I have an Australian Shepherd called Finnegan – Finn for short – he’s a great dog; friendly, well-behaved and adores everyone. I rarely take him with me on out-of-town trips though because finding a hotel that takes dogs is tough, if they say they accept pets, it usually just means they ‘tolerate’ them. I thought finding a hotel that actively welcomed them would be well-nigh impossible. That is until I checked out Accent Inns – these guys seriously love dogs, as their advertising says they really do speak Pekinese; although Finn is not fluent in Pekinese he certainly understands the sentiment and approves by vigorously wagging his little nub of a tail (Australian Shepherds don’t have full tails).

I like to think of myself as a savvy traveller – I look for a good sized, clean and comfortable room at a good price and if I can get a suite with a kitchen, or kitchenette all the better. That’s where Accent Inns score big-time; they’re like a mini home-from-home where I can rustle up some food. Whether I’m away on business, or pleasure, it’s no fun eating out every night – the novelty soon wears off and the cost these days can be exorbitant. So, eating in your room can save a few bucks and also be very rewarding – but how do you make it special? (more…)
It’s tough being away from your children on Halloween, but for many of Accent Inns’ business travellers it’s often a reality. So, how do you handle a long distance Halloween with your kids? Do you call them before they leave and then again once they’ve returned with bags of candy? (more…)
Many British Columbians don’t know that the BC Cancer Foundation is the largest funder of cancer research in the province and that research IS working! B.C. has the lowest incidence rates for all cancers combined, the lowest rates of cancer mortality in Canada and the best breast cancer outcomes in the world. But there is still more work to be done.

Thanksgiving in Canada may have started in the 1500’s on the east coast but here in BC we take good advantage of this wonderful holiday weekend. There are plenty of events going on in our local communities, wine & food festivals, even a marathon in Victoria BC. You’ll find lots of opportunities to volunteer as many community centers, churches and food banks offer special thanksgiving meals for those less fortunate. (more…)
Many people these days are doing a super job creating and maintaining a fitness regime while they are at home. They work out before, during or after work. Some at home and some in their local fitness centers. We’ve learned from many of our community partners that fitness is one key way to hold off or repair the damage done by many of the chronic diseases that our society suffers from. But what happens when you go on the road? (more…)
