Your Best Photos Might Be Right Outside Your Hotel Room Window

When I travel for business, I always bring along a camera. It might only be a point and shoot, but I always bring a camera. I always make a habit of looking out of the hotel room window for photo opportunities and I have taken some terrific photos from the hotel window.
I’ve included several photos in this post that I’ve taken from hotel room windows along with a description of where they were taken.
It also doesn’t hurt to ask for a room with a nice view when you are checking in at the front desk. Some places may want to charge you for a view of the ocean or like the Bellagio that will charge you for a view of the fountains.

Hotel Room Photography Tips
- When traveling overseas, jet lagged, and waking up early, it is a good time to take sunrise photos from the hotel window.
- I bring along a Benro travel tripod and a remote shutter release for extra stability.
- You will need to watch the glare and your reflection in the window. Try turning off the lights in the room and closing the curtain behind the camera.
