The worst hotel design flaws: There’s a window in my shower

Hotels are not exempt from having some bad design planning present within their previous blueprints. One guest even found that their shower had a window in it! Experts claim that hotels have a tendency to lose the connection with their customers when it comes to bathrooms and power outlets. Hotel chains need to find ways to maintain that connection with their guests when designing each suite during the initial construction process to avoid any serious mishaps.

Key Takeaways:

  • Hotel design flaws are more common than you think and can pop up in the most unexpected places in your guestroom.
  • One common faux-pas, as discovered by a very unhappy ten-year old in a New Mexico hotel, is a shower with clear glass doors, allowing the user no privacy at all.
  • Other design issues include very stylish looking vanities with no room at all for a guest’s toiletries, or very hard to reach electrical outlets.
