Cintas is currently accepting votes for its America’s Best Restroom Contest, an annual celebration of the cleanest and most fascinating facilities in the country. This year, the top 10 finalists include everything from sleek portable toilets to quaint public toilets, each with their own aesthetic, hygienic, and (in one case) poetic appeal, according to Cintas.
“We have a diverse list of establishments across the county competing for America’s Best Toilet,” said Cinta’s Marketing Manager Sean Mulcahey of the 10 finalists, first announced in July. “The public expects a higher standard of hygiene in public toilets and we are proud to highlight these unique toilets that are well-maintained without sacrificing aesthetic quality.”
Now in its 20th year, America’s Best Restroom contest, now in its 20th year, is trying a self-cleaning toilet in Colorado Springs, a “pristine” bathroom by Buc, according to Cintas, a company that supplies uniforms, cleaning products, and toiletries -ee in Texas and the facilities at the Nashville Zoo, which have floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the primate and python enclosures.
You shouldn’t turn your nose up at this year’s finalists either.

Terminal 4 of JFK Airport – New York, New York
Entering an airport toilet can be a tricky endeavor. But the toilets in JFK’s Terminal 4 on the east side of the customs arrivals hall are among the best in town, says Cintas. “Inside, gleaming white terrazzo floors, marbled walls and filigree wall lights combine to create a look and feel of simple elegance.”

Pump House – Kannapolis, North Carolina
This “pristine” public toilet in downtown Kannapolis is on a downtown street surrounded by sculptures, swings, a seating area, and even a lighted fountain. According to Cintas, it’s also a great place to “hang out” as it’s close to restaurants, shops, and a brewery.

Steamboat Springs – Steamboat Springs, Colorado
The public toilet in downtown Steamboat Springs, with its butterfly-shaped roof and mixed-material facade, has enough “visual appeal” to be a 2021 contender. It’s also heated year-round, which is what Steamboat Springs is where the winters are freezing cold and the nights are cool.

The Fed Community – Clarkston, Michigan
A “fun surprise” awaits the guests on the way to the Fed’s toilet. In the ladies’ room, guests are greeted with a floor-based message: “You are beautiful” in the light, airy room. Over in the boys’ room, visitors are greeted with darker tones and the words “Hey Handsome” in the tiles.

Two Cities Pizza – Cincinnati, Ohio
Countless people have relieved themselves in a New York subway car, but Two Cities Pizza in Cincinnati managed to recreate that experience in possibly the most beautiful way possible. The entrance looks like a New York subway platform (albeit clean) and the toilets are modeled after subway cars, complete with graffiti, advertisements, and station announcements over the speakers.

William S. Craycraft Park – Mission Viejo, California
The facilities at William S. Craycraft Park could be just as quaint as the park itself, with new tile, wood paneling, and stucco paneling. It is also impressive that it is designed for 540 guests per hour, in the event that a swarm of park visitors bursts onto the facility at once.
