Excellent value, excellent location, excellent staff.
Rooms are small yes, TV is BIG. Bathroom is small yes, but it has a full bathtub and nice complimentary toiletries. Bed was very comfortable.
Walls are thin and there were drunk idiots yelling and banging all night, but this can happen at any hotel. I only stayed one night.
I asked for a late check-out for 9pm, the cost was VERY reasonable.
If I get to Vancouver again I will definitely stay here. Shame it was cold and wet I would have loved to try the bikes out.

I live in Whistler and have stayed in a number of different hotels in Vancouver. This one is fantastic. The staff were super friendly and helpful, the location was convenient, the value was exceptional, and everything was so new and clean. Best of all were the retro design and catchy elements throughout the property. Bikes to borrow, chic furniture, entertaining sayings in the rooms, free North American long distance, TVs loaded with movies, nespresso machines ... this'll definitely be the hotel I choose from now on.

Room Tip: Ask the front desk agent if you want an especially quiet room.

What's not to love? The Burrard is in a great location…tons of places to eat, drink and shop nearby. The staff is super friendly and very helpful. The rooms are spotlessly clean and the bed/pillows are so comfy. The courtyard is beautiful, but we couldn't take advantage of it due to weather at the time. The Burrard even has bikes that you can rent for FREE to take a spin around town. There is free wifi and even a Mac with internet access in the lobby so you can surf and print for free. Plus, there's free long distance…which was great since we were traveling from the US.
The only downside is the street noise. The windows are incredibly insulating which helps, but Burrard St is quite busy 24/7. So, if you're a light sleeper, I'd recommend some earplugs…which I never travel without anyway.
We like The Burrard so much that we stayed there at the beginning and the end of our 7 day ski trip to Whistler.

Pick this hotel last minute so we could go out for the evening Vancouver without the worry of driving or cabs!

I must admit the price and the cool Website won me over!

The room was exceptionally clean, the staff phonominal and location couldn't be beat!

The retro decor was a nice twist with very cool signs and roof garden!

Would I stay again or recommend to others? absolutely!

The rooms are very clean and comfortable. The staff was very nice and helpful. The hotel is only a couple of corners from Robson street, so there is a lot of restaurant and bar close by. The hotel have been renovated not so long ago so the design is up to date and there is a courtyard for evening relaxation.

You also get free internet, coffee, long distance call ( Canada, US) and bottle of water.

The Burrard Hotel is located close at a walking distance from most of the places you'll be willing to explore in downtown Vancouver. The design is great in a very casual, comfortable and wise way. This is a particular hotel, do not expect big mirrors on the walls, flowered rugs and golden lamps... But, to be honest, thanks God! It's 50's inspired design it's only a wonderful way to accomodate today's traveler's necessities: spacious rooms at an affordable price (this is to say that they're not huge rooms, but they're bigger than the average non-grand-luxe hotel rooms), free wifi (we specially appreciated this after having to pay abusive prices to use wifi at 5* hotels!!), complimentary whater (idem as mentioned before; in 5* hey normally charge you between 3 and 5$ per bottle), and even a Nesspresso caffee machine with complimentary coffee capsules. There was also a computer in the hall that could be used for free and even prints were complimentary (we could print our boarding tickets, for example, in the easiest way).
People in the reception were very friendly. Thank you and congratulations!
The only down side is that the room was a bit noisy; Burrard Street is a pretty busy street and the hotel has only three or four floors, so all rooms are quite close to the street level. However, if you don't have a very light sleep or you're just staying a couple of nights, all the above-mentioned plus points make up for this...
whenever we have the chance to go back to Vancouver, we will certainly stay here!

Room Tip: Maybe there are some rooms in the back, not facing the street. I am not sure. It would be worthy to...
