Patch recently took a tour of the hotel, which officially started welcoming four-legged guests on Nov. 18. The new facility is located at 1025 Hansen Way, Redwood City (you can't miss the enormous dog faces on the building when driving south on Hwy. 101).
This is a new concept in pet care, explained the staff members during the tour.
"Our number one goal is to provide your best friend the ultimate experience during his or her stay while giving you the peace of mind that your pet is safe, healthy and happy," said the tour guide.
Wag Hotels offer a variety of services and amenities, including hotel-style boarding, All Day Play/ Dog Day Care, training, grooming and spa services.
The hotel features open-air, loft-style facilities with play areas, swimming pools and peaceful private rooms for snoozing.
Overnight guests have their choice of accommodations--from cozy to cushy. Ultra Suites include an off-the-floor bed, flat screen TVs (complete with Netflix animal-themed movies), Pandora radio, a webcam, and even a bedtime story if the pooch so chooses.
And cats are also welcome at Wag Hotels. The "Cattery" has its own play area and a separate filtration system from the dogs, so the two species don't catch a whiff of one another during their stay.
In addition to Redwood City, there are Wag Hotels located in San Francisco and Sacramento. All three locations are open and provide care 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year and offer tours 10am to 6pm daily.
This Saturday, Dec. 7, from 11 a.m-3 p.m., Wag Hotels will host a holiday pet party complete with a pet psychic, doggie masseuse, treats for people and dogs, and more. The event benefits the Peninsula Humane Society.
