While Vancouver is one on the great cities in the entire world to visit, The Metropolitan Vancouver does not match this city's majesty.
We have stayed at the both the Metropolitan Soho and the Metropolitan Hotels in Toronto, and we were expecting the same elegance and panache in Vancouver. The exterior and lobby of the hotel are quite imposing, and we checked in with high expectations. However, although we upgraded to one of their better rooms, it was disappointing to experience a room of copious dimensions with boring, outdated furnishings. The room had absolutely no style! It looked like thousands of hotel rooms at chain hotels all over North America. Everything was clean and worked well, but for the price we paid, we were expecting more than the ordinary. The highlight of the room was a large bathroom with a separate shower and tub.
The service at the hotel was warm and accommodating, but fairly uninformed. I was compelled to tell the concierge about the new restaurants I discovered. My information was attained from "The Vancouver" magazine. One would think this would not be hard for a concierge to find.
I did enjoy working out in their health club which was well equipped. The restaurant, Diva, is quite good but over priced and past its prime.
If you can get a great price, consider staying at The Metropolitan Vancouver. If not, take your chances elsewhere.
