I love the art work on this door. Wish I could tell you what the interior was like, but it was occupied, so I used the Men's room. It was spotless with a Mexican tile floor, hammered silver mirror and hand washing instructions in Spanish. The dinner was superb. Some of the best Mexican food I have had in this country.

Now I know why I was told not to close the door!

Really I don't see the point in putting the sign on the door as I doubt anyone will go back and wash.

Think this is the first time I was in a hotel that had a bifold door into the bathroom. (Hard to photograph)That would have indicated a small room, but mine is simple but ample with a large window that opens fully- always a plus in my book. I have a single bed, haven't seen one of those in a long time in a hotel, with 2 soft king size pillows karate chopped in the middle like you see in decorating magazines, a bottom sheet with a tri-folded eiderdown on top and no top sheet, just like in Sulzburg.

This bathroom is so snug there is not even an inch between the sink and the arc of the door. I liked the two blue drawings of trains that were done by a family member. I even liked meeting Jim Crawford, our district's candidate for state senate.I am not inclined to go to political events,but was happy I did.Even signed up to make calls and help get out the vote.

Maple & Main Gallery: Chester, CT

Couldn't resist printing both of these signs. So many directives and so little time when you are in a rush to go.As you can see, I did not manage the correct door lock procedure. I was sparing with the t.p.

This is not the entrance to the restroom, but an ornamental curiosity on the inside of the door. Doubious decorating, but the renovating interior overall was pleasing as was the dinner. A nice addition to the dining options of this city.

Oyster Club: Mystic, CT

I love places that have WCs so no one has to wait in line unnecessarily. That's a seashell on the wodden sign and you can see a glimpse of the sea blue inside the restroom, oicking up the theme of this seaport town. This totally charming new addition to the Mystic restaurant scene boasts a chef fromChester's  River Tavern and a maitre d from Hartford's Firebox. They are a winning combination. Well worth a half hour drive to eat or simply to have a drink in the cozy bar or, when the warm weather holds, on the outdoor terrace.

On the other side of this charming door is the restaurant... no hall, no divider..straight into the tables of which there are only about 8. A bit disconcerting to be so close. My friend had raved about the place. It was good, but not worth the trek.
