Oyster_Oahu beach_fakeout.jpgOysterPhoto_Oahu beach_fakeout.jpgOyster.com, a new hotel review site, claims to offer consumers honest reports and real-life photos of more than 1,000 hotels in the United States, Dominican Republic, Bahamas, and Caribbean. Oyster.com's reporters stay at each hotel before coming up with their "pearl system'' ratings. Oyster.com covers everything from one-pearl hotels, which are typically "no-frills crash pads that don't offer much more than a bed for the night'' to five-pearl luxury accommodations, which have top-notch amenities and exceptional service. www.oyster.com
