If you like many people, you just can not fathom the idea of leaving behind your precious four-legged fur ball when you travel to New York, which means that you will need to find a pet-friendly New York hotel in order to make the trip. More and more travelers are saying “no” when it comes to boarding their pets while they travel, and insisting on taking them along for the fun. Hotels in New York are accredited to guests who bring along their pets, but not all of them will allow pets – so you’ll need to make that determination before booking a room if you are dead set on bringing Fido along with you. Do not worry – there are tons of pet-friendly hotels in New York, though. And although they may charge you an extra fee or impose other restrictions on your pet, you will be able to travel to New York with your pet without a huge hassle.
Even the most upscale hotels in New York City will make concessions for pets for a fee, and some will not charge anything for bringing the pet along because they consider it an appeasement to their guests. New York City is a place where you really can just about buy happiness. So if happiness comes in the form of a four legged friend coming along for a stay at a five star hotel that can certainly be achieved.
Not only are there five star hotels in New York City that will welcome Fido, some even have separate quarters for furry friends so that your dog can be pampered as much or more than you are when staying in New York. For example, the Helmsley Hotel is a world renovated hotel that more than welcomes pet, they cater to them. The Helmsley Hotel offers pet friendly rooms, and also offer spa days for dogs as well as “babysitting” services for your pet as well. This of course is not cheap and actually can cost about half of what an actual room charge is.
Other five star hotels offer pet services as well, and although they do not advertise the fact, they will welcome your pet for an additional fee. Of course the size of the dog plays a huge roll in if a hotel will allow the pet to stay. Typically so-called pocket pets or mini dogs are welcome at most hotels in New York City.
To find out if the New York hotel you are planning to stay in accepts pets, you will need to call the hotel or ask your travel agent. Your travel agent can also recommend pet-friendly New York hotels for you – and will be able to advise you about best practices for bringing your pet along on your flight to New York if you are flying into the city. There are restrictions on pets when traveling by air, and you will likely need to place your pet into an approved pet carrier where they will travel much like luggage to your destination.
