Postcards from the Powder Room: Hotel Bathrooms with Unbelievable Views

Sep 21, 2017

The Colosseum, Sydney Opera House, Central Park, and reefs along under the Persian Sea are among the views guests can take in from their hotel bathtub.

With acres of marble framing postcard-worthy vistas, here are 9 views that make us never want to leave the bathroom.

Travelzoo Tip: The line for these bathrooms can run long -- that underwater suite for instance books up far in advance. Don't worry if you can't find these exact rooms, as these hotels excel on all sides: no matter where you book in the building, you'll get great design, top service, and a prime location.

Four Seasons Hotel, Sydney

You'll shrivel up to a prune in this bathtub, trying (and failing) to peel yourself away from that view of the Opera House.

Pan Pacific Vancouver

Anyone can be the fairest of them all when the mirror is crowned by this stunning panorama.



Viceroy Central Park, New York

They've proven that shampoo and conditioner are more effective when applied against a backdrop of Central Park in a double-wide shower.



Atlantis The Palm, Dubai

Don't be bashful bathing in front of the sharks that swim around this underwater suite -- they're not wearing any clothes either.



Hotel Victor South Beach, Miami Beach

Sure, you could go across the street to the crowded beach, or you could stay in this quiet, private bathroom, where you don't have to share the sun and sea views with anyone.

Secrets The Vine, Cancun

You book an oceanfront suite because you never want to stop looking at the ocean, even while bathing. Don't have to worry here, where they plunk the tub right in the middle of the room.



Shangri-La Hotel, Toronto

At press time, traffic on Toronto's University Avenue (pictured) was verging on code red. That means lots of people sitting in stopped cars looking up at this hotel's glistening glass skin, into the sleek marble bathrooms within. Look good and don't be shy.

Les Suites Orient Bund, Shanghai

You'd need to capsize a cargo ship full of bubble bath to foam up Shanghai's Huangpu River. Best to just stay in your room and stick to smaller scale suds.

Palazzo Manfredi, Rome

Repeat that lather and rinse all day if you must -- there's no rushing out of the shower when your next-door neighbor is the Colosseum (see it peeking in there?).
