East of Vancouver, lesser-known Burnaby is a brilliant jumping-off point for all the region’s delights – including forested hiking trails, art galleries and the rambling Capilano Suspension Bridge. And yet, despite its brilliant transport links and quaint neighborhoods, accommodation here can be a relative bargain – sometimes a fraction of what you’ll pay in the “big city” center. That’s an excuse to trade up – or, better yet, to stay longer – and explore more of British Columbia’s natural wonders. Whatever your budget and whatever your style, here are the best hotels in Burnaby, Canada – bookable on Culture Trip.

1. The Chateau

With all the perks of a hotel stay and all the freedom of self-catering – think full kitchens, laundry facilities and rooms to spread out in – properties run by the Chateau are the best of both worlds. Choose from one-bedroom pads, great for couples and families, all the way up to four-bedroom homes large enough for family reunions. All come with facilities for a summer burger barbecue and a handy location within striking distance of the must-see Capilano Suspension Bridge.

2. Delta Hotels by Marriott Burnaby Conference Centre

Coming to Burnaby for business? Delta Hotels by Marriott Burnaby Conference Centre lets you work in style – contemporary bedrooms with big windows overlook the city and polished desks help you prepare for that big presentation. Multiple on-site dining options mean that you don’t need to head out if you’re tired after a long day of meetings – just tuck into calamari or pork chops at the Atlas Steak + Fish restaurant, washed down with Canadian craft beers.

3. Accents Inns Burnaby

When traveling as a family, it can be handy to have a stay with a kitchenette so you can whip up snacks for little ones or early brekkies on demand. Book into Accents Inn Burnaby and you’ll not only get cooking spaces, but also homely bedrooms in the hues of the nearby Pacific Ocean. A fitness room and hot tub soothe jet-lagged muscles – while a free shuttle service lets you explore the area without having to budge your car from the comfort of the free hotel parking lot.

4. Element Vancouver Metrotown

With polished dark wood floors, sage walls, broad windows overlooking the city center and mountains, Element is a swish pick when you’re booking into Burnaby’s Metrotown. The breakfast area is especially cheery – with its sprawling outdoor terrace and a rainbow of fresh juices and bountiful hot coffees to kick off your day. A 24/7 fitness center is on hand if you need to burn off the excesses of neighboring Vancouver’s fine-dining scene. Meanwhile, an indoor saltwater pool is a dreamy spot to unwind at the end of a day’s hiking in the nearby hills.

5. Holiday Inn Express Vancouver-Metrotown

If you haven’t got a car for exploring, the Holiday Inn Express Vancouver-Metrotown is a solid pick – you’re right across the street from well-connected Metrotown station, whisking you to Downtown Vancouver in minutes. Not that you’ll necessarily want to be dashing off – an outdoor pool is a brilliant suntrap in the summer months, while a free breakfast buffet gives you the excuse to have a lazy morning over eggs and bacon. The rooms? All that you need them to be: simple, clean and comfy.

6. Hilton Vancouver Metrotown

A rambling 90ha (222acres), Burnaby’s Central Park is a meeting place for the whole community – from dog-walkers and exercisers to friends strolling with coffees. Just a couple of blocks away, the Hilton Vancouver Metrotown is so walkable you can make daily morning visits – just like the locals do. The rooms have a crisp modern feel, with cream walls, grey sofas and the occasional pops of citrus color. Don’t miss the rooftop outdoor pool – especially refreshing on steamy summer mornings.

7. Inn at the Quay
