Marcus® Hotels & Resorts Kicks Off the Busy Summer Travel Season at Pet Friendly Destinations

The busy summer travel season is just around the corner. For those traveling with their Fido friends, what better way to enjoy it than to stay in a pet friendly destination? Marcus® Hotels & Resorts, a leading national hotel management company is welcoming pet travel companions at several of its pet-friendly properties nationwide.

One out of three pet owners take their pets with them if they leave for more than two nights according to the American Pet Products Association. “In order to accommodate this demand, many of our pet-friendly properties pull out all the stops to make our four-legged friends feel at home when staying with us. They receive a warm welcome, a variety of important amenities such as a goody bag filled with treats and toys, and a pet bed for proper sleeping arrangements. Our friendly hotel staff is also available to accommodate any pet needs and is even prepared to give a pet or belly rub in a moment’s notice. At any of our pet-friendly properties, our furry friends are sure to get a VIP pooch experience,” said Joseph Khairallah, chief operating officer of Marcus Hotels & Resorts.
