We stayed at the Gladstone Hotel, a boutique hotel with 37 rather unique artist-designed rooms. Our room, 304, featured a floor to ceiling furry carpet mural of naked ladies frolicking in a valley. Designed by Allyson Mitchell (who also did the large sculpture we're posing in front of in this post), the room was interesting, to say the least, and surprisingly cozy.

why yes, those are CN Tower nipples
The hotel was hosting a burlesque festival, so on top of some awesome people watching, we got to see a Dr. Sketchy exhibit and a collection of bedazzled bras. Toronto's Dr. Sketchy looks like it's about a million times more fun than the Ottawa version, but that's probably the case for most things.
