Loden Hotel Relaunches Pet-Friendly Experiences, Introducing WanderPET Outdoor Excursions and Canada’s First Pet Minibar

Loden Hotel is revamping its pet-friendly experiences with upgraded offerings that give four-legged guests the same pampering and relaxation as their owners. Pets have always been welcome at the Loden, receiving their own pet bed, dog bowls, house-made snacks, and a copy of Modern Dog magazine. Now expanding on the hotel’s pet-friendly offerings, the Loden is introducing the country’s first Pet Minibar, an in-room amenity designed to keep your pup cozy, fed, and entertained throughout your stay. Also included in pet stays will be a gourmet Pet Menu, with a selection of nutritious meals for in-room dining and an evening turndown with water and house-made dog treats. Many of the hotel’s services also now feature options custom-tailored to pets, like spa bookings and grooming, and WanderPET, a dog-friendly exercise program that builds on the Loden’s successful outdoor WanderFIT excursions. The new Luxury Pet Experience is available now for bookings as of October 15, 2017.

The Pet Minibar, like its human-targeted equivalent, includes everything your dog needs to feel at home in your Guest Room, whether it’s premium natural snacks, entertainment or necessities for your trip together. Indulging in room service for yourself? While you enjoy your dinner and a glass of wine, Fido can choose a meal from the new gourmet Pet Menu or something from the Minibar, like a delicious locally-made natural treat made just for dogs, and will keep busy playing with a new toy shaped like a beer can. Or if you’re heading out on the town together, the Loden knows you both want to look your best; your animal companion will want to have a quick grooming session too, so make use of the handy toothbrush and freshening toothpaste made for canines. In addition to the Pet Minibar, the experience includes other amenities to make any dog’s stay as seamless as possible, like a leash and rain jacket for your pup to use and take home if you wish, a cozy pet-sized Loden robe for in-room enjoyment, and optional add-on spa services. 10% of proceeds from the Pet Minibar will be donated to the BC SPCA.

Also new to the Loden is WanderPET, a riff on the hotel's exclusive WanderFIT outdoor adventure programs. WanderFIT, the fitness excursions for human guests, gets people outside to enjoy cycling or hiking on local mountains. The new dog-oriented WanderPET will see licensed dog walkers taking your furry friend outside for some well-deserved playtime. WanderPET tours will have your pet visiting a local park, beach, or trail, where it will get fresh air and exercise and will have a great time working off those extra treats from the Pet Minibar. The WanderPET excursion includes pick-up and drop-off at the hotel.  

As of October 15th, all pet guests will enjoy:

Food and water bowls
Cozy dog bed
Pet robe for a luxurious stay
Nightly turndown service
