You can say anything about Calabar and be forgiven, one thing you cannot however get away with is saying Calabar is lacking in enjoyment, business opportunities, fun and merriment. Metropolitan hotel which Transcorp recently acquired and is now known as Transcorp Metropolitan hotel is poised to add more to the already known features of people's paradise.

Strategically located on Murtala Mohammed highway, the main road leading into calabar from the airport, Transcorp Metropolitan Hotel has since been known as the toast of government officials a result of a long romantic history with both the citizens and government in Calabar; but as the days of the calabar festival draws nearer it is now equally known as the first point of call and relaxation spot for upwardly mobile people in and out of Calabar.

The Hotel can be said to be centrally-located and is in convenient location for 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 Calabar festival is food. Local and foreign chefs at the Transcorp Metropolitan hotel have graduated from mere chefs to artists. The sight of a beautiful flower on your table is gratifying, but more gratifying than this is knowing 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.

Some key Transcorp personnel that were instrumental to the acquisition of Metropolitan hotel are Vincent Akas- Over 16 years experience working in the Hilton in the US. He is currently the Operations Manager at the hotel. Nuhu Sani is the Logistics and Procurement Manager and has been with Transcorp at the Hilton Abuja office for over 4years and Afie Makinde has over 15 years project management experience and has been instrumental in the acquisition and Marketing of the Hotel.
