The Hermitage – The Gladstone Hotel Toronto, Canada

Quite possibly one of the most arty hotels in the world is the Gladstone Hotel in Toronto, Canada.

Not only are the 37 rooms all designed by individual artists, the 2nd floor is also a dedicated gallery and artists residence. The hotel is owned by the Zeidler family, and managed by Christina Zeidler who is an artist herself. Originally built in 1889, The Galdstone Hotel is the oldest continuously operating hotel in Toronto. It still maintains its historic facade and elements of its historical past, including the restored Victorian elevator which is one of the last hand-operated elevators in Toronto! The artistic renovation undertaken by Zeidler Partnership has breathed new life into the premises, allowing it to embody the creative culture of the area.

This innovative space has become known as Toronto’s favourite Art Hotel and hosts numerous exhibitions throughout the year that showcase the work of local and international artists. This means each visit to the hotel is a unique experience as artists immerse the interiors with their pieces. The creative arts are further celebrated with the hotels live music venue, where anyone can pop in to catch a live performance while enjoying a couple of drinks.
