We visited the Metropolitan for an overnight stay in our local city. The staff were friendly and helpful as you would hope. The room was a reasonable size, with the finest linens and toiletries (Molton Brown). It was good see a room-safe in the room but the room taken up by all the snacks, bottled water etc seemed disproportionate.
One thing about the room was the TV. I don't think I've seen such an old TV, (remember when they used to be deeper than they were wide?) a TV which sat unceremoniously on top of one a black metal stand I thought they had stopped selling in the 1980s. The picture was, as you would expect, poor. This all made no sense in the context of the rest of the room.
We did visit the bar which seemed agreeable - however on returning to the hotel we found it closed at 11pm which was odd. This was a Saturday night in a top-rated hotel in the hear of the city and the bar was closed? The hotel offered 24hr Room Service, but clearly getting a drink was another story.
Overall the Metropolitan was a reasonable hotel. I wonder if someone has simply taken their foot off the pedal?
