Here's 5 great reasons to stay at the Best Western PLUS Kelowna Hotel & Suites, in the fall.
Reason #1: Everything's Better With Wine
The Okanagan Valley has famously been called the Napa of the North... and for good reason. This is true BC wine country, and the BEST WESTERN PLUS Kelowna Hotel & Suites is in the heart of it. Imagine 60 wineries within an hour's drive with events and festivals to get your party started. Don't miss the hotel's wine tour packages for your chance to taste some of the world's best. Yep, it's okay... you're not driving, have fun!
Reason #2: Hug the Earth
When you stay here, you hug the earth the whole time. Not one of those awkward side ways hugs done with one arm and bit of shoulder patting - we're talking a full frontal, double arm bear hug.
The BEST WESTERN PLUS Kelowna Hotel & Suites has taken eco-friendly and green to new extremes. Geothermal, solar, and super advanced water saving technologies are the norm, all while you fill up your electric car for free at the Electric Vehicle charging station. Recognized at Washington DC Earth Day celebrations they said the hotel "exemplifies leading sustainability practices", and a new environmental wing is LEED Silver Certified. All this to stay they're not just blowing smoke. Not that they would... you know... 'cuz that pollutes.
A feast for the senses... Kelowna is an Eco Tourism hot spot. Early September is a nice time of year to stroll through the beautiful blooms of Elysium Gardens - make sure to bring your camera! Foodies will love learning about lavender's cooking uses at Okanagan Lavender Farm. Did you know that in the middle ages lavender was thought to ward off the plague? These days it mostly wards off the husbands, which some regard as the same thing!
Reason #4: Bring the Dog
Furry friends are welcome, and you can bring the pets too! Siamese or Shih Tzu, Lab or Terrier, the floors in the pet friendly rooms can take them all. Pets get their own goody bags too! A Golden Retriever recently left a 5 star reviews on Trip Advisor.... and we quote, "Woof, woof! Woof, woof, woof!" So you can see it's win-win for pets and owners. Even cats have left the hotel slightly less stuck up than they were before.
Reason #5: It's Not Camping!
We love camp fires as much as you do, but being near nature rather than in it has it's advantages. Like teeing off against a backdrop of green, blue and bluer.... Or walking or riding the nearly flat Mission Creek Greenway down to the lakefront. Did we mention the trail head starts just 1 kilometer away? Afterwards, refuel back at the hotel in the 97 Street Social House. Or sample the fine menu at ORA Kitchen & Bar - a great steak and wine pairing has never been easier to find.
Whatever the season, the BEST WESTERN PLUS Kelowna Hotel & Suites is the perfect launch pad for your Okanagan adventure.
