Other finalists include the Headlands Lodge and Spa in Oregon and the Delaware Botanic Gardens. It's not the first time TPA has been a finalist in the contest. In 2013, it was named among Cintas' top nominees for the Main Terminal's renovations to 20 restrooms.

TPA's new Airside C restrooms were thoughtfully designed, including wide walkways and extra deep stalls that allow travelers plenty of space to maneuver their luggage. Travelers using this space will notice the uniquely-Floridian décor with large graphics and deep blue stone that reflect the scenery TPA-ASC-Restrooms-Beck-3found around Tampa Bay.
