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.

 

And for all things urinal related: http://www.urinal.net/

 

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

The trough shaped urinals at Dodger Stadium could go in the barren "Why LA Sucks" thread.

Oh I just remembered that there were some pretty fancy urinals in one of Polanski's short films:

Peeing beside your dad into a trough at a sports game is a rite of passage for a kid.

Maybe those weirdo adults who go into the stall to piss never got taken to a ballgame by their dads.

A buddy of mine detests urinals, so he is one of those weirdos you mention. He had to give it up for the urinals in Philly I mentioned, though.

Those urinals look like the sort you find at Mcsorely's.

I've heard guys say that before but I hear all such complaints as "i'm scared of the other boys looking at my weewee."

I can't rule out that possibility.

Update: The hotel in Philly is the Bellevue.

Some women really owe their sons an apology for what they've done to them.
