I have stayed here numerous times. It is in a great location in New West, right near the skytrain station. If you don't mind the noise of the skytrain til 2am, or starting at 7am I would suggest that you ask for a room on the other side of the station. The staff are awesome, they are very helpful as...

Amazing staff who try to help where ever possible. Really close to transport. Literally 2 doors away. Just be aware on a Thursday night as the bar has live music until 11pm. Rooms are large and beds very comfortable.

Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. The city of New Westminster was established in the 1800’s, unfortunately, this didn't accommodate for our modern need of ample parking. The parking lot across the street is not part of The Met, however, we have asked for the right to issue parking passes on behalf of Impark for...

This hotel is close to sky train which makes for an easy commute into Vancouver if you are wanting to go shopping, see a hockey game etc. It is an older building and is comfortable and clean.

Not being able to afford the spendy hotels in Vacouver, we stayed at the Met. Just like other reviews I had read, it is easy to simply catch the sky train into Vacouver. Sean and Chris were great! It was affordable, clean and the rooms were huge!!! New Westminster is a fun town, everything is within walking distance and we...

The reasonable cost, clean and comfortable room in addition to the proximity to civic attractions including the soon to be completed civic centre represent good value for a weekend trip., By Skytrain using the station around the block from The Met, the convenience of travelling in to downtown Vancouver make this a very attractive option when visiting the lower mainland...
