I've stayed at the Gladstone twice, in different rooms, and I've loved both experiences. I love that you can pick your own room while booking online, and it's a ton of fun to look through all the options to choose which one you want. The rooms are small, but they have everything I'd need for a couple of days. The...

What an experience! I was lucky enough to spend a weekend at the Gladstone in May with my boyfriend. Originally, we only had the Friday night booked for a concert and were going to go home afterwards. When plans changed and we wanted to stay the Saturday night as well, the staff was amazing and very accommodating. We had to...

Gladstone is a kind of very special place with a unique atmosphere, and located in an amazing red brick old building. There is art pieces everywhere. Rooms are rather tiny but very nicely designed by artists. Beds and sheets are excellent. Shower is probably the smallest shower cabin in the world - but it's ok. The only real problem of...

Absolutely fabulous; Toronto’s oldest continuously-run hotel is a must-visit. It’s a well-known feature of this hotel that each room is entirely individual; each one designed by a different artist or designer. I stayed in two rooms: #315 “The Today Room”, and #415 “Snapshot”. Neither room was ‘large’ by today’s average standards, of course, but every effort has been made here...

This place is GREAT. I wouldn't recommend it for families or people looking to go to bed early, but as a solo traveller I wish I could stay forever. Full of interesting art and people, beautiful rooms, friendly and very accommodating staff, all in a wonderful, walkable neighbourhood. It was a tad noisy due to the thin walls and hardwood...

The Melody Bar has a delightful bartender by the name of Alicia there, very knowledgeable about her cocktails and suggested a great one for me - Paper Plane - not too sweet, not too sour and has a great kick afterwards. Staff are friendly, will answer any question you pose and are very attentive. We were a little concerned knowing...

Clean, comfortable and full of art! Love this place & highly recommend to any travelers. Staff is very friendly and helpful. The beds are VERY comfortable. Each room is unique, designed by different artists/designers. I have stayed several times and each room was very cool. Check out their website for photos. FOOD AND COCKTAILS are also great.

it was fairly clean and in a cool space, but man were those rooms small. the full sized bed fit pretty much wall to wall and i hope to have a larger coffin than the shower in the bathroom. so tiny! definiately not worth the cost. i think i'd have been more comfortable in a howard johnson.

It's exactly what you'd expect and want in the heart of Toronto's creative community, Queen Street West! If you're usual hotel experience are the national chains, you're in for a big surprise but step out and try this place next time you're in TO. A truly boutique hotel, each of the 37 rooms are individually designed, decorated and furnished by...

A romantic night away from home, a mere 45 mins street car ride across town. Very neat, tidy, comfortable and relaxing. However this is a bit of an artists dream. Not only is the historic building fully renovated, but has been taken over by the local artist community. Art abounds here on every wall and every room. Each of the...

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.
