It's like you walked into a hotel placed in a hipster version of the movie Grease. This place definitely has swag, albeit being a touch ikea-esque in decor.
Room is cosy and functional with very good usage of space. Not much luggage area tho so beware if (you're like me) and seldom travel light.
Beds very comfy. Good lighting in the room, and free water and wifi (#win). 7-eleven just downstairs (#doublewin).
Breakfast is coffee/tea/juice and a muffin/scone/someothersmallpieceoffood so don't pay extra for the breakfast and eat elsewhere at the (many) great eateries in the area.
Service was good but not exceptional - dont expect a bellman to help you with your bags. This place knows how to give only as far as is needed - perhaps that's how they keep the price so reasonable?
The Burrard designers clearly didn't think bathroom counter top space was very important btw. All you have is a sink. For one. Which kinda works in the functionality of the hotel, but not for my husband and I who both like some mirror space when brushing our teeth.
Delivering where it matters most (proper heating, bedding, cleanliness, location, price), I would recommend The Burrard to anyone in Vancouver for a short stay. Couples looking to stay for a longer period of time (who travel with at least 4 pairs of shoes each - you know who you are), you may want to consider another place simply because it will take too long to get ready with the tiny bathroom, and limited space.
