Are you thinking about visiting Portland, Oregon, and were hoping to take your furry companion along but don’t know where they could stay? Well, when it comes to the City of Roses, look no further than Jupiter Hotel, an independent boutique hotel that recently introduced its Inner Animal Pet Package, which was curated by a local woman-owned pet shop.
Jupiter Hotel, a renovated 1962 motor lodge, and Jupiter NEXT, the elevated expansion next door, have unveiled their new in-room package partnership with Meat for Cats and Dogs. The pet package, which costs $65, includes the following:
-Beaz Knees handmade fleece tug toy
-Northwest-made organic Chow Down dog treats
-Petrageous double stainless steel bowls
-Jupiter Hotel pet t-shirt (small/medium/large) or other item
The package also includes a discount to Meat for Cats and Dogs, a local pet supply store that specializes in raw food and holistic diets for cats and dogs. Owned by Heidi Leideker, the store is a few blocks away from Jupiter Hotel and allows guests to shop with their four-legged friends.
While Jupiter Hotel’s pet package is aimed at dogs, Jupiter NEXT has begun to welcome such animals as potbelly pigs, therapy llamas, cats and more. Guests are advised to make the front desk aware of what type of pet they have so the staff can adjust the package accordingly.
Here is Jupiter Hotel’s Pet Policy, as per its website:
“No more than one pet may be housed in any guest room without prior approval of management. A non-refundable pet fee of $35 will be charged for each guest room. Service animals for people with disabilities will be exempt of these charges. Emotional Support Animals are subject to the fee.
“The Jupiter Hotel reserves the right to refuse housing of any pet at its sole discretion for any reason.
“Outside the guest room, pets must be kept on a leash or in a carrier at all times and owners must clean up after their pet. Cat owners must provide their own litter and litter boxes for their pet.
“If a complaint is received about a noisy or aggressive pet, the owner will be contacted. If the problem persists, the owner will be asked to remove the pet from the property and may be held responsible for any complaints received from other guests due to the pet. The Jupiter Hotel is not responsible for unattended pets that may exit the guest room entry door.
“We reserve the right to refuse housekeeping services for those guest rooms with an unattended pet not confined to a carrier.
“Guests will be held responsible for any damage caused by or liability arising from his/her pet to any person, the guest room or any other area of the hotel, and will be charged a minimum fee of $150. Payment of the pet fee does not relieve the guest of this responsibility.”
