This Asian-owned Metropolitan is less stylish than it likes to think it is, but it has tasteful and comfortable rooms with nary a floral in sight: think beige and beech, with intelligent touches such as double-decker desks and good lighting. The rooms aren't huge, but they are comfortable. The restaurants are distinctly smart (gourmet Chinese Lai Wah Heen serves the best dim sum in town) and room-service meals of a high standard. The hotel is let down by its ordinary public areas, but business visitors probably don't mind. The central location is a bonus too: just steps from Nathan Phillips Square or shopping.
