Renaissance New York Times Square Hotel Welcomes Furry Friends

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Nov 11, 2014) - Add joy to your New York City travel itinerary by bringing your pet along and taking advantage of pet-friendly accommodations at the Renaissance New York Times Square Hotel.

Pets are welcomed with special amenities and even a list of local pet-friendly attractions, at this stylish boutique hotel, that knows the importance of worry-free travel. Encouraging guests to share travel time with their pet brings added comfort that can only be provided by a furry 'best friend.' By eliminating the worry of leaving a pet at home, this is a great way to ensure an exceptional travel experience.

The attentive staff of this pet-friendly hotel, who pamper pets with services during a stay in Times Square, is happy to provide a cozy pet bed, pet bowls and even a special treat, so pets can settle in and enjoy their retreat. The Renaissance New York Times Square Hotel has created a fun infographic to draw attention to the many pet-friendly things to do, in the city that never sleeps. The infographic features restaurants, specialty shops, festivals and events inspired by the millions of dogs and cats that help make life's journey more enjoyable.

An oasis of pet-friendly establishments, New York City is filled with parks, businesses and services that welcome pets to dine, play, be pampered and even shop. From bakeries, featuring gourmet dog biscuits and snack stands with special pet menus, to fun eateries such as Fetch Bar & Grill, famous for their original Philadelphia cheese steak -- or the Barking Dog Luncheonette, which features convenient outdoor doggy watering fountains, bringing your dog to New York City is well-accepted.

For a full day of fun, start early with a stroll in Central Park, where dogs can go unleashed before 9:00AM in many areas; or strike up a game of Frisbee at Socrates Sculpture Park. Athletic canines might enjoy a swim at Long Meadow Dog Beach or the rolling hills of Sir William's Dog Run, the city's largest enclosed area for dogs. After a frolic in the city, take your friend for a pampering "pawdicure" at Spot, full-service grooming at Le Pet Spa, or explore shops and boutiques filled with organic apparel, designer look-alike clothes, unique treats and pet care products.
