If you are looking for a resort, spa, and destination hotel, look elsewhere. This is a marvelous hotel for staying while visiting Vancouver. The room we had, 435, looked out over the Fraser River. The beds were comfortable, the housekeeping excellent, the desk staff outstanding, and the manager fantastic. We stayed 16 days and found it convenient to the Sky... More

I had the recent pleasure of staying at The Met Hotel this past weekend. In the heart of New Westminister it is a clean, quiet Hotel with comfortable bed. The price of a room is quite reasonable and staff is friendly. So nice to open my room with an actual key and not a keycard. If you can handle using... More

You wouldn't have know unless you knew it was there as The Met is overshadowed by its surrounding in downtown New Westminsters. The Met is neither fancy nor posh. It is just right. It is surrounded by restaurants, watering holes, and theatres. It's quite evident the building is old and it would be ashamed it gets torn down. The location... More

Stayed at this hotel for one night in a King Bed room. The price was very affordable compared to anything else I could find in Vancouver. The hotel is very old but the inside of the room was surprisingly pleasant and much better than I had been expecting. I normally stay in more mid-range to upscale hotels, but would definitely...

I stayed at this hotel for 5 nights and everything was great. It is in older hotel located on the main drag of New West. Very close to public transit that will link you with anywhere in Vancouver.

The place was really a surprise. When we first drove up and saw the small lobby, I was a little nervous, but the room was large and newly remodeled. It was clean and the bed was very comfortable. It was a hotel built in 1892, but you don't get that feeling because of all the changes they have made. It... More

Stayed one night after arriving at YVR really late. Flight was delayed a bit so I barely got to the hotel on time as the front desk closes at 11:30pm. Room decors were pretty much expected for a hotel in this price range. However, the room was really clean for the price and how old it is. The bed was... More

Perfect location right at Columbia Skytrain station. Great food. An omelet at 9 pm is definitely worth having should a person have breakfast for dinner. Great rates as well. Next time I am down for more than 2 days I am staying there again

We spent 3 nights at The Met in New Westminster. We didn't opt for a river view so we were at the rear of the hotel. A Sky Train station is directly behind the hotel but it caused no noise issue as it does not run during the late night and when it was running it was not a disruption.... More
