TPA Wins Best Restroom Contest

Tampa International Airport (TPA) has won the 2022 Cintas America’s Best Restroom Contest.

TPA’s sleek, modern and newly renovated Airside C restroom were among 10 finalists that were selected by Cintas Corporation based on cleanliness, visual appeal, innovation, functionality and unique design elements. The public had the opportunity to vote during the month of August, choosing among restrooms at Delaware Botanic Gardens, Headlands Lodge and Spa in Oregon, Tori Tori in Orlando and several other beautiful facilities.

The Airside C facilities, which were completed on the north side of the terminal earlier this year and are being finished on the south side in coming weeks, showcase new high-design, spacious restrooms, coupled with quality craftsmanship and an inviting, yet durable, material palette. The entrance welcomes travelers to their uniquely Florida experience, boasting large graphics and a natural, deep blue stone with high-res images of quintessential Florida flora, back printed on floor-to-ceiling sheets of impact-resistant glass. The clean, contemporary aesthetic is completed by light-colored solid surface vanities, which incorporate TPA’s signature “cockpit” concept.

“Tampa International Airport has always provided guests with a world-class restroom experience, as we know it’s one of the top factors in being ranked among the nation’s favorite airports year after year,” TPA CEO Joe Lopano said. “A lot of work and resources went into designing and building state-of-the-art restrooms at our busiest terminal, Airside C, and we’re thrilled they are now recognized by Cintas and contest voters as America’s best in 2022.”
