1214 Queen St. W.
Nestled just west of downtown Toronto finds a truly unique landmark of the city’s history and current artistic intentions. The Gladstone hotel presents itself with a character that is bold, while firmly identifying the heritage of the 1889 building. The restoration that the romanesque building received gave it a new life; luring the artistic and creative to stroll through its halls.
Each of the 37 hotel rooms takes the patron into another world. Artists were assigned to each room, bringing their own style and creative thoughts on what a hotel room should be. From suitcases piled to the ceiling, puzzle pieces scattered around the room, to sleek polished woods and modern decor. The hotel offers a place for each of our tastes and minds to feel satisfied.
The Gladstone Hotel offers more than just a collection of mesmerizing bedrooms. The choice of the welcoming Melody Bar; full of contemporary art, relaxed atmosphere, and some of the most renowned drinks Toronto offers will be tempting. The Cafe, full of fresh smells of coffee and croissants, complimented by sounds of wine splashing into glasses and fresh conversation creates a worthy adversary in where to dine.
Toronto is encapsulated within the Gladstone Hotel. The unique rooms, distinct dining experiences, and impressive collections of artwork one discovers throughout the galleries, studios, and spaces of the diverse building leads to feelings of inspiration, tradition, and affable comfort. The biggest decision is which room to lay your head after the adventures erected in the wonderland premise.
