A luxury holiday is nothing if we can’t enjoy it with the entire family and sometimes the most important members are left behind at home because the destinations we travel to aren’t welcoming to the four legged kids or siblings / friends. Which only means the hotels we’d prefer offering our patronage to come from our school of thought. The difference between an animal friendly hotel and otherwise is very obvious when the guest arrives. The excitement and thrill the hotel team experiences prior to their arrival is worth the watch. They wait eagerly to receive the furry guests just to see how cute or friendly or devilishly playful they are. In effect the hotel team needs to love animals as much as the human guests do. Here are a few hotel chains who offer the same value driven experience towards furry guests and genuinely care about their stay.
Rosewood Hotels and Resorts:
Rosewood Hotels is not just a animal friendly group of hotels, they make an effort to give the dogs staying at their locations the ultimate luxurious experience. Rosewood Hotel London goes a step ahead to have a resident canine named Pearl, who is nothing short of a graceful lady if you take a look at her very own instagram handle. She is a gorgeous golden retriever with well manicured paws and conditioned fur with gentle mannerisms. A true lady! She will assist your little furry friends to adapt well to the new environment or even accompany those who are away from their animals for reason. Rosewood CordeValle, California and San Miguel de Allende, Mexico too offer the amenities similar to London hotel. A comfy bed with a canopy, a paw shaped food plate and bowl, toys, welcome treats and an outdoor patio restaurant for dining. Rosewood London will even go a step furhter to help you with a guide enlisting all the pet friendly restaurants and cafe in London. What more can a tail wagging buddy ask for?
Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts:
One of the most sincere hospitality chains that remains till date the finest in luxury. When Four Seasons says they welcome pets, they open their hearts to welcome them. Four Seasons Hampshire for instance has a resident labrador named Oliver Beckington who will ensure he inducts every guest, human or furry to his playful routine. Over the last four years Oliver has charmed everyone from staff to guests with his naughty yet loving personality and his beautiful black fur coat. He is a true country side friend and enjoys running across the estate as well as taking his much loved afternoon nap. He is quick to make friends with furry guests as well as kids staying at the hotel. Similarly Four Seasons Vancouver has added a dog menu to their In-room dining service. They assist you with parks that offer off-leash entry and other locations around the city of Vancouver where your pooches are welcome. Four Seasons St. Louis ensures your friends are well taken care of from the time of welcome to bidding adieu with the finest pet amenities on offer.
Fairmont Hotels and Resorts:
Ever since they took it upon themselves to tell the world that Pets are family too, the gates of luxury hotels may have been wide open for travellers to bring along their entire family with them. The animal loving hotel group has programs of varied nature at their respective locations. Fairmont Hotel Vancouver and Fairmont Resort Jasper have Canine Ambassadors – Mavis and Beau at Vancouver and Stanley at Jasper, while Miramar Hotel and Bungalows in California has something called P.A.W that stands for ‘Pets Always Welcome’. All the works from beds to in-room amenities are drawn out upon their arrival to extend a cosy welcome. Prior to arrival guests need to inform if they’d like pet sitting services on certain days which are arranged in advance. The Jasper hotel even has a copy of the pet magazine BARK! offered in-room. Talk about a grand welcome and luxurious stay.
