The Metro Court is one of the local hotels in the city of Port Charles. It is owned by Carly Jacks and Kate Howard, and Olivia Falconeri is the operations manager. It has several sister hotels, including the Bella Maison in Montreal, owned by Carly. It also has sister hotels in Paris, other parts of Europe, and in Hawaii. It is a rival hotel of the Cosmopolitan.
In February 2007, the hotel falls victim to a hostage crisis, led by Jax's brother; Jerry Jacks, under the alias "James Craig". Jerry torments the hostages with a series of deadly games, which leads to the death of Alan Quartermaine. Robin Scorpio is shot in the stomach and is operated on by Emily Quartermaine and Carly Jacks. Max Giambetti is shot in the shoulder, and Father Mateo Ruiz is shot for killing one of the mercenaries. The hotel lobby explodes as a result of the takeover and is eventually rebuilt.
In November 2009, Sonny Corinthos throws a lavish birthday party at the hotel for Claudia Zacchara. After Sonny discovered Claudia was the one who hired a man who accidently shot his son, she feared she herself would be killed and takes a pregnant Carly Jacks hostage at gunpoint to escape. Claudia was later tracked down and murdered by Michael Corinthos.
In February of 2012, Kate Howard informs Carly that Jax has given her his share of the hotel, which infuriates Carly. The hotel is also the locale for the 2013 Nurses' Ball, which returned after twelve years of absence.
Within the hotel lies the offices of the fashion magazine Crimson and tabloid The Sun, both owned by Todd Manning. Crimson is run by Kate Howard, with her junior editor Maxie Jones. The Sun also temporarily employed Heather Webber as the gossip columnist in 2012.
The hotel has many floors, and includes a restaurant and both an indoor and outdoor bar. Parties are often held at the restaurant. It also has an indoor swimming pool, a spa, solarium, and ballroom.
