Yup. Those kind of thrones.
“These washrooms are testaments to their proprietors’ sense of taste, flair and attention to detail, and feature some of the world’s finest materials and customer comforts as well as a few surprises,” the site says.
Maybe it’s because I’m a woman, but I think this is a great idea. I’ve always appreciated a good commode. I can (sadly) think of one or two that recently stuck in my memory:
- The ladies’ rooms at the Red Rock Canyon Grill in Silver Spring have those stalls where the full-length doors seal you into privacy. Impressively thick disposable hand towels would put Bounty’s “even thicker, quicker picker upper” to shame;
- The ladies’ room at Legal Seafoods in Washington. They also have the full-length doors plus sinks/towels in each stall so there’s no waiting in line behind a woman who’s checking her makeup for the umpteenth time.
I know I can’t be the only one who notices these things — after all, there’s an entire Web site dedicated to the topic — so chime in and tell me what you’d nominate as your favorite restroom in the region.
As for me, I’ll be stacking the voting for the Tremont.
