Just a foot or so above the floor and only inches deep and wide, the nook was ever so thoughtfully designed with a woman’s shaving needs in mind. Imagine the possibilities! No more crouching, slipping and slopping around the shower to get your bare legs ready for that little black dress. Simply insert foot in secure nook and commence struggle-free leg shaving.
Whistling Morrissey’s “Such A Little Makes Such a Big Difference,” we felt a whoop whoop and high-five coming for the Waldorf Astoria and whoever had the idea to build the nook. What a clever nod to the little black dress, not to mention solid respect for women all over the world who grapple with leg shaving in hotel bathrooms. (Yeah, we might be reading into things a bit, but where bathroom needs are concerned, we pay close attention.)
P.S. Dudes, need not feel left out. Just head to the exquisite yet un-frilly spa for a traditional shave or a hot lava shell massage. Then, kick back in the plush man-cave-like lounge where giant leather lounge chairs and ottomans, dark-hued walls, and a flatscreen TV just above the fireplace beg two legs up and some manly chill time.
Room rates at the Waldorf Astoria Chicago currently start at $395. Go on and get your nook on.
