Hey everyone, Tucker here! My parents just told me we’re about to start planning a new trip. They aren’t sure where yet, but I want to look at some great pet friendly hotel chains so they have some options - any place is a great place with my pet parents! I felt like I was chasing my own tail in circles when I found the Magnuson Hotel chain. They really want all their guests to feel at home, even pets like me, by treating every family uniquely to make sure they have the best experience possible. That’s something I know my parents will appreciate!
I did some digging and found Magnuson Hotel’s Senior Marketing Manager, Amanda Rosowski, and decided to get in contact with her to ask how pet friendly their accommodations are and what we can expect.
Tucker: So how many locations are available for me and my pet parents to choose from?
Amanda: There are around 100 branded Magnuson hotels in the USA and UK. If you add in our independent partner hotels, we’ve got nearly 8,000 locations! We even have two headquarters - Spokane, WA and London, UK, where I am based! Of those, we have 42 pet friendly properties listed on the TripsWithPets.com website, and they are all excited to welcome furry friends like you, Tucker!
We think the Magnuson Grand Hotel and Conference Center in Raymond, IL is an especially amazing place to take your pet because of all the wide open spaces. Small and medium pets will have 10 acres to run around in with a rock and flower garden, as well as a fishing pond to lounge beside at this resort-style hotel.
Tucker: Is there anything especially pet friendly about your company we should know about?
Amanda: We don’t like to be cookie-cutter, so each one of our hotels will cater to your pet in its own way. Some of our hotels even have specifically designed rooms with pet entertainment. And, while many of our locations welcome pets of all types and sizes, we have one hotel down south that had to specify “NO GATORS” -- true story!
In addition, our head office in Spokane is very dog-friendly. It’s home to several pooches, including two prize-winning Vizslas!
Tucker: Unique treatment for each pet AND no gators? Sounds like my kind of place! Is there anything else that sets your hotels apart that my pet parents should know?
Amanda: All Magnuson Hotels are individually owned and operated, so people and their pets are welcomed as personal guests. Many pet parents and their furkids often receive a welcome from the hotel owners themselves. Also, guests who book directly via our website can enjoy the benefits of our Magnuson Rewards Program where they can get gift cards to use in the real world!
Tucker: Wow, it sure does sound like Magnuson Hotels have a lot to offer people traveling with their pets, and their furry family members! Thank you so much for all the help. My parents will be so excited to hear about all the possibilities that Magnuson Hotels have to offer for our next trip. I can’t wait to start packing . . . now where did I hide that bone?
