A View from the Loo: In the Zone on the Throne and Other 'Over the Top' Bathrooms from BedandBreakfast.com

AUSTIN, Texas, June 27 /PRNewswire/ -- According to USA TODAY (10/2/06), hotels are spending billions on 21st-century upgrades, including "better beds, splashier showers, trendier bars and flat-screen TVs." Let's face it; hotels are following the trail blazed by B&Bs. Shared baths have been abandoned for palatial bathrooms sporting everything from "vertical Jacuzzis" with multi-jet showers to toilets with the best view in the house. "Savvy inngoers expect luxurious surroundings beyond the bedroom," explains Sandy Soule, Editor of BedandBreakfast.com. "B&Bs lead the industry in the art of pampering hospitality."
