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.
