I'm certainly no Tolkien, but have just rediscovered the joy, sense of fun, and inspiration that wandering can unleash. This lovingly and artfully restored hotel serves as a sanctuary, gallery, stage for artists of all kinds and interests. Great coffee and tea are provided on each floor. Wonderful shops, galleries, restaurants, performance venues abound in the immediate vicinity. Check in... More

I've wanted to stay at the Gladstone since it was first conceived. However, I have plenty of friends and family in Toronto and so I always stay with them. But last month my girlfriend was giving a talk and the university booked us a room at the Gladstone. I'm so glad! We travel a lot and stay in international boutique... More

Beautifully maintained and modernized for pleasure. There's plenty of choices for restaurant and shopping amenities near the Gladstone. The old elevator was a wonderful extra. The rooms are better in person than the photos on the website. When we arrived to Toronto, a local actually commended our choice and we definitely agree. My wife and I will be going to... More

When visiting Toronto for work, I had the pleasure to stay at The Gladstone Hotel. I was in town for two nights and, well, my last name is Gladstone! So, when I learned of the hotel and it's awesome location downtown, it was a no-brainer to book my stay there. When I arrived, I was greeted warmly and was informed... More

It's not everyday that you check into a hotel that seconds as an art gallery. The Gladstone is a boutique hotel nestled in the art district of Toronto. It has beautiful decor which includes art installations everywhere, a cool 100 yo elevator and a pleasant staff. The rooms all have different themes with different types of art installations in them.... More

before checking in I know nothing about this hotel and its location, as I ran into it by looking for an available room anywhere down town Toronto. Upon arrival I realized I had made an excellent choice. The hotel is well designed, offering a relaxing atmosphere as well as easy access to the more crowded places. My room was very... More

The Gladstone Hotel has it all! An amazing landmark building in one of the world's greatest areas (WQW, TO), super friendly staff, every room it's own special character, the amazing hand operated elevator, great food and drinks and a comfortable bed with perfect fresh linen. And I have to mention the amazing art that has you coming back for more!... More

Where do I start? The customer service, the art, the overall vibe of this hotel is really something special. We stayed for 3 nights in the "Offset" room and could not have felt more at ease. The only thing I would warn larger guests is the showers are quite small, but it was survivable for the time we were there.... More

My partner and I had to go to Toronto last minute and desperately needed a break from Guelph. We had a wonderful stroke of luck of connecting with Nettie Brown the Front Desk Manager Extraordinaire! We are fairly high maintenance and were utterly exhausted trying to find something suitable with a view and a kitchenette. We ended up booking into... More

Stayed here in March 2015 in the Teen Dream room. Very comfortable bed, nice quiet room with quirky decorations (which I loved). Room was always nice and warm. Shower is tiny but not a big issue. Spotlessly clean. Food in the bar was nice, had breakfast and lunch. Staff all excellent, extremely friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay here again.
