ALS Cycle looking to next year

Thursday, August 28th, 2014
ALS cycle of hope

ALS Cycle of Hope Riders

There’s been lots of media attention lately for the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge which is really cool, In fact I did that challenge myself (John – editor) We want to make sure though that a hardworking group of volunteers and cyclists from the ALS Cycle of Hope are also given accolades for their efforts to raise awareness, support and research dollars for ALS. These folks did far more than just dump ice water on their heads. The following post is an excerpt from the ALS Cycle for Hope post event wrap-up for 2014.  Accent Inns has been thrilled to support these awesome volunteers!   Each year, for the past three years, the Cycle of Hope Society proudly offers a variety of exciting fundraising events and fun community/family cycling events in Kelowna and Victoria.  (more…)

Come and hang out with us this summer!

Thursday, August 7th, 2014

20140725_120046Accent Inns’ easy-to-spot, iconic blue roofs haven’t changed over the years, but just about everything beneath them has. In Victoria, we have just completed an expansion to our lobby as well as we’ve added a new breakfast room, all with a West Coast design and feel to it. Construction will begin this fall on a brand new restaurant, scheduled to open in early 2015. And all of our locations have new bedding – gone are the bedspreads which have been replaced with upgraded linens for a more modern look. (more…)

bbyEquip rooms for horses, BC hotel group says, and lower the stress of separation

VICTORIA, BC – Accent Inns is once again at the forefront of innovation in the highly-competitive world of hospitality, with the addition of one more offering to their already-specialized services: equi-accommodation, aka the provision of rooms for people and horses, together. For many years, the BC-based, family-owned hotel group catered to guests travelling with their pets, their bicycles and motorcycles. Now, horses – whether for show, racing, riding or just companionship – will be shown the same outstanding service that travellers have come to count on at Accent Inns since 1986. (more…)

Why Be a Dog Friendly Hotel?

Tuesday, January 28th, 2014

KE Sep 2009 18bSo many folks tell us how thrilled they are that Accent Inns is a dog friendly hotel, but on occasion I get asked by some, “why would you welcome dogs in your hotels?” I can understand if someone isn’t a pet owner they might not understand. It’s simple really, our pets (dogs, cats, etc…) are living breathy mammals just like you and I and being so, it’s instinctual (in my opinion) for us to form tight bonds, love our pets. (more…)

Okanagan Symphony Orchestra is Movin On Up

Wednesday, January 15th, 2014
Knowles House

Knowles House

The Okanagan Symphony Orchestra  is in motion, the Administration that is. On February 1 we will move in to our new offices at Knowles House, 865 Bernard Ave., Kelowna.
We love the house and the location, right next to a park, beautifully manicured by the City of Kelowna, where we can envision summer concerts in our more freewheeling moments.

Everything’s on the ground floor and is totally accessible, which gives us the opportunity to bring our ticketing in house, with our own space where our patrons can pick up tickets, ask questions and get to know us a bit better. (more…)
