Sleeping far away from home has its perks and disadvantages. Perks like being alone and experiencing luxury are hard to refuse. It has disadvantages too like missing home and our pet dog. It is good to know that there are hotels out there that employ pets to bring happy happiness to their guests.
Here are some hotels that see the importance of having pets around:
- The Jefferson: The hotel in Washington D.C employs a CEO (which stands for Canine Executive Officer). The pet dog is a beagle and is called Monti. Monti is hanging around the lobby and welcoming the guests. The “Lord Monti” experience is $450 a night but the 5% of the reservation will be given to PAW Rescue.
- Fairmont Copley Plaza: The hotel in Boston has two lovable canine ambassadors. The black Labradors are named Catie and Carly Copley. The dogs enjoy riding on the bellcarts and are there to greet the guests. In fact, we can book an appointment with them and take them for a walk.
- Ritz-Carlton, Bachelor Gulch: The hotel in Colorado has two dogs – a St. Bernard called Bachelor and a Bernese mountain dog called Belle. The two dogs can take its visitors to hiking trails and flower-covered hills. Ah, what a fine experience.
- Mandarin Oriental: If we are in Bangkok, we should see the Mandarin Oriental and hear the Thong-Jaa sisters. The sisters are domestic mynah birds capable to mimic sounds if they are taught. The best experience is the birds greeting the guests.
Although we are not sure if there are hotels here in Singapore with the same services, we surely hope that there is one. Having a pet around brings us closer to home.
