The bear's visit was cut short after one of the employees drove him out of the hotel.
It seems bears enjoy a good view just like any other visitor to the White Mountains in New Hampshire.
An employee at the Omni Mount Washington Resort took the picture of a bear enjoying the view on June 29 that shows a black bear holding onto a rail on the veranda, looking at the color-shifting sky.
The photo was taken at around 5 am and the employee, Sam Geesaman, said he had only wanted to get a photo of the sunrise.
Instead, he caught the bear as it climbed stairs in search of a trash can.
The bear was on his way out of the hotel after Gessaman loudly clapped and stomped.
New Hampshire routinely has reports of bears finding their way into homes, campgrounds and even apartment complexes.
Last year, food shortages were blamed for a sharp increase in bear-human conflicts and the highest numbers of bear killings since 2014.
