Best Rest Stop -- Urban (2001)

Oxford Hotel

Technically, the downstairs restrooms in the century-old Oxford Hotel are not intended for the public -- but they're just too lovely not to share with the world. Although the smaller bathrooms that you reach through McCormick's Fish House are nice enough, the real winners are below the hotel lobby. And while the women's bathroom is spacious, well-stocked and boasts acres of vintage Victorian tile, the men's room can claim magnificent marble urinals -- the very vessels that Bat Masterson is rumored to have emptied his, er, weapon into. To pee or not to pee? That's no question when you're in the vicinity of the Oxford. Just walk in like you own the place, head downstairs and have a seat.
