www.wedgewoodhotel.com, 6 Mar 2008 [cached]

After 23 years in operation and numerous invitations by distinguished international hotel groups, Eleni Skalbania, owner & operator of Vancouver's Wedgewood Hotel & Spa is delighted to announce the selection of the Wedgewood to the prestigious Relais & Châteaux association, which is recognised as "The collection of the world's finest restaurants and hotels".

The association's philosophy of the 5 C's - Courtesy, Charm, Character, Calm and Cuisine, coincides perfectly with Eleni's own views and matches the Wedgewood's own style of hospitality. Relais and Châteaux properties have always been her own preferred choice of accommodation when she travels.

"We are delighted to be associated with such an outstanding group of properties and as part of the Relais & Châteaux Family, we look forward to assisting travellers from around the world to experience and taste British Columbia at its finest" explained Skalbania.

ELENI SKALBANIA , Founder

...
Eleni Skalbania
The Wedgewood Hotel and Spa was created over 29 years ago by its Greek born owner, Eleni Skalbania and to this day, it continues to be a family-run hotel.
Over the years, the foundation upon which Mrs. Skalbania has built the hotel remains solid and consistent; a commitment to personal service, superb quality and insurmountable warmth.
Through her travels and with her distinct sense of style, she has collected fabulous antiques, sculptures, paintings, and carpets, all of which form an integral part of what the hotel stands for: uniqueness, comfort and elegance.
Providing a home away from home for countless longstanding guests, international celebrities and dignitaries, the Hotel has become respected for protecting the privacy of all its clients. The Wedgewood has set the standard for fashionable small boutique hotels in Canada.
Eleni Skalbania's attention to detail and her dedication to her guests over the years have led her to become recognized nationally with the Independent Hotelier of the Year Award.
A dedicated philanthropist, Eleni has steadfastly supported the BC Cancer Foundation, both in their research for cures, as well as the acquisition of much needed, state of the art surgical equipment. Millions of dollars have been donated or raised for cancer research through her personal support and that of the Wedgewood Cycling Team. She also supported many other charities within our community and across Canada.
Eleni passed away on September 28th, 2013, following a long battle with Lung Cancer.

It was not until Eleni got involved in the hotel business, that Joanna entered the field.
