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
