Accent Inns’ Explore BC Road Trip celebrates the best of British Columbia with special rates and everything from bison to biking to Butchart Gardens

Victoria, BC, June 15, 2010– From encounters with bald eagles, camels, bison or elk, to high tech experiences, some of BC’s best shopping, explorations in wine country, or outdoor adventures, Accent Inns is offering up some of British Columbia’s most unique experiences with their Explore BC rates and packages this summer.

With hotels in Victoria, Burnaby, at the Vancouver Airport, and in Kamloops and Kelowna, Accent Inns is offering packaged experiences to connect visitors with the very best of each city.  Highlights include the popular Whales and Gardens or Biking and Kayaking experiences in Victoria, the Shopaholics Experience or the PNE in Burnaby, go river rafting or BC Lions football experiences based out of the Vancouver Airport location.  In the Okanagan, guests can choose from a scenic winery tour, a round of golf for two at one of Kamloops’ top courses or a visit to the BC Wildlife Park for an encounter with bald eagles, grizzly bears, bison and elk.

Beyond packages celebrating all of these BC experiences, Accent Inns is offering guests another reason to pack their bags with their Explore BC rates for travelers who want to take a road trip and who will be staying at two or more Accent Inns locations within a three week period.  With the mantra of “the more you stay, the less you pay”, the rates range from $85 to $115 for bookings for the second, third or fourth night from June 1 to September 30. The promotion continues into the fall with Explore BC rates as low as $59 per night.

“After hosting the Olympics, British Columbia has many reasons to celebrate,” says Mandy Farmer, CEO of Accent Inns.  “This is Accent Inns’ way of showcasing our spectacular province.  With all five of our properties located in some of the most visitor friendly cities in BC, we are inviting residents of BC and visitors from nearby and afar to experience BC in a way they haven’t done before.”

Accent Inns is pet friendly, so the whole family can come along for the ride.  All five properties have also recently been rated as Four Green Key properties and are working actively to reduce the environmental footprint of each guests’ stay.

The Explore BC Rate is not valid with any other discount rate or program and is subject to availability. Travel must be completed within three weeks of the first stay. Rates are based on two adults with up to two children 16 and under.
