I booked a room here for New Year's Eve with my fiancé in one of the "king loft suites". We had no problem finding the hotel, it's literally right next to the market and you can see the hotel's bright purple overhang from a mile away. We had paid to park in a lot about a block away, but switched to the parking under the market (as the front desk staff suggested that's a better spot - and didn't end up charging us at checkout). Upon check-in, we were told there was a "surprise" for us in our room, and "if we didn't like the colour, we could bring it down and switch it". We opened the door to our room (407), there was a bottle of red wine, a feather boa and a "happy New Years" hat along with a tag saying happy New Years from the staff at hotel metro. The room looked absolutely beautiful in pictures, and in person it was a million times better. Modern furniture, a brick accent wall behind the king size bed, a HUGE window and the best part was the very deep tub in the open concept room. We went to dinner at the keg and out for some drinks. When we got back, my fiancé had asked the girl at the front desk for some Epsom salts for our bath. She couldn't figure out how to put them through the computer so she brought them up to our room and didn't end up charging us. The staff there are so friendly and accommodating, they helped us look up breakfast places that were open on New Year's Day.
After a particularly crappy 2016 (my fiancé getting laid off, having surgery on his spine), this place made our New Year's Eve so incredibly special -- a wonderful experience here! If you like to try places away from your "average hotel", I would definitely recommend hotel metro - plus the location is within walking distance to almost everything and there's a little ice
The *only* thing that I wasn't fond of were the pillows (a little too firm for me) and the "men's cologne" scent on our floor (but I'm not sure if someone staying there went a little cologne-happy or if the hotel uses a spray).
*ALSO, the tub/ shower are open to the room (no door), so don't stay here with someone you aren't comfortable being naked in front of ;-) *
