Are you a pet lover? Do you get perturbed with the very thought of leaving your beloved pet behind wherever you travel or stay away from home? If so, then just don’t worry. There are many hotels in U.S. cities that are ready to take care of you and your pet.
A guest who stayed at Atlanta’s Ellis Hotel last year was all praise for a memorable stay at the hotel. The Ellis Hotel’s historic boutique style was endearing, and so were the lobby’s red velvet couch and the friendly staff. But the way the guest’s pet dog was accommodated so lovingly was simply remarkable. This is only one such example how hotels are becoming more welcoming to the guests visiting with their pets.
Travel industry experts say that these days hotels are increasingly becoming pet-friendly. Some of the hotels are even going to the extent of rolling out red carpet to welcome four-legged, cute furry animals such as cats and dogs. Hotels are leaving no stone unturned to accord the best treatments to their guest pets.
Hotels in Atlanta and beyond have added many amenities to cater to their guests traveling with pets. Chefs are there at hand to create special meals for cats and dogs and deliver to their room’s door. There are exclusive rooms outfitted with chew toys, water bowls and dog beds. The pets are also greeted in the hotel’s lobby with homemade pet treats.
The pet-friendly floor in the Ellis Hotels was recently upgraded with many new amenities such as organic farm-to-table cuisine created from the hotel’s Terrace Bistro. Upon arrival, the pets are also provided Fluffy and Fido “Ellis” red bandannas.
Hotel Indigo Atlanta Midtown is yet another dog-friendly property which started hosting a weekly event “Canine Cocktails”, in which dogs are served special menus, along with the availability of water bowls. Hotel Indigo is a chain of boutique hotel properties with a total of 38 across the United States, including four in metro Atlanta.
A study said that nearly 79.7 million families, or 65 percent of U.S. households, own a pet. This study was revealed by the American Pet Products Association after conducting National Pet Owners Survey for 2015-16.
