Travel Deal for August 21, 2013

vicky vacay deal of the dayWhen it comes to hotels, Vancouver has it all. From the most opulent places to stay like Fairmont Pacific Rim, to trendy spots like the Loden and Opus, to budget options that still retain a good level of service like Rosedale on Robson. To the mix is one of the finest and most refined boutique properties in Canada, the gorgeous Wedgewood Hotel.

In the middle of downtown, the Wedgewood is well known for its outstanding spa and romantic restaurant, Bacchus. The luxury Relais & Chateaux hotel — the only such property in Vancouver — features 83 rooms with all the comforts discerning travellers expect from a sophisticated accommodation.

With the Special Occasion Champagne Package, guests can discover the best of the Wedgewood. The deal starts at $390 per night and includes:

  • One night in a luxury room
  • European Continental breakfast for two
  • $125 dinner credit to be used at Bacchus
  • A bottle of Champagne upon your arrival

Visitors can reduce their cost to $347 by choosing a bottle of sparkling wine instead of Champagne.

The nightly rates are in effect until September 30, 2013, and then drop to $340 (Champagne) and $297 (sparkling wine). Spots Wildlife in Vancouver

You don’t have to venture deep into the wild to get a taste of west-coast wildlife. Vancouver’s Stanley Park has a surprising amount of creatures within its 1,001 acres. You’ll find eagles, blue herons, migratory small birds, and some four-legged animals scurrying about. Outdoors Columnist Tricia Edgar went on a search for what she could find inside the park and wrote about her discoveries.

Edgar writes: “Stanley Park is a fascinating fusion of forest and water environments. During low tide, head to the seashore and you’ll also be able to glimpse many of the creatures that live along Vancouver’s waterfront, such as the purple sea star. Move into the forest, and you’ll hear tiny rufous hummingbirds drinking from salmonberry flowers, and the songs of migratory birds such as the Swainson’s Thrush as they move through the city to the mountains, rivers, and forests beyond.”
