Jet Set Pet: Nashville's Hermitage Hotel Named America's Best Pet-Friendly Hotel
The travel site conducted a survey of more than 1,200 U.S. travelers to find their preferred places to stay when traveling with furry friends.

Noting that The Hermitage Hotels Pampering Pet program was exceptional, TripAdvisor®, praised the hotel for providing treats upon check-in, cozy beds, and a menu of delicacies to satisfy animal appetites. The hotel offers guests traveling with their pet custom-made beds, room service from pet menus prepared by the hotels award-winning chefs, grooming and dog walking services.

This honor is made all the more special because it comes from the recommendations and accolades of our former guests, said Janet Kurtz, the hotels director of sales and marketing. As a dog owner myself, I understand how at-home it makes one feel when you can stay with your pet.

The Hermitage Hotel is the only hotel in the South to be named to the annual list. Other luxury and boutique hotels included in the top 10 list were the Hotel Monaco in Portland, Ore., Nine Zero Hotel in Boston, Mass., The Broadmoor in Colorado Springs, Colo., Hyatt Regency Scottsdale Resort and Spa at Gainey Ranch in Scottsdale, Ariz., Hotel Solamar in San Diego, Calif., and the Loews Coronado Bay Resort in Coranado, Calif.

According to the survey, 61 percent of pet owners traveled with their pets last year and 26 percent consider their pet an inseparable part of the family that goes everywhere with them. Fourteen percent of owners feel that bringing the family pet with them on vacation is more cost-effective than using a kennel.
