The Arlington Hotel was once located at 326-328 King St W (at John St on the northwest corner) in the Entertainment District/Wellington Place neighbourhoods of Toronto.
Built in 1889, the airy hotel was designed by architect John A Radford. The Arlington accommodated 200 guests, and amenities included a dining room, an elegant bar, a reading room, offices and a smoking room. An ad for the hotel dated 1895 said, “it is removed from the noise of the heart of the city.” From 1919 until 1920, the building became a 160-bed hostel organized by the Knights of Columbus for those that fought in World War I. The Toronto City Directory has the hotel last recorded in 1932.
The site of the former hotel was later a parking lot and Farb’s Car Wash. Today, the block is home to TIFF Bell Lightbox and condo residences.
