This is also a bicycle friendly place where you can store your treasured possession in your room and the hotel provides a bike washing station and tools for tuning or repairing your bike.

Tips For Staying In Kelowna

Choosing A Hotel in Kelowna

Quick Summary of Most Popular Areas
Downtown Kelowna: dining, shopping and superb accommodations, everything you'd expect from a world-class city
Kelowna Airport (YLW): conveniently located just north of the downtown core, only about a 20 minute drive


What's the deal with Kelowna?

Staying in Kelowna is a treat for those who enjoy drinking wine and playing golf (there are 17 courses to test your every nerve). For those that do not enjoy wine and golf, you need to get your priorities straight because you are missing out! Kelowna is a true Canadian gem with its hot summers and relatively mild winters. Downtown Kelowna is located in the Okanagan Valley, a name truly synonymous with fine Canadian wine. Local vineyards are literally a 10 minute drive from the downtown core.


If you are flying in and out of the city, the airport is located just over 10km north of the city's core. The closest Kelowna Airport hotels are actually more or less the same hotels found in the downtown core, so you'll find yourself right in the middle of all the action.
