We stayed here with a group for a wedding and the 4th floor is perfect for gathering. The rooms up there also have a great view of the river if you're on the right side. The staff are friendly and the bar food is good. the location is very central to the area

We stayed three nights at this hotel and would go back. We were treated with respect and assistance. Excellent room and very clean. Central to Sky Train and waterfront. Not a fancy neighborhood but we had no problems. Close to many restaurants and local pub next door.

I have stayed here numerous times. It is in a great location in New West, right near the skytrain station. If you don't mind the noise of the skytrain til 2am, or starting at 7am I would suggest that you ask for a room on the other side of the station. The staff are awesome, they are very helpful as...

we stayed for three nights to visit relatives. the place was very clean and quite. our room was facing the waters. the staff was very helpful. the parking was across the street we had to pay parking daily at the desk. we use the sky train nearby to go to vancouver waterfront. we will recommend to friends and relatives.

Amazing staff who try to help where ever possible. Really close to transport. Literally 2 doors away. Just be aware on a Thursday night as the bar has live music until 11pm. Rooms are large and beds very comfortable.

Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. The city of New Westminster was established in the 1800’s, unfortunately, this didn't accommodate for our modern need of ample parking. The parking lot across the street is not part of The Met, however, we have asked for the right to issue parking passes on behalf of Impark for... More

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
