As part of Verity – the exclusive women’s club – The Ivy’s other award-winning amenities include GEORGE Restaurant, Secrette Bar, Sweetgrass Spa for women, and a women-only fitness and pool facility. The Ivy caters to both men and women, however, because we are a part of Verity which is a private women’s business club, the pool, spa and fitness facilities are open to women only. Men have full access to the hotel, restaurant, bar and lounge they can enjoy a massage in their hotel room. Since opening in 2003, GEORGE Restaurant has established its place as an acclaimed culinary destination, and is known today as one of the best fine dining experiences in the country. Led by Executive Chef Lorenzo Loseto, GEORGE has recently been included in Canada's first installment of the Michelin Guide. GEORGE guests can choose from an à la carte tasting menu or Chef Loseto's signature Chef's Choice tasting experience, customized according to each guest's preferences.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

My husband and I stay in Toronto every few months so like to try different hotels each time. Recent stays have included Intercontinental Yorkville, Pantages, and Ritz-Carlton. For our latest stay, we booked a room at The Ivy at Verity. I can honestly say I've never had a more lovely hotel stay! The staff seemed very proud to work there and were both warm and professional.
The room we stayed in (Room 1) was large and beautifully appointed ... The care they've put into decorating each room is apparent in every fabric and furniture choice. The bed was luxuriously comfortable and the bathroom spoiled us with heated floors, marble vanity and a selection of aromatherapy bath salts.
The common area immediately outside the rooms is a charming space with a large granite table used for drinks in the afternoon and breakfast in the morning. Alcohol was $6 a drink (very reasonable) and done on the honour system...all the drinks were out on the table and you filled out a card with what you drank to bring to the concierge later for payment. Espresso and soda was free as was the wifi and a continental breakfast. That breakfast was also delicious! Large flaky, buttery croissants, yoghurt and granola, hard boiled eggs, and juice were waiting on trays labelled with each room number and you simply rang the concierge to have fresh coffee delivered when you woke up.
I didn't want to leave! I can't wait to try this hotel in the summer and enjoy the lovely terrace.
Well done, Ivy... You've created a little oasis in the heart of the city!

We chose the Ivy's Urban Retreat package for one night as a way to celebrate our anniversary in Toronto. In the city, there are no shortage of luxury hotel options, but it can be difficult to find a place to stay that is really in the "boutique" category while offering privacy, luxury, fun, and peace while away from home. In just about every category for evaluation, the Ivy excels. This 4-room hotel downtown stands out and above other options in Toronto, and we're thrilled to have discovered it.

You can request a particular room when booking, and we chose room #2. With a calming colour scheme, plenty of space, a gorgeous marble bathroom (deep tub and huge shower room!), and a large flat screen with a blu-ray player, it's well-outfitted, comfortable, and very quiet. You have access to a refreshments area with honour bar and complimentary soft drinks, as well as access to the members only lounge area, which we didn't make use of. Their packages have incredible value, and we had the chance to enjoy an included five-course meal at the onsite George restaurant and an hour long massage at the onsite Sweetgrass spa.

To clarify some confusion amongst the reviews and elsewhere, Verity is the parent company here and responsible for the spa and restaurant, as well as the hotel. The spa (and this includes all available fitness facilities) is women only, but this absolutely does not mean that men are somehow unwelcome. In fact, should you wish, men can request in-room spa services. As a male guest, I absolutely loved my stay here, and my partner was able to make use of the beautiful spa facilities.

Toronto seems to be a city where it can be difficult to feel as if value matches cost for accommodations. The Ivy at Verity bucks this unfortunate trend and offers an experience we hope to someday return for.

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 they had overbooked the hotel for the night and that I would have to re-book elsewhere. I was not given any explanation as to how this happened and was quickly given a "list" of other hotels to re-book myself.

In all fairness I did book through Bookings.com so I am not sure if that had something to do with the poor way we were treated. Given that the hotel admitted it was their fault I would have expected management to (at the very least) try to find us another night to stay and perhaps offer some sort of incentive as an apology. We will not be booking back at this location.

Stayed here with my husband and baby while attending a wedding at the connected George Restaurant below the hotel. Both hotel and restaurant were exceptional. Only regret is that I didn't take a bath in the beautiful tub. The bath salts laid out looked truly divine! My husband could not get enough of the big shower.

This hotel is part of a small, elegant upscale spa and restaurant complex and women's club. The restaurant is superior as are the spa facilities and the rooms. Decoration is in impeccable taste in every part of the complex. The beds are British--Hypnos is the brand. They are ultra-luxury in price; more importantly, they make for an exceptional sleep. We had a perfect escape to an elegant oasis in the middle of Toronto in the winter. Highly recommended.

This is a hotel within a women-only club, so only females have access to the pool, spa and gym. The rooms are great, and service is excellent, so I didn't mind staying in the room or walking in the neighborhood while my wife enjoyed the facilities

I stayed at the Ivy in November and it was wonderful! The room we stayed in was beautifully decorated and so serene. I especially love the bathroom, and the special touch of the bath salts "buffet". After a night out at the nearby distillery district, we enjoyed decadent desserts from George in the comfort of our room. The service was great. This was my 3rd time at Ivy and I expect I will return again!

Great hotel, unique experience. Highly recommended. George Restaurant was also amazing. Friendly staff, good breakfast and complimentary drinks all day. We also liked the spa, which is for women only. A bit weird neighborhood, but quite close to everything.

Found this hotel on Expedia, and the more I read I about it, the more curious I got, as it was 'boutique' and 'euro influenced'. I booked it based on reviews and that it would be perfect for my wedding anniversary. After arriving, it surpassed our expectations. The room's were fantastic, very spacious and clean with a balcony, the decor was in great taste, the bed was great, the food at their neighbour restaurant 'George' was fantastic, and the staff (in particular George and Jen) made every effort to make our stay enjoyable. I was so relaxed by the time I checked out of the hotel, that I forgot my laptop cord, and within 2hrs, I had an email from the staff letting me know that I left it behind. It's a great hotel which Toronto should be proud of.
