EXPER IENCES ARE T H E MOST VALUABLE CURRENCY. CHEEKY AND MODERN THE BURRARD Vancouver, B.C. The Burrard, a 72-room former Motor Inn conveniently located in downtown Vancou- ver, retains its nifty 1950s vibe while offering a thoroughly modern boutique hotel experi- ence. Expect whitewashed walls, mid-cen- tury decor and a palm-filled inner courtyard with a firepit and ping-pong table. Smart details matter in a modest hotel, and The Burrard delivers with HDTV flat screens, in-room espresso machines, free Wi-Fi and spotless, tiled bathrooms where “This way to the pool” signs point to the tub. Borrow one of the hotel’s 16 complimen- tary cruiser bikes to peddle up to Stanley Park. Or hang the “Not Now” sign on your door and make free calls to friends anywhere in North America to tell them about your fab finds. Rates from $99.
