We’ve found a hotel in Salt Lake City that lets us bring our dog, Hotel Manaco. Yes, we’re that pathetic. We travel from time to time and always lament that the places we stay don’t allow little Henry to join us. We wanted to do an in-town getaway but didn’t want to ask our friends again to stay with Henry, thus we went on our hunt.
It never occured to me that dogs rarely experience elevators (at least Salt Lake City-based Portuguese Waterdogs). We loaded Henry up in the elevator and went to the 9th floor window facing the great Walker Building. I imagine the elevator was a disorienting experience for a dog. Henry was somewhere between a standing and sitting position the whole, but never completely either one.
If you’re coming to Utah for Sundance or Alt Summit or skiing or Outdoor Retailers and you are bringing your dog, go to Hotel Monaco. We really loved it and so did Henry. Disclaimer, dogs probably aren’t allowed on their furniture, Henry jumped on the bed as I was taking the photo. It’s his fault, not mine.
That night we stayed in with Henry, ordered room service and watched Downton Abbey. Not a bad night.
