In a handy local location with nice shops and restaurants around.
I think my room was above the kitchen so woke up early with the smells of cooking. That was the only thing that I would have changed, other than that great place to stay.
Everything else. We love having "staycations" at the Metterra. The wine and cheese in the early evenings are a real treat. Location can't be beat. Staff are very pleasant and attentive. Housekeeping standards are high.
I wish the lighting in the bathroom was brighter. The lack of safety bars in the bathroom was a challenge for someone with balance issues. No full length mirror.
Staff was amazing.
Room was alot different from what we thought we were booking at it was just dirty. The room needed a deep clean the currents were torn and covered in stains the sliding doors were full of dirt and dirty windows bathroom was dirty and the shower could have used some tilex for the mud and dirt. Just because house keeping wipped it down with a rag doesnt mean it was clean. It was disappointing beyond words as I haven't stayed in this hotel for a couple of years and was excited to visit. I can say it was more then a let down to see how downhill the accommodations had gone.
Overall nice, but needs a few improvements (attention to details)
Comfy bed, overall cleanliness was good, nice amenities (though I was surprised at the fee to enjoy most of them...) Liked that they encourage people to be green and give them the resources to do so! The bathroom items were a very nice touch. Bright, clean rooms. Would stay again, though I have some suggestions..
The front desk staff wasn't exactly helpful.. they asked if I had stayed here before and I said "No", and then he didn't inform me I needed to scan my card to use the elevator, so I was stuck pushing buttons wondering "what the heck?" for a several minutes before I poked my head out and he informed me I had to scan my card... He also asked me 3 times how many key cards I needed. A lot of the lights in the hallway and in my room were in disrepair (they turned on, but the shades didn't sit straight on them, which gave the appearance of disrepair). One of the light shades in my room was completely missing a piece and sat directly on top of a lightbulb, which is a huge fire hazard. They provided earplugs to deal with the fact that the hotel is directly on Whyte Avenue and a bit noisy... except that the little box with the earplugs didn't actually have a pair of earplugs in it (it was just an empty box). Finally, the shower mat didn't have any kind of slip resistance. When I went to get out of the shower, it completely slipped out from under me against the smooth tile flooring and I fell back into the shower, injuring my hip. The entire side of my body is riddled with bruises because of the fall.
Excellent value boutique hotel
Location is excellent - among the many restaurants, bars and small shops on Whyte Avenue. Rooms are well-appointed, stylish and very clean. Staff was professional and friendly. Included breakfast was high quality with hot and cold items.
My only criticism is that the plumbing was getting worse for wear (drain stopper in sink didn't work).
