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.
In the 21 and 19 years since our 2 girls were born , we have traveled as a family regularly and extensively. The thing about this trip was that it really was'nt "a trip" per say , as Toronto and the surrounding area is where we call home . We were in town for my business but moreover for our youngest 19th birthday celebration and we thought we would make it special ....more special than a Westin, a Sheraton ,Marriott , Hilton or even the King Eddy might be in TO , ( we have stayed at them all ) . The RC does not disappoint and is in a class of its own when compared to the former and habitats with the likes of the Four Seasons and Windsor Arms. From the minute we were greeted by the valet , to the champagne at the front desk , to the bell service it was all exceptional . Our 6th floor King Suite with Terrace was immaculate complete with TV buried behind the bathroom mirror . Even when the RC could;nt meet a request we made , to borrow a spare phone charger for one of the girls phones, they sent someone to the room to knock on the door and tell us personally . I mean , what can you say about that except that only a culture of "care" could cultivate such an atmosphere and CARE they do . This hotel will be hard to beat by any ones standards
Lovely hotel, very modern and luxurious. The room was beautifully appointed and had all the expected modern amenities. Perfectly located within walking distance to nice restaurants and shopping. Nice bar and cafe within hotel premises.
The staff was pleasant and accomodating.
Experience was amazing, courteous staff rooms were nice and clean , quiet, we forgot a cork screw and my wife called it in down stairs just to inquire if there was any at the gift shop and they brought one up
Pleasant hotel - Nice setting. Well, now I've been "required" - twice - to "add a bit more" to my review, which survey requirement makes me a little less pleased with the hotel. Take what you are given ... without complaint!
