SAN DIEGO (KGTV) — La Jolla is home to award-winning food, scenic ocean views, and possibly, America's best bathroom.

That's right, the push for the country's best restroom is on and La Jolla's Hotel La Jolla, Curio Collection by Hilton, is in the running.

The La Jolla hotel hopes to bowl over the competition hosted by Cintas Corporation, which provides hygiene and safety products and services to various industries. Ten bathrooms from around the country are being considered, including a bathroom with a disco ball in Chicago, a "Hobbit-inspired" bathroom in Wisconsin, and even one covered in 250 pounds of glitter.

La Jolla's bathroom sits on the 11th floor of the hotel, flush with spectacular views of the region's coastline.

"Facing the coast, the large windows capture the natural, constantly changing ocean light, complementing the earth tones of the restroom interior. In this restroom, it’s common for guests to spend extra time washing their hands just to gaze out at the beautiful views," Cintas says.

Bathrooms were chosen based on cleanliness, visual appeal, innovation, functionality, ad unique design.

Voting for the best bathroom is being held online through Sept. 18. Whichever location logs the most votes takes the throne as America's best bathroom as well as $2,500 in facility services provided by Cintas.
