My boyfriend and I stayed there for one night. We arrived later at night and it was a difficult neighborhood to find dinner after 10. The hotel staff were all friendly and helpful but the condition of the hotel itself left a lot to be desired. The furniture was dated and had a kind of dingy feel. The room was... More

I needed a place to stay for a couple of nights and it turned out ok. After reading reviews, I chose to request a room on the top floor ( fourth floor) on the Columbia street side, which faces the Fraser river. I was there a Tuesday and Wednesday so the milage may differ on the weekend, but I had... More

The Met, New Westminster is a well run reasonably priced hotel with friendly and accommodating staff. We have stayed there three times when visiting family and have always found the rooms to be clean. It is centrally located and very close to the skytrain for downtown Vancouver.

I stayed at The Met during a transition time between moving out and flying overseas for work after it was recommended by a friend, and it was a mistake. The building is nice, the staff seemed decent (at first), and the rooms were clean and spacious, but the hotel is located above a pub which rendered sleep impossible every night... More

Decent Rooms. Clean. Friendly staff. Pub downstairs. Had good wings. Bloody hot but good. Bed was a little hard. And there is a sky train station behind. I slept through it. Lots of transit near it. Short trip to shopping by sky train or walking even.

My partner and I are both dependant on our power mobility devices. On arrival the managers son assisted us getting our car unloaded and everything into the hotel. He even met me in the parkade and helped me unload my mini scooter. The only minus to this hotel is the parking which is across the street. Room was comfortable, quiet,... More

I got to the hotel quite late after a day of traveling and the check in process was reasonably smooth. The property, room, amenities, etc were well kept and clean. The staff that I interacted with were quite pleasant and there is an adjoining bar/restaurant that allows for convenient meal options.

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...
