First opened in 1956, downtown Vancouver’s Burrard Hotel has a long and storied past. Of course, back then we weren’t yet a super-cool “retro” hotel… we were just plain ol’ super-cool.

In 1956, Elvis Presley had his first hit, people went crazy for non-stick frying pans and the fabulous “Burrard Motor Inn” opened its doors to the world. New owners planted the first garden courtyard in the late 1960s, while the Greenhouse Lounge hosted cocktail hour, extramarital affairs and swank wood panels from 1982-2006.

Fast-forward to the present, and The Burrard’s been put through a massive renovation with new rooms, new courtyard, new attitude – the works. But rest assured, we kept our cool

The new boutique hotel mixes retro influences with modern design touches, slick in-room amenities and a refreshing dose of character. Our owners brought a whole new vibe to Vancouver’s hotel scene, and a whole new focus on guests. It’s like Melrose Place, only there’s no pool to drown in.
