My wife and I have been fans of this property for many years. We stayed for two nights during the Fourth of July Holiday and opted to cut our trip short and check out early. Many aspects of the property met our expectations with one key exception. Dogs everywhere. Dogs in the hallway. Dogs in the elevators. Dogs in the main lobby. Dogs in the SPA lobby. Dogs in the rooms. The occupants of the room next to us chose to lock their two dogs in the room and place the Do Not Disturb sign on the door throughout the day. The dogs would bark and yelp incessantly. We have scoured the hotel's website for information on the pet policy. No luck. There is no question pets had been in our room. We are dog lovers but the thought of staying in a premium resort knowing someone's pet has likely shared the furniture in our room with us is beyond our comfort zone. We shared this experience with friends who have stayed at the property. They were shocked as well. We totally get the "Austin" PAW angle on this but guests should be notified in advance that rooms are pet friendly.
