I HEART The Gladstone Hotel

By Éléonore on 07/21/12 | Toronto | ,



We just spent a few days at the Gladstone in Toronto, and rarely have we been so in <3 with a hotel. Each room is designed by a local artist, and we got there to find out we’d be sleeping in the two suites, the Best suite, and the even better Tower Suite, a homey two-story apartment with a 360-view of the city. Location is the best, at the end of trending Queen West and right next to up and coming Parkdale. But we didn’t really need to go out as it was Burger Night ($5 bacon cheese burgers) at the Melody bar, and floor 3 and 4 hosted a great exhibition called That’s So Gay. No wonder why locals love that 1889 treasure so much.

Nous venons de passer quelques jours au Gladstone à Toronto, et nous avons rarement été aussi <3 d’un hotel. Chaque chambre y est imaginée par un artiste local, et nous avons appris à notre arrivée que nous séjournerions dans les deux suites de l’hotel, la Best Suite et l’encore meilleure Tower Suite, un accueillant petit duplex avec une vue de la ville à 360 degrés. L’emplacement est idéal, entre le quartier à la coule de Queen West et celui montant de Parkdale. Mais nous n’avions pas vraiment besoin de sortir de l’hotel puisque c’était Burger Night au Melody Bar (5$ le Bacon Cheeseburger), et qu’une super expo, That’s So Gay, occupait les 3e et 4e étages. Pas étonnant que les locaux chérissent autant ce trésor de 1889. (photos Mehdi SefriouiRead more
