Metropolitan Hotel Vancouver

Vancouver, Canada

The hotel

Standing out with discreet yet decadent touches, Metropolitan Hotel Vancouver feels deliciously different. It’s architectural drama like the curved glass wall sweeping over the heated indoor pool and hot tub. It’s details like the Juliet balcony, luxurious linen, and free WiFi in your deluxe guestroom. It’s unusual extras like the squash court, which pair with essentials like the fitness centre. It’s the divine dining and wine list of Diva at the Met. When you want to explore a little further, you’re just two minutes’ walk from the SkyTrain – that’s if you don’t get distracted by the Pacific Centre mall opposite this downtown hotel.

We booked the Metropolitan hotel to attend a conversation. We discovered a well appointed, conveniently located accommodation, with friendly, helpful staff. We will definitely be returning to visit this hotel!

This is a very cozy and quiet hotel. Clean room and a big nice bathroom. Location is excellent. Walking distance to many places - waterfront, Art Gallery, many restaurants and if you like shopping, across from Pacific Mall. It is also very close to the metro station and the Canada Line stop from the airport.

My car was parked where salt water from deicer ran all over the trunk and back of my car. The hot tub doesn't work. You pay $45/day in parking fees, Parking sucks. Wi-Fi is not user friendly. Rooms come with a stocked bar but what if you bring your own stuff? You have no room to put anything. The maids are awesome, the bell hops are nice… Read more

Great location. Handy to shopping, restos and bars. A throwback style hotel, incredibly spacious bedroom and bathroom... a tub and a shower and beautiful toiletries! Service is attentive, without being overwhelming... hard to do!

I stayed in an Executive King room, which was better than I expected. It was quite large, with lots of closet and drawer storage place. The bathroom was unusually large, but without being ostentatious. Shower is rather small, but separate from the bath, which I prefer. The tub was extra long, which I appreciate as a tall person.

I stayed in an Executive King room, which was better than I expected. It was quite large, with lots of closet and drawer storage place. The bathroom was unusually large, but without being ostentatious. Shower is rather small, but separate from the bath, which I prefer. The tub was extra long, which I appreciate as a tall person. More than enough storage (closets, drawers). Large full-length mirror in the hallway area. Keurig coffee maker; teapot upon request. Really friendly staff. Marc from the Room Service team was especially kind, and everyone from the front desk to the housekeeping staff were over-the-top polite and willing to help. When I arrived home, I thought I had left some jewelry in the room, and when I called, the staff went above and beyond to try to help me find it. They called me back promptly with updates, did thorough searches (more than one, just to be sure), and they were extremely kind. Great people. My only real complaints about this hotel were the elevators - each stop at a floor was shaky to a point of being nervewracking. I'm sure they're maintained well....but I did not feel great riding in them. Also, the hot tub was not operational when I was there, which was disappointing, but I know that's just bad luck. Read less
