We all know that hotels aren't as forthcoming as they should be with photos of their rooms and public spaces on their websites but we still have a chuckle over the other kind of photos hotels put on their website--the totally staged shots of people doing totally random things.

The Hotel Americano caught our attention over the summer with its low-lying Japanese ryokan beds, bento boxes and wool slippers. None of which, however, relate to what the hotel really wants us to be doing during our stay there: puffing away on a cigarette in our skivvies while snuggling up to the hotel's custom-made Zanotti black vinyl bean bag chairs.

It turns out all that talk about proximity to art galleries and views of the High Line were just ways to get us in the door.

Like this couple supposedly on the beach at the newly Kimptonized Surfcomber Hotel in Miami Beach. We say supposedly, because the last time we checked, we don't think there was a jetty on South Beach. That background looks more like California or Cabo. But we could be wrong.

Like this "hotel guest" who is doing a little yoga all alone at the indoor rooftop pool at the Park Hyatt Beijing.

Granted, the Park Hyatt Beijing is a stunning property with killer views of the city from nearly every futuristic nook and cranny in the place and while the pool (one of two lap pools in the hotel) may not be awash in heavenly light at all times, it is pretty spectacular looking.

But still, as a hotel guest, would you just bust out into tree pose by your lonesome here? Hey, maybe you would. Rates at the hotel start at $350 a night for a Park Room King if you want to give it a try.

Or if you've already done this, let us know in comments below! Extra bonus points if you send us a pic to show it's fer realz.
