Stayed here for 6 nights during a Northwestern road trip july 2014. The hotel is situated in Burnaby, a "suburb" to Vancouver. It takes about 30 minutes to drive into downtown from the hotel. Vancouver is jam-packed with traffic lights, so you spend a good time of those 30 minutes by redlights. We were here for the attractions that surround Vancouver. For those locations the hotel were more than adequate. But if were to only visit downtown, it would have been a little to far away from the city center. The hotel is situated just a couple of miles from the highways that take you wherever you need to be. We stayed in room 1704 on the executive level. Floors 16-18 are executive levels floor. You can,t hear the traffic on floor 17. The windows are double glazed so you won,t hear anything from outside. We asked for a room facing the mountains and was placed in a room on the other side of the hotel. My Hilton gold membership didn't help me there.... The interior decor of the hotel reminds me more of a contemporary Scandinavian hotel than of a North American hotel. Everything was in perfect working order. I measured the Wi-Fi speed to 2 Mbit/s download and 1 Mbit/s upload, more than adequate. But it got sluggish in the evening when everyone got connected. The beds were the usual Hilton Serenity beds which are just plain wonderful to sleep in. Staying at the executive floors give access to the executive lounge on 18th floor. The lounge is small but nice. The evening snacks were plentiful and of high quality. We never tried the free breakfast there since we preferred the full breakfast buffet in the Reflect dining room. The assortment there was more than adequate but somewhat pricey. You can ask for omelets, but they do not have bagels. The hotel provides parking for a fee in the basement, where we never encountered any shortness of parking space. My Jeep Grand Cherokee fitted without any problem. The rates for the rooms are more than sensible for what you get. You would probably pay at least the double for a similar hotel in downtown. The hotels sits atop a chinese mall with several interesting eateries. If you can get a good rate for an executive room and find it enough with just a continental breakfast, then you have probably made a good deal. Would I stay here again ? Yes if I was to visit all of Vancouver attractions, No if I was to visit just downtown. Hilton Vancouver Metrotown it is a very nice, clean and upscale hotel.
