Have you ever had to board your pet? If you like to travel, the answer is probably yes. While many of these facilities try their best to give your pet a happy and comfortable stay, the fact is that you aren’t there to supervise and make sure your fur babies are enjoying themselves. In an ideal world, you’d be able to bring your pets anywhere and everywhere you go, making sure that they enjoy the trip just as much as you do.
Well, maybe you can.
All around the country, hotel chains are beginning to loosen their restrictions on pets. Though the numbers are a little fuzzy, the US Census Bureau found that nearly 50% of households owned a pet in 2016. Ultimately, private owners and hotel chains are realizing that becoming pet friendly is simply a good business decision. I mean, why cut out 50% of your customer base?
But, just being “pet friendly” isn’t always what it’s cracked up to be. You’re on vacation, so why shouldn’t your pet be? In this article, we’ll explore four of the most popular pet-friendly hotels in the US that will absolutely pamper your pets.
From treats and toys to beds and blankets, these hotels will leave your pets feeling as refreshed and relaxed as you do.
