Fairmont Le Château Frontinac

Had a turret room, so three views! One was taken during the day due to light pollution from lights on the hotel.


City view looking northeast-ish


City view looking at the port facing east-ish


River view during the day.

My friend those pics have me looking into taking a holiday there next year. However, I must ask if the place is better to visit as a couple or a single guy on his on. Very nice pics.

No kidding. Those were glorious pictures, BLV.

And yyz_atc_lj, I loved seeing the picture of the balcony at Alam Indah, as I stay at their sister hotel, Alam Jiwah. I might need to branch out next time I am in Ubud.

Conrad Istanbul on Christmas Day

Ok, not technically the Hotel Room, but close enough; and no window reflections to deal with. The view from the Executive Lounge Terrace.

This upcoming summer will be a 4th year in a row we'll be visiting. As a couple We'll most definitely see at least 15 returning guests (pairs, to be exact), and I would most confidently say that this isn't a "single, ready & looking to mingle" type of place. Everyone is "attached", so to speak, but % of good looking people is VERY high.

And here's a photo from Park Hyatt Vendome, where I'm currently staying:

This series is utterly jaw-droppingly beautiful. Just wow!

Seeing this photo I'm increasing my camera-shopping budget RIGHT NOW. My stab at this scene (from street level) with a now all-but-defunct Canon A620 resulted in nothing but blur.


Such inspiring images in this thread!
