Good value and location

Found on travel site. Upgraded upon check-in. Price with all amenities outperformed stay I had at the airport hotel which supposedly rated higher and cost more. Walking distance to most places/restaurants, staff very helpful and friendly. And, TV in the sauna.

Very good location & staff

Great location in the middle of the city and across the road from a shopping mall. Excellent service - very understanding of our upcoming long flight home to New Zealand and allowed us to check-out later without any charges. Also made available a kettle in the room which is not easy to find in many N. American hotels. Will stay there again when we return for another visit.

Excellent

Easy to get from airport to hotel by train as hotel very close to the train station. Quiet location but close to main shops. Restaurant attached is just okay but there are other ones close by to go too. Only stayed 3 nights but would stay there again.

This is the second time I have

This is the second time I have stayed at The Metropolitan Hotel. I really like this hotel for its position and facilities. Service is excellent. Rooms are very well appointed. My only two gripes are: The elevators are very slow as is the internet wireless connection. Otherwise a first class hotel. Will use again.
