Hilton Goes Pet Friendly

Hilton Hotels announced last week plans to welcome dogs and cats into hotels in the United States by later this summer. "Hilton focuses on providing a hassle-free and inspired experience for the world's travelers - and for many travelers, being able to include a four-legged friend is critical to achieving a relaxed and productive stay," said Jeff Diskin, senior vice president - brand management, Hilton Hotels & Resorts.

But your four-legged friend won't simply have a corner to sleep in. Part of the pet friendly program includes offering premium pet amenities such as stain-, water- and microbial-resistant pet bed, as well as food and water bowls with placemat, and an exclusive pet amenity kit complete with dog waste clean-up bags and treats. Participating hotels will also offer a pet concierge, including providing information about local veterinarians and dog runs.
