As if Hotel Zed wasnt cool enough already, its added a hot pink waterslide and a menu of modern comfort food to its repertoirejust in time for summer
When you check in to Victoria's Hotel Zed, you have ample opportunities to get out and explore the citythere's cute cruiser bikes you can borrow, and a vintage VW bus that shuttles back and forth from the downtown corebut we might just prefer to stay put for the weekend. There's quirky retro furniture (think lime green 60s sofas), ping-pong games on the go in the lounge and graffiti art and a rotary phone in every room: Hotel Zed may just be our happy place.And just in time for summer, the hot pink Zedinator waterslide is now up and running alongside the outdoor hot tubanother great excuse to just hang by the pool on our next sunny Vancouver Island getaway.Zipping down the waterslide can work up quite an appetite, so it's a good thing The Ruby has now set up shop right off the hotel lobby. The restaurant serves up a menu of modern comfort food (the signature dish is a sizzling rotisserie chicken) in a space decked out in reclaimed wood and subway tiles, but if youd rather refuel in the comfort of your hotel room, good news: The Ruby offers take-out, too.Keep your eyes peeled for one of Hotel Zed's creative promotions this summer (on Valentine's Day, they offered a nooner package for lovebirds; for Halloween, they made their own mini movie, Zombies Begin with Zed), or if you just cant wait, book your room at hotelzed.com right now.
