    Easy to rate five bones!

    Great view from our room on the sixth floor (my dogs enjoy the higher floors). Staff was wonderful, room service was yummy, parking was easy. What's not to love?

    My 2 big dogs were treated well. Staff were professional. The room was very clean. Only problem was that warm water came out of cold faucet and was undrinkable but they gave us some complimentary bottle water.

    No hassle

    We really enjoyed our stay. There was no hassle at check-in. The grass,walking area is small, but there's a public dog park a couple of blocks away.

    The staff was incredible- they treated my Lab- Becka as royalty!

    She had the best time there! It really felt like doggie concierge service! Everyone there from the initial meeting with the door man to the front desk associate!

    Great, dog-friendly staff

    Had a great stay here. Staff couldn't have been nicer to my pup.

    Hotel is a block from a ton of dog friendly restaurants on the market square.

    Good for dogs, minor issues

    Great downtown location when it comes to finding restaurants. However, the location meant limited grassy areas surrounding the hotel. After we left at daylight, we noticed a dog park about two blocks away. The staff was very nice to our dogs, offering them treats and not being upset when one of our dogs barked in the lobby. We had a nice room on the 6th floor that didn't seem to be relegated to dog owners. Parking was an issue for us since we were towing a Wells Cargo trailer -- we had to park behind the hotel, which made for a long walk with bags and dogs in tow. And, we still were charged the $10 parking fee.
