Two friends and I stayed at The Gladstone for one night prior to checking into an apartment whilst visiting Toronto for a friends wedding. The hotel staff were very accomodating during the booking process (emailing from UK) and offered a pull out bed as an addition to the double room to sleep the three of us. We opted for one...

We have stayed at The Drake and here. I prefer The Drake, but still really liked the Gladstone. Both have very tiny rooms but somehow manage to make it work. I felt the rooms at The Drake were more smartly designed, and I really liked the industrial feel. The shower at the Gladstone was very very small. The cafe at...

I stayed at The Gladstone for 3 nights at the start of a business trip to Canada. I like the artsy Queen West area (beware - hipsters everywhere) and have stayed at The Drake several times before, but there was no availability this time round so ended up booking the Gladstone. It was a good move. This area's great -...

Had a wonderful stay. The rooms were all fun and funky. The complimentary coffee and tea in the morning was great. The Berry Bowl in the Cafe was delicious (and so were the fennel sausages). Most of all, the staff were friendly and helpful (Kelvin is fantastic at the front desk).

I had a night to spend in Toronto while I was in the area for a friend's wedding, so I went online searching for a place to stay. I didn't want to board up in a cookie cutter hotel, I wanted a bit of an experience.. and I got one. When I went to the site and found that each...

The Gladstone Hotel was recommended to me by a number of colleagues who all stay here as part of a large business trip. It surpassed any expectations I had! Where to start?! We had to ship a large amount of freight from overseas to the Gladstone, no problem it was all waiting in our rooms for us arriving. We also...

We snuck to this boutique hotel for a quick couples getaway and loved it. The charm, art on every floor and uniquely designed rooms makes this place stand out against the sterile hotel environments. Love the character, charm and that the staff are always on hand to offer a smile, a helping hand or share some stories about the area...

Stayed here for one night in the 'red room'. Loved the art work scattered throughout the hotel. Staff were friendly and helpful. The streetcars rumbling along Queen street all night did disturb my sleep but fortunately the climate control system is quite loud and so helped to drown out most of the street noise. Toiletries were good quality and the...

We loved this hotel! My husband and jetted off to Toronto after a week of festivities for a relative's wedding in Michigan. The Gladstone is in a gentrifying area of Queens Street in Toronto. The hotel boasts artistically designed rooms, an art gallery on every floor and a cool, hip, funky vibe. It delivered on all counts. Here is what...

We spent the night recently after a wine tasting event. The hotel is really fun, nicely updated, funky decorations and friendly people. The 1907 cable elevator was a blast. The hotel's Café is a great place for a drink and a bite to eat.

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.
