More on the lawsuit of the ugly kitchen: I must tell you that I am intrigued. Since I cannot bring you photos (yet) of the Ikea Kitchen that has become the center of a lawsuit at the Gramercy Park Hotel, whereby an Icelandic couple is being sued for putting IKEA kitchen cabinets in their swank co-op located at 50 Gramercy Park North I decided to take you on a photo tour of hotel bathrooms that were voted best hotel bathrooms by Oyster Hotel Reviews. Tacky or Tasteful: You decide.
Did somebody say luxury? I don’t care how luxurious the toiletries are with their ginger infused soy milk shampoo and shea rice-milk conditioner. Note to traveler, bring flip flops to use in shower. I would not want to put my bare feet on this shower floor.
Better. An older suite, classic lines. Lighting is good. But wait…is that a mirror in the shower??? Good heavens, ugly bodies need not book this room unless you don’t mind being confronted with your own nakedness in the mirror while showering.
Rates: $506.00 per night.
Good to see they have a separate room for the loo. But wait…is that a phone right above the TP holder? If ever you want to call me from the loo, I will put you on hold. Indefinitely.
The Plaza’s bathrooms have enough space for twin 24-karat-gold-plated sinks and a partitioned-off toilet with its own window.
A full-size soaking tub and shower have intricate mosaic walls, and the thick Mascioni Turkish cotton towels and robes (available in both adult’s and children’s sizes) don’t disappoint. Do you feel pretty?
Rates: $677 per night.
Red marble and gold fixtures. Tasteless. This is when less would have been more. Rates: $556.00 per night
Jail Cell or Bathroom. If it wasn’t for the LCD TV, I wouldn’t have known the difference.
Oh no you didn’t…separate the tub/shower with a clear pane glass window from the seating area.
A voyeurs delight. Rates: $322 per night.
Freestanding tub in the middle of the room. The views of the Hudson are the thing.
Rates: $322 per night.
Photo below from 101 hotel, a boutique hotel, situated in the heart of Reykjavik, the capital of Iceland. The owners of the hotel, Designer Ingibjörg S. Pálmadottir and Jon Asgeir Johannesson are the same couple who are at the center of the lawsuit for installing an “ugly” IKEA kitchen in their Gramercy Park apartment..
