“Great location, courteous staff, good value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

I found this hotel by using tripadvisor. This location is outstanding. Within walking distance of good restaurants on Davie Street, bus stops and Yaletown attractions. Staff is extremely courteous and helpful with directions. Very easy to get to Granville Island Public Market,the Orpheum theater, and Stanley Park by using buses (22 and 19).
We plan to revisit Vancouver, and will stay here again.

Room Tip: Get a King size bed room away from Burrard Street for a more quiet atmosphere.

The Burrard is a fun, mod, hipster kind of hotel with a 1950's retro feel. It is simple and clean, with a sense of humor and an environmental edge. The lobby and elevator are small, but get the job done. The rooms have nice decor with cool silver bean bag foot stools and other fun accoutrements like a nespresso machine! The courtyard was beautiful and nice to sit and read or drink some coffee. I really liked the free bike rental, though my husband preferred to walk around. Convenient to have the attached cafe and a 7-11 next door. The best part was after arriving very early into the city, the helpful desk clerk checked us in to our room (early-because it was ready) so we could really enjoy our full day in Vancouver!

Iconic Hotel, reminds me of the 'Batteries not Included' movie
- my sincere hope is that it will never be developed on by the monstrosities that are popping up around it.
Our room was clean & spacious, if not a bit warm, toiletries were lovely & in keeping with Hotel era/style.
Car parking is worth it (however need clarity on how to get in it)
Lovely late check outs
Disappointments:
Noisy (early) developments, Lackluster Air Conditioning
& Lack of breakfast: cup of coffee & muffin does not equate breakfast.

We had a really nice experience with The Burrard. The hotel has a personality and we loved it. The price is reasonable, the staff friendly and the rooms are very clean,comfortable and well maintained. Their location is also excellent. When we go back to Vancouver, we will definitely be staying there again.

We were looking for a reasonably priced hotel in walking distance of many places of interest to us during our visit. This place is it! It's in the heart of everything, nice clean and modern rooms. The front desk people were terrific offering a wealth of suggestions, touring, eating, getting around, everything. Hats off to them as many hotel staff at other places aren't half as helpful. We were able to park two motorcycles securely in their garage and they gave us directions when we left. We will be back when we have more time to enjoy Vancouver. Thank you.

When the constuctions around the hotel (one site in the back, one site to the right) are finished, the hotel is the best you can get in vancouver!!
It's not the hotels mistake, but the noise hits quite early i the morning during the weekdays.
I would stay again, no question!!

The Burrard is really an excellent discovery for a budget visit to Vancouver. It is very well located (right opposite the hospital on Burrard Street) and within an easy walk of the sea front at Canada Place (15 minutes downhill all the way from the hotel... Gently up on the way back). Additionally it is very close to the stop-offs of the Big Bus tours that drive around Vancouver, which makes local transport pretty simple.

Built in the style of a traditional iconic US style Motel, the Burrard seems almost out of place between the increasing high-rise towers all around but actually it is an oasis of calm to be enjoyed for as long as possible. The rooms are all arranged around a central, lushly planted, court yard right up to the top 4th floor. Each room around is well sized with a very comfortable king sized bed (our room) and bathroom with a good warm shower. A portable air-con unit, fridge and coffee maker are all included as is the good fast free broadband wifi. The front desk team deserve a particular "thanks" for being always cheerful and helpful for all requests.

I give a big "well done" to the photographer who provided the images used on the Burrard website and promo documents - they perfectly reflect everything that the hotel strives to achieve. Brilliant!!

Well done The Burrard and many thanks for providing all we needed during our stay in Vancouver.

Room Tip: Ask for a "quiet" room not at the front of the hotel.
