Versante Hotel 5 Star Bathroom

The luxurious Versante Hotel has been shortlisted as one of five finalists for Canada’s Best Restroom 2022 contest. Greater Vancouver’s newest luxury boutique property believes it is the standout in the competition final this summer.

Located at 8499 Bridgeport Road in Richmond, BC, this dramatically bold and bright unisex facility features Chinese-night-market-inspired lanterns on the ceiling, black and white marble accents, and brass lion head door knockers on each stall. Each visitor to the washroom can experience stunning views of the ceilings and gold details on stall doors. 

The country-wide voting process has begun for the contest that highlights businesses that have invested in developing and maintaining exceptional washrooms. Finalists were determined by their rankings of cleanliness, visual appeal, innovation, functionality and unique design elements. 

The top spots include bathrooms from all over the country, and the public can now vote for their favorite facility until July 8.  American-based company Cintas is running the contest and are well-known for providing services and products like restroom supplies to businesses. The winner of the contest will receive $2,500 in facility services from Cintas Canada.

Years in the making and hugely anticipated, Versante Hotel — Greater Vancouver’s first new luxury boutique hotel in years, and the first hotel of its kind in the city of Richmond — opened its doors nearly a year ago and has been acclaimed by Forbes as being Vancouver’s new ‘it’ hotel.  Every detail at Versante, from leading-edge technology to vibrantly colorful interior design, has been carefully considered to offer the most unique and captivating hotel experience in the region. 

“Having spent almost 20 years managing boutique hotels in Canada and the US, I can’t overstate how special a property Versante is,” says General Manager, Sanjeet Sadana. “In a region crowded with branded hotels, we’re proud to be Richmond’s only independent boutique hotel, and locally owned and operated. Our guests are independent spirits who seek out fresh and innovative experiences everywhere they go.”

 Here are a few of the many reasons why Versante is Canada’s most remarkable hotel experience of 2022: 


100 guestrooms and suites boasting five bold décor themes – developed by Vancouver-based CHIL Interior Design – evoke a distinct personality. Wall coverings, fabric selections and furniture colors were customized to create an immersive experience within each room scheme. In addition to either two luxury queens or one king-size bed, each room features:

• Contactless check-in/out, room entry and lighting controls via the Versante App. The app also allows for contactless room-service ordering, as well as connecting with the Versante guest-services team
