Downtown Vancouver Boutique Hotel - The Burrard

The Burrard has made a name for itself with modern-retro hotel rooms that combine funky, mid-century modern design touches with loads of bang up-to-date amenities like free wifi, premium cable channels and free North American calling. So we’re beyond thrilled to be included in Aefa Mulholland’s awesome “Vintage Vacations” article in the July 3, 2014 issue of Xtra! In it, we’re mentioned alongside other like-minded North American properties, including Portland’s very cool Jupiter Hotel.

Food Cart Fest
FOOD CART FESTIVAL
We all know food tastes better when it comes from a truck, but what happens when you want kimchi tacos and your friend wants fried rice balls? You can leg it a few blocks and hit up a couple of different trucks, or head to Vancouver’s weekly Food Cart Fest which brings together 20 of the city’s favourite mobile food-dispensaries in the one spot! Along with filling your belly, you’ll enjoy DJs, a craft market and ping pong.

So we’re especially flattered that Portland Monthly mentioned us as not only a stylish place to lay your head, but also as offering “a taste of Portland funkiness.”
