When TripAdvisor users write reviews, they have the option to upload their own photos of the property as long as they are “family friendly” and “original, non-copyrighted images” and users certifiy “I am the owner of these photos, and my posting them on TripAdvisor does not infringe upon the rights of any third party. I accept TripAdvisor’s Terms of Use. ” As you navigate through the traveler photos, you can sometimes get a more realistic appraisal of the hotel than you might if you just were relying on the hotel-submitted images. You can also vote thumbs up or down to the photos and link to the photographers’ TripAdvisor profiles. The traveler photos can be filtered by categories such as room/suite, view from the room, bathroom or those “provided by management.” Get the full story at Tnooz
