Only cold water comes out of hot water faucet, only in 1 of 4 bathrooms.

We have 4 bathrooms, 2 down and 2 up. The upstairs bathroom furthest from the hot water tank has stopped getting hot water. The hot water comes out cold in both faucets and the tub. Getting hot water was slow before but now after running for up to 10 minutes it is still cold. The pressure is still good but the water is cold. Anyone experience this problem?

It's hard to tell with the limited information you provided. We know nothing about your pipes, the distance and more.

Take a look at your water heater thermostat setting. If it's not on hot, turn it to hot. Wait an hour or so, then test for hot water in the second floor bathroom.
