from check in to check out and everything in between, the metropolitan certainly lived up to the highest standards. great location, wonderful amenities. very comfortable. modern and hip. great business facility, pool and fitness centre.

Room Tip: the higher rooms are quieter.

The Metropolitan Hotel’s staff is friendly and their customer service is impeccable. The hotel is nicely situated close to Granville Street and within walking distance to shops, restaurants and sites. The rooms are spacious and modern. I loved their luxurious bath robes and high quality bedding – nothing like a climbing into a comfortable bed when you have jet lag. The coffee facilities in the room are adequate but perhaps not as modern as they could be. Breakfast was both delicious and beautifully presented. Wifi internet access is free although at times a little intermittent. The gym is small but has everything you need for a good workout. Whilst not the trendiest hotel in Vancouver, its well priced and the quality of their service can be highly rated.

This was the last hotel we stayed in after 3 months of travelling with our children. As a family of five we stayed in a suite, with a king bed, sofa bed and pull-out bed and had enough room.

The hotel's strong points are it's attentive customer service, (welcome cookies for the kids), location, (nice and central), and modern decor.

We were a little disappointed that they didn't warn us at booking about their annual restaurant closure and found it a bit odd they only had a TV in the bedroom - not the room with the sofas. It was a collection of things like that which meant we didn't give it the full five stars.

Would happily stay here again but would also check out the Four Seasons hotel across the road to see if it could better meet our needs.

Room Tip: Higher rooms would be better to avoid the street noise that comes with a CBD location

This hotel meets/exceeds my expectations. Lots of little details that I appreciate such as:
windows that open; bathrobes; real coffee maker (not the capsule kind-which can be good but typically low quality capsules in hotels and I prefer to bring my own coffee and fliter); good lighting; free wi fi; good shower products (molten brown); great location; professional and helpful service; free local newspaper; fair sized room and a good government rate. I have already booked my next stay.

Spent 2 nites at the Metropolitan in Vancouver, great location next to Pacific Centre, close to subway and bus lines, as well as within walking distance of many interesting places in downtown Vancouver. Price was reasonable, rooms are pretty huge with 2 beds and nice big bathroom. A little noisy due to the location downtown, but that is a small price to pay for the location. There is a small gym with a pool, great for a simple workout. Staff was friendly too.

Just spent three nights at this Hotel. It is perfectly located near the busy Granville Street with restuarants, clubs and shops with walking distance. Buses that connect you to Granville Island and walking distance to Stanley park, gastown etc.

Rooms were clean, neat and very quiet. Staff were exceptional. Nothing a problem, attentive, funny and actually looked like they enjoyed engaging the customer. Weather was ordinary but still enjoyed the place. Canada is a great country.

Spent two nights at the Metropolitan where I was also attending a seminar. The room was thoughtfully designed, well equipped [iPhone/iPod docking alarm clock!] and beautifully appointed. The bed was supremely comfortable and the bathroom large with both a corner shower and a full tub. Hotel staff were *always* very courteous and helpful.

The food and service during the seminar were also provided by the hotel, and were excellent. They were very accommodating for one of the members of the seminar who had a gluten-free diet restriction.

One of the servers heard our instructor coughing while presenting, and came back with a specially made cup of tea with honey for them, in a big mug with a note that said "Hope this helps!". The presenter was very impressed, as were the rest of the attendees.

I travel to Vancouver once a month, and this will now be my destination of choice.
