Boutique hotels go dog friendly.
This goes way beyond “dogs allowed.” The FireSky, a Kimpton boutique hotel and spa in Scottsdale, Arizona, belongs to a new breed of high-end hotels catering to people and their pets. Expect no additional fees, no security deposits, a complimentary greeting by a chocolate cocker spaniel named Bosco, and a luxe doggie bed complete with canine cookies. On-site doggie daycare and dog-walking services ensure that your furry friend has just as much fun on vacation as you do.
But do four-legged guests get into more trouble than they’re worth? Not at all, according to Jim Hollister, FireSky’s general manager. “Guests and the staff love having the dogs here,” he says. “And come to think of it, we’ve had far fewer problems with canine visitors than with our human ones.”
