I have recently decided to go back to college, and I'm going for hotel management. My long term goal is to have a pet friendly hotel, that is not only pet friendly but caters to pets. Like provides a dog park area, cots for beds, and such... does anyone know if anything like this already exist? I'm really excited about this and i'm hoping i'm the first one to think of this lol. I love my dog, and would just love for their to be a hotel that people really love bringing their dogs to. i know they have pet friendly hotels, and i've taken sawyer to them.. but he still doesn't seem as welcomed as i would like him to be. what do ya'll think?

Services include:

There is no pet fee, no pet deposit, no weight/size restrictions, no limit on number of pets.

The Argonaut in San Fransisco does. I believe some high end hotels (like the Ritz) do it too, in certain locations.

Here in Florida although there are no specific provisions for pets most dogs are allowed with a fee. Most of the higher end hotels cater to pets better than some of the smaller ones. You can get almost any hotel to be pet friendly in a tourist area or state.

This would be a place I would feel good about vacationing at, not just stopping for a night - it's as much about the pets as it is about the people big grin

Is this what you had in mind? wink

Titus, We want to go there! Looks like a super nice place. Just one teeny problem, Texas has had more than 38 days straight with over 100 degree temps according to the news this morning. I should plan to visit in winter, BOL!big grin

In the NC mountains there are actually a couple of dog vacation resorts where you stay in dog friendly cabins, friendly dogs can be off leash on their acerage property, they have a swimming hole for dogs, a dog walker if needed, etc.

So, to answer your question yes, these places do exist. However, they aren't super common, and for the average traveler most are way out of budget. So, a family budget friendly hotel that caters to dogs? That'd be awesome.
