To cater to these playful pooches, the hotel is launching its “Very Important Dog” program on Friday, June 22, on the same date that commemorates to the national “Take Your Dog to Work Day.”

Through the “Very Important Dog” program, guests’ dogs (there are no dog weight restrictions) will enjoy a stay full of bow WOW! For a onetime non-refundable fee of $150 per stay, per dog, the program will offer “Luxury for Your Four-Legged Friend” with the following perks:

  • VID check-in designated area in the lobby
  • VID welcome bag with goodies, including a reflective collar tag, wee-wee pads, treat
  • VID in-room amenities: dog bowl and dog mat
  • VID amenities for rent upon request: pet ramp/stairs, pet bed

  • VID concierge service/information
  • VID dining menu available at the hotel’s beach-chic signature oceanfront restaurant, Coastal. Guests can dine with their dog on Coastal’s oceanfront patio or in the guestrooms.

The hotel is partnering with barkBISTRO whole food pet kitchen, which provides all-natural, fully cooked premium dog food, to offer doggy dining for purchase at Coastal or via in-room dining service.

To kick off the “Very Important Dog” program, the hotel will host a launch event on June 22 from 5–7 p.m. in its main lobby area. Dogs and their parents can enjoy special treats and a cocktail (for parents), plus a presentation by barkBISTRO and Petbiotics, featuring probiotic-powered pet shampoos and cleaners. All guests who attend the event who dine at Coastal that evening will receive a complimentary glass of house wine or a draft beer with a purchase of an entrée, as well as complimentary valet. In addition, locals will receive a 20% discount off their check until September 2018.
