When we decided to drive from TX to NY with our dogs, we wanted to find a pet friendly hotel along the way. We found the Loews Vanderbilt on "bringfido.com" and upon reading reviews we decided this seemed like a great spot for our dogs. Next, we checked trip advisor and saw that the hotel also had good reviews from people. We checked in on a Saturday early evening and the person that checked us in did a great job of making us feel welcome with our pets. We were checked in quickly so we could get to our room after our 9 hour drive. The bellman did a great job recommending local restaurants and telling us where to walk the dogs. We decided to dine in Masons that evening, which was very nice. Great southern food with a French twist. When we went back to our room, the staff had brought our furry friends dog bowls, food, treats and bottled waters. The following morning we had breakfast at Masons and checked out so we could continue our road trip. We had a wonderful stay at the Loews Vanderbilt and can't wait to go back this week for the trip back home. The hotel has a specific floor just for pet owners, so other guests are not bothered if they do not have pets. We will not hesitate to stay at the Loews Vanderbilt again with or without or dogs. It is an extremely clean hotel, which my wife really appreciates and the staff is wonderful.
