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 hesitated when we came across this shot. First reaction: ew. Second reaction: Wait, isn't that...?

Yes. It is. It's the Hotel Diva in San Francisco. Sigh.

It is rare that an anti-view strikes thrice 'round these parts — usually there are only a couple of rooms with not-so-nice views on one property — but this is the third anti-view we've seen from the Hotel Diva. We had one alleyway shot and one straight-on window/wall. What's the deal?

The funny this is, we took a quickie glance at TripAdvisor (and looked back on our own Diva experience) and it seems that most people can agree that this is an outstanding hotel for the price; a lot of customers rave about the value, comfort, decor and service... it's just too bad about the views.
