We usually don't go anywhere with out our dogs. So when we found out this is a dog friendly hotel I jumped at the chance to make a family trip. While making the arrangements months in advance I had told the reservations department we had two large dogs. Both over 50lbs. This they said was not a problem. We were so excited. So the trip was planned. Well the night before I decided, since we were traveling quit a distance, to call and confirm. Well, what started out to be a simple trip almost turned bad! Not only did the front desk keep transferring me to someone else who would then transfer me back to the front desk, that person would then put me on hold. I had to keep hanging up and calling back. The not so nice front desk person on duty then informed me they only took one dog and it had to be 25lbs. So we could take the chance and come down if we wanted too! Well I had all my notes for the original confimation and I informed him we would be coming and they would honor this. Well of course I went on to work on a back of plan if we wound up with no place to stay. I had bought this deal thru TravelZoo and it could not be refunded or used at a different date so off we went. We had plans with family in the area and I was not about to disappoint my nephew, who had been waiting for weeks to see us! We drove down and along the way I figured I would give another try to speaking with someone else and this is where Hichem Aloulou comes in. He promised me he would see to our stay and we would have no trouble. I was the first to go in to the hotel. After the crazy mass confusion of the original reservations and phone calls the night before I was taking no chances. I was alittle unsure of the trustworthiness of this adventure with good cause. Well I was immediately greeted by Hichem Aloulou who knew who I was and he was so pleasant and professional. This whole stay was turned around by the wonderful Manager on Duty Hichem Aloulou. I went out and got my husband, daughter and the 2 dogs. They staff looked alittle unsure as to what was going on at first but then all was well. They warmed up to the dogs after seeing they really are just like little children. We had a wonderful stay and the room was perfect the way it was. All guests with dogs are required to stay on the first floor. These rooms are a one bedroom and a living room with a kitchen. Which by the way is equipped with a sink and dishes. Perfect for us since you have to stay with the dogs in the room we ordered from a local pizza place and had dinner in! They said they are doing renovations and upgrades but this was not a problem at all. Hichem went out of his way to make our stay so pleasant it actually felt as comfortable as being at home. Hichem even brought us up another lamp after I had mentioned I was having a hard time reading because the room was too dark. Everything from bones in the main entrance for the dogs, dog beds, water bowls for the dogs, games for the kids in the lobby toy chest, wine for the adults in the library, breakfast in the morning and an all around feel of sophistication but home town charm! The neighborhood is dog friendly which was great because it gave us a chance to go exploring and see all the history they have to offer. The rest of the staff was wonderful too! We will be back! Please give them a try they really are worth it!
