Verified Reviews of Metropolitan Hotel Vancouver

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"We love the hotel, not impressed with 3rd party booking process."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
Was an annual stay with three friends attending Rugby 7s. I have stayed myself many times, having been with Scotiabank for career. Location and premises and staff excellent. However this time when I called hotel number, was actually answered by 3rd party Expedia. Questioned hotel rate increase and tax at over $125! Was told that included parking. When we checked out was told no, stilled owed $45. The staff were great, handled my concern professionally, but still I had to argue I was told it was included. Staff said they don't know what I was told and they don't do bookings at hotel. Will likely go elsewhere next visit.
