Nashville hotel men's room best in nation

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- The schoolhouse lights reflect off the art deco onyx and lime green tile.

The spotless terrazzo floor gleams.

We're talking a high class john.

The public men's room at the Hermitage Hotel has been voted the nation's best restroom for 2008 in balloting conducted for Cintas, which supplies restroom supplies and work uniforms.

Hotel management has photos of weddings conducted there. And who knows what political intrigue has played out in the comfort stop across the street from Tennessee's legislative offices.

Second in the voting was the 21c Museum Hotel in Louisville, Ky., where gentlemen at the urinals can look out through one-way mirrors.

Lessers were Brio in Rockford, Ill., rated third; The Signature Room at the 95th in Chicago, ranked fourth; and Smith College Museum of Art in Northhampton, Mass., which placed fifth.
