When Grand Casino Biloxi first opened, it was lauded as the “Toast of the Coast”, with its elegant, “neo-Victorian” theme. If the Casino as a whole was the Toast of the Coast, then surely the “Talk of the Coast” was the Ladies Restroom.
The Ladies Restroom, located on the Casino’s 3rd Floor, near the Marketplace Buffet and Poker Room, received its fair share of media and guest attention when the casino opened in January 1994. The restroom features two entrances that lead the guest to the focal point of the room – an atrium-like vanity area, featuring a large red birdcage and gilded chandelier. Surrounding the vanity area are several red ceramic sinks, each beneath a gilded mirror and light fixture. Forming a u-shape and divided by a wall from the vanity/sink area are the restroom’s stalls. Each stall’s red door features a portrait of a Victorian-era lady – inside each stall, another gilded mirror is attached to the back wall.
Over the years, we’ve had many, many guests compliment us on this restroom. Some even ask us where they can buy the photos of the ladies to put in their own homes”, said Cathye Ross, VP of Guest Services, Grand Casino Biloxi. “It’s definitely the talk of the town and I don’t think there’s another one like it.”
