Hotel Info

Overview

Vancouver. It takes your breath away. Mountains embrace ocean in a spiritual accord of natural wonders. Panoramic views prevail, the legacy of residents determined to preserve a skyline money can't buy. It is in to be out. Outside walking along the Stanley Park seawall, skiing day or night on Grouse or Seymour Mountains, biking through old growth trails of Pacific Spirit Park, sailing on English Bay, shopping at the Granville Island public market. Here play inspires work, encouraging innovation and daring daydreams to come true. This picture-perfect setting deserves a picture-perfect hub that encourages these outside pleasures. Yet offers a refuge from the non-stop pace of every day - a place to rest and strategize far from the noise, yet always within a modem's reach. Welcome to life at the Metropolitan.

Vancouver

Vancouver is a large and modern city, nestled between the coastal mountains and the Pacific Ocean. The city has a lot to offer guests of all ages, from its museums and galleries, to its botanical garden and green spaces. Those looking for adventure will not be short of things to do, from winter-sports and rock climbing in the mountains, to bungee jumping and volleyball on one of the city’s many beaches. During May to September Vancouver is also a good place to go whale watching. Like many big cities Vancouver has a great selection of restaurants and bars, serving mouth-watering local specialities and diverse International cuisine.

8/10 Great

14 August 2012

Good location - big room - front of Mall

Central location near restaurants and shops. Near direct station to airport. The room is big with 2 queen beds. There is a fridge with minibar. Cons: The television is very old, it should be a LCD TV. I wanted to watch my videos of the holidays on the TV and it was impossible! I stayed 2 nights in Metropolitan and they charged on my account more than 500 € for damages and eventualities! After 15 days i haven't already received the money back.

The best thing about my stay was...
