Great location close to skytrain. We booked as we have stayed in Holiday Inn Express in various UK locations for a number of years. Basically, you know what to expect and Metrotown HIE similar to rest. Where it let itself down was in the breakfast buffet, which was fine foodwise........ but PLASTIC CUTLERY. No excuse, all HIE's in UK have stainless steel cutlery as standard. May seem a petty complaint but in this day and age you expect better. On the whole the hotel is fine, clean, well located and relatively quiet.
