The Broadview Hotel, Toronto

A symbol of the changing fortunes of Toronto's East End, The Broadview Hotel scores high on style and epicurean exploits...

Originally built in 1891, the building that houses the hotly-anticipated The Broadview Hotel is a neighbourhood landmark with a storied past. (A few stripper poles remain in homage to its infamous past.)

Today the much-loved edifice has been fully restored and transformed into a newly-opened, charismatic 58-roomed boutique hotel by international design studio, DesignAgency; who’ve created spaces that blend classic elements with unexpected eclectic accents. The sizeable guest rooms feature bold textiles that nod to the heritage of the property; king-sized beds; a mini bar with goods curated by local coolhunter, Good Neighbour; record players; and a selection of vinyl chosen by Tiny Record Shop.

Another surprise lying behind the The Broadview’s iconic façade is The Civic, a culinary destination—devised by restaurateur Erik Joyal and executive chef John Sinopoli—that serves classic plates with a modern flair in a dining room comprising dark tones and aged surfaces. Up on the impressive and aptly-named rooftop bar, The Rooftop, expect 360-degree views of Toronto whilst diners can dive into sharing plates and craft cocktails; think beef shortribs and fried chicken washed down with a ‘Becky with the Good Hair’ or ‘Canadian Tuxedo’.

Its neighbourhood swiftly becoming a destination in itself, Toronto’s stylish The Broadview Hotel is an example of gentrification-done-good that promises to bring plenty of interest to the city’s once-overlooked East End.
