Caesars Palace Las Vegas becomes dog-friendly

LAS VEGAS Harrah’s Entertainment properties Caesars Palace, Imperial Palace and Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino are launching “PetStay Las Vegas,” a new pet-friendly hotel program. The three resorts now permit guests to check in with dogs, and they are offering a series of doggie amenities.

Each resort has a designated PetStay area within the hotel, equipped with welcome packets that direct guests to outdoor relief areas and dog-walking routes, as well as specialty roomservice menus.

“With designated hotel guestrooms and a full roster of amenities and services, we are confident that dog lovers will enjoy the perfect Las Vegas getaway at our three resort-hotels,” says Mary Ann Dennis, Harrah’s vice president of regional teleservices.

Guests participating in the PetStay program are greeted by canine-friendly in-room amenities including a mat, food and water dishes, disposable waste bags and dog treats. Information about additional dog-friendly items for purchase and nearby dog services such as grooming, walking and veterinary care is available upon check-in.

Dogs must weigh 50 pounds or less and be present at the time of check-in. Dogs are permitted to walk through designated common areas while on a leash and accompanied by the owner. Dogs left unattended in a guestroom must be crated at all times; crates are available for rental.

Caesars Palace is charging a US$25 per night premium for pet-friendly hotel accommodations in the Augustus Tower. The premium is US$20 per night at Rio and Imperial Palace.
