Special canine cuisine from Inn by the Sea features gourmet
treats such as The Bird Dog (above)
and K- 9 Ice Cream topped with dog
the amenities offered to its canine guests.
During the dog days of summer, pups enjoy
complimentary ice cream, while their human
companions are served cocktails. And during
the last two weeks of October, the pool goes
to the dogs (and is off-limits to two-legged
guests). Canines get turn-down services,
including locally handmade treats; massage
therapists trained in doggy massage are available. All this extra attention seems to work:
The inn’s 17 pet-friendly rooms sell out first.
Sun, sand and surf lure guests to the
Loews Coronado Bay Resort in San Diego.
If you’re on the beach, don’t be shocked to
see a pooch surfing, an activity that goes for
$85 a session.
And while you won’t find Fido at the
gaming tables, don’t be surprised to spot him
checking in with his owner at Caesars Palace
in Las Vegas. The hotel designates areas as
pet-friendly, although dogs left
unattended in the room must be
crated. (Crates are available for
rent.) For weddings and birthdays, there’s even cake on the
Chef Manny Lassahn,
owner of three dogs, creates
the canine dishes at the
Hyatt Regency Century
Plaza in Beverly Hills.
Rescue dog Lucky, who
resides in the hotel
with general man-
ager Scott Allen, is the official canine food
tester. Dogs receive their own Hyatt Gold
Pawsport and a card on their birthday. Five
visits get owners $50 toward services at LA
Dogworks and 1,000 Passpoints. Fido also
gets a personalized ID tag. And the hotel is
talking about having a “Yappy Hour” with
wine for the owners and treats for the dogs.
So, in the future, don’t be surprised to see
hotels finding even more ways to welcome the
four-legged members of your family. C
