Best Hotel Bathroom Designs (PHOTOS)

Today’s hotel bathrooms are about more than just the sum of their sinks and showerheads. These days, they serve as ultimate sanctuaries, providing the comforts of home or transporting guests to another realm.

Fresh air and natural light are prized commodities, as are stunning views of skylines or natural landscapes. Fragmentation of areas within the room according to function is popular, such as separating the salle de bain from the toilet.

Here are ten hotel bathrooms that cohesively balance utility and beauty. —Chaney Kwak
