New name for Vernon hotel

The Best Western Plus Vernon Lodge will switch to the Vernon Atrium Hotel and Conference Centre

A Vernon hotel is going through an identity shift.

As of Tuesday, the Best Western Plus Vernon Lodge will switch to the Vernon Atrium Hotel and Conference Centre.

“Aside from signage and some changes in it, everything else pretty much stays the same,” said Claus Larsen, general manager.

It’s anticipated that some of the guest room decor will change.

The Vernon Atrium Hotel will operate independently through the RPB hotel chain.

“All of the management and staff are already employees of RPB,” said Larsen.
