Hilton Rolls Out The Welcome Mat For Pets
The Hilton at Del Mar is welcoming pets into their establishments. That's right, wipe your paws on the welcome mat and snuggle into classy accommodations with your cat or dog along for the stay.
Your pet will receive a warm greeting, and plentiful services during their stay, including:
- Complimentary pet gift basket
- Trained staff to cater to your pet’s unique needs
- Personalized pet beds and food bowls
- Designated pet relief areas
Extra amenities might cost extra, however, pets are not charged a guest fee.
The Hilton Pet-Friendly Objective
The Hilton hotel’s Del Mar location isn’t the only pet-friendly establishment in this luxurious line of premium accommodations. Other locations include the Hilton at La Jolla Torrey Pines, the Hilton Garden Inn at Carlsbad Beach, and the DoubleTree Hotel by Hilton at Mission Valley.
These Hilton hotels aim to give four-legged visitors their much-needed "PTO" (pet time off). Trained staff members ensure that pets feel pampered throughout their visit. Employees can give the animals personalized accommodations from setting up stretching mats to giving belly rubs.
However, Hilton advises pet parents to follow the hotel’s rules when bringing their cats or dogs:
- Each booked room can accommodate up to two pets up to 75 pounds.
- Guests with pests can only rent rooms located on the hotel’s first two floors.
- Parents should not leave pets unattended inside rooms.
Pet owners can bring more than two fur babies to their rooms. However, each additional pet brought is charged an additional fee.
