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.

The thing is, Airport Hotels could have really good views for its hotel guests, especially if they are Plane-Spotting enthusiasts but more often than not, airport hotels have yielded some of the ugliest anti-views yet.

This one from the Marriott BWI Airport has a triple whammy against it. Not only does it not have views of planes taxing on the runway, it has a view of a rooftop AND a view of the neighboring Hilton. As HotelChatter Flickr pool member Tom Barnes says:

The view of the new Hilton from Room 411 is surely an anti-view if there ever was one.

Room rates are also not that cheap here, starting at $199 a night for an Advance purchase rate that is non-refundable. Also, the hotel's Moniker's restaurant is undergoing renovations and will not be open until later in March.
