Happy New Year! We’ve survived the ‘Mayan Meltdown’ of 2012! The world did not end, and there was no great apocalypse. Now it’s time to turn the calendar page and look ahead to another great year!
The New Year has always been a time to start fresh. The days grow longer, the sun burns brighter, and with January 1st many of us take the opportunity to look ahead to the promise of another year! Lose weight, quit smoking, get into shape, oh the list of promises to ourselves can be long. While not impossible to keep, maybe resolutions should focus more on life altering than life changing. Attainable goals are important because, when we reach a goal we feel good about ourselves. Small steps can take us on a long journey, if we can stay on track.
At the BEST WESTERN PLUS Chateau Granville hotel in downtown Vancouver, we too have been gradually altering ourselves, along with the rest of Granville Street in Vancouver’s urban core. A few years ago, the Edge Social Grille and Lounge opened up on this hotel’s main floor. Almost overnight, the corner of Granville Street and Helmcken Street became a popular destination in the Granville Street Entertainment District; as our count of Edge Facebook friends will attest too!
Next, the hotel lobby and plaza got a facelift, and the BEST WESTERN PLUS Chateau Granville hotel established itself as the finest hotel on Granville Street.
Achieving the status of a BEST WESTERN PLUS broadcast these changes for all the world to see. This hotel continues to improve, receiving a `4 GREEN KEY` rating for our environmental friendliness, and taking our place alongside corporate Vancouver in supporting charities and other socially significant endeavours.
The year ahead promises many exciting developments for the BEST WESTERN PLUS Chateau Granville, as the surrounding neighbourhood continues to re-invent itself, propelling Granville Street to its’ former, and now renewed glory, as the destination avenue for downtown Vancouver.
Happy New Year everyone! All of us at the BEST WESTERN PLUS Chateau Granville hotel in downtown Vancouver wish you all the best for 2013. And like you, we look forward to an exciting and rewarding new year!
