Hotel Zed’s Think Tank balances work and play perfectly

Victoria’s Hotel Zed has turned the idea of a corporate retreat on its colourful—and creative—head

Known for channelling creativity at every turn, the hip, urban Hotel Zed in Victoria recently added to its offerings with the Think Tank: the solution to keep the attendees at your next board meeting from becoming, well, bored.

Dubbed the Ping Pong Lounge, colourful floor-to-ceiling stripes promise to stimulate conversation and out-of-the-box thinking among groups of up to eight.

Centrally located near Downtown, Uptown and the Galloping Goose Regional Trail—perfect for cyclists—Zed’s Think Tank is available from October through April. Each booking includes free parking and unlimited access to free coffee or tea, not to mention all the accoutrements needed for a day of inspiring discussion: white boards, flip chart, digital projector and lots of bright colours!

Take a break to keep the creative juices flowing and connect to free Wi-Fi and numerous wall-mounted TVs with surround sound. Fire up a friendly challenge at the ping pong table, take to two back-to-back Wii stations or rent a bike for free and explore the local scenery with your colleagues.

Also onsite is the Ruby restaurant, specializing in brined, dry-rubbed rotisserie chicken and a menu built around the signature dish, with catering available. Extend your stay with discount group rates on accommodations and let your team take advantage of the hot tub, Zedinator waterslide and pool.

Need a ride to your retreat? You’ll find no corporate shuttle here, but a seven-seater vintage VW bus to pick you up from your Victoria-area office, Harbour Air or from any downtown hot spot.

Book your eight-hour Think Tank rental for $200, or opt for four hours in the evening only for $150, plus taxes.
