All Aboard to Salt Lake City!

All Aboard to Salt Lake City!

Nestled in the mountains of Northern Utah, Salt Lake City was a breathtaking place to visit during our road trip last Spring. One of the coolest things was visiting the City Creek Center, a shopping mecca that, wait for it….is PET FRIENDLY!!

That’s right, Henry & Penny strutted their stuff up and down the beautifully designed outdoor.

AND indoor spaces of the mall, and got lots of attention in the process.

One of the best part of our stay was being hosted by TownePlace Suites by Marriott Salt Lake City, where GM Travis and the fabulous staff were incredibly friendly and gave us belly rubs the whole time. The location was super convenient and our room was amazing, and it really enhanced our whole stay in Salt Lake City.

Although dogs are not allowed, it was still really neat to walk by the Mormon complex of Temple Square, the foundation of Salt Lake City.

We made it up to the City Capitol with a great view of the city and surrounding area.

We also made a stop at The Gateway, an outdoor shopping and entertainment complex where a scavenger hunt was going on and we also got to meet up with our friend comedian Dan Soder for a show which just happened to work out!

One afternoon while in SLC we just drove up the mountains right in town and wandered the neighborhoods higher up, and honestly this was one of the most incredible experiences because everywhere you looked there were just amazing views and mountains for miles. We cannot wait to return to Salt Lake City!

*Henry was recovering from an upper respiratory infection so he may look a little out of it. We took it very easy with him and made sure he was comfortable while having as much fun as possible!

Being French Bulldogs, we know a thing or two about living the pampered life. When our humans decided to get married and plan a 2 month road trip, we offered to be co-pilots and help them out! So we thought it would be great to share with all our canine pals the BEST places to stay when you are traveling!

Check out some of our recommendations below where we felt like VIPs (Very Important Pups!)

Vancouver, Canada - The Sutton Place Hotel
Boy, was this place incredible, we even had our own suite with French(ie) Doors and an incredible view of this beautiful city. It was super comfortable and even though we were right in the city, it was also quiet and conveniently located. Upon arrival, we found the following items in our room: GIANT dog beds (one for each of us!), food and water bowls, toys AND treats!
Pet info: Allows two pets up to 45 lbs. with an additional fee of CAD $40 per stay.

Salt Lake City,
UT - TownePlace Suites
Make sure to ask for Travis, he's the best! This place was fancy without being pretentious, and the staff was so incredibly nice - we miss them (and their amazing belly rubs!) Plus SLC is such a cool place to visit.
Pet info: 2 pets 50 pounds max per room with USD 100 non-refundable fee per room per stay

TN - World Famous Landmark Peabody Hotel
Penny was on a mission to find the ducks that walk to the fountain in the lobby twice a day. The lobby of the hotel reminded us of Grand Central Station in NYC where Henry & Penny are originally from, so they felt right at home :)
Pet info: Accepts two pets up to 75 lbs for an additional fee of $100 per stay.

Las Vegas, NV - The Flamingo
We would love to tell you all about how great our stay was here, but since what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, we were sworn to you just have to check it out for yourself!
Pet info: Welcomes two dogs up to 50 lbs for an additional fee of $85 per night, plus a $100 refundable deposit per night.

Red Roof Inn - They are a pet traveler's best friend, with locations all across the country and no frills accommodations. The best part is they have NO PET FEES!!! That's pet fees at all! Plus, they have free coffee all day long for the humans so they can keep up with us! So bring your dogs with you, Red Roof has your back! They also offer 10% off with the code: VP# 604673
We stayed at Red Roof Inn in the following locations:
Nashville, TN - Red Roof PLUS+ Nashville Airport
San Diego, CA - Red Roof Inn San Diego/Pacific Beach
Los Angeles, CA - Red Roof Inn San Dimas
San Francisco, CA - Red Roof PLUS+ San Francisco Airport
Seattle, WA -  Red Roof Inn Seattle Airport
Monterrey, CA - Red Roof Inn & Suites Monterrey
Grand Junction, CO - Red Roof Inn Grand Junction
Chicago, IL - St. Clair Hotel - We had an extra special stay in Chicago at the St. Clair Hotel, a Red Roof property, and it was amazing!! It was a luxury brand of their hotels and right downtown - loved it here!

No matter what hotel you choose, we can all agree that travel is more fun when you can bring your best friend(s) along. And having  a comfortable place to stay makes it even better 🐶❤️🐾
