We can tell you about how awesome The Burrard is until we’re blue in the face. Hopefully you’ll believe us when we say that we’re one of the best value downtown Vancouver hotels, but obviously, we’re a bit biased. But it’s not just us who are fans of free bike rentals, espresso machines in every room, and a glorious, glorious courtyard. Over the past couple of months, our media friends have also been singing our praises!
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!
