Can This Really Be London's First Hotel Doggie?

Here’s a fact to blow your mind on a Friday. Until now, apparently, London did not have a “hotel dog”. Can you believe it? We couldn’t, but then we also can’t think of anywhere that has one – so it’s probably true.

Luckily, this terrible situation has now been rectified by the Staybridge Suites Vauxhall, who’ve just hired this good-looking guy. Waggers, a labradoodle, is now part of the “welcome home” reception team. He’s been hired at the tender age of just three months.

The hotel is designed for longer stays rather than short trips, which makes a staff member like Waggers even more valuable to guests. Feeding him is not allowed, but cuddles are totally ok. Waggers is also present at the drinks bashes that the hotel throws three times a week.

A Dog is for Life, Not for Christmas, at Aloft Downtown Asheville

A dog is not just for Christmas – it’s for overnight stays in the New Year, too. Or, rather, it is if you’re staying at Aloft Asheville. Its partnership with a local animal rehoming charity means that you can check in petless, and check out with a new furry best friend.

Aloft is working with Charlie’s Angels Animal Rescue to rehome pets – which means a beauty parade of doggies around the public areas. Or, rather, one doggy at a time – wearing an “adopt me” vest, and giving pleading eyes to guests at check-in.

The Out NYC Wants You In The Dog House

Hospitality for pets is apparently “the fastest growing sector in the travel market”, which makes all the cute hotel doggies we’ve seen recently seem slightly less cute and slightly more cynical. Joking! Obviously nothing could make those dogs any less cute.

The latest hotel to jump on the furry bandwagon is The Out NYC, which has just opened some Dog House Suites – dog-friendly rooms attached to private courtyards – particularly handy for offleash activities or, we guess, doing their business. Even better, access to the courtyard is via a pet door, so they can come and go while you’re taking care of your own business. They’re not just any old courtyard, either – each has a dog house, fake grass, “faux fire hydrant” (not sure of the appeal of this one) and seats for you humans.

Goodbye Murphy, The Ultimate Hotelier Doggy

July 18, 2014 at 8:25 AM | by | Comments (0)

It’s a rather sad edition of Cute Hotel Doggies this week, as we saw the news that perhaps the most famous hotelier’s dog has died.

Bill Marriott announced the death of his golden retriever, Murphy, on his blog. He was 13.

Read the blog – it will probably make you cry. Marriott had previously blogged about Murphy, and what he’d learned from him, in 2008. This time, he writes that Murphy “would have made a great hotel executive.”

Meet Killington, Nantucket's Golf Cart-Crazy Innkeeper

Other hotels call themselves pet-friendly or talk about VIPooches. On Nantucket, it seems, they speak a little more baldly. Enter the Woof Cottages at The Cottages and Lofts at the Boat Basin: 12 dog (and cat)-friendly cottages on the waterfront, presided over by two resident innkeepers: Killington and Ellie.

Killington, pictured above, loves leaping on a golf cart to greet guests even more than he loves napping. Ellie (the Westie here), meanwhile, concerns herself with the doggie welcome amenities: tennis balls, raw hide bones and on-the-go water bottles being her top picks.

Tuna Melts Our Hearts At WestHouse New York

Does this sound mean? We don't mean it to. In honor of the World’s Ugliest Dog competition last week, we’ve got a very special Cute Hotel Doggy today.

Tuna Melts My Heart is a Chiweenie who was born with jaw problems, including an overbite, hence his, err, spectacular appearance. Having said that, what are we talking about? Quirks are what make real beauty. Tuna is gorgeous by any standard.

Anyways, he is something of an internet celebrity, and was guest of honor recently at WestHouse New York. Or, special resident, as they say there.

WestHouse is a pet friendly hotel and gives dogs a special VIP cushion and a doggy bowl on arrival. Check out their other special resident, and join our sweepstake: is s/he is a real dog or a plush toy?

All Work And No Play Makes Jack... The Hardest Working Hotel Dog In Texas

Jack and Marcus

If there’s anything that’ll make us fall for a hotel, it’s a hotel pet. And although Norman the Scooter Dog is a tough cute-hotel-doggy act to follow, here’s a worthy successor: Jack, the delectable Australian Shepherd here, who lives at the Lone Star Court, an old-motel-turned-retro-hotel in Austin.

Jack actually lives on site – above the front office with his GM roommate, Marcus Latner. But unlike you and me, Jack actually likes his roommate – so he spends the day on property, doing whatever Marcus is doing. Except, that is, when he’s chowing down on a deer antler (one that Marcus especially got for him, rather than the antler table lamps in the rooms).

Norman The Scooter Dog Got the VIPooch Treatment at Loews Madison DC

You know what celebrities are like at hotels. They check in under stupid names. They make ridiculous requests. They draw attention to themselves doing stuff like riding a motorcycle down the hallway.

And they do all that even when they’re a celebrity dog, as they found out at the Loews Madison Hotel in DC last week.

Norman the Scooter Dog (real name: Norman) checked in last week, rolling up to the lobby on his scooter (superb video here), possibly in homage to Led Zeppelin riding a motorbike through the corridors of the Riot Hyatt back in the day.

The Oscars have come and gone but celebrities are still skulking around Los Angeles Hotels.

Over at the Hotel Palomar Los Angeles Westwood you're bound to see a gorgeous young starlet who hangs out there. A girl with long glossy waves, big brown eyes, and major acting chops--that is, if by acting you mean rolling over or playing dead.

Yes, we're talking about a dog--Luna, the Cocker Spaniel in residence at Hotel Palomar, and one of Kimpton's Directors of Pet Relations.

We haven't had the chance to meet Luna yet, but L.A. pet photographer Grace Chon dropped by the hotel to take these shots of Miss Luna and tells us that she is as sweet as pie--such a rarity in Hollywood.

Edie Sedgwick Lives On, As a Dog, at Fairmont Pittsburgh

We already know that Fairmont Hotels loves dogs--and has quite a few Canine Ambassadors. But most of them, apart from the infamous Catie Copley in Boston, live in Canada.

Thankfully, the latest addition to the pack is installed a little closer to home, at the Fairmont Pittsburgh.

This lovely girl is Edie. Just as the bar at Fairmont Pittsburgh is named after the city's favorite son, Andy Warhol, the newest staff member is named after Warhol's muse, Edie Sedgwick. Instead of appearing in incomprehensible art films, though, this Edie is on hand to welcome guests to the hotel, and walk them to their rooms if they so choose.

It's Good to Be a Dog as Hotels Keep Hiring

June 10, 2011 at 2:03 PM | by | Comments (0)

There are new top dogs at the Hotel Palomar Los Angeles Westwood and Le Parc Suite Hotel in West Hollywood. And they are some cuties.

Both hotels got new directors of pet relations. Luna, an American Cocker Spaniel who sports a pink collar, works for Hotel Palomar. She's been welcoming animal and human guests and promoting the hotel's occasional Yappy Hours, pet-friendly happy hours. The doggie also lets visitors know that each pet gets a bed, bowl, treats and toys when checking in.

A 1,500-Pound Dog Checks Into the New York Palace

Hmm, we wonder what the pet fee would be for a pooch like this one, which weighs 1,500 pounds? Clearly, The New York Palace doesn't have a pet weight limit, because this guy recently moved into the hotel's Palace Gate courtyard.

His name? Doggy John. And he's one seriously expensive pup, valued at $500,000. Yes, it's because he's a work of art--an 8-foot sculpture that took French Artist Julien Marinetti seven weeks to create.

Doggy John will be display at Palace Gate through the fall, making for some fun photo ops if you feel posh enough to dine at the restaurant.
