Google Trends onthult dat meer mensen dan ooit een verblijf bij hun honden boekenaugustus 20, 2020
While we’re all experiencing the stress and anxiety that has come along with global stay at home orders and travel bans, many of us have found comfort in man’s best friend, with animal shelters across the country reporting dog adoptions soaring throughout the pandemic.
Now, unsurprisingly, as we’ve collectively become antsy to book a summer getaway for a change of scenery, people are looking for nearby dog-friendly hotels to spend their staycation. In fact, Google search trends have indicated a huge upward trend ( 90%) over the last week for ‘dog-friendly hotels’ searches, and ‘best dog vacations’ 50%—and for good reason. If we’re unable to book a far flung vacation, going on a staycation with your new furry friend is the next best thing.
When it comes to dog-friendly hotels in the US, the options range from puppy pizza parties (yes, really!), to dog spa days, and pup-friendly room service and amenities that promise to make your summer staycation just as memorable (or perhaps even moreso) than that international summer holiday you had planned.
Planning your own pup-friendly getaway? Here are a handful of great options for you and Fido to make the most of your holidays close to home.
Indulge in a puppy pizza party in the presidential suite at Renaissance Reno Downtown Hotel.
Located on the West Coast? A road trip to the alpine city of Reno is a great way to escape your day-to-day and reconnect with nature—at least for a weekend. Overlooking the Truckee River, the Renaissance Reno Downtown Hotel offers fine dining (including room service), a rooftop pool, an indoor mural collection and a unique ‘Who Let the Dogs Out’ luxury puppy pampering and pizza party package that comes with the exclusive presidential suite. The package includes plush doggie beds, infused water, specialty treats, and playtime on the deck of Bundox Bocce. The Renaissance Reno also offers a decadent breakfast on the outdoor deck of The Shore Room, where guests can indulge in bottomless mimosas while their pups enjoy a ‘bark breakfast.’
Explore the great outdoors and retreat to a cabin at Getaway Piney Woods.
Spread out along 99 acres of uninterrupted forest, Getaway Piney Woods in Larue, Texas is a great option for anyone looking for a socially distanced escape. The property features quaint pup-friendly cabins that are each equipped with a small kitchen for preparing your own meals, a contemporary bathroom, and other amenities that will make your escape feel more like a secluded hotel stay as opposed to roughing it in the woods.
Soak in the picturesque views of the Appalachian Mountains before indulging in turn-down treats at The Bristol Hotel.
While it may not be the South of France or the Maldives, the breathtaking Blue Ridge Parkway and picturesque Appalachian Mountains is a pretty decent consolation price when it comes to domestic travel. Be sure to check into the pet-friendly The Bristol Hotel in Bristol, Virginia, where you and your pup will be treated to a hotel branded plush bed, house-made puppy snack at check-in, and a special turn-down service treat “on pillow” before bed. The Bristol Hotel also offers calming CBD dog treats, courtesy of local herbalist Appalachian Alchemy.
