Something New: “Oyster Hotel Reviews” Shows What Your Next Hotel Will Look Like

Oyster Hotel Reviews recently sent some of its “reporters” to the 415, and man oh man, they took pictures of everything inside of 47 of our nicer joints. So if you’re obsessed with what your potential hotel room will look like, then you’re going to want to see this.

See all the pics of individual hotel rooms? Oh man, that’s a lot of photos – and they’re all the same basic style, very straightforward with lots of fish-eye lens shots. (Images would look very different if you unleashed the kids from CaliberSF and let them roam San Francisco’s finest hotel rooms, of course.) 

But if you want to see how things look, like if you want to see multiple angles of the big flat screen TV in the Astor Suite at the Reeg, well have at it.

Presenting “Bathroom at The Astor Suite of The St. Regis San Francisco, 2009.” Just a tiny TV in the bathroom, of course:

Another thing: Oyster has listed our pros and cons for tout le monde to see. Here’s a selection:


Sea lions at Pier 39
Liberalism and political activism
Epicenter of gay rights movements
Thriving gay scene, especially in Castro District


Microclimates within the city means it can be sunny in one neighborhood and gray in the next
Taxis can be frustratingly few and far between.
Vagrancy and panhandling are common. 
Locals consider some areas, like Fisherman’s Wharf and the Castro, intolerable tourist traps.
Street parking can be a blood sport; hotel parking is expensive.
(Very) slight chance of earthquakes

Boy, they’ve got us pegged, huh?

Anyway, they’ve also done New York, Los Angeles, Hawaii, Las Vegas, Miami, the Caribbean – the list goes on. Check it out, after the jump.
