Stayed at the Burrard because of it's price point and the fact it is central in downtown Vancouver plus the fact we could borrow bikes for free!
Most hotels in Vancouver are high end and pricey and as we needed to stay somewhere for 4 nights, we needed somewhere more affordable. If you want something like a high end 5* hotel with all it's extras, this is not for you. Burrard offers simple, no fuss and comfortable rooms with a motel feel but we really enjoyed our stay here.
We were on the 4th floor and we asked to be away from the main road and we slept like babies. Couldn't hear a peep. Rooms are compact but comfortable and we had a king-size bed. Bathrooms are clean, practical and also compact. They give you 2 bottles of water in the fridge and to be more eco-friendly, they encourage you to fill up with drinking water on the lobby floor - we loved this as we are water guzzlers and it was great to be able to fill up when we needed to.
They have Brooklyn Cruiser bikes to hire on a first come first served basis but there always seemed to free ones so no issue. Loved cycling around Vancouver and one of the Burrard staff explained the best route to cycle the Seawall. It was amazing, one of the best cycling routes and the weather was just perfect. Appreciate the hotel having bikes available for this.
There's no restaurant attached except a small cafe - there are so many fab places to eat in Vancouver for breakfast, lunch and dinner, there's no need to have a restaurant at the Burrard! Small cafe next door was good for coffee and we grabbed a quick bite for breakfast on the day we left.
We found the staff to be really helpful, very responsive on email as well as in person. The only negative I would say is that we sometimes found the room a bit stuffy as the windows only opened a certain distance and there's no AC and ventilation was not the best. However, I think the hotel has addressed this as there was a fan in the cupboard which we used once. It helped but in general, I prefer more airy rooms.
