The Burrard

1100 Burrard St., Vancouver, British Columbia, V6Z 1Y7, Canada

Freebies abound at the fun and funky Burrard, including water in recyclable bottles, biodegradable bath products, calls to anywhere in North America, and movie channels on the huge flat-screen TVs. This former motel was originally built in the 1950s, and the current decor harkens back to that period with chunky furnishings that call to mind the glitz and glamour of Sunset Boulevard. Comfort is up to modern standards, though, with pillow-top beds and sleek chairs designed for lounging. The property wraps around a courtyard shaded by palm trees—another nod to Hollywood.
