PAWS “Pets Are Welcome at Sonesta” Pet-Friendly Program Debuts for National Pet Month

According to a recent survey by Wag!, the #1 app for pet parents, 28% of people travel frequently with their dog(s), and another 29% say they would travel more if they could take their dogs.

In celebration of National Pet Month in May, Sonesta is making it easier to travel with your pet with the debut of a new pet-friendly program, PAWS “Pets Are Welcome at Sonesta”, available at nearly 300 hotels nationwide. With the summer travel season around the corner, the PAWS program offers amenities to pamper every pet – welcoming all well-mannered pets, with no breed or weight restrictions, and up to two pets permitted per room or suite.



The PAWS program provides guests traveling with their furry companion with following:

  • Welcome letter that includes a list of local area dog parks, pet hospitals and pet stores
  • Complimentary dog treats at check-in
  • Water dish
  • Feeding bowl
  • Waterproof feeding mat
  • Cozy pet bed (at full-service properties)
  • Door hanger or magnet to identify a pet inside the guest room

In addition, Sonesta has created a pet-friendly marketplace at many of the hotels that offers PAWS branded items such as leashes, bandanas, tennis balls, and pet waste bags available for purchase.

The new PAWS pet-friendly program is available across Sonesta’s U.S. portfolio of five brands. The minimum fee is $75 per stay at Royal Sonesta, Sonesta Hotels & Resorts, Sonesta Select, or a minimum of $75 for stays up to seven nights, and $25 per week thereafter applies at Sonesta ES Suites and Sonesta Simply Suites.



Guests are encouraged to contact the individual property or central reservations at 1.800.SONESTA (766.3782) to make arrangements for their pets prior to arrival. For more information or to make reservations, please visit
