      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!!

      The doormen and valet were very friendly, I highly suggest paying the extra $23 CDN per day for the valet service, it's well worth it. We also ordered room service for breakfast one morning and the order we received was wrong. Well we were so hungry we ate it anyways as we didn't want to wait again for another order to be prepared. We called to have the cart removed and they asked me how our breakfast was and we said it was good, but the order was wrong. I didn't make a big deal of it, but they came and took the cart and said that there would be no charge!! That was very nice of them!! They are a first class hotel, we'll definitely visit again in the near future and stay there!!

      There restaurant is top notch!!! It's one of the best dining locations in the city. We didn't have a chance to dine there, but did order appetizers and sit in the lounge for New Years Eve and they were very delicious.

      The rooms are very nice as well. We had a view of business offices, which was fine with us. Just keep your curtains drawn!! hahaha!! Also, there is a place to store your luggage, which was nice as well. Keeps you from putting them on the bed. The tv had speakers located in the bathroom, which was nice as well. You can turn it on a news station or music channel and enjoy the sounds. The only small issue we had while staying in the junior suite was there's only one sink, which isn't all that bad, but easier if you have two. I'm not complaining though.

      All in all, this was one of the best hotels we've stayed in, if not the best. We've visited about five or six in 2003, and we really enjoyed this one!!!

      Cheers

      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.

      We have always had a great stay (5 visits so far) and plan on returning next month. We like the Jr. Suites the best. Lots of room to move around and relax. The pool area is really nice and usually not many people. We have even run into celebrities staying at the hotel. The restaurant "Diva" is wonderful and we like to order breakfast in our Suite. You couldn't ask for a better location. Close to everything. Try Robson Street for restaurants and shopping. Take the trolley ride around town. Great way to see things and you can get on and off all day. Give the Metropolitan a try, you will be pleased with accommodations and staff.

      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.

      ... The food and the service are wonderful. It didn't hurt that David knows the owners and all of the staff really well. Thanks David for introducing us to this great place!

      The return home was as long as expected but the use of our brand new Nexus cards seemed to speed us through Customs and security in Toronto.

      Thanks James for picking us up and Graeme and Alicia for stocking our fridge.
