Kelowna is wearing its fall colours spectacularly well this year. The brilliant foliage mixed with blue skies and seasonably warm temperatures makes it a perfect time to visit the city, and that includes those travelling alone. Whether you are on business or just need a little break from it all, our Kelowna hotel can help you get on your way with these essential fall travel items and tips that will make your stay one to remember.

Preparing for your Adventure

Fall weather in the Okanagan can be unpredictable. You can expect everything from full-on sunshine and clear skies to rain, sleet and snow, sometimes without warning. Not only is it important to pack warm and weatherproof clothing along with your suit (if you’re here on business), you’ll also want a good pair of walking shoes or hiking boots and leisure wear to explore the surrounding mountains and trails. Other essentials to put in your suitcase should include:

  • A small backpack with padded shoulders for day trips
  • Bathing suit (you’ll need it if staying at our hotel in Kelowna with a swimming pool and hot tub)
  • Camera, phone and/or laptop
  • Allergy medication or prescriptions
  • Umbrella or rain jacket with hood
  • Moisturizer to combat dry skin
  • Empty water bottle
  • Warm hat
  • Sunglasses

Flying Solo? Look for Hotels in Kelowna near the Airport

If you’re planning to arrive and/or depart Kelowna by air, you can lessen your travel time (and taxi-shuttle fare) by looking for a hotel near Kelowna International Airport (YLW). Located on Highway 97, in between YLW and downtown Kelowna, the Comfort Suites offers the best starting point for solo travellers and business executives looking for centrally located Kelowna accommodations.

Table for One: Dining In Just Got Easier

If you’d rather not have to dine out alone or rely on takeout fast food for your lunch or dinner, we offer a solution: Order in from your choice of more than 50 fine Kelowna restaurants and pair it with a wonderful fall Okanagan wine. You can order the food you want, and even your choice of beverage (libation included for those 19-plus), and have it delivered directly to your Kelowna hotel suite with Skip the Dishes. Have leftovers? You can store and heat them up at our hotel in Kelowna with kitchenette, which includes a microwave and fridge. And best of all, you get a complimentary hot breakfast buffet every morning of your stay.


Track Those Fall Colours by Booking a Wine Tour

 If you only have a day or two days to spare, you’ll want to cram in as much sightseeing as possible. Perfect for those travelling alone, a guided tour can give you both insight into an area and is also a great way to meet some locals. Fall is a great time to go on an Okanagan wine tour. The Comfort Suites Kelowna offers one of the best Kelowna hotel deals with our Wine Tour Packages.

It includes:

  • One night’s accommodation is our well-appointed Junior Suite
  • A guided tour in a comfortable vehicle by one of our wine tour partners
  • A full-day or half-day visiting some of the region’s most decorated wineries and tasting delicious varietals  (tasting fees, water, snack and informative commentary included)
  • Complimentary hot breakfast buffet to start your day and our indoor splash pool, hot tub in which to unwind afterwards
