 Restroom Ratings | How to Rate Restrooms Like the Pros
A restroom reviewer is constantly barraged by any number of sights, sounds, feels (remember learning the difference between good touch and bad touch), tastes (rarely), and, of course, smells.
While you should definitely make note of the obvious major implements of the restroom (toilets and sinks and whatnot), it is of equal importance that you take in the fine details; the chipped tile, the odd blue plunger, the flickering light, the lemony scent.

 The Urinal
In most modern restrooms, urinals are individual entities, though it was not uncommon in the past (and is still the case in some bars and taverns) for there to be a single long trough which men stood in front of to relieve themselves.
Any form of dialogue is discouraged at the urinal--unless, of course, the two men walked into the restroom together talking, in which case their vocalization is merely a means to overlook the fact that they are in a room together holding their respective genitals.
They would wait until their bladders were near bursting, then rush into the restroom, stride up to the urinal, and unleash a veritable torrent of urine that sprayed loudly into the small amount of water that resides in the basin.

 Restroom Technology Paying Off
It used to be that visiting a restroom meant touching the door, the flush valve, the faucet, the hand dryer or paper-towel dispenser and the door again when leaving.
A restroom that is designed appropriately, uses appropriate touchless technology and is cleaned with the proper products is much easier to maintain and at a lower cost than a restroom that is poorly designed and that does not use touchless technology.
Indeed, housekeeping crews that clean a touchless restroom that uses technology at its best will take greater pride in their work because the restrooms will be cleaner, will remain cleaner longer and generate fewer complaints — significant benefits that are likely to satisfy any housekeeping manager.
