  150. The thing that caught my eye in your write up about this hotel is the “pets welcome” part. I’ve recently started a blog about dog-friendly travel in BC because we take our 4 1/2 year old black Lab Indiana Jones with us everywhere. Trying to find info on hotels & B&B’s that are TRULY pet friendly and not just what I call “mildly dog tolerant” is almost impossible. Thus the blog.( if you’re curious.) We’re working on blogging his recent, excellent experience in Whistler. Anyway, if I win, we’d take him and review the Delta Victoria Ocean Pointe for other dog lovers out there. Indy loves the Island!
