“Beautiful hotel, great for business travelers”
Reviewed October 2, 2012 via mobile

I spent most of the winter commuting to Vancouver and made the Metropolitan my home away from home. The rooms were beautiful, and very spacious. The staff were fantastic and always very attentive to my requests. After a few weeks the doormen knew me by name which was a nice touch. The gym and pool were good to have. Finally, the hotel is in a perfect location - very close to the harbour and the sky train system. Highly recommend this place.

Stayed February 2012, traveled on business

My wife and I spent two days during the weekend we got married in August and it was great! The housekeeping manager Alicja went out of her way to make sure we had a comforting stay. When we arrived, there was a fresh bottle of champagne on ice, chocolate covered strawberries and rose pettles scattered over the huge suite for us. The suite itself was huge! Felt more like your own apartment than a hotel room. Breakfast and lunch was delicious. The staff shows you what customer service is all about. Thank you Raman and Sarah for helping us book so last minute! You guys are the best!!

This hotel does exactly meet urban toursists' expectations! You'll be right downtown at a walking distance from every main Vancouver's attractions. Breakfast is excellent, the service is top quality and the suite was just like being at home. Each room (bathroom, bedroom, living room) is very large, weel furnished, with a nice urban view. Sofa and bed are very comfortable. What a great sleep we had. Pool is a great asset too. Staff had very nice attentions for us. We would definitely go back there if we had to go back to Vancouver!

Spent 4 nights here, had a lovely huge room which was very comfortable and very well equipped (kettle and tea bags delivered on request !). Nothing was too much trouble for the staff in terms of advice, directions and making you feel very welcome. The location is excellent, right in the heart of downtown, ten minutes walk from Canada Place. Continental breakfast was included and this was fine although had it not been included we wouldn't have paid $19 plus tax for it as you can get something much more substantial, and cheaper, just down the road.

We came in early from a cruise, and were pleasantly surprised with being able to check in immediately. Service was prompt, and friendly, from the front desk, to the doormen and concierge. The room was very comfortable with many amenities, and the bathroom had both a tub and separate shower. A nice touch - controlling the lights on the side of the night table. We didn't have a view room, but had gotten a very good internet deal, so were very happy with the high quality of the stay.

My wife and I stayed four nights. The hotel is close to arr gallery in city centre. C-line train from airport is convenient $8 each. The people we met were great. The hotel was great with friendly staff. Our deal included a 'free' continental breakfast each morning and that was good.
We were shocked and really disappointed when we asked for some more toast to be told that we would be billed for it! We declined as a matter of principle. This is not a cheap hotel but gives value for money and they let themselves down. So we ate out each evening following this bombshell! Never been asked to pay for a slice of toast before!

Room Tip: Don't ask for more toast

Friendly staff from the door men to front desk and in between. Outstanding feature - when I asked for extra time for late check out the response was " sure how much time would you like?" and she gave an extra hour " do you need more?". The response we've gotten at other hotels this year have been "I don't know..I can possibly squeeze 20min for you" with eyes rolling or "I can give you an hour for an extra fee" or the plain old "no I'm sorry"(times up you gotta go..)
If you have a relaxing time at a Hotel its nice to leave unrushed.
Bonus points for letting us take our bikes to our room (they were foldable)
