Overview

Terrific on-site restaurant
Recent guests complain of outdated rooms
This trendy downtown Vancouver hotel earns high marks from recent guests for its luxurious amenities, unbeatable location and attentive service. Accommodations feature sitting areass, comfy beds clad in high-end linens and floor-to-ceiling windows that open to the bustling downtown Howe Street. For a little more serenity, recent visitors suggest visiting the indoor heated pool. Another crowd pleaser: the award-winning Diva at the Met restaurant, which features Pacific Northwest cuisine (with an emphasis on locally sourced seafood) and an elegant setting. But travelers warn the ambiance and delicious menu come at a high price. So if you're on a budget, consider exploring the restaurants around neighboring Coal Harbour. You'll find the Metropolitan less than a mile east of the Vancouver Art Gallery.

It’s also worth popping into the sleek and stylish restaurant, Diva at the Met, which seems to have something of a revolving door of the city’s best chefs—regardless, something good is always cooking.

It might not be as shiny as the Four Seasons across the street, but the Met is a great upscale value for the neighborhood, especially for adult guests of the touring or business variety.

Although this 18-story financial district skyscraper has an austere glass-and-concrete exterior, the lobby is warmly furnished with plush, neutral-toned couches and antique gold-leaf carving. Similarly, the 197 guestrooms are adorned with bright contemporary artwork, bathrooms of floor-to-ceiling marble, and Italian Frette linens.
