Aloft is Cool but the Bathrooms are Bland

Aloft Hotel, Cool Springs, TN: A little surprised as I expected a bathroom a little more panache for this hotel,  I mean check out the logo, that’s cool. 
                       The wall tile was original, but that originality was minimized by the brick shape quarry floor tile in a mustard color that didn’t work with color or the pattern of the walls. The quarry tile was also used on the back wall of the stalls and it looked no better there. There was no cove base tile either, which makes it more difficult to clean as dirt tends to collect in corners. The adjacent flooring in the hall was stained concrete, why not continue it into the bathroom?
I thought it was a bit strange to have the baby changing accessory installed just inside the door but it was a stainless stell version. 
The countertops was done in white solid surface with two porcelain undermount sinks, but there was plenty of room for a third. The faucet controls were a bit undersized.

The best design element was the floor to ceiling frosted glass panel and door and what made it interesting was it absorbed blue light from the inside the bathroom and yellow light from outside the bathroom. 
Cleanliness: Excellent
Ventilation: Perfect
Size/Spaciousness: Three stall: one ADA and two standard.
Accouterments: The textured stainless steels stall doors had working full-sized handles hinges, very substantial.
