The Red Carnation Hotel Collection, however, is not only pet friendly but also proudly pet centered; every property offers a range of luxurious items and services designed to ensure an indulgent vacation for all pets (as well as their owners).
Floor mats, plush bedding, specially prepared menus, and food and drink bowls are available in every Red Carnation property as well as dog walking and sitting services. On-site “Pet Concierges” are readily available to recommend the best local grooming and veterinary services, and many hotels are within walking distance of public parks and beaches that are just begging to be explored.
The Milestone Hotel and ‘41' take pet offerings to an entirely new level with exceptional services such as birthday celebrations (complete with a specialty birthday cake), custom-made beds and duvets, sumptuous pet bathrobes and nightly turndown treats.
Other hotels also offer exclusive pet packages, including Summer Lodge's “Pampered Pooch.” This package can be added to any dog-friendly room and includes homemade biscuits, Lily's Kitchen dog food menu offerings, a dog wash station, dog beds, food and water bowls, “woof” towels, and a list of nearby parks, beaches and coastal walks.
Red Carnation Hotels' Founder and President Beatrice Tollman is a notorious dog lover and she has imparted this passion to her staff. Several properties even have their own feline and canine mascots who keep guests and staff company. Summer Lodge's resident cat Felix often sits at the reception desk to assist with check-in while The Oyster Box is home to Skabenga, a handsome cat who wandered into the property 10 years ago and decided not to leave. In Ireland, the iconic Ashford Castle is home to Garvan and Cronin, two gorgeous Irish wolfhounds, and a small community of both horses and falcons. Meanwhile, at The Egerton House Hotel , Milly the Jack Russell is a sociable favorite who often fields requests from guests asking to play with her.
