As a publisher of the Top 20, I spend a lot of time reading the Facebook comments of our users. It’s important to me to know what you like (and don’t like) about our deals. From all my non-scientific research, I’ve noticed a common thread with many of our users -- you love your pets and want to travel with them!
As the owner of the best dog on the planet, I can relate. Just this past summer I planned a road trip solely for the opportunity to take a vacation with Murphy (said best dog on the planet).
For those of you pet-lovers, here’s a Travelzoo Tip -- if you take a look at the Terms & Conditions for many of our hotel deals you can find whether a particular hotel is pet-friendly. And if for some chance it’s not noted, feel free to give the hotel a call directly to find out. There’s also a host of online resources that can provide information about pet-friendly hotels, including www.petswelcome.com and www.bringfido.com.
One of my personal favorite pet-friendly hotel brands is Kimpton Hotels. All of their hotels across the country welcome any pet, regardless of size or weight -- at no additional cost! In addition to being chic and comfortable for humans, they also have a host of amenities just for your pet, including pet beds, food and water bowls and snacks in the lobby. Select hotels even have their own Hotel Directors of Pet Relations, right on site.
