In the late 1800s, Queen West Toronto was the area around the Canadian Pacific Railway Hub on the outskirts of the Village of Parkdale, beyond Toronto’s city limits. The Drake Hotel, which opened in 1890 followed shortly thereafter by the Gladstone Hotel, are two of the oldest landmarks in this charming working class neighbourhood that have been dramatically restored and refurbished. Today both hotels are prominent pillars in the revitalized West Queen West neighbourhood.
