Reporter Nancy McKeon arrived on the scene of room H-211 earlier Thursday to investigate the facilities. However, increased traffic in the chamber thwarted her opportunity to get access behind the bathroom’s mahogany door.

Thanks to a reliable source, she did learn that there aren’t any motion sensors on the bathroom’s toilets or faucets.
