Time Square Suites – Vancouver’s Hybrid Hotel Offers Live/Work Lifestyle

Hotels and small business travellers can help each other in a time of financial cutbacks.

Vancouver, Canada, October 29, 2008 --(PR.com)-- Nestled in the residential community of Vancouver’s West End, below the iconic clock tower at Denman and Robson St, is Times Square Suites. This elusive apartment style hotel has been pleasing business travellers, couples and families for many years and perhaps its unique qualities have never been so appreciated as now. “Small companies with limited budgets can justify travel expenses when they see that their employee is able to save a few dollars by having home-style conveniences such as a fully equipped kitchen and an in-suite washer/dryer. “We often learn that our business guests are submitting their grocery store receipts as part of their meal expenses and using the rooftop barbeque to have informal dinner meetings!” says General Manager Irene Roy.

“We feel that we are poised to help business people save on expenses while continuing to maintain a mobile lifestyle. This is especially important for those working on long term projects. We include free local telephone calls, in suite CD/DVD player, air conditioning, gas fireplace, complimentary fitness passes and reduced rates for our secure underground parking” Ms. Roy adds.

In the off-work hours, Times Square Suites’ location allows guests to focus on the simple things that Vancouver residents enjoy each day. Common activities such as a walk in Stanley Park accompanied by a fresh Starbucks coffee, a stroll down Robson St to window shop or a visit to the Vancouver Art Gallery are but a few. Guests staying for a longer duration may opt for a video store membership and rent DVD’s to enjoy while curled up in front of the fireplace as if they were at home.

New this fall is the “Eye on the Street”. This webcam will enable Times Square website viewers to see activities happening on the corner of Robson and Denman. One frequent business guest of Times Square Suites is very excited, commenting “my little girl will be able to look online and see where mommy is – a kind of virtual connectedness”.

For a limited time, Times Square Suites is offering a “Winter Lifestyle Special”. Valid for business and leisure travelers from November 1 – December 31, 2008, One bedroom suites are $99CAD ($79USD) per night and $1995CAD ($1600USD) “tax free” for a one month stay ( 30 days).

Times Square Suites offers 42 furnished suites and is a perfect alternative to the traditional hotel. Situated in the internationally renowned and vibrant heart of Vancouver’s West End it’s a spectacular location close to Stanley Park, English Bay, the Financial District and the City's top entertainment venues.
