The Four Seasons Seattle Has Apparently Been Transplanted to Baltimore
Yesterday, we commented on the guestrooms at the upcoming Four Seasons Baltimore by saying they looked "decidedly Four Seasons" meaning they look pretty darn similar to other Four Seasons hotels. But we were still shocked when a tipster pointed out that the room photo is ripped off from the Four Seasons Seattle's website!
So you can see for yourselves, we put the room shots together above. The room photo on the bottom is the Four Season Seattle's partial bay view room while the one on the top is the Four Seasons Baltimore's generic room shot. Thanks to the trickery of photoshop, the view has been swapped out to show Baltimore's city streets and not Seattle's Elliott Bay.
We understand that hotels want to have some imagery up on their site before the hotel opens and we also understand that this being a chain of hotels, there is probably not going to be too much variation in the room design. But using the exact same photo and swapping out the view? Not cool.
We've emailed a rep for Four Seasons asking them to explain the photo mixup and they told us:
As photography is not yet available for Four Seasons Baltimore the image
is temporary. A photo shoot is scheduled for early October and the photo
of the Baltimore guest room will be posted then.
Mystery solved. Just don't expect too much variation come October!
