In Utah and throughout the country, high-end hotels are welcoming a whole new breed of guest—the four-legged kind. In downtown Salt Lake City, pet-friendly Hotel Monaco pampers pooches, beginning with a plush doggie bed. Other amenities include a welcome note, food bowls, treats and toys, and if Rover is feeling lonely, a goldfish is provided to keep him company. Wondering if any other pets have checked in? Look over the lobby's bone-shaped chalkboard listing the names of other visiting canines—and feline too.
