Feb. 16, 2012, Victoria, BC - With British Columbia's capital city set to celebrate its sesquicentennial anniversary later this summer, one of Victoria's most beloved waterfront hotels, Inn at Laurel Point, has joined in on the festivities by launching a year-long stay-and-play package - priced at $150 and highlighting all things local.
"With Canada's oldest Chinatown, the second-highest number of restaurants per capita of all North American cities and views of the wild Pacific Ocean whichever way you turn, Victoria is truly an extraordinary place to live and visit," said Ian Powell, general manager of Inn at Laurel Point. "And when it comes to marking our city's major milestones, such as the 150th anniversary, you better believe that all of us here at the Inn, a locally owned and operated hotel, will be doing it up in style."
Those wanting to don a party hat and help celebrate Victoria's landmark birthday are invited to take advantage of Inn at Laurel Point's new 150th Package, priced at $150 per night (based on double occupancy) and available from now through Dec. 31, 2012, (excluding Christmas Day and Boxing Day) subject to availability.
For the best deal, stay from now through April 30 or from Oct. 1 through Dec. 31 to receive:
One night's accommodation in a Laurel Wing room
A $40 food credit at AURA, the hotel's on-site restaurant that features local flavours and ingredients
15 per cent off a Victoria Harbour Urban Kayak Exploration with Ocean River Adventures
A top secret (Foursquare compatible) list of the best things to do, see and taste when visiting Victoria
