Excellent location for air travellers as it is not necessary to go outside (a huge plus in winter, especially if travelling between climates) and is an easy walk from the terminal. Baggage carts are also available for free, though I only discovered that when returning to the airport!
Hotel very comfortable, staff very helpful. Restaurant reasonably good but overpriced - I assume one would have to travel to find alternatives. Lack of a buffet option for breakfast was particularly annoying, especially as there is clearly an area of the restaurant that is set up to accommodate this. However a la carte menu service was swift (a must for early morning departures).
My other main complaint is charging a fee for wi-fi access. I know this to be a frequent complaint from travellers and it seems to be a consistent practice in 4* hotels and up. Cheaper chains include free wi-fi, where upmarket hotels charge a fee. This kind of nickel-and-diming, when one is paying premium price is IMHO completely unjustifiable. I know I am not alone in this opinion!
When looking for a location to stay 'in town', we looked at hotels and bed and breakfasts and based on the reviews we read, decided on the Ivy at Verity which to us seemed to have the best of both worlds - the amenities of a hotel, and the intimacy of a B and B.
Once we found the entrance to the hotel (117D by the way) we were greeted by the concierge who then took us up to our room, giving us the history of the building, and a tour of the facilities normally used by the members of the club in which the 4 rooms are located.
The room was beautiful, large and comfortable, and extended by being able to go out onto the balcony. The bathroom and room were extremely clean. In addition to the amenities in the room, there was a common area just down the hall where coffee, tea, and soft drinks were available (complimentary). An honour bar also had a range of beverages for consumption. The common area was also where you picked up your continental breakfast. Coffee was brought up to our room very expeditiously after a simple call down to the front desk.
I picked this hotel as it was close to my conference and was I ever happy with everything it had to offer! The staff was so very helpful and knowledgeable about where there was good food and entertainment! Very glad I picked this hotel! I will definitely return and who knows maybe just for a weekend getaway :D ! Thank You Don Valley Hotel and Staff!!!!
Great friendly helpful staff. Hotel is modern and rooms are stylish and comfortable. The rain forest showers are fantastic. Beds are to die for. Breakfast could have more options. In room massage is a must. Pretty good view looking out from the rooms on the north side of the hotel.
Over all great hotel would definitely go back

"Quick trip with pleasing reasonably priced hotel"
Needed a well priced hotel on route home from Quebec and trusted Holiday Inn reputation. Appears to have been there awhile but nicely upgraded and well priced with several eateries within three traffic lights to the right per information from hotel staff. Preferred to not eat at local attached restaurant which was up scale and traveling rather late in evening.
