Metropolitan Hotel Vancouver

I went for a conference in Vancouver and I stayed at the Metropolitan Hotel for two nights. I would strongly recommend this hotel to anyone since it is in the centre of the downtown, and the service is really good.

Room was average, on the small side. Bathroom was nice.
Location and amenities good
Restaurant service for dinner was not great; 4 meals received, 1 sent back as steak was not cooked properly. Forgotten in kitchen so one in our group ate meal after we were all finished. Waitress was polite tho.
Front desk service was good

This was the 5th time at the Met.
I call it my home away from home.
it’s clean, comfortable & conveniently located.
Staff are professional, friendly & inviting.
Check in and out is fast.
The restaurant is clean, food is excellent and the service is good.

We liked that you could use the pool and hot tub until 11pm I love the size of the suite and the bed was comfy I liked the balcony on both sides of the suite The music system that u could hear in every room

Large room with sitting area. Clean. Across from the Pacific Center Mall, 1/2 block from the Vancouver City Center stop of the Canada line.

Extremely well run hotel. All staff were free with advice as to what to do and where to eat and just char. Bathroom had separate shower stall. Very modern look and feels but in a comfortable way.

The reception area was not up to the standard of the hotel. Whereas other hotels have large and lavish reception areas, the Metropolitan reception looked more like the entrance to a luxury car park than to a luxury hotel. As I was treating my mother I wanted a more impressive entry way such as those of the Georgia, the Fairmont or Four Seasons (or even the Westin Bayshore which is a much lower priced hotel). Also, although the hotel claimed it was pet friendly there was almost nowhere appropriate to walk a pet. The hotel is right downtown and there are no garden areas either inside the hotel or immediately outside the hotel. Lastly I ended up regretting staying in a hotel right across from Robson square. While that is considered the heart of the action it was a massive pain to drive to (taking over 30 mins to drive the couple of blocks needed to reach the parking garage). The hotel was not really set up well for drivers due to the congested traffic and lack of proper valet area (ie cars are expected to pull into the entrance of the parking garage and quickly jump out so as to not block cars leaving the garage). Valet fees were $40 a day and I ended up wishing I had stayed down by the Bayshore where its easier to get in and out by car and where the parking options are better value. In short this hotel felt to me more geared around business travelers who will pay a premium to be right downtown.

The staff were very professional and took efforts to accommodate our requests. The rooms were clean, modern and in very good condition. Also the pool was really very nice (as nice as the photos). It was a good size and temperature and the lighting and glass covering over the roof really made it seem extra special.

Nice enough hotel, a little dated. Large rooms and bathrooms (but showers are on the smaller side). Beds are comfortable. Unfortunately, the robe was very tattered… Makes you wonder how many other people have worn the robe before you

Located in the heart of Vancouver BC, very convenient location, walking distance from restaurants and shopping.
Friendly and helpful staff. Room was very clean, big bathroom, restaurant conveniently located on the main floor next to lobby, if you don’t want to go out.
Very happy with our stay. There is no street parking, so parking was additional $40 a day.

My husband and I stayed at the Metropolitan Hotel Vancouver for one night when we were in town for a wedding reception. The front desk staff and the bellman are super friendly and helpful. The location is very central – close to everything. The rooms are very clean and the bed was super comfortable. This is my second time staying at the Met and we will certainly stay again should we need accommodation in downtown Vancouver.

The Met easy access from Canada line from airport and from North at Whistler. Good food at Divas and room service. Now only wine needs to match up. Nice friendly size. Great access shopping and downtown. Pool small but clean and quiet an windows to outside. Like the pool, location, food, and size.

We have stayed at the Met once or twice a year for the past 15 years and are always pleased by the quality of staffing, cleanliness of the rooms, and general attention to details. The bed and bath linens are excellent, and the rooms well appointed. Meals at the Diva restaurant downstairs are nearly always very good. No complaints, and we will be back.

From the moment I checked in, I felt that I was treated like royalty, and the staff was there just to accommodate my needs. Clean and comfortable rooms, excellent restaurant bar, courteous personable and helpful staff. This is my ‘go to’ place while trying in Vancouver!

this hotel is so well placed, just up from the harbour, a stone’s throw away from the sky-line and right next door to a shopping mall, what more could you want!

the rooms are large and bright with big comfy beds. The view from our room was especially nice at night when all the buildings around had their lights on.

Spent a couple of days in this lovely hotel on a first visit to Vancouver. This hotel is situated right in the hub of downtown Vancouver where our travel agent said all the good things were in easy reach if we liked walking through the busy downtown area. An ideal location for everything, metro, buses, museums, stores etc. all within easy walking distance plus recommended areas like the Gastown , travel to Granville island and the Chinese districts also.
The hotel is surrounded by tall buildings but we never expected to watch a sunset through these skyscrapers with such wonder, what a view from the 12th. floor.
The room was superb and well maintained for an older style hotel which we prefer.
Although they have a pool and gym we didn’t have time to use them so cannot comment on them. The staff were brilliant and were extremely helpful and sorry we only managed a short stay in the city. Would recommend this place to anyone for a visit.

We stayed here for 5 nights and it was perfect with a small balcony, unusual shaped room with a great design. The lobby has wonderful carpeting and an unusual gold leaf wooden screen. We ate here some nights and chose the entrees and starters as the portions are on the large size. The service is very good and friendly, but the menu is a little limited. We experienced a few problems with the lifts being busy and sometimes out of action but otherwise it was a great hotel. We also requested a late departure which only cost a few extra dollars which suited us for an early evening departure from the airport. The metro is literally round the corner, and has a direct link to the international airport. There are also plenty of buses, trams etc to get you around Vancouver if you don’t feel like walking. An excellent mid price hotel with top facilities.

great central hotel to stay at . Staff happy to sort out bookings for you . Plus will hold your bags once checked out . The Sunday night drink and food option is great value . Room had a great view .

We stayed one night after an Alaskan cruise. It was a short and convenient walk from the dock, though we had backpack style luggage that wasn’t too heavy. It took about 10 minutes to walk. The room was spacious and the bathroom was huge (especially after a week with the cruise bathrooms!)
The best thing about this place though was the concierge services. Both of the gentleman that we worked with were thorough, patient, and knew the city well. They were able to guide us with some recommendations that were perfect for us.

Nice hotel, small reception area but large bedroom with very comfortable bed and large shower room. Nice toiletries and a good shower. Reasonable priced breakfasts. Good location to bus stops, restaurants and shopping mall.

This is a very nice hotel in downtown Vancouver, just a few blocks up from Canada Place, where the cruise ships dock. As a matter of fact, we didn’t hire a taxi, we walked with our suit cases from our cruise ship to this hotel. Now, before you try it you should know that my wife & I are in pretty good shape. The room was excellent with a really nice bathroom (has separate tube and shower), the furnishings were very good and the bed was very comfortable. The HVAC worked well and was quiet. The refrigerator was almost full of honor bar stuff so there was only a little room for items we had to refrigerate.

The staff was very friendly and efficient, and helpful. We enjoyed our stay, just would like to have had an included breakfast. For the price paid for the room, it should be included. I have never paid more for a hotel/motel room.
