Hotel deLuxe Debuts Afternoon Tea Service for FIDO & Mr Whiskers Too
This FIDO Fabulous twist on traditional English tea features TeaPet Salon pet-friendly herbal infusions.
Lauded for their over-the-top pet-friendly accommodations, Hotel deLuxe has expanded its popular Afternoon Tea service from Gracie’s sun-dappled dining room into the hotel’s luminous lobby and is now inviting guests to bring their four-legged companions and imbibe – or rather, embark – on a culinary adventure with Afternoon Tea for Pets.
Now, when guests book the hotel’s popular Afternoon Tea, they can opt to upgrade the experience, bring their pet and enjoy traditional English tea service while Rover and Mr. Whiskers sample their own canine or feline tea service with a choice of herbal tea infusion from TeaPet Salon. These special blends are made just for furry companions using premium natural herbal ingredients. Flavor options for dogs include Le Grand Wag, made with Rooibos, Rose Hips and Nettle and flavored with all Natural Bacon, Salmon and Apple; Marco Pollo, an active blend of herbs like purifying Burdock, heart friendly Hawthorn and energy boosting Ginseng blended with all natural Roasted Chicken, Sweet Potato and Coconut flavors; and Ruff Day, a delicious blend of anxiety calming and stomach soothing herbs like Chamomile, Valerian and Ginger flavored with all natural Blueberry, Beef and Maple. For cats, Hotel deLuxe offers Meowtopia, a blend of herbs like Catnip, Valerian and Lemongrass with Natural Salmon, Bacon and Apple flavors. Pets also enjoy pet-friendly treats from Furrever Pets Bakery.
Pet tea is the latest twist on the traditional English style Afternoon Tea that, under the direction of Kaitlin Dover, the hotel’s tea sommelier, has made Hotel deLuxe a destination for tea lovers in the Pacific Northwest. When they book, pet parents will enjoy everything Afternoon Tea includes: custom-blended teas from Portland-based Smith Teamaker, the nation’s foremost tea purveyor; a menu of house-made scones, finger sandwiches, Marionberry jam, and dainty tea pastries, plus imported English clotted cream; and the option to add on glasses of bubbly or a la carte tea-inspired cocktails crafted with Portland-made Townsend Tea Spirits by the experts from the hotel’s Driftwood Room cocktail lounge.
The 90-minute Afternoon Tea experience – for pets and people – is served Wednesday-Sunday at 3:00, 3:15 and 3:30 p.m. and priced at $39 for adults, $18 for children age 12 and under and $20 per pet (excluding gratuity).
