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... More

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.
