“Beautiful”
Reviewed April 29, 2014

We spend one night at the Ivy as part of a longer babymoon and had a wonderful time here. The hotel is absolutely beautifully furnished and decorated, extremely clean, the staff was lovely and everything from the handmade bathsalts to the bedding was very high quality. Soft drinks were free around the clock, alcoholic beverages on an honor base (self-serve) and the breakfast (pastries, juice, fresh fruit) was lovely too. The location is central, but it was very quiet, since the rooms are towards the backyard.
We also tried out the restaurant on the first floor and it was excellent and fun. They have plenty of vegetarian options.
I didn't use the (women-only) spa, but one of the staff was kind enough to give me a tour. Again, it was beautiful. There's not only a small pool, makeup counter and different spa services, there is also a flower shop! Men can have massages at the room.
We have travelled a lot, also in top hotels, and this is definitely in our top 3!

Room Tip: We stayed at room no. 1, which was absolutely lovely.

I almost hate to write how excited I was to discover this boutique hotel…I will never be able to snag a room once it is discovered….
The staff (George) is excellent, rooms large and luxurious, all first class. The added amenities of the spa facilities is just icing on the cake. Superb!

We stayed at the Ivy for the weekend of our wedding. I had a few services at the Sweetgrass Spa and We had an amazing dinner at George the night before and then prep rooms and photos on the grounds on the day of. The rooms are stunning and the staff was spectacular and helped make the weekend everything one could hope for! We'll definitely be coming back on anniversaries to come!

We actually found this place through Hotels.com, it had very high ratings which were confirmed on Trip Adviser. The place is amazing, we would absolutely stay there again. The room was incredible, I had ordered flowers from their in-house florist for the room, they were in room at check-in, my wife LOVED them! Right colours and had opened up to where we were able to enjoy them during our stay. We cannot say enough about the bed, was the BEST we have ever slept in, and we have a Tempurpedic. Bathroom was a dream room, large tub, oversize shower and heated floors. What we loved most, this was a Romantic getaway for us, we felt like we were the only ones in the place. The only way we knew there were other guests was by the 3 other breakfast trays on the table waiting to be picked up in the morning. You cannot beat the location, 2 blocks from Eaton's Centre and the Subway, a quick 10 minute walk to the St. Lawrence Market. We had only minor issues, when we checked in I was handed back my driver's license but not my credit card. Spent the morning worrying if I had lost it, only to find out that it was at reception. They apologized and said they did not want to disturb us with a call, HELLO call, slip a note under the door, something! One review mentions vacuuming in the middle of the night, we heard that too, at about midnight right above our room, very loud but only for a few minutes. This was on the Friday night, not Sat or Sun. One last thing, when we checked in the concierge took our breakfast order, asked what time we wanted the nightly bed turn down and what time we wanted the room made up. Each day Housekeeping did not have the room made up until 2-3 hours after the time we had requested. In the grand scheme of things these were minor issues that are easily corrected. They will not influence our choosing to stay there again when we return to Toronto. A true gem.

What a gem of a hotel. Beautiful decor, impeccably maintained, and can't say enough about the most comfortable bed we've ever experienced. The bathroom has heated floors, and the scent of homemade bathsalts (lavender, jasmine and eucalyptus) permeated through to the bedroom. Would definitely stay there again!

We stayed here after our wedding before going home to Etobicoke, and I am so happy that we did! We arrived late (about 1am?) and the concierge was there to greet us and take a breakfast order. The room was well-appointed - beautiful furniture, gorgeous lighting, a patio overlooking the courtyard. The bed was easily the most comfortable I've ever slept on in my life. And the bathroom! HUGE tub, heavenly salts, separate toilet and shower stalls... just to die for. Breakfast was juice, coffee/tea, pastries, yogurt & fruit -- and was waiting on a tray for us in the lobby area which also had a nice bar to choose from (though we weren't in the mood to take advantage of it seeing as it was 9am). I would recommend this place to everyone!

Amazing getaway in the heart of Toronto. Great location, only four rooms in the entire hotel, gorgeous boardrooms, library, balconies. The hotel rooms are enormous, luxurious, romantic and spotless. The spa downstairs is just for women (which was kind of wonderful) but the male half of a couple might feel a little left out. Then he should remind himself that he gets paid more than his wife does to do the same job… and go relax in the giant bathtub instead.

Room Tip: They're all good!
