Finalists in the America’s
Best Restroom IX contest, sponsored by Cintas Corporation, have
established a new standard for restroom quality. These washrooms are
testaments to their proprietors’ sense of taste, flair and attention to
detail, and feature some of the world’s finest materials and customer
comforts as well as a few surprises.
The public is invited to vote online through August 31 at
www.bestrestroom.com. The site takes visitors on a photographic tour of
each facility and then encourages them to choose their favorite. The
winner will be announced in September 2010.
This year’s finalists include the Santa Monica Pier, which features an ocean theme
with undulating roof form that evokes thoughts of a
vintage wooden roller coaster or ocean waves.
finalists are all quite unique, they have one thing in common: all are
exceptionally clean. Cintas created the Best Restroom award in 2002 to
honor those businesses across America that place high value on hygiene
and exceptional style in their public restrooms.
Over the last eight
years, the contest has attracted tens of thousands of voters. The 2010
winner will receive a plaque of recognition and a coveted place in
America’s Best Restroom “Hall of Fame” section of the program’s Web
