Kelowna Accommodations

There are many hotels to choose from in the vicinity of downtown Kelowna. If you have a car, the options are nearly unlimited. The number of hotels within walking distance of the Rotary Centre for the Arts where the conference will be held is somewhat limited. However, there are also many condominium rentals nearby that rent for about the same price as a higher end hotel room and are available through various accommodation booking sites such as AirBnB, VRBO, Trip Adviser, and many others. Below is a list of hotels near the conference location. We will try to have a morning shuttle from some of the hotels to the conference venue to make getting to the conference easy.

Downtown Hotels

*We have arranged for a small block of rooms at the Royal Anne Hotel. This is an older, but very nice hotel, an easy walk to the conference as well as many good restaurants and shops in downtown Kelowna. Please book directly with the hotel (1-888-811-3400) and mention that you are attending the “Bird Strike Conference” to access the reserved rooms while they last.
