My husband, mother and myself booked one of the suites at the Met Sunday the 13th and Monday the 14th of July. It turns out I had actually booked the wrong dates on their website but upon calling them on our drive up from Seattle they informed us they had another room available. Whilst check in was painless I have to say the room certainly didn't warrant the price (we paid $329 a night not including tax). The first morning of our stay we were awoken by ground shaking noise that was from the construction next door-we weren't even on the side of the building that faces the new hotel! I'm a sound sleeper and was recovering from jet lag but found it impossible to sleep beyond 7.30 a.m. Not what I call a vacation!
Having only one elevator in a 15-storey hotel is unacceptable (the other was out of order during our stay)-at times we waited almost 10 minutes for it to take us to our room. Due to a power surge in the city during our stay the cable was out for a day/night and we had to argue with the front desk to allow us to view a movie for free. On the whole you pay for location with this hotel and I think based on past experience there are far better hotels for the price near Robson Street.
