We’ve said it before, but there’s just something so reassuring about encountering someone who just “gets” you. A person with whom conversations are full of “No way, that’s the way I eat a Kit Kat as well!” and “That’s crazy – I collect glass armadillos too!” We’d like to venture that websites can also provide the satisfaction. Enter the Highsnobiety Guide to Vancouver.
We’re always a little torn when we head off on vacation but have to leave our pets behind. I mean, what could beat strolling along the waterfront with our pooch, or a bedtime snuggle with a kitten? Nothing, that’s what! If you’re looking for a Vancouver pet-friendly hotel, look no further than The Burrard. For just $25/night, bring your dog or cat for a sleepover, and we’ll provide a pet bed, bowls and a treat so you can travel light.
To celebrate, we’re launching our #DogTiredBurrard Instagram contest, running April 7 – 22, 2015. All you need to do is log in to Instagram (you’ll need to have your own account), follow the @TheBurrard account, post a photo of your pet sleeping, and tag it with #DogTiredBurrard. Our favourite entry will win a two-night stay at The Burrard with their pet.READ MORE
We think The Burrard is a modern retro hotel one-off, but it’s also part of a real trend. Take a trip to Portland, Miami or Palm Spring, and you’ll find former motel properties that have been lovingly renovated and re-styled into cool little boutique hotels, big on value and character, and oozing mid-century modern charm. The Burrard is proud to stand alongside funky accommodation options like Victoria’s Hotel Zed, Portland’s Jupiter Hotel, and Miami’s Vagabond.
We love it when people make a fuss about The Burrard being a good value Vancouver hotel. Not because we are a budget backpacker hostel, but because we love proving that a downtown location, stylish retro-modern guestrooms, free wifi, an awesome hidden courtyard, and amenities like espresso machines in every room can be had without breaking the bank!
Being just a quick three-hour jaunt up the I-5, Vancouver sees a lot of awesome visitors from Seattle. Our two cities have this unspoken understanding, like, “Yeah, it rains here, and you’re all obsessed with coffee and technical fleece. We get it. No need for the apology.” Among our many recent Seattleite guests was Jenny Kuglin, a writer for KOMO News’ website, as well as their travel and lifestyle section, SeattleRefined.com.
