43 Showers Backlog: Pasadena

I started to set up a photoblog-ish thing over at www.43showers.com as the future home of all of them, but that stalled  mid-birth so I'm cross-posting this one here from there. I have to apologize for not capturing the shower handle at the Austin Sheraton. It's a testament to how frenzied SXSW was that it's […]

43 Showers: Hotel Le Cirque, New Orleans, LA

43 Showers: Le Cirque at Lee Circle Just adequate. From the photo it looks clearly marked, but in the stall when the temp is selected, it can be hard to tell which way to turn it. I scalded myself once when in mid-shower I forgot what was where. But the room's reasonable price, the view of […]

Highly recommended, especially if you are […]

43 Showers: Baton Rouge Motel 6

43Showers – Motel 6 Baton Rouge Can't complain about these controls. A highly effective plastic sticker labelling system made them easy to operate. The shower wasn't terrible. Water pressure was below-average. Baton Rouge water has a greasy, filmy thing going, which I speculated is a handy and thoughtful city additive to replace the need for […]

Shower handle at San Jose Hyatt

San Jose Hyatt No hint of a 'hot' or 'cold' indicator. For any newcomers, this is the latest entrant in 43Showers, a chronicle of all of the hotel shower handles I meet. They're all different, and most are confusing when you're staring at them early in the morning for the first time. Look for the […]
