Loved our time at the Gladestone. Friendly staff, nice location and really interesting ambiance. We felt very relaxed and comfortable there. The hotel also houses 2 great restaurants that we found both full of good nightlife (but not too crazy) and YUMMY locally sourced healthy food. We were in heaven.
A couple small downsides--our room was right on the front of the hotel (facing Queen St.) and it was LOUD. They were kind enough to provide ear plugs (who knew those worked so well?!), but if I had it to do over, I'd call and ask for a rear-facing room. Also, the room we were in (309) was very comfy, but had sharp corners on the edges of the bed frame. We both came home with several scuffs on our shins from cutting the corner too sharply in that compact room.More
