Want to score high on the Romance Richter Scale? The Gladstone is an indulgent, urban experience with a colliding vibe of history and architecture in sexy spaces designed for couples wanting a cozy crash pad with a focus on the finer details of a hotel stay.
Coffee arrives on your doorstep at your requested morning hour, there are gourmet snacks to pillage in the room, ice delivery if need be (and it will be needed for the champagne!). The soaps are hand-milled from Prince Edward County and there is even a shampoo bar. There's an ipod docking station and a stillness to the room that was surprising given the original wood floors and age of the hotel.
Though we wandered down the street to the Drake Hotel Raw Bar for carb coma-inducing mac n'cheese and pumpkin stuffed ravioli, the Gladstone menu card spills over with indulgent choices too. The staff are bang-on with service, smiles and privacy.
As a Toronto resident, I was transported to many places. Quebec City? Chicago? San Francisco?
The rates are phenomenal for the luxury exchange.
There will be a return visit, this has already been determined. Each room is a unique microcosm of design--check it out!
