A few pet friendly hotel deals: Fort Lauderdale & San Diego

As I travel around Korea with my three dogs (I’m in Jinju now) and plan on moving with them to America, a few pet friendly press releases have caught my eye.

Here’s a fun promotion from a pet friendly hotel in Florida:

Ft. Lauderdale, FL (February 29, 2012) – The Riverside Hotel is now extending its 75 years of timeless hospitality to man’s best friend with the unleashing of its “Paw Print” promotion. Along with the introduction of their new “Pet Perks” pampering amenities, the hotel is offering a deal to the owners of any pooches whose paws fit “pawfectly” into the tile prints set in place decades ago.

The tiles used throughout the Classis Tower of the Fort Lauderdale hotel were made in Mexico in the 1930s, and after they were placed outside to dry, local animals, including dogs, walked over the pieces. The markings left by those animal paces remain at the hotel today, seemingly waiting for a lucky paw to come along.

With the “Paw Print” special, a paw print match scratches off the additional $75.00 charged for a pet’s stay! But all pups, regardless of the size and shapes of their paws, are welcome to pampering with the Riverside’s new, complimentary pet perks which include:

Doggie treats;

A water/food bowl with a bowl holder and place mat;

Doggie bed;

Waste bag holder and waste bags;

Pet toy.

As the only hotel located on Ft. Lauderdale’s most famous (and pet friendly) thoroughfare, Las Olas Boulevard, the Riverside Hotel’s “Paw Print” promotion is available on travel through December 31, 2012. From canine contour shops and the nearby dog beaches, to the Riverside Hotel’s weekly “Canine & Cocktails” event, pooches and patrons alike are sure to enjoy this “four-paws up” family vacation. The “Canine & Cocktails” event, which begins at 5:30 p.m. Sundays in Preston’s Courtyard, features 50% off drinks and appetizers for people, while pets enjoy complimentary water and treats.

For reservations call 1-800-325-3280 and ask for the “Paw Print” promotion or visit www.riversidehotel.com under the packages tab. For more information on pet friendly places on or around Las Olas Boulevard visit www.lasolasboulevard.com/petfriendlylasolas.htm.

The offer is valid on travel through 12/31/2012. Blackout dates and other restrictions may apply. Offer applies to new bookings only and is subject to availability. Offer cannot be combined with any other promotions. Hotel cancellation policies apply.

    More importantly, for those of us who like to make eco-responsible tvarel choices, the Orchard Garden Hotel is one of the most elegantly, seriously green hotels you will ever visit, which is why it’s one of my picks for the Top 5 Green Hotels in San Francisco.
