Thanks to the host of local pet-friendly hotels, Fido can come along for!
If the idea of boarding your dog while you are away seems unfathomable, consider bringing your pooch along for the trip. These days, it’s easier than ever to include furry friends on your travels or just an Atlanta staycation. In fact, multiple local hotels offer pet-friendly packages and incentives. Here are two properties stepping up to the plate.
BELLYARD, WEST MIDTOWN ATLANTA
Bellyard, one of Atlanta’s newest boutique hotels, offers 161 guest rooms and a Southern cuisine inspired dining venue called Drawbar. Nestled in walkable West Midtown, it’s a great spot to enjoy with your pooch in tow.
Bellyard recently introduced a package geared toward man’s best friend. The Bellyard Bark Package includes access to Fetch Park where parents can socialize with refreshments while pups enjoy ramps, tunnels and a sprinkler. Bellyard also provides a dog-friendly guide listing nearby groomers, dog bakeries and pet-friendly eateries. Four-legged friends are also welcome at Drawbar that serves craft beer for humans and pups (no alcohol included in theirs). The package also includes all your-pup-can-eat treats and a toy.
“The Bellyard Bark Package ensures that pets are entertained and showered with love,” says General Manager Brendan Abraham.
The package covers up to two dogs and must be booked at least five days in advance. A $150 pet fee per night applies.
