Toronto Life - - Navigator -

For decades, this grand 126-year-old build­ing at Queen and Broad­view has been hid­den un­der sun­bleached signs for the for­mer Jilly’s strip club. Af­ter a two-year gut job that pre­served the red sand­stone ex­te­rior and com­pletely mod­ern­ized the interior, the ex-flop­house is un­rec­og­niz­able. The 58 guest rooms are a mash-up of var­i­ous eras; fur­nish­ings in­spired by looks from the ’20s through the ’80s have been strung to­gether for an eclec­tic, hip­ster-ap­proved aes­thetic. Atop the well-stocked mini-bars sits a record player with a hand­ful of al­bums cu­rated by the nearby Tiny Record Shop. The rooftop is one of Toronto’s best spots for a sun­set cock­tail.
