Cliveden House

This French dining room at Cliveden House was constructed in 1897 to match Madame de Pompadour's 18th-century dining room at the Chateau d'Asnieres. It’s available to rent for private lunches or dinners -- if a meal at the Michelin-starred chef Andre Garrett’s restaurant is a bit too pedestrian. 960 1280

Hotel 41 at Times Square

Hotel 41 at Times Square
Hotel 41 might have a great location in the heart of Times Square, but it doesn’t quite compensate for the lack of views. Some rooms, like this standard, have a brick wall a few inches from the window. You’ll have to upgrade to at least a superior room to get a slightly nicer view.

Harborside Inn of Boston

Harborside Inn of Boston

Harborside Inn of Boston
Don't let the romantic "atrium view" fool you. These interior-facing rooms have depressing views of a narrow space between buildings. For better vistas, book a “city view” room, available only with one, queen-size bed.

Quest Potts Point

Quest Potts Point

Quest Potts Point
In Sydney, everything about the Quest Potts Point hotel is luxurious and stylish. While some rooms have decent street views, others, in every price range and room category, face a brick wall. Request a street view room before checking in. Be sure to check out the lovely rooftop terrace, which offers nice views of the neighborhood and part of Sydney's skyline.

Ayres De Libertad

Ayres De Libertad

Ayres De Libertad
Although all rooms of this sleek and modern hotel have floor-to-ceiling windows, only half of them face pretty Libertad Street in Buenos Aires. The other half has lousy views of a rundown courtyard in urgent need of some fresh coats of paint.

The Luxe Manor

The Luxe Manor

The Luxe Manor
Hong Kong’s Luxe Manor was designed to look like Salvador Dali's imagination. The result is certainly surreal with a quirky, slightly over-the-top decor. Although unique and modern, the rooms have mostly poor views of other buildings. Note that paying more for a suite will not always get you a better view.

Catalonia Rigoletto

Catalonia Rigoletto

Catalonia Rigoletto
The Catalonia Rigoletto, located in Barcelona, Spain, is housed in a building shared with apartments and offices, and is little by little buying more space. Currently it has 65 rooms and suites, very few of which have views. Sure, they do overlook something, but it is not precisely what we'd call a pretty view.

Hotel Le Notre Dame

Hotel Le Notre Dame

Hotel Le Notre Dame
In Paris, this funky, upper-middle-range property, is housed in a 400-year-old historic building just a few steps from Notre Dame and the Seine. Rooms were designed by Christian Lacroix and feature eclectic decor and modern amenities, but while most boast jaw-dropping views of the cathedral and the river, a couple face a gross air shaft that barely lets any light in.

Stay
This boutique is known for its great central location half a block from NYC’s Times Square in NYC. Some of the hotel’s tiny rooms face a wall a few inches away from the window. Make sure to get a room on the top floors and facing the street. Also, if you need extra space, book a large king room instead of a standard room.

Best Western Dam Square

Best Western Dam Square

Best Western Dam Square
Views from rooms here are hit-or-miss. While some have views of a narrow but lovely -- typical Amsterdam street with dormer windows, bicycles parked by the door and flower pots on window sills, and even of the beautiful Niewe Kerk aka New Church -- others face this ugly, chipped wall. The good news is that some rooms have all of the above.

Days Inn Chicago

Days Inn Chicago

Days Inn Chicago
Known as the “Rock and Roll” Days Inn for its popularity among famous bands and musicians, this value hotel offers rooms with either street or interior views. Granted, neither is especially attractive, but at least the street-facing rooms have more light. Request one overlooking West Diversey Parkway if a bright room is important to you.
