2020's Best Restrooms Named
This time of year brings certain traditions, like leaves changing, pumpkin spice everywhere...and the crowning of America's Best Restroom by cleaning supply company Cintas.
The nationwide user votes have been counted, and this year, out of 10 finalists, the public restrooms at Bancroft Park in Colorado Springs, CO took the crown.
The facilities were lauded for their "cleanliness, visual appeal, innovation, functionality and unique design elements."
While some of the finalists boasted stunning views or museum-quality eye-candy, the Bancroft Park bathroom was praised for its self-sufficiency. "The restrooms are set up to self-clean after every 30 uses, and a park maintenance supervisor is alerted via an app when toilet paper or other supplies are running low," Cintas says.
Aside from bragging rights and a coveted spot in the America’s Best Restroom Hall of Fame, the operators of the Bancroft Park loos will enjoy $2,500 in cleaning goods and services from Cintas.
