Call it the battle for the “Top Potty.”

The Cintas Corporation today announced its annual list of finalists for America’s top toilet, and among the list is Chicago’s American Girl Place on North Michigan Ave.

According to a statement, “A team of survey editors once again scanned the country for the most creative and clean public restrooms. Will the 2014 winner be a restroom covered in plant life? What about one housed inside a building that looks like a toilet? Or maybe a Pennsylvania restroom where the water from the sink begins inside a waterfall?

The top vote-getters (yes, it’s up to you!) will be announced later this fall.

The reasons AGP made the cut:

Bright, whimsical colors. Mirrors and sinks designed for children’s height. Even signature doll holders in each bathroom stall. A trip to the restroom at American Girl Place in Chicago is as memorable as a walk through the store! … From shopping, dining, going to the doll hair salon – and yes, even down to the added touches like having a holder in the restroom for her special doll – American Girl wants the overall experience at the store to be a day a girl will cherish forever.

Voting is under way at www.bestrestroom.com through October 31.
