allright, in typical lazy city boy fashion, i've left accommodations to the last minute! Laughing

i just called the accent inn on maple st (the usual host hotel) and they have 1 room left for the 13th (a big, expensive room at that). the lady there said there may be cancellations but she cant guarantee it.

there should be a few of us coming over from the mainland and ideally it's always nice to all stay at the same place so we may need anywhere from 2-4 rooms

with that said...can anyone recommend a good alternative? has there been another host hotel in the past that you've used that you were happy with? clean & safe to park our cars is important. reasonably priced is good. close to all the action is good too!

not too worried as i'm sure it'll all work out regardless, but let us know what y'all think and if you have any info/ideas!! Cool

Alright Silas and anyone else looking for a hotel room



I got a group rate at the Comfort Inn (The one mentioned above)

$139 a night
King sized Beds
Hot Breakfast included
Liquor store/pub with outdoor Patio in the same building (Reds pub, Food is good and its not overly busy, I frequent it a fair amount Very Happy )

I was talking to Greg McEwan (Sales Manager) He works Monday-friday, and he is the only one there who knows about this

Ask for him and say something along the lines of Volkswagen show or something like that and he will get it, If you planning on booking this weekend ask them to leave a message for him giving the room rate and info and he will deal with it on monday (The joy of setting this up a week in advance haha)

Or let me know by the end of the weekend and I will talk to him for you guys on monday!

Hotels #1-250-382-4400



Also, Let me know which Hotel you guys prefer! I have no problem switching up host hotels for you guys Smile

I have a question from a Vancouver member that i thought i knew the answer to, but after reading this...

Quote:
will be doing a cruise in the afternoon, meeting at Clover Point at 3:30pm.


We are starting the cruise at clover point at 3:30, right? not ending up at clover point at 3:30.

pretty sure it's start at 3:30, but wanted to confirm
