Traveling Pets Get the VIP Treatment
From the Robb Report Luxury Newswire
PORTLAND, Ore. – Pet-friendly Provenance Hotels, a collection of eight urban lifestyle hotels in Washington, Oregon, Tennessee and Louisiana, has partnered with the experts at FIDO Friendly magazine, the leading Travel & Lifestyle magazine for wayfarers and man’s best friend, to raise the bar on their pet program and ensure the very best in comfort, nutrition and well-being for four-legged travelers. In a natural extension of the Portland-based company’s ongoing commitment to sustainability and long-lauded innovative pet program, Provenance Hotels turned to the editors at FIDO Friendly to aid in curating sustainable pet beds and treats, an eco-friendly pet room service menu and safety improvements that help ensure peace of mind for pet parents on the road.
Provenance Hotels have long been lauded for pampered pet resources that range from practical – groomers, dog walkers and veterinarians – to over-the-top indulgent – pet acupuncture, psychics, Reiki and more. In a nod to the company’s signature spiritual menu from which travelers can borrow a book of faith, the hotels also offer pet spiritual menus with inspirational books that cover everything from the laying-on-of-hands (the dos and don’ts of dog massage) to holistic care, pet psychology and good old-fashioned nature worship (the best area hikes for dogs). All books are available to registered guests on loan and free of charge during their stay.
To improve their pet program, Provenance Hotels tapped FIDO Friendly to help identify the industry’s leading brands for pet beds, wholesome pet food and tips on best practices that guests can adopt while traveling to ensure the safety of their four-legged companions.
As believers in the luxury of a good night’s sleep, when travelers check into any of Provenance Hotels’ eight properties with a furry family member in tow, they will find their room equipped with a plush dog toy and an Eco Nap pet bed produced by West Paw Design. Created using recycled plastic bottles and eco-friendly materials, these lightweight sustainably produced pet mats make for dreamy travel beds, perfect for adding comfort to travel carriers or positioned bedside in a guestroom.
Knowing that humans aren’t the only ones who deserve top quality nosh, Provenance Hotels partnered with The Honest Kitchen to offer 100% human grade pet food from the hotels’ pet room service menu. Specializing in minimally-processed, dehydrated pet food, The Honest Kitchen prepares each of their pet recipes with whole foods and natural, taste-tested ingredients that uphold the integrity of their human grade products and health benefits for pets. Nutritious and delicious, the gently dehydrated pet food preserves the vitamins and minerals received from using real fruits, veggies and lean meats and is easily prepared with the addition of water. Priced at $3 per bundle from the room service menu, dog owners and cat lovers will receive a selection of individually packaged recipes that include grain-free chicken, whole grain chicken or grain-free turkey options for dogs and grain-free chicken and grain-free turkey recipes for cats.
To ensure the safety of pets on the go, travelers to Portland’s Hotel Lucia, Hotel deLuxe and Sentinel, Seattle’s Hotel Max, Tacoma’s Hotel Murano, New Orleans’ Old No. 77 Hotel & Chandlery and Nashville’s Hotel Preston will find a custom made dog tag that provides the name and phone number of the hotel where the pet is staying with their owner. Designed to ensure a safe return in the event that one’s pet were to wander off, guests can take home Provenance Hotels’ home-away-from-home dog tag as a pet-friendly souvenir from their travels. Hotel guests will also find a VIP door hanger in their guest room to be used if they need to leave their pet unaccompanied during their stay. Created to provide pets with some peace and quiet while their owners are away, the VIP door hangers alert hotel staff that a pet is in the room and should be left undisturbed.
Guests who bring their pets to Provenance Hotels pay a once-per-stay $45 for a pet upgrade.
