The Burrard1100 Burrard St, Vancouver, BC V6Z 1Y7
If you’re looking for motel-chic just steps away from Robson Street, this playfully retro hotel will definitely fit the bill. First opened in 1956 as the Burrard Motor Inn, the centrally located hotel has seen a series of upgrades in recent years but still retains its kitschy-cool vibe. Rooms are equipped with modern amenities – Nespresso machines, flat screen TVs, free Wi-Fi – and there are loaner bikes available for guests who want to explore the city on two wheels. In keeping with the motel feel, rooms face out onto an open-air courtyard with tropical palm trees and colourful loungers.
