The Sweet in my Suite

When we were redoing the Master Bath, our goal was to get an upscale hotel suite feel. Thus, many of our finish decisions were driven by that: shiny silver fixtures, cream marble, black granite and a clear and frame-less glass shower door.

Imagine my delighted surprise when I got to my room at the Mandalay Bay Hotel for the ACE Conference last week and saw this:

And how it compares to THIS!

Even the floor. While the Mandalay Bay bathroom had an Absolute Black Accent strip inlaid in the Crema Marfil Marble floor, and our bathroom has Absolute Black Diamonds inlaid in our Polished Porcelain floor (which matches the Crema Marfil Marble counter tops, mosaic tiles and other accents), the colors and feel were really spot on.

AND the pivoting flat screen, which can be seen from the sinks or the tub were both there.

While Mandalay Bay has more modern lines, and we were going for more of an early century look, the feeling when you are in the rooms is really similar.

The one drawback our bathroom has compared to the fancy hotel suite: I have to clean my own toilet.


  1. I think yours is actually prettier!
    I do think though, that you should have maid service if your going to have a bathroom as fantastic as yours. Something to think about.

  2. I'm waiting to see a picture of the area with the frig and coffee-maker, how cool is that TV, frig, and coffee-maker, all in the bathroom.

  3. I love both bathrooms, but I Agree with Renee in that I like yours better. I love your marble floor with the absolute granite inlay and I think your wall mosaic tile is stunning. Your TV is bigger, too. :)
