5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2012

We stayed for 3 nights with 4 people (2 rooms) and had a fantastic stay!

The hotel is one of a kindl!! We def. stay here again in the futur.

- staff is friendly and helpful; tips for restaurants were excellent! (the young, blond guy was the best, but they were all ok)
- location is perfect;
- free bikes (excellent to discover Stanley Park); coffee maker in room
- nice/funny decorations, recent renovation (great rooms!)
- fabulous atmosphere
- good beds: good night sleep
- price parking is ok

We love Vancouver and The Burrard!

The Burrard is a revitalized retro motel in central Vancouver. Location is superb. Restaurants, convenience stores, grocery/markets, and shopping are all very close. Inside in the motel, you will find an updated room with all the modern day hotel features with a touch of retro-inspired flare. Bedroom was comfortable. A portable A/C unit was available to use in the room. Bathroom is small, though. There is a noted lack of shelf space in the bathroom. Overall, a great place to stay in Vancouver, especially since room prices can be quite high in this city.

Loved the witty notes all around the room instead of the boring standard information book. Stayed 3 nights over a weekend and never had any problems with the noise that some people have had. Definitely a fun and unique place to stay, would do it again.

We thoroughly enjoyed our two nights at the Burrard where we found the staff very helpful and pleasant, the rooms chic and unique, comfortable yet stylish, and the location very friendly near the center of town. Easy access to ethnic restaurants, short walk to the Granville Island ferry and within easy reach of most of Vancouver's main sights.

We stayed in a 'queen+' room for 2 nights. Although the design of the hotel looks great and all the labels and signs have a funny tagline, the overall quality of the hotel is merely average compared to the price of the rooms.

Some major drawbacks:

Rooms are SMALL. Event the queen + rooms are really small.

The airconditioning in the room (one of those really noisy mobile units) fail to cool the room by even a single degree.

We had a room with windows on the street side. The hotel is situated right opposite the emergency entrance of a hospital which means ambulances with sirens will drive by at least 5 times every night. Keeping the windows closed is not really an option as the airconditioning mentioned above does not work.

The hotel staff has been really creative in listing the room amenities. Expect a 'full seating area' to consist of a chair, a plastic box as a table and a ottoman cramped in your room. Expect a 'stunning bathroom' to be so small you can hardly turn yourself around and lacking in every aspect of 'spa quality' as the website describes. The only "spa-like" feature of the bathroom is that the window is positioned in such a way that everybody walking in the hallway can see you in your bathroom if you leave the window open a bit...

Also, what is the use of a nespresso machine in your room if room service only leaves decaffinated cups behind...

It's not all bad, some positive points:

- The location in downtown Vancouver is excellent.
- Private parking is excellent (at 20$ a day).
- Beds are good (not premium, not luxurious, but good).
- Wifi worked without a problem.
- Rooms are clean.

All things considered I doubt if we would book this hotel on a next trip to Vancouver.

Great little hotel. Well priced, perfect location, well decorated and clean and friendly. Doesn't have all of the amenities of a 4 or 5 star, but a much more authentic Vancouver experience.

Room Tip: Higher might help you with street noise - which isn't much of an issue in the first place.
