Why Pet-Friendly Hotels are Taking Over Travel and Hospitality Trends

As we ourselves have taken note, the hotel industry is experiencing a boom in pet-friendly guest experiences.  It’s a feature that we, here at Kinn Guesthouse, and countless others are offering travelers and their four-legged companions.  And, we’re finding that this is one feature that’s winning over new customers coming from both near and far. So, why are we and so many countless others offering this amenity? Each year, people spend billions of dollars just on their pets, and that number is only going to continue to rise as travelers are specifically seeking out accommodations for the entire family.  From a hotel owner’s perspective, this is fantastic news, as those offering pet-friendly stays have an easier time convincing travelers to book rooms at their property since the majority of hotels still don’t offer this convenience.  Of course, we think that this will soon change, and more and more places will [...]
