Monday, January 28th, 2013

If you are visiting Vancouver this week be sure to visit Granville Island as the PuSh Festival is in its final week (ending on February 3rd).

This is the first major festival of the season and a very good excuse to check out what Granville Island has to offer – and it does offer a lot. From the famous Granville Island market, to artisan bakeries, stylish boutique shops. There is also no shortage of entertainment for all the family, the famous Granville Island Buskers which are a staple for entertainment and they are really really good, you will be very entertained.

For further reading and more in depth information on Granville Island…please take a look at this older blog entry…it should help navigate you as to what is on offer there… http://www.sunsetinn.com/blog/?p=64

The Island is also a good spot for dining, you have plenty to choose from most notably The Sandbar which boasts a great balcony area where you can enjoy your meal with an excellent view…and check out Edible Canada too, they have a sweet location right in the hub of Granville Island…perfect to watch the people and the day go by…to reach Granville Island is very easy, roughly a 20 minute journey, you head down Thurlow St and catch the False Creek Ferry, its easy, its cute and its cash only! Ask the Front desk at the Sunset Inn & Suites for further details there…

SAD SACK @ PuSh FESTIVAL
We want to highlight this particular show as it involves Kris Elgstrand who is the husband of our very own Sunset Inn Front desk extraordinaire Arabella Bushnell!!!

The show is a pretty quirky melancholy take on living in Vancouver, it explores the city via the medium of drawings, writings, thoughts and libertations, it was conceived during Vancouver’s darkest and dreary months of fall and winter…hence the title of Sad Sack.

November renovations.

Wednesday, November 2nd, 2011

Hello everyone!

We hope you all had a fantastic Halloween and have managed to come down from all the yummy Candy….we are still munching our way through the treats so are still buzzing around the hotel all happy on sugar!

November is going to be a very busy time for us at the Sunset Inn & Suites, due to our renovations that will enhance the Internet and TV’s for each and every room in the hotel. This is going to be an exciting time for the development of the hotel, as once this project has been completed, every room will be equipped with dedicated Wireless and Hard-wire Internet and perfect TV screens for your optimal viewing pleasure. The next stage of the project after completion will be to incorporate High Definition TVs for even greater enhancement.

During the next few weeks, this work will occur Monday to Friday between the hours of 9 till 5. As the hotel is being completely rewired, there will be drilling occurring during these hours on a regular basis, we do apologise for the inconvenience this may cause for some, we will always strive to do our very best to be transparent and to make sure you are up date with how the work is progressing.

This project has been in the works for quite some time now and a special mention has to be given to Michael Wright, General Manager at the Sunset Inn and Suites. Michael has been a very important servant to the hotel over the years, and it is undoubtedly through Michael that his vision, hard work and dedication that has made what the Sunset Inn and Suites is today.

We do believe that these renovations will enhance the quality of the hotel and we will always strive to work hard to keep the hotel up to date and to keep up the standard that our guests are accustomed too.
