I have not one complaint about this hotel. It is beautiful, and stunningly decorated. There are only four rooms, with private balconies, and they are clean and luxurious. Incredibly comfortable beds/pillows. Gorgeous bathrooms with Bvlgari shampoos&ody washes. The Verity contains several meeting rooms, a library, and an all-womans' spa (odd, right?!). The staff was very kind, and helpful. We checked in late, our in-room safe didn't work, and they replaced it immediately. Another front desk manager (Michael?) went out of his way to help us find affordable transportation to an out-of-the way concert that we were trying to attend. We had a complimentary continental breakfast, which was delivered to the "honor bar" outside of the guest rooms. (I have never had freshly pressed cranberry juice!!). The George Restaurant, which is, essentially, below the guest rooms (though, we were never disturbed by the diners) is absolutely fabulous!!!!!!
My only complaint is that this hotel is on a rather seedy section of the street. The downtown location is ideal for great restaurants (Origin, Blowfish on Bay, Canoe), and Toronto highlights, it seems out of place. There are several, what appear to be, homeless shelters within a block of the hotel. East Queen Street seemed to have a constant flow of indigent people flowing in, and out, of the McDonalds on the corner. I felt a little uncomfortable walking back each night, and I am from NYC. We never had any issues, but it struck me as odd that this gem of a hotel was in the wrong neighborhood.
