Gladstone Hotel: an arty stay in the heart of Toronto

• 21 Jul, 2009 • Catégorie: Canada, One hotel a day, Romantic

Located in the trendy Queen Street West, the Gladstone hotel has truly become a “cultural guardian” dedicated to contemporary art amateurs. This hippy chic old Victorian building attracts visitors in the area who are vanguard and eclectic design amateurs. Make this hotel a display for the local and creative culture that is the ambition of owner Cristina Zeidler.

Victorian moulded windows seem to be the only survivors of the past in his decor entirely dedicated to modern art. The old-fashioned main staircase is leading to small cocoons combining both funky and pure chic styles. The 317 room will delight the most curious people with mallow and purple colors and great patterns, an honor made to the king of peacocks. For lovers in search for a warmer atmosphere, go for the 415 room and its High Park atmosphere, with nostalgic tinted photos of the fall charms of Canada.

Room 415

Gourmands and gourmets, prepare your forks! Chef Marc Breton will provide your plates with the richness of Canadian soil in the childlike atmosphere of the Ballroom Café. On Saturday nights, join Toronto’s select student group for some fun time at the karaoke. In this vestige of the 30’s, wood-paneled walls and alabaster lamps perfectly fit with classicism.

Rates: from 139€ for an artist designed room 338€ for a suite.
