The Melody Bar has a delightful bartender by the name of Alicia there, very knowledgeable about her cocktails and suggested a great one for me - Paper Plane - not too sweet, not too sour and has a great kick afterwards. Staff are friendly, will answer any question you pose and are very attentive. We were a little concerned knowing... More

Clean, comfortable and full of art! Love this place & highly recommend to any travelers. Staff is very friendly and helpful. The beds are VERY comfortable. Each room is unique, designed by different artists/designers. I have stayed several times and each room was very cool. Check out their website for photos. FOOD AND COCKTAILS are also great.

it was fairly clean and in a cool space, but man were those rooms small. the full sized bed fit pretty much wall to wall and i hope to have a larger coffin than the shower in the bathroom. so tiny! definiately not worth the cost. i think i'd have been more comfortable in a howard johnson.

It's exactly what you'd expect and want in the heart of Toronto's creative community, Queen Street West! If you're usual hotel experience are the national chains, you're in for a big surprise but step out and try this place next time you're in TO. A truly boutique hotel, each of the 37 rooms are individually designed, decorated and furnished by... More

A romantic night away from home, a mere 45 mins street car ride across town. Very neat, tidy, comfortable and relaxing. However this is a bit of an artists dream. Not only is the historic building fully renovated, but has been taken over by the local artist community. Art abounds here on every wall and every room. Each of the... More

From the time we checked in to the time we checked out, the service was top notch. They couldn't be more attentive and helpful. The food was amazing and the venue just can't get better. The building is old and has many imperfections that make it spectacular. The art displays throughout the hotel are stunning along with the living plant... More

This hotel is set apart from all other classic everyday hotels. We stayed here for my 28th birthday, my husband found it and surprised me with a weekend in Toronto. The rooms are decorated beautifully and uniquely, and we had a great experience here. Amazing location and wonderful bar on the main floor. There was a mix up and we... More

We choose the Gladstone for a January birthday getaway. It was perfect in every way. We booked The Racine Room as my husband is using old suitcases to decorate his studio at home so we wanted to check it out. The bed & linens were lovely. We ate dinner in the Cafe... ordering the chickpea salad, steak (which was superb)... More

No room is the same, the whole place is a art gallery with very unique pieces. Good location in the art district easy walk or tram to downtown. Great entertainment and restaurants in walking distance (Duke Hotel).

My then boyfriend (now fiancé) surprised me with a room and dinner at the Gladstone Hotel. We stayed in the Billio room. It is a very romantic and beautifully designed room. The antique furniture held up by old books combined with modern hints and bold colours really had me in awe. It is an art hotel at its finest with... More
