Hotel guest shares painted 'view' from San Francisco room

A first-time visitor to San Francisco was left a little disappointed after checking in to his hotel room expecting an impressive view of the picturesque city from his window, only to be greeted with a less-than-spectacular fake view.

Jay Gilliland filmed footage of his reaction after he realized that his window looked out on a mural of the city painted on the back of a hotel sign.

However, the Indiana man saw the funny side of the disappointing panorama.

Speaking to Storyful, he said, “When I saw the view, it was too funny not to share. So I posted it on my Instagram story for my friends to get a laugh.”
