The last time I stayed at Seattle’s Four Seasons Hotel, the brand was attached to the Olympic Hotel, a grande dame of a hotel built in 1924 and now a Fairmont property. The new Four Seasons opened last year, and is a modern building across the street from the Seattle Art Museum and about a block south of the Pike Place Market (it’s also next door to a beloved Seattle institution, the Lusty Lady peepshow and its irrepressible marquee). The Four Seasons website doesn’t make it easy to find out what the company’s pet policy is, but I learned through an exchange of e-mails that the Four Seasons properties are all pet-friendly. Dogs weighing less than 15 lbs. are welcome at all of the hotels. There are no specific programs targeting pets, but this picture, taken at the Seattle Four Seasons, strongly suggests that dogs are pampered guests. If you stay at the Seattle Four Seasons (or any other Four Seasons property) with your small dog, please let me know about your visit!
