At The Rio, Checking Yourself Out And Getting An Eyeful, Too

Mirror, mirror on the wall, who's the pervy-est of them all?

We've seen quite a few interesting bathrooms around Vegas and we're not talking about public restrooms, either.

SKYLOFTS at MGM Grand has two-story lofts where the shower features a wall of glass looking down on the first level below and out at a stunning floor-to-ceiling view. (Ask for the one-bedroom, if you're interested in trying it out yourself.) The entrance hall of Mandalay Bay's standard rooms feature a window looking straight into the restroom. (Not really a good choice for fellas looking to save money and room together, especially if one really likes to take baths.) Meantime, Bellagio features some suites where the square footage of the posh his-and-her bathrooms have got to be larger than the living space itself. (The Cypress Suite is to die for.)

But, @GeorgeAddams on Twitter tipped us off to something we haven't come across yet. During a stay at the Rio recently, his standard room was upgraded to a higher floor. Once inside, he noticed a large decorative mirror that took a prominent position on the bedroom wall.

It was only after I had gone into the bathrroom did I realize that the whole mirror isn't a mirror. One portion in the middle is a window, between the bedroom to right over the bathtub. It is not hidden in the bathroom. It is obvious that you can see into the bedroom from the shower area.

Why is it there, I wondered. I suppose it could give some light into the bathroom. Perhaps my mind is just in the gutter, but it seemed clear to me that the real function of this would be for someone in the bedroom to watch someone else take a shower.

I had never seen anything like this before. It was just a surprising, and fun, Vegas discovery.

Bottom line? No need for dinner and a show at Rio! If you have the right room, you can put on your own performance!
