Privacy: A sliding lock on the heavy copper door hermetically seals the space. You might as well be inside a giant taiko drum.
Amenities: A can of Lysol, a clay bowl of potpourri, and a Noguchi-style lamp sit on a shelf. On the marble sink, wooden trays hold paper towels and soap.
Drawbacks: Only one vessel per person, so you can’t spend as much time in here as you’d want to.
Strategy: Should the men’s room pique your interest while you're in the women’s room (or vice versa), remember that both are within a stone’s throw of the check-in stand. Get a friend to distract the hostess before you do any Kabuki-style gender-bending.
