The historic Gladstone Hotel is a design-head's dream Jun 23, 2011
The Gladstone Hotel is the oldest operating hotel in Toronto, built in 1889. It is a grand, landmark structure built in a beautiful, Romanesque Revival style. With all of its history and classic beauty, its rooms are some of the most modern and stylish in the city. Each room was individually designed by a different designer, creating unique themes for each. Take a look at some of the photos included with this review, and you will see examples of these designs. When making reservations for the hotel, you can even reserve a specific room. My room was designed beautifully. My only issue was that the bathroom was very small, and included a very small, narrow shower that was difficult to maneuver in. However, I would still highly recommend the hotel.

The hotel has both a restaurant and bar off either side of its lobby. The focal feature of the lobby is an old, glass, hand-operated elevator. It is operated by one of the lobby/front desk attendants. As beautiful as the elevator is, you may have to wait for someone to assist you with it. Due to this wait, I found myself mostly taking staircase that wraps around the glass elevator shaft. The hotel is only four stories, so this should not be an issue for most.

The location of the hotel is the Queens Street West neighborhood. This is a trendy, of-the-moment neighborhood that reminds me of the Lower East Side and parts of Brooklyn in NYC. The hotel is located a block from the trendy Drake Hotel, and is close by several well-reviewed restaurants and galleries. One possible downside of the hotel to some is that it is a good 20-30 minutes from Downtown. However, there is a street car stop right outside the hotel that takes you directly into Downtown. I had a great stay here, and highly recommend the Gladstone for your next Toronto visit.
