“This year’s contest recognizes a wide range of finalists, each offering a one-of-a-kind restroom experience with the latest technology or imaginative decor,” said Sean Mulcahey, Marketing Manager, Cintas. “As the COVID-19 pandemic has brought the importance of clean restrooms to the forefront, we’re proud to spotlight these unique and well-maintained restrooms that provide comfortable spaces for guests.”

The 2020 America’s Best Restroom Finalists include:

AirTrain JFK’S Jamaica Station – New York, NY

The new, spacious restrooms at AirTrain JFK’s Jamaica Station are equipped with modern designs and are nearly three times as large as the previous restrooms, with wider stalls to account for travelers’ luggage. Both men’s and women’s rooms are equipped with changing tables for families traveling with small children. In addition, the Port Authority has added a spacious family-friendly restroom to provide more options for those traveling with family members of all ages.

Bancroft Park – Colorado Springs, Colorado

What citizens always want in parks is a restroom that’s clean, which is why the Bancroft Park self-cleaning restrooms is the perfect solution. The facility holds three restrooms, including an ADA-compliant option, and each comes with green, red and yellow lights to show availability. Soap, water, toilet paper and a dryer are all activated with the wave of a hand. The restrooms are set up to self-clean after every 30 uses, and a park maintenance supervisor is alerted via an app when toilet paper or other supplies are running low.

DFW Airport – DFW Airport, Texas

The DFW Airport integrated smart restroom technology into all of its gate-side restrooms to include aesthetically pleasing fixtures, touch free dispensing, consumable tracking, and other smart restroom features, allowing staff to operate on demand, rather than a time-scheduled approach for making sure the bathrooms are cleaned and well stocked. Digital signage outside each restroom tells guests how many stalls are open, when cleaning is in progress, and indicator lights inside let them know which stalls are available. These features will help with social distancing efforts during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, as well as data for the cleaning staff to efficiently manage increased cleaning protocols.

Gaslight Bar & Grill – Cincinnati, OH

The restrooms in Gaslight Bar & Grill are a mix of classic and new, like the restaurant and the former library in Clifton, OH. Classic Bianco Onion marble tile on the walls compliment the white/grey flower mosaic tile floor in the women’s restroom and the large scale dark gray stone floor tile in the men’s restroom. Copper flecked stone like sink counters, beveled glass mirrors, as well as gold wallpaper and wall sconce lights add sparkle. Contrasts of black iron details and custom wood partitions and doors provide classic world touches. Touchless faucets and trash cans are sleek and hygienic combining the best of modern and classic. The mix of materials, textures and details reflect the attention given by the owners and chef to the Gaslight Bar & Grill.

Greeley Square Park – New York, New York: Situated in Greeley Square Park and named for the American newspaper editor and publisher and politician Horace Greeley, the park’s restroom takes stand-alone outdoor facilities to new heights. Built and maintained by the 34th Street Partnership, a non-profit business improvement district, the Greeley restroom hosts hundreds of visitors daily, including local workers, tourists, and shoppers. The restroom was renovated in January 2019 and its amenities include historic photographs, classical music, rotating seat covers, full-time attendant, Italian tile, fresh flowers, and an HVAC system for seasonal climate control.

Kimpton Muse Hotel – New York City, New York

The bathrooms at the Kimpton Muse Hotel allow guests and diners at the adjacent Muse Bar to pick a stall according to their personality or mood. There are six “sin-inspired” unisex stalls, each with a different theme and jaw-dropping design scheme: Glam, Vain, Rebel, Passion, Macho, and Envy. Upon entering the white restroom area – meant to represent purgatory – each stall opens directly into a common lounge area designed accordingly to its name.

Portland Japanese Garden – Portland, Oregon

Portland Japanese Garden’s restroom strikes the perfect balance between practical and beautiful. Located in the Jordan Schnitzer Japanese Arts Learning Center, all materials in the bathroom – from the texture of the tiles to the design of the fixtures – were chosen for their standalone beauty, as well as functional works of art. These understated shaped and forms are aligned with the Japanese aesthetic of minimalism and with the qualities of a Japanese garden, which helps the mind and body feel serene and tranquil, even in the most vulnerable state of being.

Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts – Scottsdale, Arizona

The Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts is accustomed to standing ovations for the world-class artists who grace its stage each season, but a 2005 renovation of its restrooms has likewise earned rave reviews. Designed by award-winning Scottsdale architect John Douglas, the Center’s upgraded restrooms are sleek and modern with terrazzo flooring, glass-tiled walls and a generous number of spacious, stainless-steel stalls that offer maximum privacy. Both men’s and women’s restrooms are fully accessible and feature changing stations. An ingenious lighting system can be custom programmed for certain demographics or holidays such as LGBTQ events. Mindful of the Center’s arid setting, the facility includes environmentally friendly, low-flow faucets and toilets to conserve water.

Swift’s Attic – Austin, Texas

Built to be comfortable yet exciting, the Swift’s Attic restrooms designed to accent the spaces natural historic beauty and character while bringing modern elements and conveniences to its guests. The Gothic-style restrooms feature floral-patterned sinks, antique light fixtures and gold and black striped wallpaper.

The Guild Hotel – San Diego, California

The building originally opened in 1924 and served as the Army/Navy YMCA but was reborn in 2019 as The Guild Hotel. The bathrooms located conveniently off the lobby space provide guests a clean and welcoming experience. The beautiful marble sink in both the men’s and women’s restroom have a stunning visual appeal. This coupled with the tastefully decorated lighting and mirror will welcome any smile.

 

The 10 finalists were selected based on cleanliness, visual appeal, innovation, functionality and unique design elements.

Les candidats au concours ont été jugés selon cinq critères : propreté, attrait visuel, innovation, fonctionnalité et éléments de design uniques. Voici les cinq finalistes :

  1. Bicycle Thief – Halifax, Nouvelle-Écosse

Les toilettes de Bicycle Thief sont modernes et élégantes, et accordent la priorité au confort des clients. Chaque salle de toilettes propose des cabines distinctes bien approvisionnées, chacune agrémentée d’une œuvre artistique et d’une chandelle parfumée. De grands miroirs décoratifs couvrent les murs adjacents pour créer une vue élargie des murs de marbre et des installations de la salle de toilettes. Les fleurs fraîches y sont changées chaque jour et placées sur le comptoir de granite. Notons également les distributeurs de savon sans contact, le désinfectant à mains, les éviers de porcelaine, les robinets chromés et les distributeurs de serviettes sans contact.

  1. Hawthorn Dining Room – Calgary, Alberta

Hawthorn a fait appel à Frank Architecture pour le design de ses toilettes qu’elle voulait simples, mais élégantes. Elles affichent un éclatant papier peint de fleurs surdimensionnées conférant une touche de légèreté qui contraste bien avec le décor rustique contemporain de la salle à manger. Au lieu d’un éclairage habituel, Hawthorn a ajouté des diffuseurs rose pâle qui donnent à cet espace une luminosité à la fois douce et chaleureuse. Hawthorn s’est associée à Lowen’s Natural Skincare, une entreprise locale de Calgary, pour créer une collection de savons et lotions d’artisan exclusives à Hawthorn en éditions printemps-été et automne-hiver. En plus de ce concept doux et raffiné, Hawthorn voulait s’assurer d’offrir des toilettes inclusives, et à cette fin a ajouté un espace toilette distinct non genré.

  1. Leña Restaurante – Toronto, Ontario

À l’étage inférieur de Leña Restaurante, un restaurant animé d’inspiration argentine situé au coin des rues Yonge et Richmond, vous trouverez un couloir exotique et fantaisiste qui mène aux salles de toilettes. Les murs du couloir sont recouverts d’un papier peint animalier d’une étonnante beauté, dont le motif est justement le même que celui que possède Anthony Walsh, le chef du restaurant, dans son domicile familial. Les planchers sont agrémentés d’un zébrage de carreaux en chevrons. Sur les murs sont posés deux lumineux miroirs convexes, parfaits pour faire des égoportraits fantaisistes. Les cabines sont spacieuses et intimes, et chacune possède son propre lavabo aux accents cuivrés.

  1. Westview RV Park – Wetaskiwin, Alberta

Ces toilettes ont récemment été transformées. Westview voulait offrir à ses clients un traitement cinq étoiles et leur permettre un grand confort durant leur séjour au parc. Les planchers d’époxy sont texturés pour réduire les risques de glissade et les coins ont été arrondis pour faciliter le nettoyage. Parallèlement, les comptoirs de béton et les carreaux élégants en font les toilettes de terrain de camping les plus impressionnantes qui soient.

  1. Yorkdale Shopping Centre – Toronto, Ontario

Les toilettes non genrées de Yorkdale offrent à tous une option inclusive, autant pour accueillir les individus de tous les genres, que pour les personnes qui pourraient avoir besoin d’un quelconque accompagnement. La salle de toilettes moderne est dotée d’un évier de verre givré avec une chute latérale, de carreaux bleu vif et d’une grande zone de places assises de l’entrée. Le centre commercial comprend aussi six salles de toilettes pour femmes et six salles de toilettes pour hommes, deux salles de toilettes familiales, trois salles d’allaitement, et 12 salles de toilettes individuelles.

  1. Hawthorn Dining Room – Calgary, AB

Designed with Frank Architecture, Hawthorn wanted its washrooms to be simple yet elegant. They feature bold wallpaper with oversized flowers, giving the washrooms a light touch, which works great against the strong modern vintage décor in the dining room. Instead of regular lighting, Hawthorn added light rose diffusers to give the space a warm yet soft glow. Hawthorn partnered with Lowen’s Natural Skincare, a local Calgary company, to make curated spring/summer and fall/winter lines of soaps and lotions only available in Hawthorn. In addition to this soft yet sophisticated design, Hawthorn wanted to ensure its washrooms were inclusive for everyone with the addition of a separate gender-neutral space.

  1. Leña Restaurante – Toronto, ON

Located on the lower level of Leña Restaurante, a lively Argentinian-inspired restaurant at the corner of Yonge and Richmond, you’ll find a playful, exotic corridor leading to the restrooms.

The floors are adorned with dramatic zebra herringbone tiles. The walls feature two luminous fisheye mirrors, perfect for unconventional selfies. The stalls themselves are private and roomy, featuring a spacious washbasin with brass accents.

  1. Westview RV Park – Wetaskiwin, AB

These washrooms recently underwent a major makeover. Westview wanted to give its customers the five-star treatment and make them feel comfortable while staying at the park.

  1. Yorkdale Shopping Centre – Toronto, ON

Yorkdale’s gender inclusive washrooms offer an inclusive option for anyone, including people of diverse gender identities and those who may require accompaniment of some kind.
