Wednesday, June 26th, 2013

Accent Inns Sales Team – L-R Kim Jones, Donna Price, Helen Wright & Karen England

When you work for a hotel company you get used to customers coming to your place of business so it was a very nice change for the Accent Inns Sales Team to visit some of our customers at their place of business. We also had the chance to experience what many of our RV rental guests do as they leave our hotel at Vancouver Airport to take on the trip to northern BC and beyond.

On May 8th 4 of our Sales Team and 4 of our ducks took to the road in 2 campers from Fraserway RV Rentals.  We travelled from Vancouver to Whitehorse visiting a number of towns along the way.  What we discovered it that we live in a very big province filled with amazing scenery and incredibly friendly towns and villages.  (more…)

The Accent Inn Victoria, Open for Business

 Fire Takes Restaurant But Not Hotel Spirit

This past Thursday night, April 11th, a suspicious fire did irreparable damage to the ABC country restaurant located at the Accent Inn Victoria, 3233 Maple St. Fire is certainly something feared by everyone but even more so when it comes to a large complex like an apartment or hotel. When the call came into the Accent Inn front desk, the staff immediately followed the procedures they had been taught. Calls went out to their management and staff and evacuation procedures quickly began with police and fireman joining to assist. The restaurant being closed, luckily was empty with no staff present there.

People and pets had the opportunity to stay warm in waiting BC Transit Busses. After rooms had been cleared and head-counts taken the hotel staff proceeded to secure rooms at other local hotels for all guests, some of whom were still in their pajamas. (more…)

The Plugged In Traveller

Tuesday, March 26th, 2013

There was once a time when the only high-tech device in my suitcase was a travel alarm clock.  I rarely travelled outside North America with any other electronic devices as the difference in voltage and plug types made it a big hassle.  In those days I travelled pretty light.

Times have changed.   Now I can’t leave home (even for a weekend) without a whole suitcase full of gadgets that I somehow believe that I cannot live without.

The Travel Alarm Clock is no longer required as many of my other devices have that functionality and most hotels do offer wake-up calls so I have that base covered.  But why do I need all these other things?  Are they just toys or do I really need them for survival? (more…)
