Metropolitan Hotel Vancouver

Comfy king size beds. Clean spacious room with decent views. Hi-def tvs, free wifi was average to slow. Check in and out was easy. Moderately priced for area. Nice amenities in the bathroom, separate shower and bathtub.

No complaints with this hotel. The rooms are large and clean. The bathrooms are well equipped and spacious. Lots of closet space. The only issue is the elevators can be very slow. The hotel is very central to shopping, restaurants, the art gallery and only a few blocks from the ocean.

The Good:
Comfortable beds
Friendly staff – front desk, concierge, and restaurant
Decent gym

The Bad:
Unusable internet – internet did not work in rooms or in business centre
Elevators were rickety and very slow
Outdated rooms

I stayed at this hotel for one week. The internet was not usable one of the days that I stayed at the hotel. I had to sit beside my balcony with the door open and use the internet from elsewhere to connect to internet and go to local cafes to work. I tried internet in the business centre and I could not even get a signal in there. This is a hotel in downtown Vancouver in the financial district – they should have internet that works. This is simply an issue of the hotel not paying for enough bandwith as the signal in my room was a full five bars. I tried connecting on two laptops, one ipad, and one iPhone – none worked. Had the internet worked I would have given this hotel 4*, but due to the major inconvenience of not being able to do any work from my room I have given it 2*. This is an easy fix that the hotel should look into immediately.

As a frequent business traveller, I wouldn’t stay here again.

This hotel is in a great location. If location and price are your most important criteria, then definitely consider staying here.

However, in some respects, the facilities offered by the hotel don’t live up to the description. For example, the advertised “steam room” is in fact a (lukewarm) dry sauna, with no steam facility whatsoever. The gym is the smallest I have ever seen, and the pool is also small (10m).

Very old and scary lifts that you have to spend a good chunk of your time waiting for. The Tower of Terror was not as scary as these lifts. The room smell was atrocious as it was in the carpets and furniture. Other than location this hotel is a definite thumbs down unless the price dropped to less than half.

This hotel is clean with very friendly staff. The pool was a great temperature and we really enjoyed the hot tub. Also, the beds were some of the comfiest we’ve ever slept in. Finally, it is a great location if you are planning on walking around downtown!

A quiet personable hotel right downtown easy to access from airport by sky train easy walk to conference Center and shopping great restaurant and pool Clean, welcoming, efficient, where I prefer to stay in Vancouver

I can’t say the Metropolitan was great, but neither was it poor, it was sort of average.
We had to struggle into the hotel with our baggage, as there was no one to open the door or porter in evidence.
The reception staff were a bit indifferent, and not a little arrogant. The concierge a little vague and not too helpful. That said the room was good and quiet at the back of the hotel, so not all bad.
On the plus side it is a good central location and a short walk to the cruise terminal, and this is a bonus.
So it was ok
That said the art work in reception was stunning, and well worth close inspection.

We stayed 6 nights at this hotel on a “stay more save more” deal.
Our King luxury room was very large and spacious. The marble bathroom was excellent as it was huge and had a separate bath and shower. The amenities were nice and very generous including a coffee maker with free daily coffee and a kettle on request.
Whilst this is not a new hotel, it is very comfortable and the location is perfect. The area is nice and within walking distance of most tourist attractions and lots of restaurants. The bus and the train station are only minutes walk away.
The staff were all very pleasant and extremely helpful.
Would definitely recommend this hotel.

This is one of those hotels that you know you will stay at again if you come back to that town.

A little boutique hotel on a plot that gives just 15 rooms per floor and around 150 overall. Genuine, personal luxury where there are some much bigger ones round the corner.

It is very well situated. Bus and train links in the Pacific Centre over the road. Four blocks downhill and you are at Canada Place and the waterfront, Round the back, 5 mins you are in the designer name shopping area. 15 mins to Gastown and Chinatown. Almost anything you want is just a short distance away.

Bedroom really nice, little balcony, very comfortable bed, a lot of marble in the bathroom and all the facilities you want including a machine that makes capsule style coffee. Not a sound anytime to keep us awake.

Nice little restaurant attached for any meals you want in and lots around if you want to eat out.

The staff were great and attentive service from everyone. I mention the doorman on arrival that helped us not get a ticket outside the hotel before we turned in our rental car next block over.

I pick out Rob, the concierge, for excellent service that added to our holiday enjoyment. Endless patience and fount of knowledge. Contacts to help you get the right table in that restaurant.

Quality and personal service from one end to the other.

We Stayed 1 night at the metropolitan after a cruise prior to flying home,
Comfortable rooms and good service, walking distance to all attractions
Bedding was comfortable and views from a higher level

I love the convenience of getting to this hotel from the airport on the metro. Current fare is $6.75/adult from the airport to downtown (Zone 1) and the hotel is less than a half block walk from the City Centre station. The staff have always been warm and friendly, and this stay was no exception. I stayed in 805 on this visit and found the room spacious with a large, firm king-size bed. I arrived after 10 PM, so the restaurant (Diva) was already closed for the evening, although the bar was still going strong. The bathroom was also quite spacious, and I liked having separate shower and tub, even if the shower is definitely a one-person operation. This was the first time that I noticed a long delay in getting hot water after I opened the faucet, which probably indicated either few people staying on the same floor or the fact that I was showering well after everyone else had finished for the evening. I appreciated the Nespresso coffee maker in the room and the morning paper waiting for me outside the door. I always enjoy my stays at the Met and would recommend it highly to anyone looking to stay in downtown Vancouver.

We very much enjoyed our stay at the Metropolitan. Taxis sat outside most of the time, so they were very easy to get. Staff was wonderful, couldn’t be better. The location is perfect. Shopping and restaurants, as well as other attractions, were very easy to get to. I would definitely stay here again.

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.
