Why you should never trust the photos hotels post online

Hotels aren't always completely honest when it comes to the photos they post on their websites.

Professional reviewers from hotel review website Oyster visited vacation properties from Barbados to Boston, and the photos they took didn't quite match up with the online fantasy.

This latest collection of "photo fakeouts" serves as a cautionary tale for anyone planning a vacation and relying solely on hotel websites. Some of these photo "upgrades" are so egregious, you'll think you are looking at pictures of two completely different properties.
