I had a stay-cation at the Gladstone Hotel in February and I've been back multiple times since then for events, dinner and even to work by myself in the cafe! Walking into the Gladstone instantly makes me feel cooler than I have any right to be - there is so many art and design features to enjoy (the Cowboy elevator!...

Love the Gladstone - great food and superior service no matter when you're there. If that's not enough it feels like you're staying in a supremely cool art gallery, there's always something new to hear, see or do there. Highly recommend!

I've come to the Gladstone dozens of times for brunch, drinks and karaoke. But was gifted a 2 night stay as a birthday present from my husband (some time away from my kids!!). The room was perfect - super cool decor and design. The service was so friendly and accommodating and the coffee outside the room in the morning was...

The Gladstone is a very artsy hotel, which may not appeal to everyone, but I loved it! The exhibitions are scattered around the hotel and each rooms is designed uniquely. Very beautiful! The room we stayed in was quite small and due to location there is some noise form traffic, but it's nothing that will keep you up at night....

The artist exhibition gallery style hotel. Great location. Love the old fashion 100 year old elevator! Spotted a mural by Shepard Fairey on the back wall! Go to the North of Brooklyn pizza place close by for a slice of heaven!

Perfectly sufficient hotel. Room design was a bit much and could have been cleaner. No issues with service in cafe or with front desk. We visited this hotel for a wedding so our experience might vary compared to other guests. Wish the location of paid parking was communicated better prior to checkin to avoid having to pull over on the...

We stayed only one night, to be economical for our trip to TO (which was 4 nights). It was worth it to stay one night, though we wished we had the hindsight to stay a second night to better enjoy and explore the surrounding neighborhood.

So is this a boutique hotel? If so, I am a fan. It is a haven for art and a tribute to hotels of days past. So many beautiful appointments just too many to mention. An ongoing Art Galley on every floor. WOW. The room was compact comfortable and modern. My view was the classic TO skyline complete with the...

Front desk staff friendly and the building is lovely with regular art exhibits. Bar is not great value and overpriced - would recommend instead to visit the several eateries/bars around in the Queen West area. Rooms, depending on the one you get, are interesting as each is designed by a specific artist. Bring earplugs at it can get noisy and...

The beautiful Gladstone hotel offers a true escape from the cookie cutter hotel experience -- each room is uniquely decorated -- delightful and comfortable. Although the rooms are small, the only time that the room felt lacking was in the shower -- if you are larger or taller than average you might find the very small shower with its rather...

Staying in West End

Neighbourhood Profile
West End
The go-to area for new business start-ups, the spry and creative persona of the West End thrives along its streets. Its independent boutiques, galleries, restaurants, and shops offer brands that can't be found elsewhere. Buildings with ground floor consumer spaces sport up-top artist's lofts, and the West End attracts artists, designers, and fashion industry professionals to its living quarters. It is in the cross-hairs of gentrification, but still resisting it with ironic relish. Hot deals can still be found here on furniture and knick-knacks,. Its call to culinary glory is in its well-priced homemade Polish food, hosting Toronto's go-to spots for hot pierogis and cold borscht. High Park, the largest green space in the city, is a place for dreamers and poets to wander and rest, not to mention a number of energetic actors staging outdoor plays in the summertime.
