The lobby was pretty, but not very big. The room was clean and comfortable. The bartender was very friendly. The front desk lady was a tad bit rude and not very helpful. However, I would stay here again. Overall it was a pleasant stay.

This was our first time in Vancouver but the Metropolitan made it a breeze. We checked in late on a Friday and stayed until Monday morning. The first morning we were going fishing so we ordered room service for an early breakfast. The woman who brought breakfast was very friendly and the food was just what we needed. We didn't...

Wow... I wish I was there to direct you on your run. We are about a five minute jog to the seawall on the north side of the city. From there, you can go around the picturesque convention centre, all the way down to Stanley Park. You can either turn back from there or just keep going around the park...

We stayed here about a week ago. I love the location since it's just a few blocks away from the water. Unfortunately, the deluxe rooms are quite dated and loud and the carpets are thin. The safe doesn't work and the A/C doesn't get cold enough. Everything about the room is dated, like from the 70s or something. Bathrooms are...

Thank you for your review. Glad to hear that you enjoyed our hotel, but a little sad you never tried Diva at the Met... it is an icon in the city... but that will have to wait for your next visit I guess.

Great location near good restaurants, sightseeing and the gallery. Typical Vancouver prices (ie higher than we're used to) but everything costs more there. Comfortable bed, well appointed room. We were there in a heat wave and found our room's air conditioning cold, and hard to control - ended up leaving balcony door open a lot. Appreciated having that little balcony...

Some of the rooms on our fourth floor have little patios which are nice to relax on. Most of the homes in Vancouver do not have AC... which comes to many as a surprise!

My 16 year old and I stayed overnight at the Metropolitan after getting a great price online. From check-in to check-out, we were treated to excellent service, food and environment. Comfy beds, great bathroom items, delicious room service, a lovely urban view - a definite return destination for us.

I've put our clients at the Metropolitan before but had never stayed there. We found the staff to be very friendly, the room was of a good size and very well-equpped with a great bathroom and fluffy robes. The rates are quite fair for Vancouver. A large mall is just across the street from the hotel, and one can walk...

Location of this hotel is very convenient, in the middle of Downtown Vancouver. Lots of dining, shopping and sightseeing (Gas Town, China Town) within walking distance, and the Sky train station Vancouver Downtown is around the corner. From this station you can easily travel conveniently to/from Vancouver International Airport for only CAD 4 per person, which sure is a lot...

The service here has been wonderful. Rooms are nice size, with handy built-in cabinetry for luggage. Spacious bathroom with separate tub and shower. Conveniently located near Pacific Center and not too far from attractions like Gastown.

Great to hear you liked our hotel. And I agree, with all of the built in cabinets, it is nice to unpack and hide your suitcase away... makes it more like home.

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown
Vancouver's business district, the Downtown area is bustling with smartly-dressed folks balancing their lattes and briefcases to and from work. The area's plethora of contemporary commercial, residential, and corporate spaces has bred a landscape of nouveau restaurants, chain cafes, and upmarket shopping options. However, located right on the waterfront of Vancouver's energetic Harbour, Downtown is a also popular public meeting spot, with a massive public library and convention center attracting a bevy of visitors both local and not, as well as a hotspot for the arts, being home to some of Vancouver's most cutting-edge galleries. With behemoth architecture and a professional air, Downtown means business.
