Here’s a curious trend appearing in hotels: bathrooms with internal windows
Seen here on Reddit.
Some of the people submitting comments on Reddit think that it’s to discourage non-couples or unrelated people from staying in the same hotel room instead of paying for separate rooms. I’m not convinced that the couples really want this kind of intimacy either. If hotels really think that they do, perhaps the bathrooms should include a Love Toilet too?
Most of the Reddit comments suggest that the window helps you to keep an eye on your hooker… interesting bunch of folks out there:biggrin:
Apparently the open bathroom concept is nothing new. The New York Times published this article in 2009:
Bathrooms That Are Part of the View
Automatic blinds on the outside of the glass could be raised or lowered from a button in the bedroom, but not from inside the stall.
From the chic boutiques of London and Los Angeles to hot new hotels in more exotic locales like India and China, exposed bathrooms are a growing trend — whether in the form of transparent glass walls and shower stalls or bathtubs set in the middle of the bedroom like free-standing sculptures.
With hotel room sizes shrinking, glass walls are also a tempting trompe l’oeil: they make a room feel bigger by leaving sightlines unobstructed and maximize natural light from the bedroom windows
Has anyone seen an open bathroom plan in a hostel?
