Hotels are starting to install less and less tubs

Did you know that just 10 years ago Holiday Inn's would install a tub in about 95% of their new rooms?  These days it down to 55% of their new bathrooms get a tub in lieu of more fancy showers.  The thought has now changed to thinking that business travelers are less likely to lounge in a tub.

Which hotels are getting cool showers?  Lots of hotels are now starting to have glass walls between the shower and guest room like The Andaz in San Diego, some W Properties and The Standard in Los Angeles.   Is that too daring for you?  Other chains like Wyndham Gettysburg in Pennsylvania have 43 foot showers with 5 shower heads blasting you from every conceivable angle.   Or check out the photo above from a CitizenM Hotel room.  It's a glass tube that frosts over once you shut the door, otherwise it's clear.

 Either way, showers seem to be in while baths seems to be going out...
