Celebrating Sustainability with a Listel Hotel Prize Package!


Art lovers know that the Listel Hotel is Vancouver’s “most art-full hotel” and “a cultural tourist’s dream”, but it’s quietly becoming Vancouver’s most eco-friendly hotel as well. The Listel profiles the extraordinary work of local and international artists and musicians all while preserving the beautiful, natural environment that surrounds its vibrant Robson Street location.

The art-filled, 129 room hotel has taken on several sustainability initiatives over the years, including installing solar panels and a highly efficient heat recovery system to pre-heat water used by guests. The adjoining O’Doul’s Restaurant & Bar uses their old menus as note paper and has implemented a sustainable purchasing policy. Think fresh, local, Ocean Wise (aka ocean-friendly) seafood – yum!

Share your Favourite Olympic Moment and Win a Pair of Mitts!

An Olympic Original

The anniversary of the Vancouver 2010 Winter Games is just around the corner. Arguably one of the most iconic souvenirs from those games were those red mittens that everyone was wearing. People stood in line for hours in hopes of buying  a pair, and many were disappointed. And good luck trying to find a pair now. That design has been discontinued, and although The Bay is currently selling  something similar, you aren’t going to find any Olympic rings on them.

Lucky for you we’ve got a couple of shiny new pairs to give away, still with the original Olympic tags and all! To be eligible to win them you simply need to post a comment below sharing your favourite Olympic moment.

Congratulations to Michelle and Kenneth for winning the Red Mittens Giveaway!
