A maximum of two dogs per room is allowed. Each room will have easy access to pet walkways and pet relief areas.

Special touches are included for your furry friend, including:

  • Pluto’s Welcome Kit is included at check-in with a mat, bowls, pet ID tag, plastic disposable bags, puppy pads, and dog walking maps. A Pluto “Do Not Disturb” door hanger lets hotel staff know a pet is staying in the room.
  • Best Friends Pet Care is an on-property full-service facility for pet daycare and other needs (fees apply).

Dogs will need to be leashed in public and properly vaccinated.
