Festivals, Musical Performances, Picnics and More!
Kamloops is alive with festivals, outdoor adventure and musical performances throughout July and August. Walk or cruise on one of Hotel 540’s complimentary guest cruiser bikes to nearby local parks to take it all in.
Make Hotel540 your jumping-off point for exploration and home base for nutritious refueling and relaxation while visiting Kamloops this summer!
Cool off this summer.
No matter what level of adventure is on your list, there are places to enjoy a splash into clean, cool water both within Hotel 540 and within the nearby surrounding area! Enjoy the tranquility of our rooftop pool oasis, the only of its kind in Kamloops! Needing to wear out the little ones? Head on over to Riverside Splash Park or Prince Charles Splash Pool – both within easy walking distance of the hotel. Have Fido along with you as well? Why not all enjoy a refreshing dip in the slowly meandering South Thompson River. Sandy beaches with shaded grassy areas and dog-friendly beaches are all a hop, skip and a jump from Hotel 540’s lobby doors.
Don’t offer up your house as the place to hold the annual family reunion this summer and end up like the Griswalds. Hold your stress-free family get-together at Hotel 540! Relax, catch-up and actually enjoy each other’s company while experiencing the delectable fresh cuisine and personalized service from the professional events team at Hotel540. Customized menu and décor options are available to suite every taste and budget.
Unable to stay for the night at Hotel540 this summer? That is ok. Come and enjoy our rooftop amenities while you are in town and get a hint of what it is like to be our guest. Cool off and recharge your batteries this summer with a Hotel540 Pool Pass! Passes can be purchased from the front desk for $18 and even include your first beverage. Passes are available Sundays through Thursdays from 11am to 4pm. An afternoon on our pool deck, you will leave you wanting to book a night …or two the next time you are in town!
