Victoria Advanced Technology Council’s newest award for Creative Excellence recognizes a Greater Victoria company that has demonstrated excellence in innovation and entrepreneurship with a commitment to creativity.

It seems our ridiculously fun & eclectic hip hotel really is like nothing you've ever seen before! People love this crazy idea of starting a funky hotel that was actually affordable, down-to-earth, fun, playful and approachable.

Designed to recognize the creators, innovators and entrepreneurs outside of the typical tech industry, Hotel Zed is thrilled to receive this prestigious honour.

So you see, we aren't the only ones who think Hotel Zed is a rebel against the ordinary!

"It feels great to be recognized for our innovative tourism product and experience development" said Mandy Farmer, President and CEO of Accent Inns and Hotel Zed. "We were the perfect fit for the type of creativity they are looking to showcase; funky, interesting and out of the box for our industry thanks to our bright colour scheme and authentic retro touches".

The event and award recognition took place on June 26, 2015 at VIATeC's 14th Annual Awards Dinner at the Victoria Conference Centre.

It was a fantastic evening and really great to see what other awesome things local companies are creating. A big shout out to our fellow nominees for the creativity award category including Abeego Designs, Creole Jewellery Design, Is this Menswear? and Pacific School of Innovation and Inquiry. Keep on innovating!

New this summer:

Longboards! That's right. Those super cool giant cousins of a skateboard are now available for rentals at Hotel Zed!

Victoria's coolest free hotel shuttle just gained a sibling! Introducing Bubba! Our second 67' VW Camper Bus. If you haven't seen him yet, expect to see that radical paint job cruising' the streets of downtown Victoria.
