Oh, the things that end up in my e-mail. But if you want to nominate a "best restroom," you can do so at www.bestrestroom.com. Here's the note:
Less than two weeks remain to submit nominations for the coveted “America’s Best Restroom Award VIII,” presented by Cintas Facility Services. Nominations will be accepted until March 31, 2009. Up to 10 finalists will be announced in June, at which time the Internet public will be asked to cast their votes. The winner will be announced in August and receive the coveted “America’s Best Restroom” plaque of recognition from Cintas. The top five vote-getters will secure their place in the “America’s Best Restroom Hall of Fame” found at www.bestrestroom.com.
The contest is open to any restroom that is free of charge and open to the public. Nominators are not required to have a professional relationship with the business or facility that manages the facility, but nominations based on personal experience are encouraged. Past champions have boasted bathrooms with breathtaking skyline views, unique décor and sparkling stalls.
Cintas created the America’s Best Restroom Award in 2002 to honor those businesses across America that combine impeccable hygiene with exceptional style in their public restrooms. “We’ve seen some amazing entries through the years, from the elegant to the artistic to the downright quirky,” says Cintas Senior Marketing Manager Keith Hartman.
Previous winners have included restrooms at Notre Dame University; The Grand Casino in Biloxi, Mississippi; Kohler Art Center in Sheboygan, Wisconsin; the Fort Smith, Arkansas Airport; Wendell’s Restaurant in Westerville, Ohio; Jungle Jim’s International Market in Fairfield, Ohio; and in 2008, Hermitage Hotel in Nashville, Tennessee.
