Kelowna hotel, Vernon resort temporarily closing to help ‘flatten the curve’ of COVID-19

The Hotel Eldorado in Kelowna and Sparkling Hill Resort in Vernon are temporarily closing their doors because of coronavirus concerns.

A fixture along Okanagan Lake in Kelowna since 1926, the Hotel Eldorado is a Victorian-style inn that has hosted countless tourists since its founding by an Austrian countess.

Until April 30, though, the hotel, and its restaurant, will be closed to visitors.

Also closing because of the COVID-19 pandemic: Sparkling Hill Resort in Vernon.

In a press release, Sparkling Hill management said though no cases have been related to the resort, its doors will close on Saturday, March 21, at noon.

“This is an immensely somber and uncertain time for all of us, and we are exceptionally grateful for the support we have seen from our community and team,” said Hans-Peter Mayr, Sparkling Hill Resort CEO.

“We hope to reopen as soon as it is possible, and we give our immense gratitude and respect to the healthcare workers who are battling for the health of the most vulnerable in our communities.”
