The Metropolitan Hotel Calabar has all the features of a modern hotel befitting for the Paradise City. Acquired recently by the Transcorp group, the Transcorp Metropolitan Hotel has all it takes to add more features and attractions to the already established city of fun and relaxations. This hotel is strategically located on Murtala Mohammed highway – the main road leading into Calabar from the airport, and has since been known as the toast of guests – a feat the hotel has been able to achieve following its acceptance and endorsement by both individuals and government officials. Every year, as the popular and well attended Calabar Festival draws closer, the Transcorp Metropolitan Hotel becomes the first point of call and relaxation spot for the high and mighty as they troop in and out of Calabar for the festivals.
The hotel is centrally located, and has convenient access to the airport, the stadium, Marina Resort, the Old Residency, the Watt and Marion markets, Duke Town Church, the Governor’s residence and civic offices. The location of the hotel affords it excellent visibility from all directions, making it the choice hotel in Calabar for tourists. One major attraction at the Calabar festival is food. Local and foreign chefs at the 146-room Transcorp Metropolitan Hotel have graduated from mere cooks to professional chefs. The sight of a beautiful flower on your table is very appetizing and fulfilling, but more gratifying than this is knowing that they are carved out of various fruits and will be a part of your meal. The usual local and international cuisine is also ever available and affordable. Transcorp Metropolitan Hotel, one of those granted license by the state government to do business in the state boasts of the only conference facility in the city, so it is used for most conferences and banquets.
The 146-room 4-star Transcorp Metropolitan Hotel, Calabar was purchased from Kingsville Hotels Limited by Transnational Corporation of Nigeria PLC (TRANSCORP). A short drive from the Margaret Ekpo International Airport, the Transcorp Metropolitan Hotel is located in the Calabar city centre, close by famous landmarks such as the U.J. Esuene Stadium, Marina Resort, Watt and Marion Markets, Duke Town Church and the Governor’s Lodge.
With a proud history of hospitality dating more than three decades, the Metropolitan is the premier destination hotel in what has become the fastest growing center for leisure and business visitors in the West African sub-region.
The Transcorp Metropolitan Hotel, Calabar has something that makes it different from every other hotel you can find out there. Most hotels present digital pictures and video clips to promote their hotels, but when you book into such hotels you get disappointed because the facilities fall far below what they projected it to be. But at the Transcorp Metropolitan Hotel, the reverse is the case as it looks far more beautiful and exotic in real life than it appears to be on TV screens and pamphlets. It has well furnished rooms with very expansive living rooms for their double suite packages. Their dishes are of international standards and their pool side is quite cool and comfortable. The staff is well trained and always ready to give you the best room services. The Transcorp Metropolitan Hotel is the ideal destination for all your business meetings and private relaxations as they have all the facilities required to give you an unforgettable experience.
