This hotel is adjacent to Columbia TransLink SkyRail station and hence only 25 minutes from Pacific Central station where long distance Amtrak and Via Rail trains arrive. It has a dingy reception area but my room 437 was beautifully restored and a true heritage icon with partial views of the river and huge suspension bridge across to King George. The... More

We stayed two nights in The Met in the height of summer and were happy with our choice. The front desk staff was friendly and the room prices were very good for the location, time of year, and proximity to Vancouver. The rooms were very dated but clean and served our needs. Our room was at the back of the... More

Great little hotel that met our needs for a week in the Vancouver area. The price was reasonable; rooms were neat and tidy and well maintained. Its location was great, steps to a Sky Train station. If you do stay there make sure you take an evening to walk on the board walk along the river. Staff were all very... More

The Met reminds me of a European hotel, with a faster elevator! We spent 3 nights there, really only to sleep, but found it clean, comfortable, well-located. We like to self-cater (although the menu items on their restaurant were tempting) so we appreciated the coffee-maker, fridge, microwave, table and chairs for our on-the-go breakfasts. Good WiFi. We had a river... More

The Met has spacious, well appointed rooms. Fantastic staff, especially front desk folks. Super convenient to Skytrain. If you are at the back you will get Skytrain noise but easy to drown out with air conditioner on. The Met is my preferred hotel when working in Vancouver area.

We had a one night visit and enjoyed our stay. The room was nice, not fancy but clean and roomy. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The parking situation isn't ideal but that was really our only complaint.

A great place to stay. It doesn't look like much from the outside. You do have to park on the street for free from 8:00 pm to 8:00 am. The lobby is plain. But the room. WOW. Big, spacious and clean. Great value for the money.
