L.A. Photo Fakeout: When flora goes missing
We've already brought you countless examples of sly cropping, elaborate camerawork, and conspicuously missing hotel decor. For today's Photo Fakeout: the case of the mysteriously disappearing plants at The London West Hollywood. Often, hotel websites show off guest rooms that include everything from purple orchids and flourishing ficus plants to bouquets and arrangements you might expect to see on Valentine's Day, but not inside your hotel room. As we've discovered, however, hotels don't always deliver on the flora. The garland seen here was conspicuously absent during our stay in Hollywood.
Update: Since we published this Photo Fakeout, the London West Hollywood has removed the above marketing image.« Back to Oyster Photo Fakeouts
