Not being able to afford the spendy hotels in Vacouver, we stayed at the Met. Just like other reviews I had read, it is easy to simply catch the sky train into Vacouver. Sean and Chris were great! It was affordable, clean and the rooms were huge!!! New Westminster is a fun town, everything is within walking distance and we... More

The reasonable cost, clean and comfortable room in addition to the proximity to civic attractions including the soon to be completed civic centre represent good value for a weekend trip., By Skytrain using the station around the block from The Met, the convenience of travelling in to downtown Vancouver make this a very attractive option when visiting the lower mainland...

I have stayed at The Met three times now, and would do so again without hesitation. All of the staff have been very friendly and helpful, especially the man who checked me in this last trip. The hotel is always clean, the beds are very comfortable, there are lots of towels and a hairdryer and iron in every room. They... More

Big comfy beds. Delightfully surprised at the decor. Large room. Super clean and great hot water to soak ones tired body after touring around Vancouver. The staff Chris and shauwn were accommodating. Would definitely return as the room rates are affordable and well worth leaving to head to new Westminster for. Train stops at hotel. Restaurant in hotel. Subway and... More

We stayed here for just under a week. The hotel is relatively old, but it is clean and has been maintained. We had a pretty comfortable stay, especially for that price, and the reception staff were friendly and it has free wifi. The only drawback was hearing a bit of noise from the Skytrain, but the train doesn't operate at... More

The Met Hotel is the only place to stay in New Westminster. The staff Chris, Shawn and the others were all great ambassadors for both The Met and New Westminster. They gave terrific suggestions for places to eat and shop locally. We were only in the Vancouver area for the weekend; however, the convenience to the Columbia SkyTrain (996 and... More
