Gladstone Hotel changing ownership - will cultural commitments remain the same?

Gladstone Hotel has been purchased by two developers, Streetcar Developments and Dream Unlimited. The Gladstone hotel was built in 1889 and is Toronto’s oldest continually operating hotel. The beloved boutique art hotel, located between Parkdale and Queen West neighbourhoods, will switch owners later this month on March 31. The new buyers are behind the renovation of The Broadview Hotel, kilometres away on the east end of the city.

We’ve got news! ⤵️ - Built in 1889, The Gladstone Hotel is Toronto’s oldest continually operating hotel. It has had many chapters in its long history and we are excited to now announce another chapter in our history. After 17 years Christina Zeidler is stepping away from leading the Gladstone. She looked far and wide to find someone who would not only take on the building but also all of our staff, clients and cultural commitments. Someone who was aspirational about learning from our team and going deeper into their support of the arts in Toronto. - We are thrilled to announce that the team behind the @broadviewhotel has purchased the Gladstone! The Gladstone will continue to be its own separate entity but be joined spiritually with its “sister” building in the east end of Queen Street, creating a culture and character-rich boutique hotel portfolio here in Toronto. This transition is planned to take effect on March 31, 2020. - The decision to sell the Hotel is a personal one. Creative Director and Business owner Christina Zeidler has plans to now move on to other creative projects. - We are excited for a bright future for the Hotel with the vision to carry on the legacy of the Gladstone Hotel. Someone who understands the historic significance but also its cultural significance. It took a long time to build the culture around the Gladstone. The commitment to continue to grow this vision is a dream come true. It is the best possible scenario, not just for the building but for the staff and patrons who love this property and the culture around it. Please continue to support our sweet Hotel, and the people who make it so wonderful ❤️ - #gladstonehotel

Christina Zeidler has been leading the Gladstone for the last 17 years but Zeidler is confident in her choice of new owners. She believes they can lead the staff, chefs and maintain the cultural commitments Gladstone has made to the community. Zeidler believes the new buyers fully understand the historical and cultural significance of the building. The decision to sell was personal according to a post shared on the hotels instagram page. Christina Zeidler plans to move onto other creative projects.

It will be interesting to see what this new ownership means for the Gladstone Hotel -- particularly the unique dining experiences they currently have. The hotel has phenomenal seasonal menus with Executive Chef Brandi Greenwood leading the team. They are also known for their endlessly entertaining and lively drag brunches. 

Gladstone Hotel

Toronto’s art culture can be found in every aspect of this historic hotel. It took a long time to foster this inclusive and diverse creative environment and the city looks forward to seeing how it continues with the new ownership. We sure know we cannot do without Gladstone’s drag brunches and the innovative ever-changing menus. The Gladstone is a huge part of Toronto food and art culture and we hope their legacy continues.
