Time to Travel with Your Dog?

Amy-humphries-AllEP6K_TAg-unsplashIf you're fully vaccinated against COVID-19, you may be ready to travel -- and that could mean an overnight stay at a hotel with your beloved four-legged companion. The good news is that more and more hotels welcome dogs, according to NextAvenue.org. The website has the following to say about some hotels that even allow dogs at no extra charge:

A few hotel and motel brands don't charge at all... Motel 6 and Studio 6 have more than 1,400 U.S. hotels where dogs stay for free. Aloft, a Marriott brand, not only doesn't charge, but provides each canine guest with a complimentary Animals R Fun (ARF) kit which includes their own bowl, picker-upper bags, treats, a dog tag, pet toys and a bed. Kimpton, an IHG (InterContinental Hotel Group) brand, allows furry guests to stay at no charge and provides a list of items, such as a water bowl, that can be borrowed (some restrictions apply).

You should check with the hotel's website first to review the latest pet policy, or use a general site such as BringFido.com, which lists hotels, restaurants and other establishments that are pet-friendly.
