The bathtubs in the East Tower at The Cosmopolitan Resort in Las Vegas have some drop dead gorgeous views. Just take a look! But the thing is, we almost dropped dead this morning trying to get into the tub.

Despite having an oddly square and rather deep shape, the tub has little "seats" on the bottom which make it easier to sit in. But the problem is getting into the tub. There's a big distance between the step up into the tub and the tub itself. We tried to climb up it but after slipping and denting our shin bone, we realized the best way is to probably sit on the tub ledge, swing your legs over and drop down. The same should be done on the way out, especially since you'll be extra slippery.

Geez, bathtubs should not be this complicated, right? Or maybe we're just feeling the effects of all those Cosmos from last night. Either way, safety first when entering and exiting these tubs.

It’s the start of the magical cherry blossom season in Washington DC and it's also HC’s unofficial “Bathroom Tuesday”. So what better way to celebrate both than highlight a hotel with a stunning bathroom that will give you views of the city’s natural pride and joy?

The baths at the swank Mandarin Oriental, Washington D.C. are filled with glossy marble and have both separate shower and deep soaking tubs. Some rooms and suites (those are the ones you’ll want for this time of the year) have views of the Washington Monument. And if peeping the cherry blossom trees while you’re having a soak in your tub isn't enough, you can always turn on the in-bath television.

Bathtub, Shower, Or Both At The Same Time? What's Your Ideal Hotel Bathroom Setup?

August 14, 2012 at 9:34 AM | by | ()

Last week, we asked you about hotel check-in rituals, and received quite an assortment of responses. Today, we're focusing on hotel bathing rituals: what are yours?

Having visited a number of hotels, we've seen our fair share of hotel bathrooms. And we've bathed in them plenty, too. But one thing that always confronts us upon checking into a new hotel is whether we indulge in a full-on bath, or just stick to the regular ol' shower.

Sharing a cramped NYC apartment as we do (save that story for another day), baths aren't a luxury we normally enjoy. But then again, we prefer the quick, in-and-out efficiency of showers anyway, and don't usually feel like straying too far from our routine.

But what about you? Is a hotel room automatically synonymous with hour-long, classical music-serenaded, rose-petaled sessions in the tub? Or does it depend on the hotel?
