Start Your Urban Adventure
Welcome to the Gladstone Hotel, a boutique art hotel steeped in art + history. Harking back to the days where the hotel catered to the crowds of the trans-Canada railway through to today where the hotel exists at the centre of the art and culture district of West Queen West.
Just as each of our 37 artist-designed rooms are different, so is each and every day spent with us. Follow us as we provide you with the base ideas for how to spend your days and nights, whether you’re looking to immerse yourself in the city, or you’re just seeking a relaxing break away from your hectic schedule.
Whether it’s 8am, or 12pm, you’re up! As you wipe the sleep from your eyes contemplate your next move. Coffee? Duh. Grab some freshly brewed organic coffee right outside your hotel room door or in our Cafe and enjoy it in bed or while perusing our art galleries!
Sit back and ponder existence while ignoring the grumbles coming from your tummy. When they cannot be ignored anymore, check out our Breakfast Menu!
When you realize we have all-day breakfast options available (weekdays) and serve brunch until 4pm on weekends you can go for one more lay down in Toronto’s comfiest beds.
On your way downstairs, check out some of the art on one of our 3 floors of Art Gallery space (Pssssst – did you know we host over 40 exhibitions a year?).
As you descend to the main floor, you’ll notice the enticing aroma of coffee and breakfast or lunch being served, followed by the content smiles on peoples faces having experienced our Harissa Fried Rice Bowl (pictured below) or Pok Pok Chicken Banh Mi.
Once you’ve satisfied your cravings, check out your copy of Bob Blumer’s ‘Gastronaut’s Guide to the Neighbourhood’ and plan your food adventures for the day. Or, wonder the bountiful independent boutiques and art galleries lining the West Queen West and Parkdale neighbourhoods!
We have some of the sweetest rides in Toronto! Our bicycles are first come first served so sign them out early! Cycling is one of the easiest ways to explore the city. There are bike paths all around!
Once you’ve spent your day exploring all West Queen West has to offer, head back to our Cafe or Melody Bar for dinner, cocktails and evening entertainment!
Check our upcoming events to see what adventures you can get up to that evening. If you’re here on a Tuesday through Saturday, check our our regular programming that features Music Bingo (Wed), Live Music (Thurs – Sat) and Karaoke (Fri & Sat).
