The Met definitely holds its own in terms of its traditional first class service (the doormen are great!) and fresh modern accommodation. It's in the heart of Downtown Vancouver providing and excellent base to explore this fantastic city.
The luxury king rooms are a great size with ample desk space and a small seating area and table - the bed is huge and sooo comfortable! The bathroom is very spacious with plenty of towels and a great range of Molton Brown products to cater for all of your bathing needs. The room itself is smartly decorated and spotless.
Coffee making facilities are in the room and topped up daily. If you prefer tea (and there's a decent choice of teas) you can ask for a kettle as well.
When it comes to geting on line, you have a choice of in-room wired or wireless internet connection. The wirless is quite slow so grab the ethernet cable out of the desk draw and get wired for faster access.
There's a good sized flat screen TV with, as you'd expect, plenty of channels to choose from!
The associated restaurant - "Diva" - is very nicely set out with friendly, attentive staff and has a good choice of very good quality food and drinks (it also provides the food for room service), although it is a bit pricey and you'll find great food everywhere across this city.
There's a fully kitted out gym and indoor swimming pool to help you keep in shape - i haven;t used either but they seem well kept and popular with other guests.
It's a top hotel in a great location with very reasonable rates - highly recommended.
