This year's 11th annual Cinta's America's Best Restroom Contest nominees ranged from the Hollywood Bowl's five-stall unisex bathroom to Gitape Restaurant in San Francisco's beautiful chandelier-touched restroom.

The contest sponsor, Cintas Corp. is a supplier of goods and services including restroom supplies to businesses. Sabrina Zimring said to USA Today Travel, "It's about context. It's not necessarily the most extravagant restroom, but maybe the most unusual or eye-catching bathroom in the least expected place."
