“My new favourite hotel in Toronto”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

It's official--The Ivy at Verity is now my new favourite hotel in all of Toronto. From the moment I was greeted at the front door to the morning I left I felt incredibly welcomed and spoiled. The rooms are beautifully decorated and luxurious, I appreciated the self serve open bar set-up outside my door and can't even describe how amazing my meal at the George restaurant was. Incredible experience. I would (and will) highly recommend this hotel to anyone travelling to Toronto from now on. Amazing accommodations.

Room Tip: Room 4 is in the corner and beautifully decorated.

The Ivy isn´t so much a classical hotel. It´s a business club with serveral nice meeting lounges, a lady fitness studio, a spa and perhaps the best restaurant "George" I have ever eaten at. We were told - also there was no one, when we we stayed - that the Ivy is a hot spot for weddings in Toronto. And I can understand this.

The rooms - they only have four, so feel yourself luck if you get one - are big and lovely decorated, with over king size beds which might be the most comfortable I ever had sleeped in, a big bath - seperated shower and closet - with Bulgari toiletries and several different bathing salts available for disposal in the big bathing tube.

The breakfast - croissant, cake, fresh fruit and juice, coffee or tea, everything excellent - was offered on tray outside the room on an old french pastries table and had to be carried in your room. We ate it on our balcony with view to the patio. Great start of the day. Coffee (Nespresso) and softdrinks were complimentary the whole day.

The hotel itself is very central, probably 10 min walk to Eaton Center with a subway station just around the corner and big public parking space on the other side of the street.

So go there, even if you don´t want to mary.

Room Tip: Room 1 we had was lovely. But I think you can not do anything wrong here.

We had an excellent time here. The massage package with the room for two can be used by one person for the full hour by a RMT therapist. The breakfast consisted of coffee, a choice of freshly squeezed juice, pastry's, fresh fruit offered on a tray outside of your room. They have a small area to sit or you can bring your tray to your room.
The hallways are so confusing of how to get to your room or even how to get to the reception area, although they were very accommodating to help you find your way. It was a nice treat with the spa downstairs for the following day.
Very close to the Eaton Centre. A great part of the city. It truly was a welcomed treat.

Stayed in room #4 for one night. Concierge was so accommodating- helped with parking and showing us all the ammenities.
The room was spacious and beautiful. Large patio. Complimentary bath salt bar over the spa tub, separate stand up shower and toilet rooms.
The hotel also had a bar for guests in a small sitting area outside the room. It worked based on the honesty system- each drink you had you recorded and were charged 6$/alcoholic beverage at the end of your stay. They had wine, beer, and all sorts of hard liquor + mix.
There was a complimentary continental breakfast waiting on a table outside your room starting at 715- and when you were ready you called the concierge to bring a pot of fresh coffee.
Overall lovely, romantic spot. We also purchased the 4 course tasting menu at George which was amazing. Will return!

I wouldn't have even known this was their unless we were staying there as part of a wedding party, but it was truly a special little oasis in the city. The room was massive by inner city standards. There was a king size bed, little sitting are for reading and another one with a little table for eating/drinks. There was also a large patio with a table overlooking a quiet courtyard. Never once did it sound like we were in a city. The bathroom was also huge and had a great assortment of quality soaps including 3 different scents of bath salts. Room included a continental breakfast. There also was an open area outside the room with complimentary soft drinks and cocktails for fee. Would highly recommend this quiet, gem in the city.

I am amazed by just how relaxing one night in the city actually was.

But the bed is lovely. And the aqua wallpaper in #3 is soothing. And the design, in general, is excellent. And the bathroom is exquisite (with great soaps and the like). And they have this nice internal lobby where there's an honour bar and a Nespresso machine, which is actually where we enjoyed our dessert from George.

I would've loved to stay for longer (though, well, it's not exactly a cheap stay), and I would've enjoyed the possibility of a massage. I kind of wish I could stay here more often. Shame it's not dog-friendly, and shame that the parking isn't included. But these are definitely minor.

I absolutely love the Ivy Hotel and have stayed there several times. It is a perfect retreat for a romantic get away with your partner and there are several packages available which include dinner at the hotel's George Restaurant. I have also used the Ivy when having a girls' day with my sister, niece and mom at the adjacent Sweetgrass Spa and an evening out so the room was nice to come back to. In addition, I have used the Ivy for business purposes if I book a corporate dinner at George or have meetings downtown the next day, the Ivy is conveniently situated in the downtown core. The 4 room boutique hotel is luxurious and cozy with a unique ambience. The staff and service is attentive. I am already looking forward to my next stay.

Room Tip: All 4 rooms are unique and you will enjoy any one of them.
