Reviewed yesterday NEW

Location was convenient, staff were friendly, engaging and helpful. Rooms were small with no place to work (also internet did not allow for VPN access). Room was very noisy and was surprised that the windows were not soundproof. Pillows were rough and didn't help my sleep

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 15 July 2016 via mobile

This hotel is not just a place to lay your head, it's a unique experience on it's own to add to any trip. My best friend and I were having a nostalgic getaway by seeing Duran Duran in concert at the Molson Canadian Amphitheatre, which is easy to get to from here on one bus with a bit of walking....

Loved the elevator - a beautifully functioning machine. Trading Post room very nifty. Spotted it on line. Lively view from window. Enjoyed the art display. Breakfast excellent. Tip - Pillows are very fat - I would bring my own pillow next time.

Cozied up at the Gladstone while attending a concert at the Drake Hotel. Staff is sweet and friendly, building is fascinating, bed is cozy and soft. Does a great job of being cute and quirky. You are going to want those free earplugs; Queen St is a party street-but you can't beat the people-watching!

This hotel is so cozy and inviting. The rooms are quaint and beautifully decorated. The staff couldn't do enough to make our stay the best possible. A big shout out to Heather at the front desk. Having freshly brewed coffee outside our room in the morning was a nice touch. The manually operated elevator was so unique and memorable! Just...

I did not like this hotel, from what it showed on the website to what was actually there were totally different. From the pictures on the website this looked like a very nice hotel but when we got there it was the total opposite of what we expected and we decided not to stay for the 3 nights. I would...

We stayed in the Gladstone principally due to its West Queen West location and its "stylish" aesthetic. We were disappointed on neither. At WQW and Dufferin, the hotel is within a short walking distance of Ossington and the rest of the WQW shopping. Super friendly check-in and check-out, as well as helpful service when our safe was not working. The...

A colourful art-filled space on Queen St. West, the Gladstone's generous architecture is welcoming. There are lots of nice touches in the rooms, from the decor to magazines. The hotel cafe is a highlight, with big arched windows, funky light fixtures and fresh tasty food.

Staying in West End

Neighbourhood Profile
West End
The go-to area for new business start-ups, the spry and creative persona of the West End thrives along its streets. Its independent boutiques, galleries, restaurants, and shops offer brands that can't be found elsewhere. Buildings with ground floor consumer spaces sport up-top artist's lofts, and the West End attracts artists, designers, and fashion industry professionals to its living quarters. It is in the cross-hairs of gentrification, but still resisting it with ironic relish. Hot deals can still be found here on furniture and knick-knacks,. Its call to culinary glory is in its well-priced homemade Polish food, hosting Toronto's go-to spots for hot pierogis and cold borscht. High Park, the largest green space in the city, is a place for dreamers and poets to wander and rest, not to mention a number of energetic actors staging outdoor plays in the summertime.
