Overview

This trendy downtown hotel earns high marks from recent guests for its luxurious amenities, unbeatable location and attentive service. Accommodations feature Juliet balconies, comfy beds clad in Italian Frette linens and windows that open to the bustling downtown Howe Street. For a little more serenity, recent visitors suggest visiting the indoor heated pool and hot tub or unwinding at the fitness center and squash court. 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.

Critic Reviews

Fodor's

'The Met,' as the locals call it, is one of the city's top business-district hotels, with design elements that follow the principles of feng shui, from the two lions guarding the entrance to the spacious, luxurious rooms.

Frommer's

It would be worth staying here just for the complimentary downtown shuttle service in the hotel Jaguar. But the central location, great meeting facilities, and fine restaurant are also pretty swell.

Frommer's Very Highly Recommended

The service bonuses are delightful at the Metropolitan Hotel, from turndown service to free newspapers to morning limo rides in the hotel's Jaguar. It doesn’t hurt that the two resident restaurants offer delicious and varied dishes (upscale Chinese; creative continental), and that the waterfront and downtown mall are within a five-minute walk.

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.
