You know when someone just “gets” you, and you don’t have to explain your weird rules around reading celeb mags only when you’re on a treadmill, or make excuses because you like Deep and Delicious cake even though you know it’s sort of gross? That’s how we feel about 12HRS, a travel site made up of guides for their favourite cities. Each is 12 hours long (duh) and gives visitors an awesome cheat-sheet for getting a whole lot out of a destination in a short amount of time.
Looking for a cool downtown Vancouver boutique hotel but don’t want to pay the earth for it? At The Burrard, we think you can have your cake and eat it too, and apparently, MSN Travel’s UK site agrees with us!

In it, we’re mentioned alongside other like-minded North American properties, including Portland’s very cool Jupiter Hotel.READ MORE
We’re so excited to be included in this Portland Monthly’s feature, “The Perfect Weekend in Vancouver B.C.” As you’ve probably guessed, we love Portland almost as much as we love Vancouver (which is a bucket-load). It’s a city that does good times, great eats, and all-out delicious weirdness in a way that we can’t get enough of. 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.”READ MORE
