So 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…)

If you’ve ever fancied yourself to be a bit like Indiana Jones searching for ancient artifacts or Jacques Cousteau combing the ocean floor for pirate treasure, you may be interested in a slightly more modern version of these activities – the garage sale.
That’s right. Today’s garage and yard sales are the way that modern urbanites get an opportunity to study both the current and past lifestyles through the discarded treasures of their fellow man (and more often their fellow woman).
When visiting another city, there are plenty of opportunities to see the place as the city officials wish you to – tourist attractions, scenic walks, restaurants and hotels – but attending a garage sale gives you the opportunity to view those city dwellers in their natural habitat. You may even get a glimpse of their private gardens, their pets and their friends. (more…)
This is a story that really stands out from the pack. A story of how a kind gesture can mean so much. Recently our Accent Inn Vancouver Airport hotel in Richmond BC welcomed the South Okanagan Secondary School Field Hockey Team. This in itself is not out of the ordinary as we welcome and host many school sports teams. Teams are some of our favourite regular customers. This time though, the coaches and players from the SOSS team had more than just winning the tournament on their minds. (more…)

This July Alex Fraser, son of the famous Julia Fraser (Regional Sales Manager for Accent Inns Kelowna and Kamloops) won a silver medal at the BC Summer Games in Langley. Alex played for the Thompson-Okanagan Team which finished 1st in their pool which earned them a semi-final game against Vancouver Island. In the semi-final game, they defeated Vancouver Island 8-7 (tough for Accent Inn Victoria staff routing for the Vancouver Island team). “It was a thrilling game and it was probably the best the Thompson-Okanagan Team has ever played”, said Julia Fraser, Regional Sales Manager and proud Mom. In the Championship Final for the Gold, they lost a heartbreaker to Fraser River/Delta 6-3 (a tough loss for our Accent Inn Vancouver Airport staff)
“Iron Man” Alex Fraser played all 5 games, pitched and played first base.

I am writing this from Canada where I have returned safe and sound – well maybe not quite sound. I picked up a stomach bug at the end of the trip and so the last few days weren’t that much fun. However, the doctor in Hong Kong gave me the right drugs and I am now back to 100% (or as close as a duck can come to 100%). (more…)
