Grouse Mountain

A travel blog entry by chizzer

We bade farewell to our home, the cruise ship, for the past week, and began to enjoy our short stay in Vancouver. The weather was once again very pleasant - we have been so lucky to have good weather!
Our guide had arranged for us to go to Grouse Mountain on the Sunday. Very cloudy up there - yes, another cable car! This time a huge one, …

Ketchikan and Juneau

A travel blog entry by chizzer

We have finally arrived in Alaska proper! The weather continues to be kind to us - sunny with a cool wind, but no rain.
We had a stroll around the town, which, to be honest, doesn't take long! The town must look today as it did in the gold rush days. We went to the Totem Museum, which helped us to understand why totems were made. They are …

Spent one night in Vancouver before travelling to Revelstoke.

Got through customs and immigration at Vancouver Airport in about an hour. Was able to text Antony and found he was waiting on the other side of customs. No problems getting my visa at immigration.

Drove into middle of Vancouver to check into the hotel, was freaking …

A history walk and city views

This was a very late start... mum was still sleeping at 9.30am when Dad called on Skype and then I took an age to pull myself together. Think we are worn out. (He he he).

It's a city walking tour day with Kim. Good news is it's started off cloudy, so mum's happy. We start with a wander across town to B.C. Place Stadium where we spot men …

A walk in the park

It's a lovely sunny morning and we still have the car, so after a lazy start we order the car from the garage (!) and I take mother for a drive and walk in the park.

This isn't just any old park but Stanley Park, named after Lord Stanley, Governor General of Canada in 1888 when the park was opened. It's bigger than Central Park in New York …

    Historical Traveler Reviews Metropolitan Hotel Vancouver

    Very comfortable

    from

    Very nice room, with first rate linens and beds. I didn't make any unusual demands for service, but found that routine items, such as check-in, bellman and room service were all very capable. Room service menu is very pricey, however.

    Not the most attentive

    from

    Book with caution. My friend requested a lint brush, which was denied.

    We didn't get our morning work faxes on 2 out of the 6 days. And to top it off, the maid knocked at our door even when we had the "Do Not Disturb" sign out. Very amateur. I never had these type of problems at other 4 star hotels.

    Great Hotel in Perfect Location!!!!

    from

    This hotel is one of the best places my wife and I have stayed at!! We went there from 12/31 to 1/4 and thoroughly enjoyed it!! The hotel is in a perfect location near all the shopping and restaurants on Robson Street. The evening of 12/31 we were left a message on our phone, which turned out to be a message for an amenity provided by the hotel for New Years Eve, which turned out to be a Happy New Year 2004 chocolate plate, special made!!

    Way to Go!

    from

    This is the place to stay, we moved here from the Opus which we did not like. Rooms are warm with killer bathrooms, quiet, outstanding staff and the restaurant is worthy of our trip alone. if you had 6 stars I would have marked it a total 6!

    Best Hotel in Vancouver

    from

    We love the Metropolitan Hotel! Some years ago, we were heading to the Four Seasons but thought we would check out the Metropolitan and we were so glad that we did. We liked the idea of a smaller luxury hotel for a downtown location. The rates are very good for such a nice hotel.

    A Class Act

    from

    Ended a 12 day Pacific Northwest Vacation with a three night stay at the Classy Metropolitan. Centrally located within walking distance to all including the sky train, sea buss, Robson Street, Gas town, harbor convention center, and business district. Accomodations were exceptional, down bedsrpeads, traventine seperate shower and tub. The hotel pool is covered by a solarium and has a panaramic view of rise buidlings. Tasteful decor both in rooms and throughtout the hotel. Very helpful and attentive staff. Diva at the met restuarant is top notch. I would recommend it to all.

    Great Hotel in Vancouver

    from

    We just returned from 4 days in Vancouver and had a great stay at the beautiful Metropolitan Hotel. The hotel was the perfect location for walking to many areas in the city. Our room and bath (lowest price) were very large, well appointed(robes, toiletry products,etc). One of us had special diet requests and were always accommodated with no additional charge. The staff was most helpful. In and out with the valet parking was no problem.

    Must stay at the Met

    from

    The hotel is located right across the street from the Pacific Centre shopping mall and around the corner from Robson Street (great shopping!). The restaurant (Diva at the Met) is consistently one of the best in the country. Great service, food and wine list. I don't like big convention hotels and found this little luxury hotel to be a great alternative. Wonderful, friendly service...a real gem!

    Terrible experience

    from

    I planned a romantic weekend with my girlfriend in Vancouver and I made the horrible mistake of selecting the Metropolitan. The "Luxury Suite" was a disaster. It had an ugly brownish/yellow colour scheme, the balcony lock didnt work, tons of street noise, marble chipping all over on the vanity, pillows that felt like stones and a second washroom that smelled something of urine. The belhop was also a very sketchy looking character as well. This room should not cost anywhere near the $450CDN a night they charge. The only saving grace was that the manager let me check out immediately and did not charge me a penny for my planned three night stay. Avoid this hotel at all costs and stay somewhere nice and reputable like the Four Seasons or the Fairmont.

    Terrific Hotel in Perfect Location

    from

    We heard of this hotel through a friend who had tried it, and he was right. This is a great hotel. The room was luxurious (down comforters!), and the staff were the best we have ever experienced. The best feature is the location. Unlike other "downtown" hotels we have tried in other cities, this one is right in the center of the action. Pretty much everything was within a block or two. We ate at three restaurants and the best one was the one in the hotel! Definitely recommend using this hotel if traveling to Vancouver.
