Most Overhyped Hotel Trends: Pet Pampering

Pet Pampering

Years ago, only the cheapest chains and finest hotels would let you bring Bowser along. Now “pet-friendly” seems to have been replaced by “pet-centric” in hotels all over the world. These properties go beyond the standard water bowls and walking services; they offer special check-in staff, plush pet bedding, toys, treats, room-service menus (which include pasta and meat, not just kibble), and doggie spa treatments including pet pedicures and a choice of in-room canine rubdowns. Whether Fido prefers Swedish or deep-tissue massage is, of course, up to him.
