A female-only Toronto hotel and spa
We visit a Toronto hotel with a spa, to which men are not allowed. The "Verity Spa" is run by a club of wealthy women from the metropolis. Here you have created an oasis of calm in the hustle and bustle of the big city in which you do your business. That's why everything is there: a restaurant, a coffee terrace and a gourmet restaurant. The first morning business meetings are held in the breakfast restaurant. In the afternoon you can have a nice cup of tea on the terrace. And the gourmet restaurant "George" is one of the top restaurants in Toronto.
Wellbeing is a top priority at this Toronto spa hotel
Event rooms are available for the ladies for celebrations and meetings. They have access to computer rooms where they can do their online mail. They also find ways to relax between business meetings. You can pamper yourself in the club's wellness area. Be it with massages, in the sauna, with a swim in the pool or at an appointment at the hairdresser's, the final touches on the hairstyle of women. Well-being is very important at Verity, the Toronto hotel and spa for women only.
Understatement at the Verity Spa
From the outside, the building looks inconspicuous. If we hadn't known the address, we would have passed it. Our taxi driver, who chauffeurs us here, just looks at us questioningly when we ask him to drive us to the "Verity". He doesn't know it and has to type the address into his navigation device to find it. There is no billboard above the entrance. Instead, it is as inconspicuous as an entrance to a residential building. The "Verity Spa" and the four hotel rooms that belong to it are located in a former chocolate factory, which is a listed building. So it shouldn't come as a surprise that the pipes can be seen on the ceiling. They must not be changed.
The building has been carefully converted into a temple of wellbeing. In the inner courtyard there is a cafe terrace where you can't hear the noise of the city streets. With the exception of the “George” restaurant, all rooms face this inner courtyard and are therefore wonderfully quiet. The four hotel rooms also open onto this courtyard with their balconies.
Our overnight stay at the Toronto Hotel with Spa for women only
We are invited to spend a night at the Ivy at Verity Hotel and Cecilia Keller, the General Manager, shows us all the hotel's facilities and spa. Cecilia is originally from Germany and explains to us that men are also allowed to stay in the four hotel rooms. However, they can only access the spa after the club's ladies have finished their day. Petar can only use the hotel pool after ten o'clock. Therefore, we first visit the other facilities of the hotel, have a cup of tea on the terrace and enjoy dinner in the restaurant "George". In the open kitchen we can watch the chefs at work.
The rooms at Verity Spa, a Toronto hotel with spa
The hotel rooms are new to the Verity Spa and they too are special. We stay in room 4, the largest of the four rooms. When furnishing the rooms, emphasis was placed on using natural materials. This ranges from the lamps, which stand on feet made of driftwood, to the beds, which consist only of natural materials. Its furniture and the wallpaper and curtains in warm colors give the factory rooms a cozy atmosphere. The bathrooms are true wellness oases. Bath salts are offered to choose from over the bathtub. The shower is equipped with a shower head that makes you feel like you are standing in the rain. Orchids, crystal chandeliers and candles increase well-being in this bathroom.
Breakfast at The Ivy at Verity
Cecilia asks us whether we want to have our breakfast in the restaurant in the morning or if we prefer to eat in our room. We choose the latter. All you have to do is call the restaurant the next morning to order freshly brewed coffee. Our breakfast tray is already set up on a table in front of our room, so that we can start our day in privacy. A perfect end to our stay at the "Ivy at Verity".
