The Scrawl on the Wall

Calm and fulfilled

Man, this is the Rolls Royce of public toilets, and has been my go-to going spot for years. Nice soap, cloth towels, full-length stall doors – just pure class all the way.

There are several restrooms in the Charles. The best one for travelers and non-guests is on the second floor, next to Henrietta's Table. If you'd rather not enter through the lobby (and really, who wants to risk getting busted?), just walk up the outdoor stairs into the courtyard and cut right into the glass doors. The restrooms are to the left of the stairs, right next to the Henrietta's Table entrance.

For gents, you've got a urinal and two stalls to work with, and I'd say 80% of the time you can snag a stall.

Time has not dulled the charms of this restroom. I've used it day and night, and even encouraged a drunken British friend of mine to vomit there after midnight on a Wednesday – which he did.

It's always open, and always there for you. Can I marry a bathroom?
