Hi Gerald H,
We are a pet friendly hotel. There is a $75 non refundable fee for a pet but we do allow them. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me directly at the hotel.
Don't get discouraged ! Aloft hotel along with several others in Richmonds West end waive the pet deposit.
