Ladies Rooms Coast to Coast
Two events coincided this week, Internet Librarian and Bathroom Blogfest 2007. My travel to California for the librarian conference offered a unique opportunity to scope out ladies rooms in airports, restaurants, and public meeting spaces to share as part of the blogfest event.
What varied restroom facilities I observed! From my own library’s public potty with a view to the public restroom on Cannery Row forbidding scuba gear… to the live orchids and bromeliads in the Monterey Conference Center ladies rooms… to the adjusted facilities due to a higher percentage of women in attendance… to the practical signage signifying severe weather shelter… you can see all these and more in this set on flickr.
But what a hoot it was to meet mentor and fellow blogger Helene Blowers for the very first time in the Monterey Conference Center ladies room! We laughed and considered the “customer experience” we enjoyed quite appropriate.
Bathroom Blogfest gave me a chance to really stop and pay attention to the importance of presentation of public restroom facilities. It does make a difference in how a business is perceived when the ladies room is more than just presentable.
Please see all my fellow Bathroom Bloggers observation during this week for exciting thoughts on the public potty customer services experience:
