St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) April 9, 2009
The Renaissance Hotel St. Louis Airport has recently become a dog friendly hotel. "Well mannered" dogs are accepted in the St. Louis hotel with a $50 deposit upon check-in. The hotel is one of only two full service airport hotels in St. Louis who welcome the furry companions.
Adding a new clientele to the Renaissance St. Louis, Missouri hotel will benefit both pet owners and the hotel in St. Louis. According to a survey conducted by TripAdvisor.com, "among people that own pets, 61 percent have traveled with a pet and 17 percent said the number one reason they travel with their pet(s) is they enjoy spending vacation with them. Sixty-five percent of survey respondents own a pet." Bill Fontes, General Manager for the Renaissance Hotel St. Louis Airport expressed his excitement by saying, "people who love their dogs treat them as part of the family and so we are delighted to welcome them to be a part of our family."
Mr. Fontes also noted that during these challenging economic times, "The price of putting animals in kennels can add hundreds of dollars to the cost of a short vacation - so pack your pooch and enjoy spending the extra money you save at some of St. Louis's top attractions including the Arch, Anheuser-Busch Brewery tours, and Forrest Park which includes the Zoo, History Museum, Art Museum and the "MUNY."
