We stayed two nights in The Met in the height of summer and were happy with our choice. The front desk staff was friendly and the room prices were very good for the location, time of year, and proximity to Vancouver. The rooms were very dated but clean and served our needs. Our room was at the back of the...

Great little hotel that met our needs for a week in the Vancouver area. The price was reasonable; rooms were neat and tidy and well maintained. Its location was great, steps to a Sky Train station. If you do stay there make sure you take an evening to walk on the board walk along the river. Staff were all very...

The Met reminds me of a European hotel, with a faster elevator! We spent 3 nights there, really only to sleep, but found it clean, comfortable, well-located. We like to self-cater (although the menu items on their restaurant were tempting) so we appreciated the coffee-maker, fridge, microwave, table and chairs for our on-the-go breakfasts. Good WiFi. We had a river...

The Met has spacious, well appointed rooms. Fantastic staff, especially front desk folks. Super convenient to Skytrain. If you are at the back you will get Skytrain noise but easy to drown out with air conditioner on. The Met is my preferred hotel when working in Vancouver area.

Lovely big room, comfy bed, good air con & very friendly staff. Riverside walk with plenty of bars and restaurants near-by. Great value for money. Hotel is old-fashioned and full of character. Quiet room even though in busy location.

We had a one night visit and enjoyed our stay. The room was nice, not fancy but clean and roomy. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The parking situation isn't ideal but that was really our only complaint.

A great place to stay. It doesn't look like much from the outside. You do have to park on the street for free from 8:00 pm to 8:00 am. The lobby is plain. But the room. WOW. Big, spacious and clean. Great value for the money.

Far from downtown Vancouver, but literally on top of the Skytrain, Columbia station making the city accessible within a short 20-25 min. train ride. Being so close to the station...one may think it would be noisy and hard to sleep - quite the contrary as we found the noise to be minimal at best; our room was on the 4th...

Thank you for your kind comments about our little hotel in New Westminster. It sounds like you really took advantage of all that we have to offer as well as the central location of the hotel. Having the Sky train right at the hotel is a big advantage to our guests. Cleanliness, location and pricing are what we strive for...
