The Broadview Hotel

An east end approach to weddings.

Meet the events team from The Broadview Hotel at The Wedding Co. Market and start planning your urban, east end wedding!

We asked marking director, Erin Connor a few questions about this recently restored Toronto wedding venue…
…here is what she told us.

1. Describe the hotel.
Located in the heart of Riverside at the corner of Queen St. E. and Broadview Ave., The Broadview Hotel is a 58 room boutique hotel, The Civic restaurant, lobby Café + Bar and Rooftop restaurant and bar. The Romanesque Revival-style building constructed in 1891 is a heritage property, as designated by the City of Toronto. Cleverly reimagined as a charismatic gathering spot, each space is infused with the spirit of the east end: it’s a place where international travellers relax alongside local residents. Drawing from The Broadview’s iconic façade, visitors and community members will enjoy a uniquely crafted hospitality experience.

2. What are the different rooms available and the capacity?

Lincoln Hall & Terrace

Over 3,000 square feet of characterful venue space plus 1,000 square feet of outdoor terrace space. The exposed brickwork and steel beam construction serve as a memorable backdrop, offering both indoor and outdoor access.

They are refreshingly spacious and some feature outdoor terraces for lounging and relaxing, as well as urban views looking out over the bustle of Queen Street East or Broadview Avenue. Rooms on the hotel’s north façade look peacefully over Riverdale and up the Don Valley River.
