The Beverley Hotel catches heat over bathroom artwork

Two years after the Beverley Hotel made a red-hot debut on Queen West, reaching for the Drake, Thompson and Gladstone's respective crowns, things appear to have cooled off. The kitchen hasn't been the same since former chef Eric Wood left last year - but it looks like their art collection is keeping people talking, for better or for worse.

Earlier in April, patron Ritu Bhasin tweeted out photos of the artwork in the hotel's ladies' room - a photo series of female dolls in various compromising positions with male dolls, including one with its underwear pulled down while a male doll holds a camera. (Didn't we all love playing "Terry Richardson" as kids?)

When Bhasin demanded the removal of the images, hotel representatives replied a week later to laugh the complaint off. (Literally - their response on Twitter was "haha lol".) Regardless of the actual artistic merit of the pieces, you gotta admit - that's no way to get repeat patrons.


Should the Beverley Hotel pull these images? Let us know in the comments.
