We’re New…. Well Kinda

For Immediate release

Taking a good look into the mirror

Travelling in British Columbia this summer never looked so good

 August  07, 2012, Victoria, BC – Accent Inns’ easy-to-spot, iconic blue roofs haven’t changed, but just about everything beneath them has– from the renovated exteriors, updates to the interiors of all five properties —  and a very cool change in the  brand  image and story.

Now sporting refreshed exteriors in shades of, taupe, grey and green, entrance pillars refinished in natural stone and glass balconies to open up the views, Accent Inns has a warmer, more welcoming West Coast feel and is working harder than ever to live their new “stay local, stay real” tag line.

“As we finished our renovations late last year, we felt it was time to check in and see what our potential customers thought of Accent Inns,” says Mandy Farmer, president of Accent Inns. “The focus group results were shocking. Going by our name and look, many people thought we were an American owned run of the mill chain. For a company that is owned and operated by a BC family, we were heart broken. It was time to become better at telling and living our brand story.” (more…)

How To Eat Breakfast In Your PJs

Tuesday, July 10th, 2012

I have a kitchenFirst of all, I need to make something perfectly clear. I DO NOT COOK! The only reason that I have a kitchen is that it came with the house. It is full of cooking machines that simply confuse me. So, given this information, you may wonder why I am telling you about the kitchenettes at Accent Inns.

Well – I actually like to book a room with a kitchenette when I travel. Not because I am planning to create gourmet meals in my room BUT because I like to have fresh milk for my coffee, yoghurt for my breakfast and occasionally I like to make toast and fry an egg. In fact, I prefer to drink my coffee and eat my breakfast in my room while still in my PJs. (more…)

Snowshoeing at Grouse on the North shore 2011 not far from Accent Inn Burnaby hotel

Snowshoeing at Grouse on the North shore 2011

When I was a kid growing up on the East Coast one of my favourite winter activities was grabbing my brother’s wooden snowshoes, rounding up my uncle’s Springer Spaniel (Blueboy), and heading out into the woods.  “Cousin Blue” and I spent many hours cutting new trails and following the ones we had previously created.  Of course, things did not always go as planned……  (more…)

Accent Inns, a great place for your family vacation

Let's think of our pets as winter approaches

With the weather changing it’s time for all of us to not only put on our winter coats but let’s make sure to remember our pets. They to need to be protected against the elements. The story below talks a little about what we don’t want to see and what the dedicated people at the BCSPCA are forced to deal with.

The BC SPCA is the only animal welfare organization in B.C. with the authority to enforce laws relating to animal cruelty and they responded to nearly 6,000 complaints of animal cruelty and abuse last year.  Their investigations resulted in the rescue of 3,443 injured animals and the removal of 1,332 more animals from dangerous or neglectful situations.  April was one of these animals.
