A night out. Think about that for a minute, when is the last time you got to take a night out. Hopefully it wasn’t that long ago, but for most I feel like it hasn’t happened for a while. For myself personally, it had been a few months since I got a night out, a break from motherhood, and some time with girls friends. Knowing that a lot of you are likely on the same page, we wanted to document our stay, encourage you to take a night out to yourself soon.

Thank you so much to The Burrard for partnering on this post. All views and opinions of the hotel and our stay are always my own.

History of The Burrard Hotel

The Burrard Hotel originally opened it’s doors in 1956 as The Burrard Motor Inn. It had mid-century colour combined with west coast vibes, originally just catering to the automobile culture after a few years expanded to offer more for travellers. This is when their lush garden courtyard and cocktail bar. Many guest enjoyed their drinks in style in this space that escaped the city feel.

Now, six decades later, The Burrard Hotel has seen renovations which refreshed it’s lobby, rooms and amenities. With the renovation came a much more contemporary feel, while still holding onto it’s retro mid-century style. With the blooming courtyard that makes you feel like you are in a tropical place, and the chic and modern rooms The Burrard offers a look a feel that you can’t get anywhere else in the city.

About Our Stay

When we first arrived at the hotel it was such a pleasant surprise to find out that they have their own parking stalls, right at the hotel. You can access their private lot by pulling up to the front of the hotel and checking in to obtain your room key card. As we went up the elevator and exited out to find our room we were taken back by the gorgeous courtyard. I instantly felt like I was away on a tropical vacation, despite the Vancouver weather.

We got a look inside two of their rooms, one king bed and the other with two twins. Both room had a very minimalist feel with bright white walls, modern furtniture and one statement art piece. The bathroom followed the same feel with a crisp white tile, tub and curtains. I couldn’t help but notice the Nespresso machines, where you can make and enjoy complimentary Nespresso during your stay.

Both the coffee shop, Elysian Coffee, and Burgoo Bar + Restaurant that are located just underneath The Burrard Hotel were equally delicious. You really don’t have to go to far to feel well fed, rested and relaxed when staying here. We enjoyed dinner at Burgoo Bistro after we checked in and got settled. In the morning we had a chance to try Elysian coffee, they offer a few breakfast options, pastries, locally made juice and of course delicious coffee.

The best part, I slept like a baby. Their rooms are equipped with cushion top mattresses and high quality bedding to ensure a good nights sleep. We were not disturbed by any noises from the city and found the atmosphere so relaxing. Waking up in the morning and being about to open your door to the garden oasis was a cherry on top. It’s nice to have the option to easily to pop outside and get fresh air, without needing to go far from your room.

  • Excuse the language but...... We fucking did it!! Holy crap. 21.1 Kms you guys. We are pumped!

I had so so many thoughts and doubts going on in my head before and even during this run and I’m so glad I didn’t listen to them. This was a goal of mine (even though I should have trained more, only three 7 km runs leading up 🙊😳) that I now get to put a big check mark on. Heck yah!

James turned into some sort of wizard and passed the finish line at the 1 hour 50 minute mark and I made it over around 2 hours and 45 minutes. We did it babe!!!! #seawheeze #seawheeze2019 #halfmarathon #lululemon #vancouverisawesome

  • Happy Friday friends. Hoping you all get a chance to grab a drink and find a sweet spot to relax this weekend. I’ll be thinking of you as I complete a half marathon tomorrow 😅😅😅 As we head into the weekend I wanted to give a cheers to some ladies who inspire, encourage and motivate me in this space.

Motivated by @pyurvodkasoda (Power Your Own Unique Reality) they’ve asked who is my #PYURinspiration, so here we go. — @vancitybusinessbabes Danielle, Sydnee and Nancy are a powerhouse team who constantly are encouraging me and so many other ladies in business. I love how they have taken their passion and grown it across Canada and into the US with @businessbabesco — @ilikeherstylevancouver reaches out to me in their early days and have given me the opportunity to share a little piece of my heart continually in their issues as a contributor. Every issue I love how community focused they are, networking up a storm and creating such beautiful content for their community. — @jamprco is a local PR company that I’ve had the pleasure of working with many times and their love for local and community is empowering.

These are just a few bossbabes that inspire me with what they are doing within this local community and on Instagram. I want to challenge you to also share who inspires you, tag them (or a few people) below who are constantly inspiring and encouraging you in business and life. Let’s make some peoples days and share the ❤️❤️❤️
  • I literally LOVE every photo from this recent shoot with @juliechristinephotography so be prepared for more.⁠
⁠
Also, this photo was taken to show off the bling bling (one bling for each ring) on my finger. Both these pieces are made from Canadian diamonds and created at the Park Royal @lugarojewellers location.

I’ll share info in my stories tomorrow, let me know if you have any questions below. #ad #cwjwpartner #lugarojewellers
  • Do you ever have those moments in the midst of parenting and you stop for a second and think “this, this is a moment they are going to remember.” It’s usually in those everyday moments, ones we do over and over. The other night, while James was watering the garden and the girls were running around I had that feeling of, “this is their childhood, this is what they will remember.”
  • It’s Friday night and I’m sharing photos on my stories of how @juliechristinephotography captured my butt in these pants. Could be worse I guess 🤣🤣 PS the jeans are the curvy mom jeans from @americaneagle // @shopsevenoaks and I really do love them, except for when my butt gets hungry for them. The end.
