PORTLAND – A new claim to fame for the City of Roses: One of America’s Top 10 Restrooms.

A lot of companies work to make their customers comfortable while using the facilities, but Old Town’s Ground Kontrol arcade went the extra mile to create a memorable restroom experience.

The floor tile is inspired by the arcade classics Pac-Man and Ms. Pac-Man. The rooms feature lighting inspired by the movie “Tron,” complete with color-changing sinks.

And the owner decided to keep things environmentally friendly with automatic faucets and hand dryers.

The America’s Best Restroom contest is sponsored by Cintas. One of Ground Kontrol’s competitors is New York’s Waldorf Astoria hotel.
