripAdvisor earlier this week which said the hotel wasn't that honest about the status of construction. (The guest's originally booked room wasn't ready and a second choice was missing a TV.)
While this isn't technically an anti-view from a guestroom, it is the state of the construction on the rooftop deck which should be transformed into a pool/lounge bar areay by February. As always with Thompson, will wait and see.
