Earlier this year we told you that the 21c Museum Hotel’s restrooms were in the running for the title as America’s Best Restroom. The results are now in and it seems Louisville has lost out to Nashville for the prestigious title and ranked second in the national competition. This is terrible news considering Louisville’s recent string of top rankings in random best-of lists.
Sure, the Nashville Hermitage’s restrooms may not feature video-art installations, ultra-modern fixtures, or a see-through mirrored waterfall urinal, but they do have a lot of glowing stripes. The contest was sponsored by Cintas Facilities Management who officially say, (more photo’s of the Hermitage can be found on the competition web site). We suppose second best restroom is better than nothing (hey, we beat New York City), but be warned Nashville, the River City won’t go down the crapper without a fight!
