Convenient downtown location. Close to restaurants. Parking is an issue. The charge is $15/night to use a public parking structure across the street.

Dear guest, We do apologize for the parking, we try to do our best with this. We are in a dense area in downtown New Westminster. The building itself is a heritage building. There are of course other options available to guests, such as street parking if they prefer. Guests are never without a spot to park their vehicle, and most are happy to pay the $15 (including taxes) as it is fair compared to other downtown areas. We are sorry this has inconvenienced you. We do appreciate and thank you for giving us your feedback, as it is very important to us. And of course, we're glad you enjoyed our location otherwise! We hope to see you again.

Thank you for taking the time to review the Met Hotel. All the feedback we receive is important to us. you are correct we only have front agents on 24 hours on the weekends but we do have security on 7 nights a week. The area is a fantastic area with very few problems other then the normal large city kinda stuff. We are sorry to hear that you did not feel safe. The safety and comfort of all or our guests is our top priority. I can assure that anyone staying at the Met Hotel is in a nice area anytime day or night. Thank you and regards,

The Met is Fantastic!

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
We stayed at The Met when we decided that the hotels in downtown Vancouver were too spendy for our trip. The skytrain nearby was fantastic and took us straight to Vancouver, so it didn't matter that we were a little further away. The staff at the Met was courteous and cheerful. Make sure you try the pizza and beer at the attached Met bar and grill!

Great location

If you want or need access to skytrain, the Met is a great choice. The hotel is located at the Columbia station in New Westminster, with very easy access West to Vancouver or east to Surrey. The rooms are very comfortable and the staff is very friendly and helpful. This is not a 5 star resort, but offers a very affordable alternative to the business traveler or family. Free wifi and breakfast.
