          Is your hotel pet-friendly? I have a large goldendoodle dog, very friendly, clean, minimal shedding and mostly hypo-allergenic that will be traveling with me.

          LEF61 - Unfortunately our hotel is not pet friendly. We recommend checking out one of our sister hotels, the Residence Inns. They offer pet friendly rooms!
