I have been staying at the Met for 3 years now, the rooms are always clean and the staff are charming and kind--love the old world feel of the high high ceilings and Fraser river views.. next door is a cozy pub ( gotta say reminiscent of "Cheers" where everybody knows your name and they are always glad you came)...

We spend 3 nights there on the river side on the 4th floor. The check in was easy, and although I was prepared for the photocopy of my ID being taken and stored, I still don't like the idea. The staff were very helpful and attended to any concerns that we had. The room was nice and had some great... More

I was feeling a little nervous about our room as the lobby is pretty shabby. why wouldn't you fix peeling unsightly wallpaper right behind the front desk? but the woman at the front desk was friendly and efficient so put my doubts aside. 1st impression of the room was ok. the ceiling is quite high so room seemed big. there...

Stayed here for a night during the week. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. The room was very clean. I love that it is a historical building. The pub had great food and the service was very good.

We spent the night here for my husband's birthday and it was a wonderful experience! The room is clean and tidy, ceiling is high and roomy and we love the classic vintage look and feel. The best part is the old fashion KEY! Thanks again! Staff are friendly, and you get a mixture of historical building with modernize fixture.

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.

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...
