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 like art. We do. But some art is not for everyone — and, most have to agree: when you're staying at the Four Seasons, you would not look out your window expecting to see something like this, would you?

This is a shot of a part of the exterior of the Four Seasons Washington, D.C., a hotel that is absolutely unique (and very, very cool) in that it has part of the property's owner's private art collection on display throughout the interior of the hotel — and apparently the exterior, too. This particular piece certainly isn't everyone's taste, and this shot comes to us via tombarnes20008's submission to the HotelChatter Flickr pool. He adds:

I've always thought that this sculpture looked like either baby-sick or spilled ice cream.

Yeah, some of us would agree; it's definitely a cool piece, just maybe notsomuch outside our Four Seasons window...especially at $595 per night.

I see ...

not spilled ice cream (that would be great), but the woman (?) in the bottom left corner who's scarily pointing to some room's window. Def don't want to stay in that room, it looks cursed.
