The bathrooms on the Standard hotels have great floor to ceiling views. Try the ones associated with the Boom Boom room on the top floor.

My guess is that whoever bought it would rip out all those ridiculous tiny bedrooms and bathrooms. 7 1/2 bathrooms seems a little overkill.
How are the urinals? For that matter, where are the best urinals in NYC? I fancy the old school shoulder-height porcelain jobs that can double as a boat if need arises. Old Town Bar or Pastis.
Silly me. I assumed each of those bedrooms was bigger than my living room. As for urinals, the best I've ever encountered were in an old hotel in Philadelphia. They had, for lack of a better term, a spout sort of like a gravy boat which roughly matched the arc of the, um, stream, and the water was way down at the bottom. Zero splashback. They projected nearly three feet from the wall.
Now we're talking. Those are some mighty nice urinals. The Royalton had some interesting urinals when they first opened - stainless steel, electronic beams, walls of water.

Are there any troughs left? You would typically see these in a sports stadium men's room or old athletic club.
