What We Love

  • On-site galleries feature monthly exhibits and events, so the hotel is a happening spot, giving guests an insider’s edge and a sense of community you won’t get at a chain
  • Every guestroom is designed by one of Toronto’s most talented artists
  • The provided “I want Joe” doorknocker ensures a fresh-brewed cup at your door when you wake
  • Dining options include Gladstone Café and Melody Bar, which have separate menus, hours and distinct vibes
  • Choice location on Queen Street near Ossington Avenue, on which there are bars, restaurants, galleries and great shopping
  • Karaoke in the Melody Bar every Friday and Saturday night is legendary
  • Pharmacopia apothecary-style natural bath products in every room
  • READ MORE: 72 Hours in Ontario

What To Know

  • No fitness area or swimming pool on-site, but the nearby 99 Sudbury Gym offers Gladstone guests free passes
  • Like many up-and-coming neighborhoods, this one is still somewhat gritty; the hotel, however, is spotless
  • The hotel isn’t techy: free WiFi, yes, massive flat-screen TVs, no (although there are small TVs).
  • Guestrooms are small, with the exception of the two suites; basic rooms fit a bed, a small desk and a bathroom with shower — and lots of art
  • The hotel was renovated in 2004-2005

Fun place to stay
Reviewed 3 days ago

Overall we really liked the Gladstone. It has a good vibe it is an interesting building
We enjoyed the art and music. If I were to return I would definitely choose a bigger
Room. The classic is good for one night without much baggage.
I had issues with the temperature but this applies to Canada in general - duvets on the bed the middle of summer?! Why does a/c have to be so cold. It doesn't make sense.
We enjoyed the location but didn't realise it is quite so far from downtown. The car
Was useful.

Refreshingly different
Reviewed 3 days ago

We often visit TO for Argos games as our son is a player. We usually choose where we stay based on 3 star and price so we bounce around a lot. Last stay we found the Gladstone, knowing nothing about the Hotel. From the antique elevator (looks like a bird cage) to the Artistically designed rooms, this old Hotel was fascinating. The rooms are spotless and the staff is accommodating. As a bonus, the restaurant, in keeping with the hotel theme, has an artisan menu with creative dishes and fresh everything.
A big find. Booked the next 7 home games!

So Glad We Stayed at Gladstone

From the ride up to your room in the beautiful vintage elevator to the stay in your crisply made bed, this place screams ‘I’m all about being different!’ The staff is super helpful and accommodating. You don’t even have to leave to have a good time. Lounge attached, fun activities and art on every floor!

Charming 1800's hotel
Reviewed 5 days ago

Fun older property with themed rooms. Each room was assigned to a different artist to decorate, and each has its charm. Don't expect a new Holiday Inn here. Well worth a visit though. You have to ring the bell to get staff to transport you on the elevator. There's a restaurant/coffee shop on premises with a great breakfast & complimentary cocktail. Staff is professional & accommodating. Subway station nearby & easy location to walk around the city.

Great time at Gladstone
Reviewed 6 days ago

We stayed at the Gladstone for two nights and had a great time.It is an older hotel updated with themed rooms. We had the Twight theme room and it was very comfortable. Played music bingo in the bar, enjoyed breakfast and had one of their original cocktails. Very helpful and friendly staff! Rob the elevator operator always had a smile.
