Metropolitan Hotel Vancouver
Although this 18-story financial district skyscraper has an austere glass-and-concrete exterior, the lobby is warmly furnished with plush, neutral-toned couches and antique gold-leaf carving. Similarly, the 197 guestrooms are adorned with bright contemporary artwork, bathrooms of floor-to-ceiling marble, and Italian Frette linens. Many rooms also have private Juliet balconies. Leisure amenities include an indoor heated pool, a steam room, and a putting green on a third-floor terrace. The restaurant, Diva at the Met, is considered one of the city’s finest and serves Cascadian dishes like heritage pork loin with sauerkraut, pork hock press, mustard jus, and bread pudding.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
