Tanner’s Recommendation: Hotel Shower Curtain Windows

As I stood beneath the lukewarm spray this morning, six pairs of curtain hooks–like miniature prosthetic pirate hands–hung ominously overhead.

The hook holes, twelve dark eyes, stared down, and I swear I felt them inching closer.  Closer.

I beg you, Great Hotel Governor, make shower curtain windows mandatory.  You know what I’m talking about.  That band of clear plastic near the top through which the glorious light shines.

Privacy preserved.  Claustrophobia averted.

    Wow, those are beautiful! Personally, when I am renovating a bathroom, I prefer to base the entirety of the theme around the shower curtain. Some of those designs would really bring out some nice modern elements in an outdated space.

    This is the shower curtain you are looking for. Hampton sells it $46… Check the url

    The windows are brilliant…The ‘window’ is the best thing in hotel shower curtains since the outward curving bar that keeps the icky-sticky wet curtain from clinging to me.

    I found a similar one on the Hammacher Schlemmer website under see thru shower curtain

    Can anyone supply a site or phone number where I can purchase the see fabric through shower curtain. I also have used these in hotels and they are great.

    Called Hampton. Carmen said the picture on Hampton site is wrong.

    How about a decent shower light and less plastic junk on the planet?

    This is a Hampton Inn shower curtain, Mae. I’ve seen them in other chain hotels as well. Good luck on your search and thanks for checking out the blog.

    Hi Tanner,
    I love that pattern on the shower curtain window. I looked online but no luck. Can you please give me the name of the hotel so I can call and ask what company they use?
    Thank you.

    No more claustrophobia!Annie at http://www.ilmaofsweden.com has thought about the see through top. And the shower curtains are made of fabric! They are fabolous! Buy one and support her new business! We need more innovative people making reality of obvious things everyone needs.

    for those of us with shower-curtain-phobia, the next best invention is the crescent curtain rod. now we can wash without curtain hugs.

    I’ve seen the back of too many dark shower curtains. And many that were helpfully shadowed by the bathroom door too, limiting light as well as entry. The ‘window’ is the best thing in hotel shower curtains since the outward curving bar that keeps the icky-sticky wet curtain from clinging to me.

    The windows are brilliant. You know, like the little slip of paper you stick in the folds of the book you’re reading to hold your place. Something to…mark…your…book.

    Ha. I just experienced these shower curtains last weekend at a hotel and thought about how smart they were as well. Love the photo.
