I live in Victoria, BC and I have never heard of anything like this before?

Victoria, BC’s funky and colourful Hotel Zed is inviting couples back for a ‘Nooner’ and extended lunch break.


This cheeky offer gives fun-loving guests a room between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. for $50 Cdn. Guests may choose from a selection of rooms ranging from the Sweet Suite to the Bachelor Pad. Seven-day advance booking is required along with a credit card, because guests really aren’t paying by the hour.

For guests wishing to stay longer, the hotel is offering a Valentines nightly rate starting at $95 Cdn.

Both the ‘Nooner’ and Valentine’s nightly rate are available from Hump Day (Wednesday, Feb. 10, 2016) through Valentine’s Day (Sunday, Feb. 14, 2016.).

Hotel Zed offers a number of amenities for those who might choose to spend part of their ‘Nooner’ relaxing in other ways. Along with a retro cool lobby and lounge compete with vinyl record players, typewriters, Ping-Pong tables, Wii, and comic books, the Hotel also offers access to an indoor pool, Zedinator waterslide and hot tub, free bike rentals to access the nearby Galloping Goose Regional Trail, and access to pick up and drop off service in the ’67 VW shuttle bus.

Is this popular elsewhere in US / Canada?
