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…)

Are you a fan of the X-Files?  Did you know the original TV series was filmed in and around Vancouver B.C.?  Apparently because of the “dark” nature or “feel” that the show had, the grey weather that Vancouver often experiences was perfect.  How about that, it actually paid to be rainy! The series was filmed in many different locations around southern B.C. (originally) but made it’s home at Bridge Studios right across the Street from the Accent Inn Burnaby hotel.  Although the Accent Inn never had the opportunity to host either of the Stars, the General Manager and staff met many of the “villains”, if you can call monsters and aliens villains. I myself even had the opportunity to meet one of the actors staying at the Burnaby hotel, who thanks to very cool make-up, played two completely different “creatures” in two different episodes.
