There is so much to take-in and explore around Kamloops during our warm summer months!
Be on vacation, and FEEL like you are on vacation
Its one thing to be on vacation….its another thing to have it actually feel like a vacation too. Find that relaxed-state faster while staying at Hotel 540 as you enjoy all of our amenities our Hotel has to offer. Grab a pool-side lounger within our roof-top pool oasis, close your eyes and listen to the decorative water spouts surrounding the pool, order a meal and signature cocktail (using freshly grown ingredients from our roof-top garden) and enter vacation-mode. Hotel 540 is the only hotel in the area to offer pool-side food and beverage service and our attentive staff look forward to serving you.
Within the Heart of the City
Enjoy sandy river-side beaches, tranquil green parks (with plenty of shade), paved walking and biking trails and splash parks for the kids all within steps of Hotel 540’s front doors. Quench your thirst on creative concoctions from local breweries, enjoy freshly grown produce and baking from vendors at the Downtown Farmers’ Markets or satisfy your summer cravings with a locally-inspired meal from our in-house restaurant, blue Dining + Lounge. Tap your feet to an array of complimentary musical performances and have some fun during one of the city’s downtown summer festivals. Cool off in air-conditioned boutique shops and galleries or within the South Thompson River itself!
