Pet-friendly hotels aren’t anything new, but few hospitality companies have done as much to overtly welcome your furry four-legged friends as much as MGM Resorts International.
With the launch of its expanded dog-program—available now, at all thirteen of MGM Resorts International’s Las Vegas properties (Aria, Bellagio, Delano Las Vegas, Excaliber, Luxor, MGM Grand, Mandalay Bay, The Mirage, New York-New York, NoMad Las Vegas, Park MGM, Signature at MGM Grand and Vdara), as well as MGM Springfield (Springfield, MA), Beau Rivage Resort & Casino (Biloxi, MS), and MGM Detroit (Detroit, MI)— this elevated level of service begins at check-in, when you are given complimentary dog treats and a map showing the locations of the property’s relief areas, as well as information on the Doggie Concierge services offered, and amenities such as dog bowls and mats.
And when you’re ready to step away from your accommodations (whether to play the river or raise the roof), you don’t need to worry about your canine companion; because thanks to the Doggie Concierge, you can opt for service packages such as the Check-In and Check-Up—whereby the DC will go to your room to make sure your pup is comfortable, text you a photo confirmation, and probably administer a belly-rub or back-scratch—or purchase a Buddy Box (a trio of treats, a pair of toys, and a bandana that’ll have you looking your little Shih Tzu in the eye and saying “Bitch, please”). There’s even a special menu (a doggie dégustation, if you will); though the options vary by property. Naturally, nature will call, so your Doggie Concierge will be happy to arrange for dog-walking services.
A few odds and ends: Dog-friendly rooms and suites are available for a daily charge of $50-175/day (depending on the property); with a limit of two dogs per room and a combined maximum weight that cannot exceed 100 pounds. Dogs must be housetrained, and cannot be left unattended in rooms or suites, at any time, unless placed in a kennel or carrier. Dogs must be on leashes whenever outside of rooms or suites.
As Augie Daddy used to reply to his father, on The Quick Draw McGraw Show (1959), “Okey dokey, Doggy Daddy!”
