Kelowna BC Holiday Inn Express

We've been given a very pleasant room that's actually a suite in the Holiday Inn Express Kelowna Hotel and Conference Centre.

The only drawback is that it isn't the hotel we were trying to book. Because their Internet site wasn't working, Brian called Intercontinental to book the Westbank (West Kelowna) BC Holiday Inn, just a five-minute drive from his brother's house.

Instead, the phone rep found a hotel with the name Kelowna in it and booked us into that one, giving us a 20-minute drive each way through downtown Kelowna, quite the bustling city.

All's well that ends well, although we'll be letting IC know that we're not amused, and we should be in good shape for a dash over the Coquihalla Highway and the Trans-Canada in the morning as we wend our way back to Birch Bay to tear out our remaining kitchen counter tops.

A very pleasant visit with Dennis and his family (including two granddaughters who have grown lots since we last saw them as one reaches her 12th birthday soon) made it all very worthwhile.
