The bathrooms at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport are in the running for "America's Best Restroom."

Cintas Corporation, which is a supplier of products for public restrooms, announced the 10 finalists Tuesday, including the recently renovated restrooms at the Twin Cities airport.

And urine luck – people can vote for their favorite throne online here through Nov. 4.

MSP began renovating its restrooms a few years ago, and by 2025 it'll remodel 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 to for your roller bag, as well as a hook to hang your coat or bag, among other features.

The other finalists in the running for the best bathroom include:

  • Coca-Cola Park in Allentown, Pennsylvania
  • Leña Brava restaurant in Chicago
  • The Novel Neighbor bookstore in St. Louis
  • Safe House restaurant and bar in Milwaukee, Wisconsin
  • Swift & Sons restaurant in Chicago
  • The Charmery ice cream shop in Baltimore, Maryland
  • The Vine hotel lounge in New York City
  • The Way Station saloon in Brooklyn, New York
  • Urban Ecology Center in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

They were selected based on cleanliness, visual appeal, innovation, functionality and unique design elements. The winner will receive $2,500 in facility services.

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.
