Talk about the real lap of luxury. Two Calgary washrooms are so posh, they’ve been nominated for Canada’s Best Restroom.
The contest is run by Cintas, a company which provides restroom cleaning services to about 55,000 businesses in Canada.
The company has shortlisted five washrooms, with stunning stalls or incredible architectural details, and they want you to vote for a winner.
Calgary has two toilets on the shortlist, which also features locations in Whitecourt, Winnipeg and Montreal. Calgary’s contenders are:
Sauce Italian Kitchen & Market
“The restrooms at the Sauce Italian Kitchen & Market are a true luxury, featuring a sculpted bronze handle on the solid wood entry door and sparkling epoxy floors,” reads a release.
“Each restroom stall boasts a full height white glass door with polished chrome hardware, Murano glass chandelier, purse ledge and tall mirror.”
“The vanity, with its custom polished chrome base, is what takes this restroom to the next level.
“But function has not been overlooked, as the restroom utilizes only the best modern fixtures with touchless water flow on the lavatories and flushing of toilets.”
“In August 2011, the Calgary Municipal Land Corp. installed these high-tech, self-cleaning public toilets in Calgary’s East Village,” reads a release.
“They cost US $125,000 to build and boast automated toilet roll dispensers, modern hand washing and drying facilities and self-flushing capabilities.”
“The washrooms play music when the door is closed and locked, and a sanitized toilet seat emerges from the wall.
“After 10 minutes, the doors automatically open, so there’s no lingering in this loo. They also feature artwork displayed on the exterior walls, which changes every 24 months.”
Voting is open until October 24. The owners of the winning poshest potty will receive a plaque of recognition and $2,500 in Cintas cleaning services.
