More than any other time in history, pets are treated as valued members of the family. A survey by the American Hotel & Lodging Association found that 51 percent of U.S. hotels allow pets, and Trip Advisor found that 53 percent of 1,100 participants travel with their pets. Of those, 52 percent will only consider pet-friendly properties. While traveling with pets remains complex as weather and triggers are uncontrollable, hotels can be their guest’s best friend by giving pets everything they need to feel comfortable and safe.
Pet waste disposal stations

Pets and owners want the freedom of the great outdoors without worrying about leaving piles of fecal matter around for the inconvenience of others. Ideal for any outdoor area, the Regal, Imperial and Monarch stations are constructed from galvanized steel and contain the necessity of proper disposal via a locking bag dispenser and receptacles.
