Call us psychic*, but we can kind of read your mind. You want to know what’s going on with Hotel Zed Tofino in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. It’s a fair question and we’ll always be honest with you! So let’s just cut to the chase, shall we?

We don’t really know when we’ll be opening. (Ok you caught us: not psychic.) We had originally said July, but that was last Fall. 2019 was a lifetime ago and, honestly, the world is different now! We’ll be ready in July, but whether we open our doors is another story. While we can’t wait to show Tofino and the world the amazing hotel we’ve created for you, we actually can wait. And we will wait. We’re going to be listening closely to the advice of provincial and community experts and leaders. Tofino is a small, isolated community and we are not going to do anything that would risk putting pressure on their healthcare system. We’ll open when Tofino is ready to welcome visitors again.

We do have some fun updates for you! We got a new set of wheels for Hotel Zed Tofino! Look at this beauty! It’s a 1969 Chevrolet Caprice Kingswood Estate wagon—one of only 286 of its kind made in Canada. This old school station wagon will serve as a shuttle for our Hotel Zed guests, and you’re gonna love the vintage rear-facing bench seat in the back. If you thought the Delorian was the de facto car time machine, you might be wrong. Just one look at this wagon takes us right back to the 70’s! Now all we need is a name…

Are you ready to boogie? Hotel Zed Kelowna has a mini disco and it’s always a guest favourite! You better pack your dancing shoes, because we’ve taken that concept to Hotel Zed Tofino with our groovy disco room! This room has everything you’d expect: disco balls, a glitter wall, a killer sound system and super comfy seating. But why would you sit down when you can be tearing it up on the light up, interactive LED dance floor?! This will cure your Saturday night fever any day of the week.

We promise to keep you updated as we learn more about our opening date, or if we have any other updates too exciting to keep to ourselves! Make sure you follow us on Facebook and Instagram so you can continue to stay on top of all things Hotel Zed. And if you’ve got any questions, drop us a line. We’re always happy to hear from our rebel friends!

*PS: did you know we’re going to have a psychic room in our lobby?!
