I've stayed in many hotels that stay open during a major reno and usually it seems 'penny-wise, pound-foolish'. Not here. This hotel is converting to a Doubletree and although construction was ongoing, my stay was excellent. Clean and beautiful room. Fantastic staff. Even the construction workers sharing the elevators were pleasant. Can't wait to stay there again, see the finished... More

This hotel is in the process of becoming a Hilton DoubleTree and I had the bad luck to be there for two nights when it was no longer the beautiful hotel pictured on-line and not yet offering the amenities that it soon will. Any complaints I had can readily be attached to their conversion. The staff was lovely, informative, friendly,... More

My boyfriend and I traveled to Newark, Ohio and stayed at the Metropolitan Hotel from May 22-25th, 2014. We arrived technically on May 23rd at 3:00am, exhausted from travelling. It appeared the hotel was under construction, which we had no problem with. The problem was, after traveling 8 hours and looking forward to a decent nights sleep we were awoken... More

Stayed there in May for the 2014 Denison graduation weekend. Was my 1st stay, and sad that I had not found sooner. The Courtyard is the best in the area (due to reduced "Denison Rate" for a room), but this is 2nd. Much better than Hampton Inn and Holiday Inn Express. Pay a little more and stay here. Staff was...

We have stayed in this property several times. it is clean,comfortable and safe. Staff is helpful and friendly. The rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable. The hotel has a nice restaurant/bar and is in walking distance of the Chop House, very good local restaurant offering good steaks.

Thank you for the stay Liz Cramer! Staff was friendly and helpful. Rob (i believe) at the bar was friendly. Although going through renovations the hotel was well maintained. Will return when I return to Newark

I stayed here for quite a while recently, and found it to be a nice LOOKING hotel, with inconsistent and spotty customer service. Housekeeping was great keeping the room clean, though they don't have the correct size of sheets for the beds. The hotel is currently being renovated to become a Doubletree and only one -very slow- elevator is in... More

We went to Newark hoping to find a quaint little town and enjoy the lingering fall weather. (Actually, we didn't find Newark to be quaint at all--it was actually quite desolate in November---but that's another review). The front desk was nice enough to find a room that was ready for our early arrival--it wasn't the King that we booked but... More
