The Broadview Hotel is nearly ready for its reveal.
The 125-year-old landmark, which used to be Jilly’s Stripclub, is now looking better than ever.
The hotel, which is located in the heart of Riverside at the corner of Queen Street East and Broadview Avenue, is slated to open in June. But before you check it out yourself, we thought we would give you an insider’s tour with renderings from Norm Li.
When you enter the hotel you’re greeted by a warm and inviting interior. One of the unique details of this lobby is the art installation surrounding the brass elevators, which is made from the old fire escapes that were once located outside of the building.
Just past the reception desk is the hotel’s lobby cafe and bar. With its hardwood floors, beams, and brick walls, it has a casual feel. But the bar’s sleek design gives it that modern touch.
On the second floor, guests will find the Lincoln Hall and Terrace, which is the hotel’s event venue. This is a completely open space that can accommodate events for up to 240 guests.
Step outside and you’ll be on the 1,000 square-foot terrace overlooking Queen Street East.
One of the best highlights of the hotel is on the seventh floor where the rooftop bar and terrace are located. The 100-seat indoor bar is a contemporary space with glass walls and a pyramid skylight, which offers some of the best views of the city.
The private dining space is tucked into the hotel’s iconic tower. This space is filled with vintage chandeliers, exposed brick and a vaulted ceiling which will make guests feel like they have been swept away into a place from the past.
If you’re tempted to have a stay at the Broadview bookings can now be made for September 2017.
With its elegant features, rooftop entertainment space, and sleek new design, this space will soon to be a new gem in the city.
