Make Hotel Zed your Pride Weekend homebase
Pride is coming up fast and Hotel Zed is ready to celebrate! Everyone is welcome to be their own unique selves at Hotel Zed. We’re proud to be allies to our LGBTQ+ team members and guests and we want everyone to feel safe at our hotels. All genders, orientations and orientations belong here. We celebrate diversity, inclusivity, accessibility and uniqueness all year long, and Pride is no exception! Join us in celebrating all rebels during Pride month!
Kelowna Pride kicks off June 15-22 this year. As one of the city’s most eclectic accommodations located right in the middle of the weekend’s events, Hotel Zed is the ultimate hot spot to make your home base. On Thursday, the 2019 Trans Pride March and Social starts the Kelowna Sails, which is a two minute walk from Zed (time it!). Join us in support of our Trans family, and don’t forget to wear your pinks and blues. Closer still is the Pride March & Festival in the Park on Saturday, June 20. “The Park” in question is City Park, which is across the street from Hotel Zed!
Whether you want to nip back to your room for a costume change, rest your feet while watching the festivities from one of our rooftop patios, enjoy an air-conditioned dance break in our mini disco …you can be back in the action in no time. You can cool off into the outdoor pool or heat things up in the hot tub! or lurk around the lounge enjoying the hip surroundings.Get into a ping pong tourney, and maybe rent our free roller skates for a zoom about town (or at least down the street). And because we all know the party don’t stop when the festival wraps up at 4pm, you can hit the town comfortably knowing that all of downtown Kelowna’s best bars and restaurants are just moments from your door at Hotel Zed.
Our Victoria location is also amping up for Pride, to be held June 30 – July 7th. The city will be bright and alive, and so will we. Although this Hotel Zed isn’t part of the parade route, it’s still uber easy to get around. No, we don’t have Uber here yet. But we do have retro VW & Chevy shuttle vans. Even cooler. They can get you around free on a first-come, first-served basis. Or how about using one of our free bikes (like a tandem bike) longboards or penny boards? Whether you wanna hitch a ride to the Parade, the Big Gay Dog Walk, the AMAZING annual Dragball Game, or any of the awesome Pride parties that has Victoria hopping, we’ll get you there in style, fam. (Does that all sound awesome? Check out Victoria Pride for all the event deets!)
Need to chill out after the parade? Make a splash in our pool, hot tub or head down our giant, hot pink ‘Zedinator’ waterslide. No need to be a kid to enjoy those to the max. Plus, you’ll only have to get to the lobby in the morning to enjoy Victoria’s fave morning-after breakfast at The Ruby Restaurant.
Come on – embrace the rebel in you. At Hotel Zed, we encourage you to be yourself, have a blast and enjoy Pride Week to the max. Get your booking locked in now.
