Stop What You are Doing and Check Out This Puppy in a Kimpton Hotel Bathrobe

January 28, 2015 at 11:05 AM | by | Comments (0)

Let's just take a quick break right now from the stress and anxiety we're all under on this Wednesday morning and focus on this snapshot of the Today Show's puppy, Wrangler, chilling in a Kimpton Hotels animal-print bathrobe during the "blizzard" the other day. The cuteness, it kills.

There's also another pic of Wrangler "reading" the room service menu. Glad to see someone else feels the same way we do about this supposedly waning hotel tradition.

Kimpton Hotels has long been a fave pet-friendly hotel brand of HotelChatter. We think half of the stories in our dog-friendly hotels section feature Kimpton properties. But now that Kimpton is officially a part of InterContinental Hotel Group, we guess they're able to take their pet-friendliness national now. Thanks, IHG!

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 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.

Meet Anna.

In the wine region around Mendoza, there sits a tiny design-focused hotel—El Aguamiel—with its own vineyard...and its own vineyard guard dog. Anna is a large, black presence on the property, as she slinks around the 6 rooms (yes, only 6), the pool, the restaurant and the many rows of Malbec grapes.

Now, with video:

Wondering What To Wear For NY Fashion Week? First, Take Care of Your Pooch

January 26, 2012 at 9:15 AM | by | Comments (0)

NY Fashion Week is fast approaching. And you know what that means. Private parties, lobbies littered with models, and The James' signature NYFW meal.

And those are just for the humans. Fashion-forward dogs, on the other hand, will be strutting their stuff at the New Yorker. On February 10, specifically, when a New Yorkie pet apparel fashion show descends on the hotel, complete with a celebrity appearance by none other than Schmitty the Weather Dog, possibly our favorite hotel-hopping pooch ever.

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.
