A fab hotel in the fashion an exquisite European small hotel. What care has been taken! Made to feel at home form the instant we arrived, we wanted to make it home -- for a while at least. Simply marvelous in the finest of details from duvet to heated bathroom floors to lighting that is of remarkable design. The food... More

A stellar boutique hotel with just four rooms -- ours was quite large -- with lovely decor and a bar just outside the door with a variety of treats including free espresso and continental served in the morning. Travelling on business, I had work to do on the road and the young woman at reception assisted me with printing and... More

Before I even had my first stay I knew this was where I wanted my small intimate Gothic Wedding. Everything was like a Fairy tale. My Wedding planner Sonia did not miss a beat. Elizabeth's arrangements of flowers were perfect, along with Gothic pillars for candles. The food, drink and cake was amazing. My makeup artist was the best. I... More

This has got to be not only the best boutique hotel in Toronto, but the best hotel as well! The service was excellent from the moment I walked in the door. Friendly faces greeted my, and even though I arrived early, made me comfortable in their posh cafe and, when it was time to check-in, they had my bags waiting... More

Having carefully typed the coordinates into my GPS , I was very suprised when the GPS announced "you have arrived at your destination" since I could not see the Ivy anywhere! I rang the hotel and they laughed saying that I was only 10 metres away..... indeed the hotel entrance is VERY discreet! Virtually invisible! I was howevr very reassured... More

I booked a night at The Ivy at Verity for our three year anniversary and was very excited to stay given the wonderful reviews I've seen. We had previously stayed at the Ritz for special occasions but we were looking for something smaller and more intimate. Unfortunately, I was called about 2 weeks before our reservation and was told that... More

Beautiful room with a spa-like bathroom, a little balcony and a super nice host. It was a little hard to find at first - just look for the Verity sign. Onsite spa for women only. The neighborhood seemed a bit grim so this was like an oasis. We used Uber to get around!

I had the chance to stay here during one of my trip to Toronto. A very nice and classy hotel. The service quality is excellent, the room warm, beautiful and the staff very friendly. I definitely recommend it.

I've been staying in Marriotts, Hiltons and Holiday Inns for over 4 years with work, but it's only by coming to The Ivy that I'm reminded how good a hotel experience you can have if you go to the boutique places. The first thing is even though this is effectively 'an old boys club for women', my wife booked it... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with a strong student influence from the Ryerson University Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities, with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of vintage cinemas, and a healthy nightlife centered on the area's Distillery District bar and clubs near the East End, it's both an easygoing daytime spot and a popular party place after sunset. It also features some of Toronto's best outdoor landmarks, including Yonge-Dundas Square and the Nathan Phillips Square: perfect for a concert, a skate, or a relaxing sit-down.
