An atrium pool with a spa and lounge chairs captures Vancouver's lingering afternoon light. A poolside fitness center contains free weights, weight machines, cardiovascular equipment and a sauna. This is a smoke-free hotel.

Metropolitan Hotel Vancouver
Great hotel very friendly and helpful staff good location

Metropolitan Hotel Vancouver
Very Good8.0
Good with flaws
Great location downtown. It’s a very nice hotel from 10 -15 years ago and starting to feel it a bit. Room quality very high though and Pool very good with reasonably well equipped gym. Also has sauna and steam room in changing room. Lifts were in a terrible state but they were being “maintained” so hopefully should be resolved. Front desk staff were professional but unfriendly. All other staff excellent.

Only issue during first stay was one of two lifts not working but fixed by second visit

Metropolitan Hotel Vancouver
Comfortable room and staff very helpful. The continental breakfast could have been better but was the same at other hotels.

Metropolitan Hotel Vancouver
Very good hotel. Worth a re-visit.
I stayed at this hotel, as it was cheaper than the recommended hotels associated with a conference and using's map I saw that the Metropolitan hotel was only a 10 minutes walk away from the conference venue. My choice was very good. The room I was in was quiet and the windows had thick curtains that kept the sun out when closed. This was ideal for me to combat the jetlag and get a good night's rest. Wifi connection is superb and I got loads of work done in preparation for the conference. I had dinners and lunches outside of the hotel and that where its location is again a bonus. I could walk anywhere and be spoit for choice over places to eat and meet my colleagues. Finally, staff were very accommodating and friendly. The reception desk work quickly and when arriving there I see the staff talking to each as if they are good friends (looks like a nice place to work). There was an issue with the elevators, such that people had to take the service elevator. Even the service elevator is clean. When using it in the morning I was a bit lost, but non-public-facing person (cook?, helper?) showed me the way. Perhaps it is just the nature of Canadians, but I everyone I met from the cleaners to the concierge and receptionists were just really helpful. I don't say this easily, but if I were to go back to Vancouver for any other business (or even holiday), I would definitely check out the prices of Metropolitan hotel to see how they compare with other ones in visiting period.
