Washington, D.C. Photo Fakeout: A pretty view that doesn't exist

What a view! Though the L'Enfant Plaza's website shows off a room with a shockingly close view of the Washington Monument (on the backdrop of beautiful blue skies, no less), our room at the hotel looked out onto a shockingly close wall, instead. Sure, some rooms have views of the monument -- but they definitely don't look like the website's photo, and in actuality the iconic structure is about a half-mile away.

Update: Since we published this Fakeout, the hotel closed renovations and removed the misleading image.
