Twitpic of the Week: The Sun Also Rises In San Francisco
In the ever-expanding universe of Twitter, there is one particular trend @HotelChatter happens to quite enjoy: candid hotel photos. These Twitpics range from stunning views to anti-views to celebrity tomfoolery and everything in between. And we can't get enough of 'em! Every Monday, we will feature one "Twitpic of the Week" to commemorate our favorite hotel-themed snapshot. Got a favorite of your own? Want to show off your sweet suite? Send it in!
We caught Conan O'Brien with his goofy hotel cookie last week, so we thought we'd change the mood today with something a little more...picturesque. @dens, also known as Dennis Crowley, co-founder of Foursquare, tweeted this shot from his room at San Francisco's Parc 55 Wyndham last Wednesday morning, capturing some brilliantly illuminated boats out in the bay.
As it turns out, @dens was recently profiled by the NY Times, which outlined a regular Sunday morning at home with the social media whiz and his girlfriend, Chelsea. Surprisingly, Foursquare (and hotel-hopping, for that matter) didn't seem to play such a big role in the tech mogul's weekend routine.
From what we could tell, the day mostly consists of walking around the East Village and Lower East Side with frequent stops at cafes and art galleries.
But at least we know Foursquare's progenitor likes to keep costs down when traveling around the country. Compared to other Union Square spots, Parc 55 rates start at a very reasonable $135 a night.
