We're sure you have some good roadside rest stop stories for us, but let's stay focused on the hotels, ok? Do any come to mind?
The last hotel to top the list was back in 2008 when the Hermitage Hotel in Nashville, Tennessee, took home the porcelain crown. But there have been many in the top five since: Radisson Blu Aqua Chicago finished third in 2012 (shown above); the Renaissance Arlington Capital View Hotel in Crystal City, VA finished third in 2011; the Grand America in Salt Lake City finished second and the The Muse in New York City was fifth in 2010; and the Tremont Plaza Hotel in Baltimore was second in 2009, among others.
We stayed at the Grand America in Salt Lake last year, and whole-heartedly agree that those huge bathrooms deserve some street cred. We're also glad to see the Tremont Plaza Hotel has got its interiors in order -- we weren't so impressed with the office-building views a few years back.
Ten finalists will be announced in August, at which time online voting will begin. You can nominate your pics online now until then at www.bestrestroom.com.
