Las Vegas Photo Fakeout: Color Me Sad

See recent posts by Oyster Staff

On the left is the image used by the California Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas to promote their Deluxe King rooms. On the right is a photo of the same type of room, um, in real life.

Although we found the off-the-strip property to be clean, comfortable and quiet (appealing qualities for plenty of Sin City visitors; we know), we can’t help but feel a little bit let down by the lack of “tropical island paradise”-esque decor promised to us (seriously) by the website.

Next to the marketing photo, the real thing just looks a bit colorless – sort of like the pale New Yorkers kickin’ it shirtless with the nicely-bronzed masses in the Hard Rock’s pool. Sad.
