The cherry on top of hotelier Christina Zeidler 's Gladstone Hotel reno is her sky-scraping tower suite. The decor of its party-perfect lounge is still being tweaked, but the turret bedroom has us craving a stay. From the platform bed you can see 360 degrees of T.O.'s patchwork west-end landscape (suburb-style townhouses to the south; train tracks snaking from the Junction to the lake). Check in often to see how Zeidler's creative vision (and Parkdale) evolves. $375/night, 1214 Queen West, 416-531-4635, www.gladstonehotel.com.
