I found this article to be very interesting all because I am from a country where dogs or should I say pets are not being pampered and cared for as much as they do here. I also am a dog lover but I am not able have a dog at this point.This article is about most hotels tend to be pet friendly more than what they use to be back in the days. a lot of people tends to have pets mostly dogs and so the hotel tries to make availability to families with pets as pets are someone known as family to whosoever owns them. some hotels that cater to pets had doggy rooms for them to be in or if they are allowed to stay into the room with the owners seen that room service is an option to some hotels. pets owners are provided with a water bowl; organic treats; a squeak toy; a pooper scooper; a leash; a special Do Not Disturb sign to let the staff know there pet is in the room; and The New York Paws, a guide to area parks, shops, pet sitters and animal hospitals. Also some hotel such as the Kimpton hotel has guest without pets that are invited to be pet owners for the night. Essex hotel first open to pets into 2003 and it was one pet a week now its 10-15 per night. i like this article because i think pets also has feeling just like us humans and seeing that most people especially in the U.S owns pets having a doggy room in the hotel is another way of making money.
