Vacationing With Pets

For those who can’t bear to leave pets at home or with strangers, there are numerous hotels that allow for beloved animals to join their owners. GoNOMAD writer Sarah Freddie describes three such hotels in her article Pet-Friendly Hotels on the East Coast.

The Marlowe: “goes out of its way to provide treats for its furry clientele. If your pet has stayed at the Marlowe five times, he will receive a lunch box full of treats! If your pet celebrates a birthday during your stay at the hotel, the hotel will order your pet a cake from the Polka Dog Bakery.”

The Helix: “Guests with pets are automatically provided with food and water bowls. The hotel offers a “doggie-style” package offered to guests that includes: food and water bowls, a dog robe with the Helix logo on it, a dog treat, and a dog manicure and pedicure at Doggie Style Bakery. The hotel also offers, for a small fee, a map showing great places to walk the dog, or even the cat. Along with the map, doggie scoop bags and a toy are included.”

The Inn by the Sea: “Bringing along a pet to the Inn is no concern; the Inn goes out of its way to provide a wonderful time for the pet as well as his owner. Dog-walking and dog-sitting services are offered to guests. If you let the Inn know in advance, for a small fee, gourmet pet menus and access to a dog grooming service are available.”
