The nicer the hotel shower, the less functional it appears to be. I travel and have traveled a lot in my career, and the hotel bathroom is consistently bad, with a shower or tub that feels designed to create a flood.
Until reading this article, I thought I was alone with my thoughts on the many confusing showers I’ve used, but it looks like I’m not. The worst are half-glass or partially enclosed showers that for some reason all suffer from a weirdly placed drain or a basin that is tilted to flood the bathroom floor.
While we’re talking hotel bathrooms, I hate the new trend of giant bottles of soap, shampoo, and conditioner glued or bolted to the wall so they’re cleaned by the shower’s steam. Those things suck.
