Travel Agent News for Red Carnation Hotels and Resorts

Spoil your four-legged friend with doggy teas, gourmet pet menus, and other treats



DELRAY BEACH, Fla., August 22, 2018 — Whether your beloved pooch is a lazy lapdog or high-energy hound, it deserves to stay in a luxury hotel when traveling with you. With National Dog Day just around the corner (August 26), The Red Carnation Hotel Collection would like to remind travelers that all 17 of our hotels are renowned for their pet-friendliness – we go above and beyond to make hotel stays memorable for both our four-legged guests and their human companions


Our pet-friendly philosophy comes from the top – our founder and president, Beatrice Tollman, is a life-long dog lover and always travels with her golden dachshunds, Honey and Ansi. Staff in all our hotels in Palm Beach, London, Geneva, Guernsey, Ireland and South Africa reflect the same welcoming attitude and love of pets, and many of our properties even have their own pet mascots.


Here are a few special amenities and packages that your VIP (Very Important Pet) can expect at four of our hotels:


Pups Stay in Jet-Set Style at The Chesterfield Palm Beach, Florida: Furry companions are treated like true members of the Palm Beach glitteratiwhen they stay at The Chesterfield Palm Beach, a beautiful 1920s-era Italianate boutique hotel located in the heart of swank Palm Beach Island. Upon arrival pups are greeted with a welcome basket of toys and treats, and throughout their stay are spoiled with a special gourmet pet menu , plush doggy beds and grooming services. Outside the hotel pets can strut their stuff on Worth Avenue (the Rodeo Drive of Palm Beach), or take a stroll on the dog-friendly Palm Beach Lake Trail, which weaves its way between the coast and the famous mansions of Palm Beach. Rooms are priced from $157 per night, plus a $90 non-refundable pet fee.


A Country Escape for Your Pooch at Summer Lodge or The Acorn Inn, Dorset, UK: For dogs and owners seeking an escape in the idyllic English countryside, Red Carnation offers two charming hotels in the lovely Dorset town of Evershot.
