Atlas and I are going to travel the
Our first trip is to
The hotel itself from a human stand-point is lovely, fresh and modern. It's an old building from the 1920s but has been completely updated, although they've kept some of the architectural details, such as the molding and crystal door knobs. Which I love. From Atlas' view it's not too bad either. There are some grassy areas right outside of the hotel. We went on a 15-minute walk near the hotel, there are sidewalks and some good grassy spots. This is a downtown area though so it should be expected that it's not a pristine walk, but it was decent. They left us a little goody-bag. But, boo there were no dog bones---but Atlas did appreciate the peanut butter crackers. (Yeah I let him have a snack now and then!)
I love the king sized bed---so comfortable and I didn't have to use my own feather pillow, the pillows and bedding are top-notch. The bathroom has modern fixtures and Aveda toiletries. Since it is an old building there are a few random pipes in odd places but this doesn't bother me, I think it adds to the charm. Atlas likes the pillows too as you can see in the pics. He is a big pillow dog, he knows a good pillow when he finds one.
We're getting ready to go to Kahwa, a dog-friendly coffee shop/cafe for breakfast and then to
Atlas and Rachel--signing off!
