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.

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.

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.
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.
Oscar chillin' at Hotel Rouge in D.C.
Meet Oscar. He's a Golden Retriever from Portland, Oregon, and the canine answer to Paul Carr, the man who lived in hotels for three years.
We're not sure if Oscar is also writing a book about his experiences, but his hotel-bed and treat reactions are all documented in his owners' blog, The Great Kimpton Crawl of 2011. Yep, Oscar's a Kimpton man--mostly because they're one of the most famous and accommodating of the country's Pet-Friendly Hotels.

In what's probably the cutest contest ever, the Loews Coronado Bay will hold its sixth annual Surf Dog Competition on Coronado's Imperial Beach on June 4. You can't beat adorable dogs on surfboards.
More than 60 pooches are expected to jump into the ocean and hang 10 on their boards in hopes of winning bragging rights. Plus, the first-place winner of each division scores prizes, like a pet vacation at the dog-friendly hotel.

The Caesars Entertainment Pet Stay rooms in Vegas
When we think of Atlantic City we think gambling and Jersey Shore in that order. We don’t think dogs (unless we were feeling particularly unkind about Snooki et al). But now we might, because Showboat Atlantic City is striking out and marking its territory as the first dog-friendly casino in town.
The hotel launched its Pet Stay Atlantic City program yesterday. Bring your dog and you’ll be accommodated in its New Orleans Tower with dog treats, mat, food and water bowls, disposable waste bags (ugh) and a duffle bag for you to keep (lest you think it’s all about the dog).
There is also a designated PetStay area in the hotel (as with the fellow pet-friendly Caesars Entertainment properties in Vegas) and guests are provided with walking routes and maps to, uhm, “outdoor relief areas”).
It’s pretty reasonable – two dogs of up to 50 pounds are allowed in your room, at a cost of $40. But - yay for introductory deals - for the first two weeks of the program, it’ll be totally free.
What with yesterday being all about your human lovahs, it’s possible that you may have neglected the other important person in your life. So if you shut the dog away in the garage yesterday, it might be time to redress the balance with Loews hotels’ latest offering from the Loews Loves Pets program.
The Woofie Weekends package gives you an overnight stay, a doggie meal on room service (sadly no human nosh included), the standard Loews Loves Pets amenities of bowl, mat and tags, and a Microdry memory foam mat, which provides “contoured support and retains body warmth for enhanced coziness” – think a Tempur-Pedic for dogs. Even better, you get to take the mat home with you, which is more than you can say for human hotel beds.
As owners of some pretty Cute Hotel Doggies ourselves, we've seen our share of pet amenities. And we know that one surefire way to get our dogs to smile like this guy is to give them brand new toys.
Loews Hotels clearly know this as well, because their new Happy Tails pet package--available through the holidays and until January 31--includes a new Chatter Pup Telebone toy from Fisher Price's first line of pet toys.
The package also includes Loews' famous pet-friendly amenities (bowl, mat, and pet tags) and a 'Wag Your Tail Delight' beef tenderloin. Plus, the hotel will waive the standard $25 pet-cleaning fee.

Now you have an incentive to bring your pooch with you to the Hyatt Regency Mission Bay Spa and Marina. Fifi can rack up her own points in hotel's new loyalty program for pets.
Similar to the Hyatt Gold Passport program for humans, Gold Pawsport rewards pets for their frequent stays. The more stays pets add to their passport, the bigger the prizes, which include everything from gift certificates to personalized ID carrier tags.
We've got a thing for cute hotel animals here and we've long covered the animals hard at "work" in hotels such as Kimpton Hotels Directors of Pet Relations and even The Algonquin's fashionable housecat, Matilda. But the dog in residence at the Hyatt Regency Newport in Rhode Island might be the hardest working hotel dog in the biz.
That's because Schimitty, a Yorkshire Terrier, delivers the news with Meteorologist and ABC Producer Ron Trotta. Ok "delivers" might be too strong of a word has Schmitty just hangs out while Ron gives the weather report but if you watch the video above, you can see Schmitty has some pretty funny thoughts.
The best part of the program: there are no weight restrictions. The bummer? Bringing your pet incurs a $100 one-time non-refundable fee. We suppose if you're bringing your fur-baby to Wall Street, this is but a drop in the ocean, but pet fees in general make us growl. (Does it really cost $100 for the extra cleaning?)
