Before you book, start your search with these tips when looking for the best hotels in Kelowna.

The early bird catches the worm, and the best hotel rooms, so if you are attending a concert or attending a wedding or some other big event in 2018, you should start looking for the best hotels in Kelowna now.

Here, we provide you with some handy dandy search tools and ways to choose from the best Kelowna hotels that will have you and your family saying, “best stay ever.”


1. Get an opinion

One of the most popular ways to look for Kelowna hotels and resorts is by doing an online search for any reviews or testimonials. Many head to one particular site to read about the kind of Kelowna Hotels TripAdvisor recommends. While this is an excellent way to get some advise and feedback on a particular hotel, you should always remember that each person’s experience is different and that each opinion is subjective. It also doesn’t hurt to ask those you know for their recommendations on the best hotels in Kelowna.


2. Map your stay

 If you’re flying and are looking for Kelowna hotels near the airport but also want to stay close to the venue where your concert, wedding or other event is taking place, it’s a good idea use Google Maps to:

  • Search for Kelowna airport hotels
  • Get directions from your hotel to the venue
  • See how much time it will take you to get to your event from your hotel
  • Provide methods of transportation (driving, public transit, cycling, walking)


3. Look for the extras

While in Kelowna for your event, you may not have time to go somewhere for your daily workout or a place to eat. That’s why it’s important to search what amenities the hotel provides. In winter, you may want to find Kelowna hotels with indoor pools and/or a fitness centre. In summer, look for hotels that have facilities such as a picnic area or an outdoor pool or hot tub.

Need to have a quick bite before your event? Look for a hotel that provides a breakfast buffet as part of the package, or has a restaurant, café or pub on site.


4. Ask about a rewards program

Are you a frequent traveler? Is there a particular hotel chain that you tend to book rooms from? You may want to seek accommodation in Kelowna that offers a loyalty awards program. This way, the more you stay, the more points you accumulate, and the more rewards you can earn. This can include:

  • Exclusive member rates
  • Free night stays in any of the chain’s hotels
  • Instant rewards such as room upgrades
