With 37 artist-designed rooms, The Gladstone Hotel invites guests to enter the whimsical dream worlds of Canadian and international visionaries. Combining contemporary decor with rich historical details, Toronto’s oldest hotel and former flophouse has transformed into one of the city’s hippest boutique hotels. Since 2003, the Gladstone has contributed to the gentrification of West Queen West while also supporting Toronto’s burgeoning arts community. For a truly unique travel experience, guests can stay in one of themed rooms such as the Surreal Gourmet room, which serves up kitschy food-inspired touches, or the Canadiana room outfitted with Canadian themed design details.
