Mother’s Day – Making it Special

Saturday, May 7th, 2016

 

Mothers day

Happy Mother’s Day

I’ve always loved Mother’s Day, it’s a time where we get to show our Mothers how much we value them, how much we appreciate what they do for us. In years gone by I always tried to make the day special for my Mum (English-speak for Mom) even though rarely in my adult life did we live close to each other.

After my children were born, making Mother’s Day special for my wife became just as important. When the boys were younger we always tried to make the day special. Even now they are adults I contact them a week or so before the big day to plan what we’ll do. (more…)

Online Reviews – How Do We Measure Up?

Wednesday, May 4th, 2016

Accent Inn recieives tripadvisor certificate of excellenceThe hotel industry has sure changed over the last decade. The early adoption of online reviews by our industry’s guests has not only taken the accommodation industry by storm but also restaurants, attractions and more.  How do we as a chain of hotels in B.C. feel about online reviews? Of course we cringe if we see someone complaining, but that’s to be expected. The key is to respond and learn from those complaints or concerns. More importantly is to make sure that we are succeeding by getting far more praise than not. (more…)

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays

Merry Christmas

Christmas is a time to be together. To celebrate those we love and remember those who have loved and supported us. As we are 2 days away from Christmas we want to say thanks to all of our wonderful customers that have been there for us this year. This is the time of year we look forward to celebrating with our families and welcoming those who have travelled and are staying while they visit their families.  For those who celebrate Hanukkah or other holidays we wish you the best of the season as well. One thing we believe in at Accent Inns is diversity. We celebrate it with our diverse staff, customers and in support of several community organizations. It’s what makes Canada so wonderful.

Speaking of wonderful, thanks to all the incredible community and not-for-profit groups we have had the privilege to work with this past year. You make it possible for so many to have a Christmas or holiday celebration. You bring families together. You make families whole. You even help create families. You bring us together with pets that offer unconditional love. You teach us about our environment. You find ways to help people get well and support those who are not. You find ways fund research so that others can get better and hold our hands when we have to say goodbye to those we love. Thanks to all of you that have helped wipe our tears, given us hugs and made us smile.

Merry Christmas to all!

BC – The Perfect Place for Water Sports

Friday, July 17th, 2015
BC beaches

Enjoy the water this summer in BC

Spring and summer this year has been hot and dry and what that means to me is getting out on, or in the water. This year my wife and I are planning a vacation close to home, which means British Columbia. It got me thinking about what water sports activities we could do around the province, and close to an Accent Inns hotel.

My first thought was Kelowna and Lake Okanagan which has hundreds of beaches and places to swim. It was then that I thought about trying something a little different this year and came up with a few water sports I haven’t tried, or at least not here at home. (more…)

Top Ten Tips For Taking Your Family On A Business Trip

Tuesday, July 14th, 2015
Family in car on road trip

Take your family on your next business trip

When my children were young, my job involved travelling extensively around Europe and North America and I was forever saying to a business colleague or client while in some strange foreign clime, “I wish my wife could see this” or, “My son Joshua, or Adam would have loved to play on that.” Looking back I don’t know why I never thought to take them, but it was probably because they all involved several expensive flights.

Social Media Bootcamps 2013

Thursday, October 17th, 2013

Steve Dotto tech expert, social media camp speaker

Steve Dotto – Tech Expert & World Famous Speaker

Do you need a kick in your…..Social Media?         If you answered yes then you should attend one of the upcoming Social Media Bootcamps travelling around the province. Victoria BC is very lucky as every May brings not only incredible floral displays but the equally visually stimulating Social Media Camp. This has become the largest social media event in Canada! But wait, there’s more…..

The guys behind this great event (Chris & Paul – their country album will be released next summer) have also put together a number of one-day workshops in select cities during the fall.

Anyone and everyone who needs, likes or just has to use Social Media should try to make it to Social Media Camp in May. Of course the organizers realize that there are folks who just can’t attend the big conference because they must attend their mother in-laws’ birthday (been there). Well for all of you they have taken the show on the road and these one day bootcamps will give you access to some of the great knowledge and training that Social Media Camp offers. (more…)

Back to School – Travel Without The Kids

Tuesday, September 10th, 2013

back to schoolOK, the children are back in school. Parents are busy dealing with getting all the back to school items their children forgot to mention they needed, sorting out what it is they want in their lunches, counselling their off-spring as they complain about who’s sitting next to them in class or on the  bus and  realizing that they have to re-learn everything they thought they would never need to know,  just so  they can help their kids with homework!

Ah, but you are grandparents or perhaps folks that decided the above path wasn’t for you. Of course you love the little “rug-rats” but whichever category you fall into, this is a very special time for you too.  You’ve had your fun with the grand-kids all summer and now it’s time to focus on you. You’ve dealt with all the lines for the really cool things to see & do but now there are no children to be seen and access to attractions is suddenly easy (and quiet).  This is your time to travel.

Get Your Blood Pumping in Kamloops

Thursday, July 25th, 2013

BC has the best golf coursesOk sure Kamloops has lots of “refined” and “relaxing” things to do while you visit. There’s the great music festivals,  the symphony, taking in a play, fly-fishing, tubing down the river, sunning on the beaches and even incredible golf courses. Although if you golf with me I wouldn’t call that relaxing (fore……).  These are all wonderful things indeed,  but what if you feel the need for a little excitement or adrenaline? Well of course you could visit one of the local ranches and try and ride an unbroken stallion (highly unlikely) but Kamloops offers several more practical options. (more…)
