It’s no secret that Vancouver is a tourism hotspot – the city receives over 9 million visitors each year! And while a good number of them come from across Canada and throughout the United States, about 1.5 million of those visitors are from international markets. So along with the fantastic North American media guests that The Burrard gets to host each year, we also welcome travel writers, bloggers, and broadcasters from around the world. Which leads to (you guessed it!) lots of fantastic travel articles in far-flung places that show some love to The Burrard!
Despite the amount of time we sit around dreaming of a fashion-fuelled city break in New York, we completely overlooked the fact that there are loads of people that head to Vancouver for a stylish getaway. Apparently, even folks from the Big Apple, with the latest issue of New York magazine proudly catering to them with a guide to the perfect Vancouver weekend. Spoiler alert: they love The Burrard!
One of our favourite things about flying these days is the inflight magazine that greets us in the seat pocket every time we board. Somehow it’s still surviving in a world where paying for a headset and a plastic-wrapped sandwich is part of the economy flying experience. So imagine our glee when we were flipping through the January issue of WestJet Magazine and spied a certain handsome retro hotel! That’s right, this month’s issue includes a lovely little write-up on The Burrard by Ann Campbell, which lauds us for keeping our vintage character while still offering a modern, boutique hotel experience. Read the article in WestJet Magazine.

What a year it’s been! Here at The Burrard, we’re ready to jump into 2016 with gusto. Along with our standing order resolutions – drink less (or at least, more discerningly), exercise more, change our Brita filter when the light starts blinking, etc., we’re adding a few other resolutions to the list for 2016. We’re going to try to travel more, make a difference in the lives of others less fortunate than us, and make time for our friends (which basically means standing brunch dates with our besties to make sure we squeeze in some gossip and mimosas between all of our grown-up responsibilities.) Wishing you all a happy new year, wherever you are! Love, The BurrardREAD MORE
