The thrones at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport have been crowned America's best.
And in an online vote MSP took the whole thing, getting nearly 40 percent of the roughly 5,000 votes cast, the Pioneer Press reports.
"The restroom is often the first place visited on arrival and the last stop for departing passengers, leaving a lingering impression of their destination," Alan Howell of the Metropolitan Airports Commission said in a news release. "We are thrilled to be honored with this award for our efforts to improve the aesthetics of our restrooms and make the customer experience memorable."
MSP began renovating its restrooms a few years ago, and by 2025 it’ll have remodeled more than 100 sets of public restrooms in both terminals, Cintas says. The revamped restrooms have softer lighting, curated art display cases, original mosaic art, larger stalls with space for your roller bag, as well as a hook to hang your coat or bag, among other features.
The airport will receive $2,5000 in facility services from Cintas for being named the golden throne. Here's a list of the other finalists in this year's competition – they were selected based on cleanliness, visual appeal, innovation, functionality and unique design elements.
One other Minnesota restroom has gotten the royal treatment of being named America’s Best Bathroom – in 2013, the Varsity Theater in Minneapolis was named the best.
