We stayed one night at the Hilton Metrotown to visit a nearby cultural centre, a restaurant we wanted to try, and the Metropolis shopping mall (which was a five minute walk across the street). So the location of this hotel couldn't have been more ideal for us,
The room was decent-sized by today's standards. Very clean, the king bed was comfortable, great pillows, the linens and towels were fresh and clean, and the room was very quiet. Climate control worked well when needed. The shower was great, with excellent water pressure and lots of very hot water. Staff was very friendly.
Just a few small negatives: the toilet clogged very easily, and being too embarrassed to call for service, I rolled up my sleeve and took care of the problem (I avoided finger foods that evening). The parking garage was archaic, with lots of tight, blind turns, and tiny spaces. Vehicles (I think they were hotel shuttles) constantly blocked the tiny driveway to the hotel and garage. No free WiFi was an annoyance, and no access to the free snacks or breakfast was disappointing given the price we paid and reinforced the fact that we're not rich.
Having said that, the agent who booked us gave us a "corporate rate" even though my employer nor my wife's employer did not have a corporate plan with the hotel, which was a very pleasant surprise.
All in all, a very nice stay and would definitely recommend!
