Pamper your four-legged companion at the pet-friendly The Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel in Dana Point, California with the Posh Pooch experience. For a one-time nonrefundable pet-cleaning fee of $150 and a $50 per night boarding fee (in addition to the regular room rate), your clients can bring their pup or kitty on vacation to this Mediterranean-style luxury hotel, which sits atop a 150-ft, oceanfront bluff. This indulgent upgrade includes a hand-painted bowl to enjoy while staying at the resort, a lush doggie bed and a chew toy, plus dog waste bags and a Vista View walking trail map.
Take note that no more than two pets may occupy each guestroom, and all pets must be leashed or held in arms in all common areas of the resort. Pets are not allowed in the fitness center and spa, the pool areas, the Ritz-Carlton Club Level lounge, or hotel’s restaurants or bar, so when your furry friend gets hungry your clients can order pet food from a special menu through the resort’s room service. Scrumptious menu items include bow wow tenderloin, dog bone meatloaf and kitty’s salmon supreme. Pet meals start at $10 and include a bottle of Fiji Spring Water. Make sure to mention the resort’s 2016 Yappy Hour as well. On one Thursday each month through September, The Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel will host a pet-friendly soiree complete with bacon-, chicken-, beef- or vegan-flavored water for your pooch and cleverly named drinks such as Mutt Lynch Unleashed Chardonnay, Merlot Over and Play Dead, or Chateau d’Og Cabernet Sauvignon libations for your clients. Regular room rates start at $549 per night. For more information, call (949) 240-2000 or visit ritzcarlton.com/en/hotels/california/laguna-niguel.
