Vancouver, BC, June 30, 2021 – Robson Street, Vancouver’s iconic shopping and dining destination, is this summer’s perfect getaway from the everyday. Launching July 1st is #stayRobson, a stay local initiative presented by the Robson Street Business Association (RSBA), in partnership with the Blue Horizon Hotel and area businesses, offering a boutique hotel experience along with exclusive access to special promotions at participating retailers, restaurants and attractions until August 31, 2021.
All Blue Horizon Hotel bookings using code STAYROBSON include a guest room with step-out balcony, breathtaking views and a late 1 p.m. checkout for a little added time to shop, dine and explore #onRobson.
