Best Pet-Friendly Hotel - 2006
As more and more hotels open their doors to our pets, it takes a lot to stand out. Hotel Palomar, near Union Square, has gone the extra mile. When making reservations, guests have two pet package options to choose from a deluxe room or a suite, ranging from $239 to $439. And with 10 percent of all pet package proceeds going to San Francisco's SPCA, you can feel a little less guilty about going all out for your pooch. When you check in with your hound, your room is filled with extras and essentials, including matching dog and human beds, water and food bowls, plenty of treats, and poop bags. The hotel even offers dog-walking services. And if you travel with a different species, no worries: Hotel Palomar caters to the entire animal kingdom. In fact, the hotel's first alligator guest checked in this March.
