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

My sister and I were pleased with the tall ceilings and comfortable beds and fresh white linens. The staff were helpful and caring people who looked out for us and gave us advice and support in our stay of March 2 to 12, 2014. The location was perfect for transportation to and from Royal Columbian Hospital where my sister had... More

I stayed at The Met Hotel for nine nights in March. I'd be lying if I didn't say I was slightly disappointed with the appearance, as I had the images from the website as my expectation. Though, it wasn't too bad. I stayed in room 327. When you got to the floor, the lobby area on that level had me... More

Maybe I'm just getting to the point of being tired of the cookie cutter corporate mega hotels but we wanted to try something different this time for a trip into New West. Finding a hotel central and at a reasonable cost is difficult in that city just due to the fact of how its laid out . The Met fit... More
